Biography

As a teenager, Jonathan Kathrein became the first person to survive a great white shark attack at Stinson Beach--Northern California's most popular beach. He swam to shore and was airlifted to safety. After high school, he attended U.C. Berkeley, where he spent summers and weekends working in the United States Senate, commercial real estate in Hawaii, a San Francisco law firm, and as a spokesperson for Bay Area non-profits.

In 2004, Mr. Kathrein started his professional career by inspiring youth leadership full time. He co-founded Future Leaders For Peace, a non-profit organization that has taught over 15,000 young people healthy relationships, leadership, and conflict resolution skills. He has worked with at-risk youth in California, South Africa, England, and Hawaii.

Jonathan Kathrein's book for children, Don't Fear The Shark (2006), shares his experience in the jaws of a great white while serving as a metaphor for our lives and relationships. It encourages children to treat everyone with kindness and respect, even when we are treated unfairly. These important life skills, learned at a young age, are present in all of his work.

More recently, Mr. Kathrein teamed up with his mother to share his triumphant and life-changing encounter in a memoir, Far From Shore: A Mother's Memoir of a Shark Attack (2009). The book chronicles his shark attack and recovery, with a focus on the impact it has had on his family and community.

Today, Mr. Kathrein positively impacts youth, as the Chairman of E3: Education, Excellence & Equity (formerly Future Leaders For Peace), through speaking engagements, and as a consultant for non-profit organizations. He balances the rest of his time raising his new baby girl and working as an executive speaking coach, traveling around the county to teach communication skills for both large and small audiences.

Jonathan Kathrein won the Jefferson Award for Public Service (2007). He has been featured in Sports Illustrated magazine, the San Francisco Chronicle, The New York Times, Discovery Channel's Shark Week, Dateline NBC, and Germany's People of The Year (1998).
