Jon, to me, was an inspiration. He did such great things in 21 short years that most of us could hardly do in a lifetime.
He was that friend I could always count on to give me a smile and ask how I’m doing, even if he was stressed or busy. He never once ignored me.
After I first met him I was told he was 20 years old (at the time), and I was so astounded. For such a young guy to be so accomplished and so mature, he must have had such wonderful parents. And I thank you for raising that man to be who he was.
