I find it the most disturbing when someone so young passes for whatever reason it may be. It seems as though Jonathan had an entire life of adventure ahead yet not to be. May the Road Rise to Meet Him...RIP

I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Jon. I knew Jon from my R.I.T. years and was in his class. He was always a great kid, friend and student. His enjoyment of the outdoors, and seeing his posts from hiking, always inspired me to do more of the same.
My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
