My Last Divorce Jon and Maila Ellfson went through their own divorces in the 80s, and again in 2008 when Maila’s adult daughter went through divorce. They joined Family Innocence as advocates, with a view toward seeing to it that others never endure what happened to their daughter. Jon and Maila have been married to each other for 20 years. Jon is a retired pastor, and Maila is a pre-school teacher who ran for city council. They provide a spiritual and political pulse, and supported a law that prevents courts from ordering domestic abuse victims to reside together.
