The Teachings of Jon

Directed by Jennifer Owensby



An insightful and soul-touching film about Jon, a 40-year old man, severely and profoundly affected by Down syndrome and how a family allowed themselves to change, grow and succeed because of him.

This award-winning, soul touching and funny documentary about Jon, a 40 year old man with Down syndrome, ponders the serious questions of how we value each other and what is truly important in life. Although Jon has an IQ of 20 and doesn’t talk, he has an important purpose….not necessarily to learn, but to teach
