My Story:  EVEREST 2012 & 2015
2012: On May 19th and 20th, I went for my first summit attempt of Everest. The weather and the winds were not forecasted to increase until the afternoon of the 20th.  I thought I would have plenty of time to summit and get down before the winds and bad weather hit.  Unfortunately the weather turned violent in the early morning hours of the 20th, much too early.  I turned around less than 1000 feet (300m) from the summit.  What I witnessed on my ascent and descent that night was one of the deadliest nights in the History of Mount Everest. Up to 7 people died, and others went missing. I did what I could for people around me, and members of my team bonded together to make it to safety on Everest.  I made sure I was ok up there that night, and got down safely, but Still there were many that passed away that night that we couldn't help and to their families I send my most respectful condolences.
Everyone wants to know more about what happened on that fateful night, but more importantly, what happened in the days after.  In 2012, I overcame unbelievable adversity and essentially climbed Mount Everest twice, making the summit in a second attempt with My great climbing friends including Jangbu Sherpa, and Canada's Sandra Leduc and her Sherpa Chawong.  We were all fortunate to be strong enough to return less than a week later to make it all the way to the top of the world.  This is my story, and I plan on sharing it with many people through presentations and speaker appearances and maybe even a book in the coming year.  I am available for fundraiser events and motivational speaking, so please click on "BOOK JON for Your Next Event" if interested, a pair of sample videos are below.

2015:
On April 25th, 2015, Jon was in Mount Everest Basecamp when a 7.8 Magnitude Earthquake struck Nepal around Noon that day.  An impressively large Avalanche of Seracs and Compressed Air fell from the slopes of nearby Pumori Peak and collided with the Basecamp, destroying everything in its path and killing 19 people, while injuring nearly 100.  10,000 people lost their lives in Nepal following the devastating quake. Jon was fortunate to make it out of the blast alive and able to help with recovery efforts.

N.O.D. = "NO OFF DAYS"
Because to be successful in life, you can't take days off.
 "YOU HAVE TO ACCEPT AND EMBRACE BEING UNCOMFORTABLE ON SOME LEVEL IN ORDER TO PUSH FORWARD AND ACHIEVE"    --Dr. Jon
  You have to work hard everyday to achieve your goals and make things happen. This is a concept originally developed in 1997 by some close friends of mine and I as we worked out together to win championships in football and basketball.  Realistically, a day off for rest is good, but to achieve things you want in life, you have to go after them and take advantage of every opportunity that comes at you. If you aren't working hard at the time, somebody somewhere else is, and when you meet them they will win. It has been many years since in the making since I've incorporated this approach into my life everyday. I also applied this concept to the highest mountains on the planet:  Climbing Mount Everest, and additional 8000m peaks!
