They Call Him the Soul of the Lacrosse World

Jon Urbana is a man who lives in the Denver area. He has a name that is quite known in the area and that’s because he really is a jack of all trades. He’s just one of those all-around good guys that is out there trying to make a difference in the world. He helps those in need whether it’s people or animals, young or old, and rich or poor. It doesn’t matter to Jon Urbana. He simply wants to make the world a better place.

One way Urbana has been doing that is by helping to raise money for a variety of different causes. Right now, he is heavily involved in two different ones that are making great positive impacts in the world. One of those is a fundraising campaign for ARAS which is a no-kill shelter in the Denver area for stray cats. Urbana truly believes in this campaign because he doesn’t believe animals who were abandoned should just go somewhere to die. In fact, Jon Urbana¬†believes they should get a second chance.

Urbana has also been helping out with Earth Force which is a fundraising effort to get the youth mobilized to care about the environment. It’s teaching a younger generation to band together and to take action before it’s too late. The younger crowd is learning all about the benefits and necessities of keeping the world clean.

When Urbana isn’t putting his heart and soul into fundraising, he is focusing on the business world. Urbana is the Director of Ellipse USA. He oversees a variety of aspects within the company and has really been helping it to grow.

Urbana is also co-founder of Jon Urbana’s Next Level Lacrosse Camp. He helps teach youth the skills that he has developed during his Villanova¬†career. He advises them on how to best play the game and how to become the best player that they can be. Overall, Urbana can be seen out in the community doing just about anything. That’s because his passions spread well beyond just one thing. He cares about his lacrosse fans, sports, fundraising, and much more. It’s truly remarkable to see someone devote themselves to so many different causes.
