Jon Paul was born September 3, 1978 in Bonham, TX. He graduated from Bonham High School in the class of 1997. In high school, he was involved in NT Best Robotics which began his love of electronics and all things technical. Following high school, Jon Paul worked for Schlumberger (The Pump) for a few months before entering ITT Technical Institute. He worked part time and attended ITT full time and graduated in December 1999. Jon Paul was hired and began working for AT&T (SWBT) on January 3, 2000. Jon Paul loved his job and enjoyed talking AT&T dialog with everyone (whether they were interested or not). Jon was skilled in many facets of AT&T and was highly skilled at his job as a Systems Technician.
Jon Paul was interested and active in many hobbies and activities. He enjoyed shooting rifles and pistols, riding four wheelers (mudding), camping, computers, video games, electronics of all kinds, archery, cars, and music of all varieties (Jon Paul has over 11,000 songs on his iTunes).
