It's common for the public to get concerned about the personal lives of their favorite celebrities and without exception, Jon has many eyes waiting to catch a glimpse of his personal front.
However, to everyone's disappointment, Jon has largely remained mum when it comes to revealing his dating or married life.
There are sketchy details of his dating life with bits and pieces of info here and there. He was previously reported to have dated actress Kimberly Rose McConnell. The couple started dating back in 2011 and evidently shared quite a strong bond.

As weird as it seems, Jon stopped sharing the images of and with Kimberly. For fans who had been treated to four years of relationship treatise, the stoppage of information was mystifying and confusing in equal measures. Not only did he stopped sharing the pictures with his loved one, but his public appearances with his girlfriend also halted.
That left fans scratching if the couple has parted their ways or are just protecting their privacy. The confusion lingers till today, and it remains unclear if the pair broke up or just preferred a low-key relationship.
