Funeral for Jonathan Blackmon

My brother Jon was tragically killed on July 29th, 2018. Jon had a mental illness and was diagnosed with bipolar, clinical depression, and a severe manic disorder which caused him to react in ways that was drastically different from the Jon we all know; the Jon who was loving, talented, intellectual, funny, and a joy to his family and close friends.  Jon had a charismatic attitude and outlook on life and we are saddened by his sudden and tragic death. He was like a brother to many,  a mentor, and a loyal friend to many members of the Milwaukee community. 

Mental health should be taken seriously and as a tribute and in Jon's honor, I am humbly asking for your help. We need to raise $3,000 dollars to cover the expenses for Jon's homegoing ceremony.

More information in regards to his funeral arrangements, (date, location, ect.) will be updated as soon as the details are solidified. 

Thank you.
