July/August 2018 Veteran of the Month – Jonathan Ramos

The Office of Veterans Affairs & Military Programs at UConn is pleased to honor Jonathan Ramos as our Veteran of the Month for July/August 2018.  Jon is the newest addition to the team in the Office of Veterans Affairs & Military Programs at UConn.  Beginning July 6th, Jon will be serving as Veterans Benefits Coordinator for students and their families on-campus.

Jonathan Ramos is a Navy Veteran who served 6 years on the USS Annapolis, based out of Groton, CT.   When he left the Navy, Jon made good use of the VA Educational Benefits available to him and enrolled in UConn’s Sociology program.  While pursuing his undergraduate education at UConn, Jon also worked part-time through the VA Work Study program, helping fellow student veterans use their VA educational benefits.  Upon graduation, Jon was hired at Manchester Community College (MCC) as a Veteran Services Associate which entailed processing student Veterans Educational benefits in addition to providing support and advocacy to student Veterans.  During that time, Jon also pursued his Masters in Professional Studies of Human Resources Management.

Please take some time to introduce yourself to Jon Ramos in the upcoming Fall 2018 semester!  We are very pleased that Jon has joined our team at UConn, where he will continue the very excellent work for student Veterans.
