Both Jon and Charlene were born and raised here in Elk Grove with both graduating from Elk Grove High School.  Charlene became a dental hygienist through Sacramento City College and Jon graduated with a degree in business administration from the University of the Pacific in Stockton.  Charlene worked for many years in the dental profession and was the ‘first’ dental hygienist to work in Elk Grove.  After military service, Jon returned to Elk Grove and retired after 42 years as an insurance broker.  Through the years both spent many years being involved in various service and social activities such as the Rotary Club of Elk Grove, the Elk Grove Chamber of Commerce, the Senior Center of Elk Grove and Creekside Christian Church of Elk Grove.  As of 2021, they have four grown children, seventeen grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
