has been a Murray resident since 1985 and has been building musical instruments, primarily banjos, as a hobby since 1991. He can't remember a time in his life when he didn't love to build things. He helped to found the Utah Instrument Builder's Association (UIBA) and is still an active member of that organization.
Jon takes his artistic inspiration from things near and dear to his heart, including his faith, his ancestry and heritage, and his childhood memories.
Jon is a husband, father of seven grown daughters, and grandfather of three delightful children.
