On this first anniversary of Jonathan's death, I wanted to post a link to a page at CCSU that remembers those who died of Covid:
Jonathan is never far from my mind, and is always in my heart.

Jonathan was in several of my courses at CCSU. He was a gifted writer and insightful student. I remember writing brilliant on more than one exam. I always enjoyed seeing him in office hours. He was such a kind young man. My heart broke reading the article in the Courant. To his family and friends, I will remember you and Jon in my prayers.

I met Jon through my niece Victoria and her family. They truly loved him as a member of their family! I only knew first hand,a little of his caring nature and his great sense of humor but know very well all that he meant to them. To you, his parents, I can only say that you had a son you could truly be proud of in every manner. I cannot fathom the pain and loss you are and will be going through but know that your son made an impact in this world even to people that just casually knew him. May he Rest In Peace as he now watches over you and those friends that he meant so much to. You have my deepest sympathy.

I did not know Jonathan however a friend of mine worked with him and said he was a very nice person. I just wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. He sounded like a special person and it's so very sad that this virus took him. I will say a prayer for him during my virtual attendance of Church Sunday morning. May he rest in peace and you have my sincere sympathy.
