Our 30th anniversary, April 2015

Thank you for visiting my home page!  Take a look around.  And let me know if this site is helpful to you. Email me at [email protected]
My life begins and is centered around my family and my faith. Diane and I have been married since 1985 and have seven wonderful children who are the joy and pride of our lives. Diane and I are also proud grandparents.


Diane and I were invited to move to Ferndale (from Blaine) in 1987 to start the Ferndale Alliance Church.  I have been the pastor and we have together shared the leadership duties of this congregation now for over 30 years.  If you are looking for a friendly neighborhood church we would be honored if you’d be our guest any Sunday.

Jon’s CD: Still Prone To Wander
Jon Mutchler 2014

Piano has always been a big part of my life.  When we moved to Ferndale I bought my first piano and started teaching.  My guess is that I’ve instructed hundreds of Whatcom kids and adults.  I also get to perform now and again and had the pleasure of being the house pianist at Semiahmoo Resort (playing weekends at their nice restaurant) for 17 years. I am also available at times to perform for your special event or function (wedding, corporate party) and I have seven CDs of solo piano music available at my Music Store.

From Blaine Jazz Festival (Drayton Music Festival) 2012

Each year since 2002 I have been on the staff of the Drayton Harbor Music Festival (formerly, Blaine Jazz Festival).  I perform with terrific musicians from around the world, introduce original music, teach jazz and music theory to youngsters, and direct a student combo or two.  One of the funnest weeks of the year for me!  (Side comment:  my father, director of many music festivals, would have been pleased!)

Ferndale City Council Service

We love Ferndale and along the way I felt it would be a good thing to do what I could to shape and contribute to Ferndale’s future over the long term. So, I ran for city council and was reelected to a second term in 2013. Then, following an invitation from the former mayor, I ran for mayor and was elected to that office and served for four years, 2016-2019.  I loved the opportunity to contribute and serve a community that’s growing smart in so many ways.  The good citizens of Ferndale “granted” me a two year break, and I returned to city council work in late 2021.  If you live in Ferndale you know how fortunate you are!  If you visit my YouTube page there are several videos that celebrate the successes of those years.

As I was approaching 50 (I was born in 1959) and was asked to participate on our church’s Ski to Sea team I recognized the need to get fit and take better care of myself.  2009 was the year I started to get “active” again.  Since that time I have completed countless 5ks, about 20 triathlons, a Half Ironman, 8 marathons (including one in Japan), and several 13.1s. Add to that having a blast on several Ragnar and Ski to Sea teams.   I like being healthy. I enjoy being a member of The Locker Room Fitness Gym in Ferndale.

Thank you for stopping by.
