Jon Cross, SAS-AP, ATAP
Chief Security Consultant/Founder


Jon started his career in Law Enforcement for the State of New Hampshire.  After several years of public service Jon left law enforcement and worked in defense contracting.  While in defense contracting, Jon was appointed the liaison between his firm and the DOD where he participated in many cross functional groups that focused on soldier safety.  Since then, Jon launched Black Ops Tactical Consulting.  His attention to detail and the clients needs has earned the firm work for both domestic and international contracts.

Jon lives in Massachusetts with his wife and their three daughters.  The family enjoys spending time outside, being active and serving the community through their local church.

Jon is an avid hunter and fisherman.  His sense of peace comes from the time spent in nature enjoying the gifts that God has given him.

In addition to the outdoors, Jon has flown hot air balloons and raced motorcycles on the amateur moto circuit.   His motto is “If you do not experience it now, you might regret is later”.
