    Perhaps Team KidSport’s first “renaissance man”, Jon is a man of many talents. His six years with the BC Lions as a lineman culminated in a Grey Cup win in 2011. After his retirement, due to a serious back injury, he spent time with the Lions in a public relations capacity. He has worked of late as a financial advisor with ZLC Financial, but his true passion is in the kitchen, where he is an accomplished chef and restauranteur. He is the owner and founder of Mean Poutine and Meat City Sandwiches in Vancouver and most recently was eliminated as a contestant on Master Chef Canada. Jon has a passion for helping kids realize their dreams and is a welcome addition to Team KidSport.
