A man of many talents, Jon Urbana holds the prestigious distinction of being recognized with the FAA’s Airmen Certification Database for exceeding education, licensing, and medical standards. This puts Urbana in the ranks of the pilots who are recommended by transportation safety experts to fly with, to ensure the skills that reduce error and danger. FAA standards are among the highest in the world.
Jon uses a more recently discovered avenue for his creativity in crafting original music, with only the humblest of gear, to garner support for his many charitable undertakings. MTV Artists is one of Urbana’s many social media presences where he offers his own mixes for free, embedded at a site also recognizing his support for Earth First.
Another of Jon’s passions, Earth First works to promote awareness, and mobilize youth, to become proactive in understanding and protecting the natural resources and environment, especially the natural beauty of the planet. Urbana’s many interests intersect here as well, as he also works closely with youth to share his skills in lacrosse.
Next Level Lacrosse Camp was founded by Urbana, who has not only played Villanova lacrosse, but earned honorable mention All-America honors in 2004. He also was selected as the Colonial Athletic Association’s Defensive Player of the Year. Jon Urbana was a lead player for the Villanova Wildcats while they were at the top of their conference. And he began his accumulation of other special honors in the sport in High School.
He chose to share his talents by coaching young people in the sport and offering them an opportunity to train with some of the top pro’s in the game. More on his lacrosse biography and a chance to register can be found at the camp’s website .
Could there be more? Lots!–Too much to mention here, even.
