Jon was one-of-a-kind and vital young man of 28 when I met him in SFCA in the early 1990s. An artist and informal impressario, he encouraged me to pursue my dream with a huge smile and slap on the back. Just learned yesterday that he has gone to be with the Lord via his friend Susie. The world was definitely a better place from his being a part of it. All the blessings to Jon and the family and friends he left behind here.
