Born in Riaño (Langreo), Asturias, Jonathan was a product of Valencia CF's youth system. However, during his eight-year link with the club, he could never appear officially with the first team, playing four seasons with the reserves in the lower leagues and also being loaned two times – he was first-choice for CD Numancia and Real Oviedo, being relegated from Segunda División with the latter side.
Jonathan finished his contract with the Che after a loan with lowly Córdoba CF in Segunda División B. Subsequently he returned to the second level, signing with Albacete Balompié and starting for the better part of his stint.
In 2009–10 Jonathán had his first taste of top flight football, joining Levadiakos F.C. in Greece, but being released at the end of the campaign without appearing in a single official game. He then returned to his country's division three, successively representing CD Roquetas and Burgos CF.
Again as a free agent, Jonathan returned to Greece and its Superleague in the summer of 2012, signing for Veria FC. He made his official debut on 15 September precisely against Levadiakos, being sent off in the last minutes of the match following a second bookable offense but contributing to a 0–0 away draw with a series of saves, including one from the penalty spot.
