Pat Katz
We worked together  •  Member, Copperhead Charities, Inc and Chief Optimist & President, Screamin' Hot.
In all the years I worked with Jon, I found him to be one of the greatest resources at Thomas & King. His ability to manage enormous workl ... oad, while maintaining a professional and courteous approach to everyone that continually walked through his door was, in my opinion, amazing. He is not only resourceful and intelligent, he blends those with an equal amount of consideration for others, while balancing the absolute requirement to achieve the outcome set forth in a manner that leaves everyone feeling like a contributor to the project with their voices heard, and there is really none better characteristic in managing teams than ensuring everyone has a part in it. Jon does that.
Dr. Martin Fekete, DHSc., MBA., CSP., SPHR
We worked together  •  President & CEO, Divergent Health, LLC. and Vice President, Risk Management, National PEO. Arizona State grad.
Jon presents a good idea that being in the human resource management field is a tool that would be very useful to job seekers given to curre ... nt hiring environment. His IT knowledge and abilities lend credibility to this venture and idea. He also poses the think outside the box which makes for great entrepreneurs and he realizes that he cannot poses all the knowledge necessary to startup a venture and thus has reached out in his network to have the mentors necessary to assist him in those areas that he is unfamiliar with.
