Jon graduated from Northwestern University Prosthetic-Orthotics Center in June of 1984. He continued to work at Memorial Hermann part time while he was a full-time employee of Muilenburg Prosthetics which allowed him to pay off his college loans, meet his wife and make many contacts and friends in Houston's medical community.

Jon's unique training and experience have led him to be a specialist in lower limb prosthetic devices and multiple limb amputees. Working with TIRR and The Shriner's Hospital allowed him to fit more amputees than any other prosthetist in the area and out of town.
