Jon Lee Brody was born and raised in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. His father of German and Jewish decent and his mother of Korean decent, worked as a civil engineer and business consultant, respectively. Jon attended William Fremd High School where he excelled as a three sport athlete and also excelled academically. His aspirations were to be a professional athlete and like many kids in Chicago he wanted to 'be like Mike'. During high school, Jon was also a Golden Gloves boxer, an avid Martial Artist (he is a second degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do) and also was in the schools' symphony orchestra where he played the violin.

Jon went on to play football at the University of Illinois. However in his sophomore season, Jon suffered an injury that ultimately ended his playing career. He stayed in school and graduated in May of 2007 with a dual degree in Accounting and Finance. Jon was accepted for admissions to prestigious law schools like Harvard and Northwestern, but he instead chose to go against the grain and pursue his other childhood dream: acting. He didn't wait long to buy a one way ticket to Los Angeles, and since then he hasn't looked back.
