Jon’s always been in love with music – even at 12-years-old he wanted to become someone who could help people enjoy listening to it even more. Now he’s living the dream in the Q studio along with his amazing partner Laura Powell!
The pair love engaging with the community on-air and giving back off-air through events like the Redwood Express and involvement with charities and organizations like Susan G. Komen for the Cure, American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and many others. Says Laura, “The Light The Night Walk for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society makes me cry every year!” They also cite The Q102 Bosom Ball for Breast Cancer as one of their favorite station events and a great display of unity.
In and out of the studio, Jon’s more than happy to chat with listeners – he’s even taken prayer requests: “Just to be funny, I told a woman who called in that I was only taking prayer requests. I didn’t think she’d believe me, but she said, ‘Oh, okay…. Well, thank you for my mom, my dad and forgive me for this sin, but can I hear Rihanna’s S&M? Amen.’”
When she’s not in the studio, you’ll find Laura spending time at her local Kroger, T.J. Maxx and Kohl’s, and of course enjoying her beautiful family.
