About Me

Hello, my name is Jonathan Payne, the son of Steven and Lori Payne. I am currently a senior attending Mount Vernon Township High School. For my personal business, I have turned my love of basketball into a money making enterprise. I became licensed in the Fall of 2016 by the IHSA to officiate basketball games. This winter I have worked 19 dates. I jumped at the chance to be in CEO, and I am so glad I took that opportunity. I have learned many vital skills I can use in the future. I have learned how to make decisions as a team rather than just by myself. I also learned how to determine the strengths of those around me, just to name a few. I am honored to be in this program and to be a part of the inaugural class of the Jefferson County CEO!

About My Business

Hi, my name is Jonathan Payne. I am an IHSA Licensed Independent Contractor. I referee basketball, and I am looking to add other sports in the future. I schedule my own games in this area. At this time, I am primarily officiating grade school contests, and I look to move up to high school in a few years.
