Jonathan MozingoProgram Manager

Jonathan Mozingo grew up in Virginia hunting with his dad and has always had a great love for the outdoors. In 2005 he graduated from high school in Ashburn, Virginia and joined the United States Marine Corps.

While enlisted in the USMC, Jonathan was stationed at Camp Lejuene, NC with 3rd Battalion 6th Marines. He deployed 3 times to parts of Iraq and Afghanistan while fighting in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. On his 3rd deployment to Afghanistan, Jonathan stepped on an IED and lost his left leg.

Upon returning he recovered at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. He eventually was given orders to Marine Corps Base Quantico where he was a Foreign Weapons Instructor. He attended Sergeants course as the first amputee and was awarded not only, Honor Grad but given the Gung Ho award by his peers. Jonathan continued to work at Weapons Training Battalion filling a variety of roles as an instructor.

It was at Quantico that Jonathan was first introduced to Project Healing Waters. He not only benefited from the program but also it was here that his desire to help others heal from the scars of war was born. Jonathan not only became very interested in fly fishing but found that fly tying was extremely therapeutic.

Jonathan medically retired from the Marine Corps in 2017. He took a job in Texas and relocated his family. He now lives in Weatherford, TX with his wife, Kelly, and their six daughters.
