Jon Walker

Jon Walker (Oak Terrace) grew up in Stockport near Manchester in England. He graduated from Leeds University with a degree in Molecular Biophysics and has worked in the software business ever since. He came to the USA in 1992 for three months and is still here twenty years later. He’s lived in Highland Park for 15 years and has two daughters at Oak Terrace, Gracie in 5th grade and Amy in 3rd. Jon played chess in high school and college for fun and continues to be a student of the game. He’s happy to have Chessmaster and Promethean boards to make his lessons more interactive and fun for the kids. Jon enjoys coaching and playing soccer which is why he is often limping or hobbling around Oak Terrace.
