Jon is on a mission: his journey in life is committed to continuous improvement and experiencing life to the fullest.
A father of three, successful entrepreneur, outdoor ultra-enthusiast, and lifelong learner, Jon’s latest business adventure is as founder and CEO of FOXO BioScience. At FOXO, Jon’s team of molecular biologists and bioinformatic scientists is commercializing epigenetic technology.
Inspired by the discovery of the epigenetic clock by Dr. Steve Horvath at UCLA, Jon identified that the lifespan predictive epigenetic technology could be applied to the global longevity industry. He exclusively licensed Dr. Horvath’s DNA Methylation Mortality Prediction (M-Panel) technology and launched FOXO, creating the world’s first epigenetic longevity company. FOXO is focused on providing molecular-level health and aging insights that allow individuals to make more informed choices that benefit their health. As part of this focus on overall health and longevity, Jon is also devoted to developing products that help people build a legacy that will stand the test of time.
Jon is a passionate entrepreneur who finds solace within movement through nature. The passion to move outdoors has led Jon to complete numerous ultra-distance events, including ironman triathlons, organized trail runs, open water swims, overland bike rides, and mountain treks. For Jon, ultra-distance movement represents an opportunity to experience both internal introspection through active meditation during extended periods outdoors and external fitness testing that comes from physically demanding endurance events. He is currently training for the Snowman Race to raise awareness for climate change.
Jon’s professional resume includes founding and serving as CEO and Chairman of a Fortune 500 NASDAQ-listed company where he led its growth and expansion from startup to assets of $1.6 billion and a $525 million market capitalization. Jon is an entrepreneur and financial professional focused on business development, investment banking, and corporate taxation. He holds a Doctor of Law (J.D.) from the University of Minnesota and a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from the University of Colorado.
