Jailer Jon Sallee

Jon began his career in public service in 1998 when he became a member of both the Jessamine County Fire District and the Wilmore Fire Department. He has continued as a member of the Jessamine County Fire District for the past 19 years. Jon then fulfilled his lifelong dream of becoming a law enforcement officer when joined the Nicholasville Police Department in 2002. Since that time he has served in law enforcement in different capacities including the Jessamine County Sheriff's Office, The Bluegrass Airport Fire and Police Department and for the past seven years as the Jessamine County Jailer. Jon is a lifelong resident of Jessamine County and is married to his high school sweetheart Mandy (Jenkins) Sallee. They live on a farm in Jessamine County with their four daughters and assortment of animals. They are members of the Jessamine County Goat Producers Association and their daughters show goats as members of the Jessamine County 4-H Hoofprints Livestock Club. Their family is active members of Jessamine Christian Church.
