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 (Although I was still higher than Neighboring Lhotse, the 4th highest mtn in the world by 100m when I did finally turn around).  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, as well as Ritchy and Steve.  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. 

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.
