Jonas was born in Uvira, Congo and later relocated to Canada, growing up in Quebec. In 2016, he made the move to Hamilton. Despite encountering numerous obstacles, Jonas remained unwavering in his belief in his dreams, consistently putting in hard work to attain them. In September 2023, he embarked on a new chapter in his life by attending Redeemer University. After successfully trying out for the basketball team, he made the crucial and extremely difficult decision to decline the coach's offer, dedicating his first year to working toward academic stability and investing more time in developing his student character. Basketball stands as his true passion, and he derives immense joy from training young athletes and witnessing their growth in both skill and character on and off the court. His future plans include continuing his academic journey at Redeemer University and becoming a part of the Redeemer Royals family.
