The beauty of the wine country seduced him and Jon never returned to L.A., preferring eventually to raise a family in Sonoma County.

In 1990, Jon returned to television as Timmy all grown up in "The New Lassie" with Dee Wallace. He received a Genesis Award for Outstanding Television in a Family Series for a story he penned for the show focusing on the inhumane treatment of research animals. In recent years, Jon was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and added the internet to his resume, directing and hosting short videos about dogs and cats for a Purina website. 2008 marked Jon’s 50th anniversary as Timmy. He celebrated with the release of his autobiography, TIMMY'S IN THE WELL which he wrote with his wife, Hollywood writer Laurie Jacobson. He is currently writing a cookbook: TIMMY'S IN THE KITCHEN.
