Originally from Houston, Texas, Jon Gentry currently resides in Los Angeles by way of Boston and San Francisco.
Jon received his BA from Harvard University where he was an integral member of BlackCAST (Community and Student Theater), serving as President during his junior year. During the summer of 2006, he moved to Los Angeles and completed an internship in development at New Line Cinema. It was then when he realized he had to be in LA surrounded by so many ambitiously creative people and their wild imaginations.
Deciding to dedicate himself and pursue the craft of acting, he matriculated at American Conservatory Theater, where he received his Master's Degree in Acting in 2010. While in San Francisco, he performed at numerous regional theaters, including ACT, Aurora Theater, Shakespeare Santa Cruz, Asian American Theater Company, and Precarious Theatre. After graduating, he performed and taught for a year in San Francisco before relocating to Los Angeles.
