Jon Risinger is a graphic designer from California employed by Rooster Teeth Productions as the Art Director. Often referred to as 'The Risemonger' by the lads from Achievement Hunter, Jon is responsible for the creation of many of the most popular T-shirt designs and logos available in the Rooster Teeth Store. He was also responsible for designing the Funhaus logo. Formerly, Jon was a host on various shows for The Know.

Jon has made appearances on the Podcast, Immersion, Sportsball, and Screen Play. He is also the host of Rooster Teeth's game show On The Spot and the former movie discussion show Enjoy The Show.



  • He has no sense of smell (known as anosmia), which he confirmed on Rooster Teeth Podcast #266. He explains in a YouTube video that this is caused by Kallmann syndrome.
  • He had Celiac disease, meaning he can't eat gluten, although he later said in a Periscope that "I can eat gluten now. Don't ask me how, but I can."
  • His thumbs are different sizes.
  • He's a very big fan of comic books and superhero movies.
  • His dog Bella has appeared on The Gauntlet as the redemption dog, an episode of the discontinued RT Recap, the Metal Gear Immersion, [[Million Dollars, But...], and on an episode of The Slow Mo Guys.
  • He was a professor at a college for a short time.
  • He is divorced and has 2 daughters who are 2 years apart in age.
    • Jon adopted his oldest child when she was two days old.
  • He often streams video games on his Twitch.
  • He lived in California for 27 years prior to moving to Austin.
  • He's one of three siblings.
  • He is bisexual.
  • During Let's Play Minecraft Episode 136 - Mega Dig, Jon entered the room and was handed Gavin's controller because the latter had to go to the bathroom. Within the three minutes that Risinger had his controller, he found the final piece of the Negatower, causing him to lose the game for Gavin. The guys just laughed at him, with Michael sarcastically pointing out that people in the comments section were going to "love" Jon for losing the game for Gavin. This can be a lesson for Rooster Teeth and Achievement Hunter: Do NOT let Jon Risinger have your controller and play for you.
