Jalon is running for the Kansas House because he believes Kansans deserve better, authentic representation. Kansas needs representatives that will fight for small business and social liberties. Jalon will represent his district with integrity and transparency. He will work for the people. Jalon will always be up to date on the issues facing his community in a way that allows for comprehensive solutions. Jalon believes our current Kansas Legislature does not reflect the young, diverse, and impacted identities of his community.
Born in Little Rock, AR, Jalon’s drive to help people was evident from an early age. At only 16, Jalon along with his three siblings and cousins started their first nonprofit, providing safer entertainment options for inner city youth and holiday meals to families in need.
Following graduation from high school, Jalon attended Arkansas Baptist College where he played baseball for two years.
After college, Jalon pursued a career at Kids Across America where he worked as a counselor, supervising and guiding kids through the camp's daily schedule. He was soon promoted to the camp leadership team as the Programs Director. Jalon has worked for his local school district as a para-educator and football coach.
