Jon received his B.A. from Santa Clara University in Economics. In 2011 he founded an Investment Advisory firm (Riley Friedman Asset Management) that primarily serves individual investors. As an active member of the community he volunteers for several organizations. In addition to the Foundation, he serves on the Member Advisory Group of Star One Credit Union, is an officer of ICF Branch 47, and is on the School Advisory Council of Saint Joseph Mountain View. Jon decided to join the Dreams33 board because he was moved by an event he attended a few years ago, held by Pivotal. Hearing the stories of the difficult path many foster children face was truly eye opening for him and after the event he realized he wanted to be part of helping youth in similar positions change their lives. Jon’s goal for Dreams33 is to helping to provide the education and resources foster youth need to reach their full potential.
