Jonathan Stringer Family Fund

Edit 1/14/19 - From Rod, Jon's Father:

Jonathan F. Stringer died January 9, 2020.  He was on a job site, helping save a man from a collapsing trench.  He succeeded.  It was Jon’s nature – helping others.   Jon was born May 4, 1995 in Everett Washington and attended schools in Tenino, Tumwater and Rochester.  He had many great loves -- his family and friends, baseball and fishing.  Jonathan played baseball on seasonal teams that spanned the year.  He kept up to date on team and player stats -- especially his favorite team, the Mariners.  He was a fierce competitor until he threw a pitch that blew out his elbow – resulting in a cast and the end of his seasons.  Fishing gave him joy.  He delighted in reeling in dinner or just getting fortunate when everyone else was snagging algae.  What he liked most about fishing was it gave him time to sort his thoughts.  He was devoted to his family. There are many members, but his greatest happiness was his daughter Remington and fiance’, Ashlee Thompson.  Their lives made him laugh and strive to be a better man. 

Jonathan is survived by Ashlee and Remington as well as his parents, Rod and Kristi Stringer, sisters Tish, Ashley Edwards (Jon), Kara Brown, brothers Robby and Chris, niece Rylee Edwards and nephew Wesson Reynolds, and the Brown family.  

This GoFundMe is set up by Evan Stichler, someone he worked with, and the funds will go directly to the family during their time of need.

A celebration of life remembrance will be held on Saturday, January 25, from 1-3 pm.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to Jon's family here.

Any support and prayers are greatly appreciated.
