About Jon Sorensen

Jon has been a Caps fan since day one, attending his first game at the Capital Centre in 1974.

Jon earned a Bachelor's of Science in Engineering at Old Dominion University, and is a Systems Engineer during intermissions, which has been instrumental in supporting his Capitals habit.
