Alaska heart: A second-generation, born-and-raised Alaskan, Jon has been a firefighter and disaster responder with the Alaska Division of Forestry for 16years. “It’s incredibly rewarding being able to help Alaskans in their greatest time of need.”
Fighting fires: Jon follows the flames, whether that’s in remote Alaska or in the Lower 48. On the fire line, he says teamwork is priority — everyone falls to task and knows what to do.
Outdoor office: “Alaska is the last holy grail for wildland fires. It’s rugged and challenging and tests your fortitude, but it sure makes for an awesome office space.”
Whether you were born and raised in Alaska or just have the Alaska born and raised spirit, we want to hear from you.
