Jon is on a journey to lose 300 pounds and so far he has lost 230 lbs in 13 months. He speaks about his weight loss journey and how social media saved his life.

Jon Evans is native to Greenville, South Carolina. He has lived all over the country but always ends up back home in Greenville. His day job is sales and in the evenings you can find him running the music for the Greenville Swamp Rabbits during their home games. But his real passion is sharing his story and motivating people to make positive changes in their lives.
