Johnathan and his wife, Holly, moved to Murfreesboro in 2002 from Lexington, Kentucky after meeting at the University of Kentucky. Though bourbon, basketball, and bluegrass are still in his blood, his family and he love living in Middle Tennessee. As the director of Transformation Office for Newell Brands, Jon's work has enabled him to travel all over the world. He has been based out of cities such as Chicago, New York City and Atlanta, but Johnathan and Holly have been intentional about keeping Murfreesboro their home. In his free time, he loves coaching soccer, playing guitar and watching movies with his family. Johnathan’s family has been affected by breast cancer, and he watched his mother-in-law face the challenges of reconstruction first-hand. His hope is to bring awareness to the issue and help make it a little easier for some of those affected to deal with the situation.
