Feeling a bit camera shy

It wasn’t long after learning a few chords that Jon began trying his hand at writing songs. Being shy kept him from sharing his music outside of the family and friends for years. At age 17, Jon was given the opportunity to perform a few songs on stage at Sunset Park in Jennersville, PA, during a country music festival. That experience changed everything for him; not only helping him to realize that he wanted to pursue music as more than just a hobby, but also giving him the confidence he needed to try.
In 1978 Jon made Wisconsin his home. Shortly after settling in, he set out to explore his musical horizons. This excursion would ultimately span many years and find him doing everything from singing for weddings and funerals to “paying his dues” with various rock bands.
As time went on and Jon became a family man, he eventually returned to his musical roots, doing solo performances in the country and folk genres. Jon attributes his strongest musical influences to several great singer/songwriters, such as the late John Denver, Gordon Lightfoot, and Harry Chapin, as well as Seals & Crofts, and James Taylor.
This decision would end up affording him his first tastes of real recognition, and a (albeit brief) brush with fame throughout the 1990s.
First, Jim McDonald (formerly of the gospel group the Heritage Singers, as well as solo artist and owner of Jim McDonald Productions of San Diego, CA) recognized Jon’s gift as a singer/songwriter and invited him to record his song “Shadows Of A Candle,” which was included on a gospel variety album.
Sometime later the song charting organization Billboard presented Jon with three achievement awards, signifying that his songs “I Love You, Anyway” and “Could Be You” had both been judged among the top 12% nationwide in their songwriter’s contest, in both the country and gospel categories.
Finally, as a highlight of his secular music career, Jon was chosen to open for Tom Wopat (best known as “Luke Duke” from TV’s “The Dukes of Hazzard”) and the Full Moon Band (formerly Highway 101) before an estimated crowd of 10,000 at the 4th of July Sesquicentennial celebration in Columbus, Wisconsin, in 1998.
Jon continued performing in small venues for a few years until continued failures of aging equipment, and family financial needs forced him into “musical retirement.” Discouraged, he reluctantly cased up his guitars and put them in storage. This, however, would not be the end, but rather would merely be a lull before a new beginning.
After relocating to the quiet village of Fall River, Wisconsin, in the spring of 2004, Jon gradually began to become acquainted with a neighbor, Larry, who was also a guitar player. It was Larry who introduced Jon to more musicians who would end up playing a roll in the direction his life would eventually take.
In January of 2005, Jon experienced a significant health crisis. Through answered prayer he was healed, and as a result has rekindled his faith and has dedicated his life to praising the Lord. In June of 2006, Jon was baptized together with his wife, Shari, at the Wisconsin Camp Meeting by Pastors Steve Aust and Ric Swaningson. In the fall that year they accepted an invitation from Pastor Ric to become team members with Adventures In Prophecy. Jon now says, “No worldly achievements could ever equal the rewards I receive as a member of this evangelistic ministry,” and “I consider it the ultimate pleasure, to honor God by making music with my new friends.”
Getting his life back in order has inspired Jon to begin writing songs again. Just before the end of 2006 with help from Pastor Ric, Jon compiled 11 of his own songs and recorded his first solo Christian CD entitled, “It’s Only Me, Lord.” His songs and voice reflect the feelings he has experienced on his own “journey homeward.”
Along with his wife, Shari, Jon has been blessed to share his life with his daughter, Amanda, and his son, Aric.
