By now, we have all heard the unfortunate news regarding the dismissal of former Ohio State Marching Band Director Jon Waters. To anybody that knows him, you're well aware of how dedicated he has been to his craft, the university and to the students and band members both past and present. His work revolutionized the band, brought them international fame and generated significant amounts of monetary donations for OSU. From the first time he stepped on the field as a band member in 1995 (he was cut in 1994), Jon has bled Scarlet and Gray and positively impacted the lives of so many people across the country. Many of us have shown our support through our Facebook page, Twitter and many other forums but now let's show Jon and his family how much they really mean to all of us. Any donation you can offer will be greatly appreciated and go directly to Jon and his family to use in the way they deem neccesary. Join us #iStandWithJonWaters
