Jon Rayner - Founder, President of the Board & CEO
Jon originally hails from Amherst Massachusetts and has called San Diego home for 16 years (family since the early '90s). He immediately started working in the recreational sports arena starting as an official, which was a new direction just coming off of the playing field. After years of refereeing and umpiring locally, Jon took a leap of faith and decided to start a new social sports community in San Diego, modeling the basis of San Diego Social Leagues off of the sports and social industry model and recently has adapted the model to include quality programs for underserved communities, corporate team building, discount club membership and other innovations. Jon works diligently to ensure that all aspects of San Diego Social Leagues operates to the highest standard and also cultivates relationships with the community and our partners.

I am also an artist, lover of Hip Hop and the mom of eccentric four year old twins. I believe in social justice and self determination. I also believe that community has the power to change life experience in a time where isolation has become the status quo. I am excited to be joining San Diego Social Leagues as Community Outreach Specialist in continuing their mission to build community through sports, social and charitable events.
Jessica Dorn - SDSL Ambassador
Hey there!! I am Jessica, your favorite SDSL ambassador. I grew up in a small Michigan town to a lower middle-class family and we didn’t have much money to put me into expensive dance and piano lessons; so we did the low cost version of sports. Growing up with 3 brothers and a dad whom coached baseball I was destined to play fast pitch softball. From backyard games like pig, horse and around the world (and drilling 3 point shots), to hitting balls off a tee at 6 and hitting 220 ft bombs as an adult always gave me a great feeling. I used to watch A League of Their Own I really wanted to play baseball (Girls can do anything guys can do! Lol.) but here I am and my real love has been softball. It reminds me of home and all the practice with my father and I hold these moments most dear to me.
My energy, personality, humor and love for the game has me excited to go on this journey with San Diego Social Leagues and bring people together and get THEM excited about softball too. With the many opportunities SDSL will bring to meeting new people I am sure I’ll be seeing you all around!!
