Jon Mathson Memorial Fund

On May 20, 2017 the world lost an amazing man, husband, father, son, brother, teacher, and friend in Jon Mathson.  Jon had a love of many things bicycling, birding, nature, teaching, beer, and the North Shore but the things that he loved the most were his wife Becky and his two sons Dylan and Ryan.  As we grieve, we must also remember that in addition to these tragic losses, there is now a family facing a terrible uphill climb in the coming months.

This campaign, organized by close friends and family, aims to defray any upcoming costs both Becky and Dylan will encounter both in the immediate and distant future.  All donations will be presented to the family along with the thoughts and support.  We encourage you to post a memory, prayer or thought as we look to support Becky and we still want to remember the amazing man that Jon was, his smile, his laugh, his witty sense of humor, and the fact that we are all better people for having called him our friend.

We are so thankful for any donation, support, prayer, or comment. Please share this campaign and help us be a shoulder for the family to lean on in this time.

Like a bird sings in the rain, let grateful memories survive in time of sorrow

-Robert Louis Stevenson
