Drapery and fabric design is key to Jon. Jon grew up with his family close to needlework and custom fabrics for curtains, quilts, and bedding. Custom needlework and window treatments were a tradition passed from his grandparents to his parents, and now with him leading Gotcha Covered. Award winning fabric featured across the state, with thousands of window treatments in homes across Wisconsin gives Jon the design advantage. Jon is also qualified with electronic knowledge for smart home and connected services within your home. Jon maintains endorsements from every major manufacturer for blinds, shades, motorized operating systems, and privacy needs. Jon has successfully installed and completed custom jobs not in only in Wisconsin, but now 6 other states within the US. Jon left the design and hospitality industry after 9/11, was the Cadet of the Year for the Indiana National Guard for Indiana University in 2003, and was a Valedictorian for his flight training. Jon holds endorsements from every major window treatment manufacturer, and attends annual training for electrical and smart home systems.
