In an interview with The Huffpost, Jon shared that his wife is strict with their child. He said, "His mother is crazier than me, so he definitely doesn't wanna get his mom pissed off."

Regardless, he has faith that his big boy is capable of making wise decisions. He also mentioned that he had raised his kid similarly to his parents, who were strict when necessary. 

Thanks to his parents, he has been able to amass a huge fortune with his success.
