The PestPro Team
President and Owner
Jon began his career in the pest management industry in the late 1980s. He started one of the first urban wildlife management companies, Mac & Quack’s Urban Wildlife Control, in Boston, MA. It was at this time that he realized that there was a real need for nuisance wildlife control in both residential homes and commercial establishments in urban settings.
In 1990, Jon honed his wildlife management skills while working at Orkin Pest Control in Boston as a Service Manager. At Orkin, he was responsible for a multi-million dollar pest control service department that included human resources, customer service, and managing ten pest control technicians and their routes.
After the birth of Jon and Linda’s first daughter in 1994, they relocated to Vermont. A year later, they established PestPro. When he’s not taking care of his clients’ pest management needs, Jon can be found fishing, hunting, playing golf and pickleball, barbequing and spending time with his family in South Hero.
Vice President / Co-Owner
PestPro started in 1995 after our first daughter was born. As former professional chefs working in Boston and Florida, Jon and I decided to start a business in “family friendly” Vermont.
PestPro has been in business since 1995. I find myself working every aspect of PestPro from office duties to installing bird netting to eradicating bed bugs. We offer the most innovative and safest techniques and professional solutions that pest control can offer. We care about our customers and it shows with our high retention rate.
Jon and I live in South Hero, VT with our three daughters.
