Batter, batter, batter, swing batter..... For anyone that doesn't know Jonathan Vetter, he is a true baseball fan. Besides football, baseball is his favorite and he has played it for half of his life. I can't remember all of the baseball players that went to his High School or that lived in his area, but one of them was Greg Jefferies. There were a few more.
Anyhow, I actually had the pleasure of meeting Jon this past Sunday at PJ Whelihan's in Maple Shade, New Jersey. We met for a few beers and talked about all kinds of things for about 2 hours. He is in town for 2 weeks because his wife grew up in this area and they were in town for a wedding and his wife for a baby shower. Jon did have the pleasure of helping set up for the baby shower. He seemed so thrilled..... lol

Interesting fact : Jon met his wife when she was visiting out West. They hit it off and made plans to get together again. They got engaged in less than a year and have been married for 3 years. They have a 1 1/2 year old daughter named Ramie. Another interesting story, because it is taken from his wife's name Jaimie. (there is more to it, but I can't remember all of it)
Jonathan had been in real estate for about 5 years before getting into the lending business. He has been on the lending side of things for the last 3 years and just loves what he does. Gee, another one that loves what he does. Awesome....
We went on to talk about sports (football & baseball), Active Rain, golf, and just life in general. And I have to say, Jon was very easy to talk to, which I can see why he is very successful in what he does. I might even try to meet him and his wife in Philly before he leaves. That would be a fun send off.
Picture taken with my Treo 750. And Jon makes the 3rd person that I have met from Active Rain.
