It has been three months since the Jacksonville, FL community lost a wonderful musical genius who departed this world to be with Jesus after enduring a difficult and long-fought battle. Dr. Jon O. Carlson was a great inspiration to many, always strived for excellence, and possessed a strong faith. He transformed the choral community, and I am indeed privileged and thankful to have known him and had him as a professor. In addition to his kindness, I particularly remember the wonderful choral concerts he directed at JU, especially at Christmas, and I also cannot forget the constructive rehearsals he would lead. My thoughts and prayers continue for his family and friends during this difficult time. May God bless them with comfort and peace, and may we all cherish the wonderful memories of Dr. Carlson. Although he is dearly missed, how fitting it is that he should pass on All Saints' Day.
