Jon Ryan was born and raised in Regina, Saskatchewan Canada. Jon started playing football in the Regina Minor Football (RMF) system at just 7 years old. Jon later attended Sheldon-Williams Collegiate where he played just one season of high school football. In that season, as a running back, kicker, punter, and returner Jon helped the Spartans to a city and provincial championship and was named to the city all-star team as punter and named team MVP.
After High school Jon stayed in his home town to play for the University of Regina Rams and legendary head coach Frank McCrystal. In his 4 years with the Rams Jon was named to the Canada West All-star team as a punter 3 times and once as a receiver, named first team All Canadian as a punter twice and named team MVP after his last season.
Jon was drafted in the 4th round, 24th overall in the 2004 CFL draft by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Jon made the Blue Bombers in his rookie year. In his second season he posted a 50.6 yard punting average and a net punting average of 42.3, both all time CFL records. As well Jon was nominated for Outstanding Canadian and Outstanding special teams player.
In 2006 Jon signed with the Green Bay Packers. After the 2006 season Jon was selected by his teammates to receive the Ed block Courage Award which is awarded annually to one player on each team and is considered to be one of the most prestigious awards an NFL player can receive. In 2007 Jon played in all 16 regular season games and both playoff games including the NFC championship game which the Packers lost in over time.
5 days before the start of the 2008 season Jon was released by the Packers. Less then a week later he signed with the Seattle Seahawks. Jon averaged 45.6 yards per punt in his first season, which is the highest average in Seahawks history.
Jon became the first Saskatchewan born player to win the Super Bowl in 2014 when the Seahawks defeated the Denver Broncos. In the third quarter of the 2015 NFC Championship Game, Ryan threw a touchdown pass to Garry Gilliam. He is the first punter to throw a touchdown pass in a NFL playoff game and the first Canadian to do so since quarterback Mark Rypien in 1993
Jon is entering his 8th NFL season.
Jon is engaged to comedian and New York Times best selling author Sarah Colonna. Jon’s favorite thing to do is spend time with his Fiancée, Mother, siblings and his 10 nieces and nephews. After his football career Jon plans on getting involved in real estate.
