Jon attended Jamesville-Dewitt High School, and matriculated in 1983, after which he enrolled at the University of Vermont where he studied engineering.

While at University, Jon met Trey Anastasio and Mike Gordon with whom he started the band Phish. He also left University of Vermont and alongside Trey Anastasio continued his education at Goddard College.

Phish reunited in 2002 and released two more albums before again going on hiatus in 2004, which lasted until 2009. Since then they are regularly on tour and in the studio, and most recently have released their 13th studio album “Big Boat”.
