"No one can take your integrity away from you, only you can compromise it."- Joel Powell (dad)
Jonathan began his career in sales for small businesses before starting his accounting career and joining Kernutt Stokes. His experience helps him have great insight about people and human nature, and he understands what might keep a business owner up at night and where they find joy.
Jonathan especially appreciates how team-oriented Kernutt Stokes is and the opportunity to work with a “bunch of really smart people on a regular basis.” Whether he’s collaborating with others like a team of detectives to reconstruct the past and solve problems or strategizing on creative, forward-looking solutions, Jonathan enjoys the challenge and never stops learning. Friendly, quick to smile, with a knack for putting people at ease, it should come as no surprise why Jonathan leads the People Committee for the firm.
An Oregon native, Jonathan grew up in Eugene and currently lives in Albany with his wife Elizabeth and their three children. In his free time, he enjoys sports, golfing, hunting, fishing, riding motorcycles, camping, hiking, music, and movies.
