Graduation Year: 1998
Jon works for SGT, Inc. at the USGS EROS Data Center where he leads a small team investigating the capabilities of the rapidly growing numbers of remote sensing satellites. This requires close interaction with governments and private industry around the world. As the Earth Observation community evolves, the knowledge and insight gained through the Space Studies program has proven invaluable.
At EROS, Jon gets to work with other Space Studies Alumni including the recently-graduated Shankar Ramaseri. After graduating in the first Distance Studies class at UND, Jon has enjoyed visiting the program on campus periodically and providing guest lectures several times.
