Jonathon di Donato is the twin brother of James di Donato who are both open water swimmers and butterfly specialists. They are also known by their nickname, the Tiger Twins, and swam 40.6 miles in 20 hours 6 minutes in an attempt to swim 60 miles from the Bahamas to Palm Beach County, Florida in 1985.

They once attempted a crossing of the English Channel doing butterfly in 1981 and did a 10-mile swim in the Atlantic Ocean off Florida.

In 1983, Jonathan and James, 29-year-old identical twin swim instructors, swam the 28 miles around Manhattan in nine hours and 43 minutes to become the first to circumnavigate the island doing the butterfly.
