Meet Our Team


Jon, AKA "Foam Jon",
AKA "The Foam Guru"


  • Jon is the owner of the company and has been selling foam since 1977. He started at Fisher Foam on Hastings while his father was a manager.

  • Jon is the most knowledgeable person you will ever meet when it comes to buying foam. Jon is the sort of person you typically never actually get to talk to in a given industry. At Discount Foam, Jon is front and centre for you to talk to.

  • Jon’s dad opened the store in 1981. Jon worked part time with him since the store opened and started working full time in 1986. Jon has been around the industry for even longer as his dad sold foam for other companies before opening his own store.

  • If you have a foam question, Jon is who you want to talk to. Jon is a people person and loves to talk about foam and life. If we are not busy (but hopefully we are) he can chat for hours and will probably offer you a cup of tea eventually. Jon has seen trends come and go and has more experience than most manufacturers. If you have foam questions, you are lucky there is a Jon that you can ask.

  • Jon loves travel, going to concerts and sporting events. Jon’s main focus is on experiences and travelling with his family.

  • Jon loves music! Jon was a trivia master before the Internet made it easy for all to have the answers in seconds. He may still be able to answer faster than you can type.

  • Jon loves to travel. He has visited museums, and seen architecture from around the world. He likes it hotter than most and is quite comfortable in 35 degree plus weather. Some people get a T-shirt, but ask Jon about his mug collection at the shop.


Sean, AKA "The New Guy"


  • Sean started working at Discount Foam in 1992. But he is still ‘The New Guy’. What he lacks in experience, he works hard to make up with effort.

  • Sean gets the most enjoyment from custom creations and solving unique problems that foam can help with. Sean loves giving multiple options and explaining the benefits of them to help you make the best choice for you. We are all unique and so often we are sold one option suits all solutions. Sean is here to help you make the best choice for you.

  • Sean is a part-time stay at home dad and sports nut who loves camping.

  • Sean can talk about all sports. He can have a deep conversation about hockey, football, basketball, baseball, football (soccer) and rugby. He can also explain the rules of cricket (although most people who want to know, already know). Sean also coaches his son’s baseball team.

  • Sean went on three camping trips before he was a year old and is still in love with the outdoors. He has camped extensively throughout BC and loves talking about different parks, landmarks, and outdoor experiences.

Words of Praise from Our Happy Clientele (Testimonials)

My girlfriend and I are just back home to Vancouver, from 55 days of travel across the length and breadth of the North American continent. For the majority of this time, we slept in the back of our Dodge Durango, on a bed of foam supplied by Discount Foam. Both the service and product we received from Discount Foam were of phenomenal quality. Sleeping in our car turned out to be something we looked forward to each day, it was that comfortable! A massive thank you from the two of us, to everyone on the team at Discount Foam, for helping to make our once-in-a-lifetime trip a reality. If you're looking for foam for any purpose, these are your go-to.

We all look forward to what the future of SG-1 will bring and to our continued relations.

This place is awesome! I needed a small piece of foam for a baby bassinet & travelled down from Yukon. I had previously gone to a different foam store & was told I couldn't purchase a piece from him. Discount foam has many years of experience & showed me the difference between two chunks of foam, selling me a cheaper one. I was very grateful for his knowledge. I will be taking my foam back to the Yukon to make a cover for the bassinet. Thank You so much. I will be back!

I went searching for some thick yet inexpensive foam to make wooden upholstered benches for my kitchen nook. Discount foam had a huge variety of thicknesses all at very reasonable prices (possibly my cheapest DIY project). The store will cut it for you at the dimensions you request. My bench has lasted for a year so far and is plush yet firm to sit on.

You will not find a more congenial and accommodating owner than John at Discount Foam. Not only that, John knows foam! Just as important, his customer service & integrity is beyond reproach and I promise that you won’t find more reasonable prices for quality products. Believe me, before finding this store, I paid a lot more elsewhere for foam products. John helped me a great deal and this visit I purchased a sofa bed mattress. I will always return here. John’s attitude is ‘I try to be the best I can be’, and it really shows.

I found John and Discount Foam about 5 years ago ~ when I was looking for a lower lumbar support pillow ~ and was horrified by the prices I saw in orthopedic stores and other top foam shops. It is located on the lower end of Fraser, near E.44 ave ~ lots of parking in behind the store in adjoining lots, plus street parking. Upon entering, it is a tad messy and chaotic, they carry A LOT of types of foam, and they're stacked up to the ceiling in parts. Mattresses, pillows, camping foamies ~ this place is one-stop foam shopping for everyone! John is VERY friendly, and very knowledgeable about foam ~ explaining the different types, and densities I was asking about. I got a large lumbar support pillow with a burgundy zippered cover for only $69+tax~ other stores wanted $100+ for the same item. I recently went back for a support foam mattress ~ John brought out 3, getting me to lie on a wooden bed in the show area, and try them out for personal preference. I needed an odd size he did not have in stock, so he custom cut me the size I needed ~ on the spot. This mattress again was 30% less than the competition and I could not have asked for more friendly, and knowledgeable service. I cannot recommend Discount Foam highly enough ~ the best prices and best service anywhere!

John is great; kind and informative; both I and my sister are happy customers at this shop. I remember when John's dad owned it; he was great to deal with as well; looks like he passed on his business skills to his son. Highly recommended.


Words of Praise from Our Happy Clientele

John delivered and exchanged a mattress to our house (x2) w/ no catch. I really appreciated it. Will come back for another mattress. Extremely quick transaction and you get what you pay for. Thanks!


Words of Praise from Our Happy Clientele

I got my brand new latex foam mattress and nice wooden bed frame delivered today and I couldn't be happier. Jon and Sean were both so awesome! Answering all the questions I could think of and helping me make a really informed purchase. (they know ALOT about foam and are both super friendly!) I also found the price to be more affordable than at other places selling latex foam mattresses. Jon (the owner) was right on time for the delivery, the setup of the bed was swift, and the whole experience chatting with him was great. :) I have now been lying on my new bed for a few hours and it feels wonderful! I should have switched to a foam mattress years ago! I recommend Discount Foam to anyone looking for a new mattress (or people looking for any kind of foam for their foam needs)


Words of Praise from Our Happy Clientele

The experience of buying new cushions for my couch was made not only easy and affordable, but fun as well. I wish I had more couches, I'd totally come back over and over.


Words of Praise from Our Happy Clientele

I believe any place that has exceptional customer service deserves 5 stars!! I bought a new tool box and wanted to get a cheaper alternative foam to the expensive insert you could have bought with the tool box, so I researched and found this place. I came in and the gentleman who helped me was super friendly and funny. Listened to what I was doing and even gave me some great advice to what I was doing. In the end, I left a happy customer and got exactly what I needed. Now I have a really sweet tool box!! Thank you!


Words of Praise from Our Happy Clientele

A quick phone call was all it took to set me on the right path for my new futon. The service here is honest and friendly. They are clearly experts. I didn't make a purchase, but you better believe they will get my money next time!


Words of Praise from Our Happy Clientele

Jon was very helpful in answering my questions about foam and wood storage, thanks Jon!! I have also bought a couple of foam mattresses from him in the past and he was very helpful and his prices are reasonable. This man knows the value of customer service.
