At the age of 16, Jon enrolled in the Eastern Center for Arts and Technology located in Montgomery County. His areas of study were mainly carpentry. During the summer break, he was introduced into the masonry field as a mason’s laborer. After he graduated high school, he was hired as a concrete mason.
Due to an injury while bicycling, he took year off to rehabilitate. He found a job at a local gym and learned the discipline of bodybuilding and power-lifting.
After his recovery, he was offered a position as a mason’s apprentice through the local bricklayer’s and craft workers association. During his apprenticeship and schooling, Jon took on a few mentors which he is particularly grateful for allowing him to be part of the art of masonry, specifically in the restoration division. By being exposed to great mentors and unique masonry applications, he developed a deep passion and dedication for the science and the art of masonry building, restoration, and detailed design.
Jon’s main commitment is to offer quality services based on customer’s specific needs while maintaining and enhancing standard workmanship practices. Another strong commitment is to provide, maintain, and restore sustainable wood burning fireplaces, masonry heaters, and chimney services.
