"Jon is a true talent. I first worked with him as an IT Specialist while I held the position of Corporate Event Coordinator. It didn’t matter what crazy idea for an event or meeting I asked him for he made it happen. Later, I was fortunate enough to have Jon join the marketing department where we worked side by side. He is an asset from web site development to social media. Oh, he also has a great sense of humor. In the 5 years I worked with Jon he made me laugh during the days when we needed it most. If you have the opportunity to hire Jon don’t hesitate." - Helene
"I worked with Jon during my time at Nortrax where he helped me develop marketing material for recruiting efforts. He is helpful and knowledgeable on many areas of marketing but his knowledge of social media strategies and how to use them to benefit the business was by far the most I learned from him during my time at Nortrax. Jon is a team player and he would fit in well anywhere regardless of the work environment. He can work independently or in a group dynamic - you would not go wrong having him on your team." - Claudia
