Early life[edit]

Sumrall grew up in a Christian home.[2] He says: "My dad was one of the pastors at Applegate Christian Fellowship and my whole family was very involved with the church on a daily basis. It grew to be a very large church of nearly 7,000 people and I found myself even at a very young age in a bit of the spotlight. By the time I was 12 years old, I was involved in leading worship as well as helping with some of the younger Sunday-school groups. I feel like being on stage has been a part of my entire life but little did I know then how these experiences would play into my life."[2]

Music history[edit]

He has been the lead vocalist for the Christian rock band Kutless, since its inception in 1999. Sumrall's individual musical recording career commenced in 2015, with the album, Faith & Family, and it was released by BEC Recordings on February 24, 2015.[3]

Personal life[edit]

Sumrall currently lives in West Linn, Oregon,[1] with his wife and two kids.[2][4]

He enjoys when he has time off the road to do snowboarding or skiing off high jumps and gets to be an adrenaline junkie. He loves to listen to nature for example a waterfall or the rustling of leaves. During Jon's life he has had 3 surgeries for broken bones, dislocations, and sprains.[2]
