If you’ve ever seen a lacrosse game you know it’s fast. Shifts from side to side happen quickly and there is some serious contact in this sport. It’s not unlike the life of Jon Urbana.
This isn’t a man that sits around with a lot of time to spare. Jon has a deep love and appreciation for the arts. As a photographer his work shows a recognition of what is beautiful. From a young Twitter user working tediously on a sand sculpture beyond words to a sunset, his photographs allow you to feel as if you were there when it was taken. On the music front Jon has a following on Tumblr of his electronic fused remix music (https://soundcloud.com/jonurbana). It’s funky, fun, and another side to this multi dimensional man.
Jon Urbana played for the Villanova Wildcats and was awarded Colonial Athletic Association’s Defensive Player of the Year in 2004. He played fast and hard. Nowadays Jon Urbana is the founder of Next Level Lacrosse Camp in Colorado. His mission is to teach kids using some of the best lacrosse players on the scene. The camps are set up to work with each child and where they want to go in the sport. Rated as the top camp in Colorado, Next Level is Jon Urbana’s love of lacrosse coming back two fold.
Jon Urbana’s charity work is yet another passion. Jon believes that leaving this earth better than how we came to it is an important message to send. He supports Earth Force, a movement that gets people to work on their own local environments. As he says on Facebook, Jon Urbana believes in putting an emphasis on the natural beauty of our earth.
So what do you do when you’ve played professional sports, dabbled in the arts, and done charity work – well you fly! Urbana has met or exceeded all the standards established by the FAA. He has even been recognized by the FAA and added to the database for the FAA’s Airmen Certification Database. When you look at all that Jon Urbana has accomplished it’s hard to imagine where he goes from here.
