As long as I have known Jon, he has always been an extremely discipline and motivated worker and is one of the smartest guys I know.

They're my school
Jonathan is a man with a plan. Four years ago, while at school, he mentioned he would be starting companies soon. As an investment banker I ... didnt think he would ever do it - but he has planned his career in a way that has allowed him to. He is beyond thoughtful and intelligent - he has an ability to get things done and being persistent until he accomplishes his goals. I have seem his execute masterfully and I truly believe he will achieve what he sets his mind to.

I see great entrepreneurs are visionaries who are doers. Jonathan is both. Without any previous knowledge of social media, he was able to pu ... sh through and get over 2,000 likes on Kimberfire's FB page. He is already post-revenue and has proven the business model. He just needs the Kimberfire process to the web so he can scale his business.

We worked together  •  Advisor, Project Lever and Consultant, Reserbus. University of Iowa grad.
Whichever activity Jonathan engages in, he gives it all. He is optimistic, bright, tenacious, hard-working, and determined to succeed by goi ... ng above and beyond. In the four years that I know Jonathan, and the two that we worked side by side, I have never seen him discouraged. Thoughtfulness, analytical mind, and skill in engaging and managing appropriate resources allow him to solve any problem in a most efficient and effective manner. On top of that Jonathan is an excellent communicator with broad experience working on diverse teams. He is the guy who makes things happen, a courageous doer capable to follow his curiosity and passion. Coupled with a technical co-founder working on the right idea, he is bound to succeed.

Jonathan has a killer combination of high intelligence and critical experience. As a domain expert, he brings a smart, savvy approach to his ... venture, consistently setting high goals and exceeding each one of them. He's the sort of guy that you want on your team: hard-working, trustworthy, and knows how to get the job done!
