Jaron owns and manages J.P’s 207, a restaurant, bar, catering business and live music venue. He also serves as Mayor of the City of Washington and is a Past President of the Chamber board. He enjoys his work with the city council where all elected positions are non-partisan. He says that’s refreshing because council members are not caught up in politics and can focus on problems and coming up with solutions to them. He grew up on a farm, worked at a hardware store, as a lifeguard, restaurant server and as a manager at a cell phone store. The top three highlights in his life so far were getting married to his husband Andrew, opening his own restaurant and becoming an uncle.
