Jon Urbana is a very busy person who is always involved in business and other pursuits. Most recently, Mr. Urbana has become involved with a Crowdrise campaign. Specifically, he is promoting a charity drive to support the Animal Rescue & Adoption Society (ARAS). The goal of the ARAS is to care for cats until they can be placed in a new home. The shelter provides a “no kill” policy allowing the felines to live in a sanctuary until adopted. The costs of doing so are significant and on Facebook, Urbana said that the Crowdrise campaign hopes to offer the necessary financial support to feed and shelter the cats.
Before becoming an activist for pets, Jon Urbana made a name for himself in the lacrosse world. In a previous career, Urbana was a professional lacrosse player. Although he is retired from professional competition, Urbana has not left the lacrosse world behind. He currently runs the Next Level Lacrosse Camp, which is a training ground for the top college and professional lacrosse players of the future.
While in college at Villanova University, Urbana was a NCAA Division 1 All-American in lacrosse. Not only did his tenure at the university help him lay the foundation for his sports career, it also helped set up his professional endeavors. Urbana holds a Bachelor of the Arts in Economics and this has served him well in Jon’s various entrepreneurial endeavors.
In his other business ventures, Jon Urbana serves as the Head of Business Development for Ellipse USA, a company that deals with laser technologies. Mr. Urbana is effectively able to handle his duties with Ellipse while also serving as a coach at his lacrosse camp and a part-time photographer who also has an impressive music catalog.
Hopefully, the high profile Jon Urbana brings to the Crowdrise campaign will help it become a huge success.
