Jon Glidewell

Professional Mentor

Jon was born and raised in Klamath Falls. During his sophomore year of high school his mother remarried, giving him the opportunity to live in southern California. While he had a great experience there, he chose to move back to Klamath Falls in 2002. Jon earned a bachelor’s degree from Oregon Tech and planned to become a teacher until he came across Friends of the Children and fell in love with the program and values. Jon has served in multiple roles at the chapter, most recently as a Friend/Mentor. The impact he is able to make in the lives of his youth is what keeps him motivated and committed to being there for his youth no matter what.
