I grew up in the same neighborhood (Branham Heights) as Jon & Ashley and went to the same school (Pikeville Elem. & High School) as Jon in Pikeville, KY. I was shocked to hear of Jon's passing. He was too young. I am deeply sorry for the family's loss and the family is in my thoughts & prayers.

I will absolutely miss Jon with all my heart. He's been a dear friend of mine since the day I met him, and always spoke of his love for his children and wife. I know he will be missed.

Jon and I played online games together for nearly 8 years, and each year was better than the previous. A truly selfless individual, Jon was someone I respected deeply, and loved dearly.

My sincerest sympathies to his family that he leaves behind.

I recently met Jon after having talked to him on the phone several times. He was a fine lawyer and obvously an even finer man who had great love for his family. We will keep his family in our prayers. Jim Harrington

I have found it comforting to see that Jon and Suzie had such a qualitative life to offset what Jon now lacks in quantity. They took on large responsibilities and took lots of initiative and should be very proud. I was Jon's college roomate. We hiked often in school and most recently had climbed on Mt. Hood. Thank God I went on that trip with him... soooo sorry.

Jon was my best friend in kindergarten and we played StarWars at his house after school. I looked at our school pic last week with fond memories and unknowing of his passing and told my son John he was the first Jon of my life. Peace be with you.
