Jon was born March 9, 1959, in Watervliet, Michigan to Bud and Frieda (Paul) Bisnett. He grew up in Watervliet where he graduated high school in 1977. Jon was an entrepreneur at heart, he worked as a sales man for most of his life most recently for Miller Thermometer Company. He was a long time reporter for the Tri-City Record. Music was a constant in his life from playing an instrument, to encouraging his boys talents, to being the sound guy for bands most recently The Unknowns. He was forever evolving through his love of learning and gathering knowledge. Jon will be remembered for being passionate for everything his boys showed an interest, always eager to supply them with the tools to be successful. Above everything Jon was so happy to be a grandpa.
