Having emerged victorious in his high-profile Senate run-off race, this 33 year-old Georgia native is the youngest person elected to the Senate since President Joe Biden back in 1973.

Pre-Congress?

After undergrad at Georgetown University and receiving his Masters at the London School of Economics, Jon ran a media production company that produced documentaries investigating corruption and war crimes for international news organizations. He returned stateside and worked as a national security aide for Georgia Congressman Hank Johnson before running unsuccessfully in a special election for Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District seat. Though he lost that race, it gained him national attention, aiding in his eventual run for Senate.
