Jonathan Eggleston

Staff Accountant


I am currently a student at Hope College majoring in public accounting and business. I plan to eventually obtain the CPA license.

What is your area of specialty – how do you best help your clients?

I am good with QuickBooks; I use my knowledge of how the software works to solve problems and clean up messes. I help clients by efficiently and precisely managing their books and guiding them through daily and monthly accounting processes. I am also good with Excel.

How do you like to give back to the community?

I volunteer at my church taking care of kids, and I’ve also served meals at a homeless shelter.

What are your superpowers – something you’re good at that others should know about?

I am a very curious person. I enjoy learning and growing, and this curiosity motivates me to seek out challenges and solve new problems. Another “superpower” I have is positivity. This allows me to encourage others around me in difficult situations and persevere when times get tough.

Accomplishment you’re proud of?

I am a two-time champion of the Hope Gambit Chess Tournament.

Tell us about your life outside of work (family/pets/sports/activities/interests/hobbies)

I am a member of the Hope College tennis team. I like to stay active in my free time doing just about anything from basketball to hiking to frisbee. I also enjoy playing chess and video/board games with friends! I have two younger sisters who both go to Hope College. A fun fact about me is that I went to high school in South Korea.
