Jon Kurt Gildesgaard was born 29 Aug 1956 to Margaret Anderson and her husband, Kent Gildesgard in Eureka, Humboldt County, California. His mother, Margaret, divorced Kent and as a teacher, raised Jon during his childhood on the Cobb Ranch on Sproul Creek Road, Garberville, Humboldt County, CA with her mother - his grandmother, Yvonne Cobb Stull. The three moved to Paradise, California where Margaret was hired as a teacher for additional childhood years. They then moved to Carmel Valley, where Margaret continued to teach. Jon wished to visit his father later in his childhood, and his mother sent him for a summer's visit in Eureka. Jon asked if he could remain with his dad during the balance of his childhood, which she allowed due to her trememdous love for her son and her keen knowledge that boys do need a father to guide them.
Emily Gildesgard was his step mother.
