Jon Stewart’s love of the water began at the ripe age of two when his dad threw him in the deep end and told him to swim. That lesson infused Jon with liquid passion and loads of confidence, attitudes that serve our Director of In-House Operations well. Jon does it all – sales, repairs, demos, and design – and he does it with style. An avid fisherman, paddler, and decorated Eagle Scout, Jon is our go-to-guy for everything Hurricane.
