Jon Hansen

Jon Hansen is a Chicagoland native and he is not only one of The Jam's co-hosts but our resident weather expert! He's always looking to chat about the weather, what’s going on with everyday Chicagoans and the things that make our city the best! Jon likes to have fun and get everyone’s day off to a great start.
