Lab Ex Husband

Jon's wife Rachel did her PhD in the lab; Jon has also been a lab manager for the lab.  But now, Jon is happily NOT in the Breuner lab, he does not need to hang out in his wife's old lab anymore.  He is doing a very cool masters with Art Woods. 

However, we still call him a lot to get him to come over and fix things, and he is still happy to help us with field work.

Update: Jon got the hell out of Missoula, and is happily working in Hawaii, Master's completed, and he doesn't need to come help whenever we call him now.
