Hi! My name is Jon Krempel. I have been consumed by music since the age of 7 when I sat down and played piano for the first time. Piano is still a huge part of my life. I play and lead worship at my church, play for many wedding ceremonies each summer, and also tour with a contemporary band around the Midwest. I have had extensive training and experience with various audio and recording technologies. I use these experiences to direct my customers towards the best possible solutions to fit their needs. Sweetwater gives me a great opportunity to continue my career in music. I continue to learn and gain experience that ultimately benefits the great customers that I work with everyday.
As your personal contact here at Sweetwater, please let me know anytime I can offer help or advice.

I was born and have stayed right here in Fort Wayne, IN. I love this city and all it has to offer.
Being part of the music scene, Sweetwater's name was always coming up as the place to go, not just for the best price, but for the great support and customer service they provide. It was a no-brainer that I wanted to join such an awesome team.
I play piano, trumpet, guitar, clarinet
Too much live sound equipment to list. B52 Matrix 2000 and 1000, Digi 002, BX5, Kawai MP4, Roland Fantom 76fa, Roland XP-50, Fender Telecaster Standard, ADA 8000, Shure KSM27.
I have a beautiful fiancee, Donielle. She has a pug named Ted and I have a yellow lab named Sebastian.
I love aquariums. Currently I have a 30 gallon reef tank. I also love flying remote control planes. I also played soccer at The University of Saint Francis, where I was a two-time captain.
It's quite simple, Live and Learn.
Huge sports fan. It is relaxing for me to take the shoes off and enjoy a game, except baseball and soccer. They put me to sleep. Even with me playing soccer, it is hard for me to watch it.
Besides my knowledge and experience in audio, it is how I was raised. I learned how to treat people and I learned a good work ethic. I try to use all of this to the benefit of my customers.
I enjoy being surrounded by a team that has so much experience and knowledge. It makes coming to work fun and exciting each day. I also learn something new every day I'm here.
Jon Krempel was great. I really appreciate the personal service, speedy delivery and fair price. Sweetwater has the best inventory, service, prices, and after sale support in the industry. Website is cool too. Love the guitar gallery!

I would sincerely like to thank Jon for all of your help with choosing out my equipment. I am now using the Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 and all I can say is wow.. Such an amazing product, I love it! This has been the most awesome experience I've ever had shopping online and I would love to consider using Sweetwater for all my music/audio needs! As a matter of a fact as soon as it's possible I will be purchasing my monitors within the next month! So once again, thanks Jon I look forward to doing business again very soon!!

As always, Jon was great. Especially so in this case because this was a preorder that took a REALLY long time to arrive. Jon arranged to place the order on my credit card rather than PayPal so it wouldn't get canceled every so often. Jon also kept me up to date on the status of the order. I have been using Sweetwater for years because of the personalized service I receive from Jon. It's like ordering from a friend rather than just a company. I appreciate it.

I originally discovered your company via Google. I also had a very nice experience ordering from your company for the first time with the help of my sales engineer, Jon Krempel. He was very helpful when I was ordering my amp and cable, Now, I am back ordering an amp stand for the amp I just ordered. I believe first impressions are important and thanks to your sales engineer, he has left a lasting impression of great customer service.
