Jon is a third-year law student at Mitchell Hamline in St. Paul and a legal intern at Klun Law.
Originally from Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, Jon graduated from the University of Ottawa with Honors in Political Science and Philosophy. While at the University of Ottawa, Jon took great pride in representing and promoting the university in his role as a Student Ambassador.
Jon also has extensive volunteer experience, having volunteered in South Africa with Volunteer Eco-Students Abroad. In South Africa, he helped build an orphanage, taught elementary school math, and assisted at a cheetah conservation reserve. However, Jon is most proud of his time as summer camp companion for kids with cancer through Camp Quality Canada.
Jon is an avid outdoorsman and sports fan who felt Ely would make for more than just a great summer legal experience. He loves the people and the town, especially the Rec Center’s basketball court. Jon is excited for his future up in northern Minnesota – even though it is down south for him!
