Charlie and his wife Mary Jane are parents of four children between the ages of 16 and 22. He enjoys his family, coffee, his five dogs, and a cat.
A fact you should know: He holds to the doctrine of the sovereignty of God yet he sees no evidence his cat has bought in.
Jonathan has a 1982 BS BA degree from Bryant University in Rhode Island. Jon and his wife grew up and met in Massachusetts and moved to Arizona in the early 1980s. Jonathan worked for 32 years at the same company in various positions of systems tester, systems analyst, programmer and the last 10 years as a IT Engineer.
