He never stops working. He is unbelievable. You can’t imagine how many hours he puts in, all the work he does.

Bob Williams, Williams True Value Hardware, Poultney VT

The Stonebridge Inn, the wonderful building, is because of him and grants. That is why we have that beautiful building in town... He’s effected a lot of change in the community and we are much better off for having him here. Town managers usually don’t last this long in any community. That in and of itself is a testament to him.

Patricia McCoy, Poultney Town Clerk

That’s mostly Jonas going out and getting community and youth involvement. I just don’t think we would have the [recreation] program we have today if it wasn’t for him.
