Jon Oleson

Former City Councilmember Jon Oleson passed away in January. His work made an impact in Bloomington. Before his years on the City Council (2013 – 2017), Jon served on the City’s planning commission. He also served on the HRA board during his time on the City Council and afterwards.

Public service was a theme in Jon’s life. He had a 32-year career with Duluth Public Schools, where he served as a teacher, curriculum advisor and an assistant principal. In 2000, he moved to the Twin Cities to continue his work as a school administrator until his retirement.
