Jon Gibson Is the Chief Executive Officer of J&J Diving Corporation. A lifetime resident of New Orleans, upon graduating high school he attended Jones County Community College in Ellisville, Mississippi. While working offshore on drilling rigs as a roughneck to put himself through college, he discovered he wanted to be a commercial diver. Jon attended Young's Memorial Dive School in Morgan City, Louisiana and received his commercial diving certification. Working with some of the largest diving companies in the gulf, Jon’s prior experience in the oilfield distinguished him from other divers, and he rose quickly through the ranks serving as diving supervisor and as operations manager for several diving companies.
Seeing an opportunity to bring better service at a competitive price, Jon partnered with Jeff Sikut in 2001 and started J&J Diving Corporation. Jon believes that J&J’s success is because of our personal approach and commitment to giving the customer what they want, quality diving work done safely and honestly.
