Riley Galvan, BHS Journalism

Jason Vonbargen graduated from Baldwin High School in 2013, and is now focusing on his career and family. He is currently working as a foreperson at Asplundh Tree Expert Company. Jason has spent 5 years working for Asplundh, but has recently began taking classes at Johnson County Community College. 

“I am trying to work as hard as I can at my current job while also taking classes,” Vonbargen said. “I would like to become a police officer or have some role in law enforcement.”

In addition to his career and education, Vonbargen has had other major changes in his life. OnMay 26, 2018, he married Cameryn Galvan, whom he met during his sophomore year of high school.

“We have been married for about a year and a half, but we’ve been together for 9 years,” Vonbargen said.

He has recently experienced another significant transition in life. On Sep. 23, Jason’s son, Nolan was born. Although they now have a healthy baby, initially there were complications. His temperature kept dropping and his heart rate was low, which led him to needing to be in the NICU. 

“We were both so happy to be able to take our baby home healthy,” Galvan said. “I am taking time off from school to be with him, and I love every moment I spend with him.” 

“I feel like I am not as far ahead as I would like to be but I’m not disappointed with where I’m at,” Vonbargen said. “I want to keep moving up in my career but my main goal in my life right now is to be the best dad that I can be.”
