Jonathan Kemp (JK, Jonny K, JK Prowling) is a touring photographer from Jacksonville, FL who has traveled with artists such as Silent Planet, Phineas, Corey Kilgannon, and myself. Many of you know him as the house photographer of Murray Hill Theatre. 

Last night, Jonathan was carjacked at gunpoint as he was pulling into his driveway after leaving the 20th Anniversary of Murray Hill. Thankfully, he left the incident physically unscathed. However, along with his family's car, the thieves aquired his phone, wallet, computer, camera, hard drives, and all of his other equipment. He has spent the last year making an incredible name for himself as a photographer, for which he works full time, spending more time on the road than home. His entire life- his career- was in that car. 

Life goes on, and while the police have found neither the car nor anything in it, Jonathan was planning to leaving for a weekend run up the coast with Corey Kilgannon. We are hoping to fund $6,500 to replace all of his camera gear, phone, and computer.

Anything that you can give will be immensely appreciated. Please help my dear friend get back on his feet. For those of you who don't know him, no person could have deserved this less. 

Thank God for Jonny K, and thank you for giving, sharing the page, and praying.

Hey Guys, Jonathan here. I just wanted to give you all an update on everything. Late last night we got a call saying they had found the car about two minutes down the road from my house. The entire front end was smashed in and I believe they're going to declare it totaled. They also found a few of the stolen items in the trunk, including my camera and computer. Unfortunately, there's a lot of damage to the outside of both, but they are at least still functional for the time being. The lens of the camera is pretty banged up, so it'll probably need to be replaced. They weren't able to find most of the stuff, but since I was able to recover a few items we're lowering the amount. They also have suspects in custody, so we'll see what happens with that. Right now I'm more concerned with making sure they're not able to do this to anyone else.

The amount of support I've received over the last 36 hours has been absolutely insane. All the text messages, Facebook messages, posts on social media, prayers, everything - has been incredible. I'm so blessed to have such great friends and family around me. A lot of you I've never even met and that blows my mind. Thank you so, so, so much for your continued support. God has a plan in all of this and he's already showed his faithfulness through this horrible situation. Love all so much!

I don't know you, but I know God speaks to me in funny ways. Seeing all the support you've gotten so promptly gives me hope that maybe the world is out to get each other, that people can care about each other and help people in their community. I wanted to be a part of that. We don't have bad days or weeks, we only have bad moments.

Never have met you, Sweetie, but I've known your mom since she was a little bitty thing here in Savannah along with your grandparents (Scotts). I've read several of your notes and posts and love hearing your spiritual insights. We have great respect for you all and thank God you were not harmed. ♥

The Lord is with you and will hold you up through much more that this. Small token - wish it could be more.
