Jon VanDoran – “Push the Limits” Scholarship

Jon “Ironman” VanDoran

August 20, 1981 – September 16, 2015

Jon “Ironman” VanDoran was a lover of life who looked for opportunities to help others, challenge himself, and seize any opportunities. Despite his paraplegia from an unfortunate incident at birth, Jon achieved a high degree of satisfaction in life by discovering and creating ways to drive a motorcycle, do martial arts, swim and scuba, play in several bands, kayak, repel, and climb. His goal as he pursued a degree in mechanical engineering was to design adaptive sporting and outdoor adventure equipment for kids and people with disabilities who desire to enjoy life to its fullest. Jon was unable to see his goal to fruition when he passed away in the summer of 2015 with angiosarcoma. It is the mission of this scholarship fund to fulfill Jon’s goal of helping others reach their potential and push their limits.
