Jonathan "Jon" Allen Hintz passed away the evening of March 23, 2012, of injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident in Iowa City; he was 28 years old. Jon was born in Des Moines on October 29, 1983 and was the youngest son of Mary and Ron Hintz.

A devoted Hawkeye fan, Jon continued to reside in the Iowa City area working with a great group of people at Geico.

Jon loved all sports participating in soccer, football, wrestling, snow-boarding, rock climbing and biking. He liked to hunt and loved to fish. Jon claimed the family "Big Walleye" Award in 2007 with a 7 ½ lb walleye proudly displayed at the family cabin.
