Jonathan Cheever

  • Sport: Olympic Snowboarding
  • Nation: United States of America
  • DOB: April 17, 1985
  • Hometown: Saugus, MA
  • Career Highlights: Cheever doesn’t have the gold medals in international snowboardcross competition to match U.S. teammates Seth Wescott, Graham Watanabe and Nate Holland, but he certainly has promise after an outstanding 2009 World Cup season that featured four top-10 finishes. Those results included a second-place performance in an event last February in Stoneham, Quebec and a fifth-place finish at Cypress Mountain, the venue for the 2010 Olympic competition. Cheever was also sixth at the 2009 Winter X Games, and he’ll try to leapfrog some of his rivals on the way to Vancouver. The Boston-area native already has one thing likely no other Olympian will be able to claim: alongside his snowboarding career, he’s a licensed professional plumber. Cheever will hope to pick up the pace during qualification after three disappointing finishes outside the top 20 in World Cup events this winter.
  • Olympic History: None
