He was deeply capable in many areas. The greatest attribute that Jonathan possessed was his unwavering devotion to his Mother, Father and his two brothers. He was a doting and loving uncle and will forever be remembered by those who held him dear. To his peers he will be remembered as a well-respected attorney and friend.
