Jonathon Mann - 1983 Track


After moving to Wayland from California his sophomore year, Mann left a lasting imprint on the Wayland cross country and track program the rest of his high school career.

As a sophomore, Mann was a Junior Olympic national champion in the 800 meters with a clocking of 1:53.97. During his senior year, Mann set the Wayland cross country course record and set a state record in the indoor 600 meters and the outdoor 800 meters. He was named an All-American in the 800 his senior year.

Mann's versatility and talent was on display during a dual meet with Bedford his senior year when he won the 100 and two mile in the same meet.

Mann went to Stanford University where his collegiate career was sidetracked by injuries. Graduating from Stanford with a political science degree in 1987, Mann earned a law degree from the University of Maine in 1994. He is currently general counsel and secretary for TAC Worldwide in Dedham.

Mann met his wife Ann at an indoor track meet when she was competing for Lincoln-Sudbury. They are the parents of two children: Veronika and Tyler.
