Jon Welch was born in Houston, grew up in Sugar Land and attended Fort Bend ISD schools. He earned a Bachelor's degree in Communications in college. He works in marketing. He has lived in Lamar CISD since 2008. He is the proud father of two teenagers.

Jon credits his parents & several of his teachers with his passion for learning, his intellectual curiosity, and his interest in the societal & cultural issues facing the nation today. On a more personal note, he enjoys books about history and biographies of memorable individuals. He also follows the Houston Astros & the NFL.

"I've been around educators all of my life. This has taught me that the success of our schools is directly tied to the teachers that we recruit and retain. They are the ones who inspire and help students apply academic knowledge to every day life.

Also, I'm concerned about the financial burden shouldered by taxpayers. There should always be a healthy balance regarding the money LCISD collects via property taxes with the wants/needs of the schools."
