He was preceded in death by two brothers: Father Naseeb and Dr. Edward.

Jon, along with his former wife, Jackie, spent many years fostering children. This was Jon's passion in his life to mentor these children, whom called him “Uncle Jon”. During his stay in Texas, he was on several committees, including March of Dimes and MLK programs, and was active in Texas Special Olympics.

Jon was an active marathon runner for many years. When he stopped running, he would walk 3 miles daily. His whole day revolved around his walk.
