Jonathon is the only North American player to ever reach #1 in the world. He marched to the beat of his own drummer and with his quirky, go-for-broke, robust style he injected excitement into every match that made him the competitor that every tournament director dreamed to have in their event. Not slow to question referees’ calls, Jonathan was a player officials liked to watch but would prefer not to referee!
2006 was Jonathon Power’s 14th and final year on the PSA Tour ending with yet another World #1 ranking. Power won 37 career PSA championships, was ranked #1 for much of 1999 and four months in 2001 and had maintained a ranking in the top 10 since 2000.
In 1998 Power won the World Open, the PSA Masters event in 2001, 2002 and 2005 and was winner of the PSA Super Series in both 2002 and 2004.
He represented Canada at world championships as both a junior and senior player and won a number of U.S., Canadian and Ontario championships along the way.
Jonathon was inducted into the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame, the only squash player to have achieved that distinction.
