Featured Story: Jonathan & Jae’Quan

Jae’Quan is the only boy in his family and his father isn’t able to be around consistently. At 10 years old, his family brought him to BBBSCR, and he was soon matched with Jonathan and Andrea. He spends time with his mentors and their family and also enjoys one on one time with Jonathan.

BBBSCR staff gives advice to Jonathan on how to help Jae’Quan navigate peer pressure and the various challenges he faces. Jonathan’s goal is to provide fun positive experiences while being a consistent role model in his Little Brother’s life.

Jonathan is terrified of heights. But when he went Over the Edge in 2017, he proved to Jae’Quan that their friendship is bigger than his fear.

Jonathan will be rappelling on October 19th along with other coworkers from Stonebridge Financial Group. We invite you to go Over the Edge with Jonathan or come cheer him on with Jae’Quan.

Watch their 2017 video as Jonathan prepared for last year’s Over the Edge event:
