Jon has been in the hardware business for over 14 years. He started his career at Ace Hardware while still in high school. The owner of Ace Hardware took a chance on Jon by hiring him as a wiry young kid with lots of energy. Jon worked off some of that energy by stocking the Paint Department , lugging gallons of paint. And then it was onward and upward from that point forward. Jon is excellent at inventory control and really knows the products in his store. He enjoys the Lawn and Garden Department and also the Outdoor Living Department.
He is an avid outdoorsman and often accomplishes feats within the first few minutes of hunting and fishing trips. He shot his first deer within 10 minutes of entering the woods on opening day of his inaugural bow season. It only took him 5 minutes to land three 18” bass on a recent fishing trip.
