After devoting 30 years to a successful career in environmental engineering, Jon served as Chief Operating Officer for Healing Waters International in Golden, CO from 2010 – 2013. Through a chance encounter in 2012, he became aware of the massive problem of sex trafficking in India. The following year, he participated in an undercover sting operation to rescue a 12-year-old girl who was being sold into slavery. Having taken his own daughter to India in 2005, he was deeply impacted by her story and the lack of rehabilitative care available in India. Upon returning to the United States, he founded New Horizons in October 2013.

He currently lives in Sedalia, CO with his wife Rena and a host of rescue animals.
