Jon moved to San Diego in 2005 following his grandparents who began to call San Diego home 15 years prior. Jon immediately began mentoring at-risk youth and working in the recreational sports arena. He became a sports official as a way to give back and support the adult and youth sports communities.
After years of refereeing and umpiring locally, Jon took a leap of faith and decided to start a sports community in San Diego modeling after the Sports and Social Industry with an emphasis on meaningful social work. Jon's vision was to utilize the high engagement of organized sports to create a vehicle; the main driver of which is to establish a surplus of social capital.
Beyond promoting health and wellness within the general public, SDSL programming aims to support and engage with vulnerable populations; to create lower financial barriers to participation with a high focus on helping develop equitable facilities throughout the county.
Jon works diligently to ensure that all aspects of San Diego Social Leagues operate to the highest standard. He also cultivates and maintains relationships with community partners building synergistic ecosystems for collaboration, with the aim of realizing a shared vision.
