My deepest sympathy to Jon's family. I was Jon's freshman baseball coach, he made me a better person. His positive attitude and hard work were contagious and made our team experience so much better. I was delighted when Jon after he graduated, volunteered to help me coach, our discussions about life, the future and the Air Force are still fond memories. "It matters not what lies ahead, or what lies behind, but rather what lies inside, for if we have trust, commitment and love we will make a difference with our lives." Jon made a difference.
