Jonathan Ebel

Grassroots Trainer

Jon inspires enthusiastic engagement. He has lived most of his life in Wisconsin, receiving his B.A. from Concordia University Wisconsin and his M.B.A. from Marquette University.  His parents were both educators and his grandparents were farmers.  They collectively taught him the value of hard work (there is no such thing as a menial job), the importance of a good education, and the blessing of family and community.  From an early age, he took an interest in government and politics and has a deep appreciation for this beautiful experiment that is the United States of America.

Jon began his career working in marketing and client relationships with a Fortune 500 firm. To spend more time at home, he later transitioned and spent 25+ years owning and operating a small staffing firm.  This further deepened his understanding of the importance of work in achieving the American dream.  To help make this a reality for more people, Jon spent many hours volunteering for AFP at the grassroots level.

When not hard at work, Jon enjoys spending time with his wife and five children, gardening, running, biking, and reading.  For the past eight years, he has coached a multitude of students in Extemporaneous speaking for a national speech and debate league including many who qualified for the national championships.
