A Sacramento area native, Jonathan has lived in Roseville for nearly 15 years with his wife and kids. His kids’ ages range from two months to 18 years old and all have attended, or will attend, Roseville City schools.
Jonathan graduated from CSU Sacramento with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Accountancy. After college, he worked as a financial auditor for a top international accounting firm where he became a licensed certified public accountant. He has 20+ years working in a professional business environment, and today, he works as a finance manager for a large health care system.
California’s harsh response to Covid-19 quickly frustrated Jonathan, in particular school shut-downs. He immediately began advocating locally for his kids’ schools to return to in-person education. His efforts quickly grew into a statewide movement when he founded Reopen California Schools in June 2020.
Through his advocacy, his kids’ own school districts were some of the first public schools to reopen in our state. Today, he continues to be on the front lines for the rest of California’s nearly six million K-12 students. As a school board member, Jonathan will continue to lead and partner with the community at every opportunity.
