This horrible news hit me pretty hard. He was the only teacher I liked & truly respected.
I've thought of him often since the early 70's & his dedication to us kids at SLV. Truly a great man.

My high school memories were enriched when I joined the SLV Marching band as a "Banner Girl". Holding the letter Z, aka Zelda, resulted in a feeling of joyful pride. Mr Christian taught every member of our marching band compassion. Care for our individual role; care for our role as a collective group. We practiced, traveled and performed as a tight, spirited, nonstop chatting, laughing unit. He embraced the challenge and never failed to organize and raise us to our full potential as a Marching Band to be recognized with great admiration. Under his guidance our band, during 1977 - 1980, won numerous awards. That dang Zelda, made from inches thick Redwood, to honor SLV's majestic natural surroundings, had my arms shaking by the end of a band review. Yet Mr Christian understood the authenticity of our Redwood letters versus those other schools' letters made from nice, lightweight designed plastic. The Banner Girls enjoyed teasing him about our struggles with "the weight we carried" for him. Thank you Mr Christian for the loving kindness and devotion you stood for and for the musical gifts you promoted in our community. I am honored and feel truly fortunate that I got to be one of your students during your impressive run as SLV's band director.

Jon was my high school band director at SLV in the early 70's. As a music teacher myself, I enjoyed socializing with him at the music conferences we both attended. He had a great impact on the music community. Jon will be sorely missed by all whose lives he touched.

My heart felt sympathies go out to the family during this difficult time. I hope that the promise at 1 Thessalonians 4 : 14 can bring comfort. Knowing that there's a hope for the ones we have lost in death an be so reassuring.
