Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Jon and Kerri

May 5, 2018

  Jon Krueger (From the eyes of Kerri):   About: Jon grew up in the Chicago suburbs riding bikes and conducting science experiments in his backyard. He rocked the AcaDeca team in high school and landed a spot at Rice University in Houston. After visiting California as a kid, Jon knew he wanted to end up on the best coast. After grad school at University of Illinois and a short stint in San Diego, Jon made the move to Los Angeles and has worked as an engineer doing “satellite stuff” ever since.  Likes: music (playing and listening), movies, surfing/beaching, doing dishes, watching funny videos

Jon's Story

He's a midwest boy.

  Kerri Yuen (From Jon's Perspective)   About:  Kerri grew up in Roseville, CA with dreams of one day being like Mia Hamm and Kerri Walsh.  Her love for soccer and volleyball stayed with her through high school.  While she eventually traded in her cleats and kneepads for a teaching degree in Southern California, her love for the sports still take up much space in the DVR.  She is the youngest in her family with two siblings, who once made her sleep in a drawer.  She doesn't let this fact go unacknowledged.  Kerri knows all the words to all songs on country radio and Taylor Swift albums, and can line dance circles (er, lines?) around you.  Likes:  Concerts, crafts, and craft beer.  Beach volleyball, HIMYM, and tacos
