A Lifetime of Inspiration


Jon has been coaching for nearly 20 years and, when he’s not coaching, continues to train and run competitively. As an athlete he won a national age-group championship in the mile, and at one time held the American M45 outdoor record for 3000m. Jon began his coaching career as the distance coach at Newton North High School (Newton, MA), where he coached two individual state track and cross country champions, and his teams won four straight Bay State Conference titles and a Massachusetts Div I State title.

Since 2007, Jon has been Head Cross Country and Track & Field coach at Concord Academy (Concord, MA), where his athletes have earned 40 League All-Star and 26 All-New England honors. Dozens of his athletes have gone on to successful college running careers, and one, Chaski founder Tyler Andrews, is a professional runner and member of a United States National team, and is coached by Jon to this day.


One of Jon’s proudest accomplishments is working with the Concord Academy Athletic Department to start the school’s first Track and Field program. From humble beginnings (a single runner the first season), the program is now one of the most popular sports at the school, with well over 50 students participating each year thanks to Jon’s enthusiasm, expertise, and reputation. Since the program started, CA Track and Field athletes have won numerous individual New England titles and one national title, and many athletes have gone on to compete at the NCAA level.
