Jon’s historic victory in skeleton at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games made him a champion, but it was his famous beer-swilling walk through Whistler Village, and genuine awe-inspiring joy on the podium receiving his gold medal, that made him a household name across Canada.

Hailing from Russell, Manitoba on the Saskatchewan border, Jon knows a thing or two about small town Canada. He’s also visited every major Canadian city, and countless international destinations both as a traveller and an athlete. Jon is also a trained auctioneer, public speaker and devoted to several charitable causes.

He lives in Victoria with his wife Darla and chocolate Labrador retriever, Stark.
