Jonathan grew up in West Palm Beach, FL as well as central New Jersey, and a few years relocated with his family to Houston, TX. After graduating from Rutgers University with a degree in mechanical engineering, he has spent the past decade working in the oil and gas industry, learning many different sides of the business - including planning capital projects, managing turnarounds and maintenance services out in the field at the refineries, procurement, category management and more.⠀
Although only officially joining the team in 2020, Jonathan has been supporting Houston Angels behind the scenes since its early days. When his wife, Melissa, took on the role as President back in 2018, neither of them had any prior experience with the foster care system. But as Houston Angels became an official chapter of the national organization and continued to grow, he quickly learned all about the huge need for this work and enjoyed being a part of the impact, including being a Love Box Leader as well as volunteering during events and projects. He officially joined the Board of Directors and played a more direct role in ensuring the organization remained in great financial and operational standing.
Jonathan now serves on the Advisory Board and helps the organization with their fundraising and networking efforts.
