S. Jonathan Welter

IT Manager

Since 2000



I was born and raised in Missouri. I have called Kansas City, St. Louis, and Columbia all home over the years. My wife, Lara, and I were married in 2004 and we have three boys. I have a bachelor’s degree in computer science. I have worked in a variety of positions and industries over the years, ranging from food service to teen counselor, but I found my home at Raymond starting at the Front Desk of the Hampton Inn – Columbia. I worked in many hotel operations roles before moving to the Madison Office to be on the IT team for the last couple of decades. When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time watching science fiction with my wife and working on woodworking projects and model buildings with my boys.
