Jonathan Tuthill is the youngest of 3 children born to David & Tammy Tuthill (Megan/23; Mollie/20; Jonny/18).  On the morning of August 9, 2016, one day after his 18th birthday, Jonny's life was tragically lost in an automobile accident while on his way to work.  Jon died that morning just before 8am.  He was about to start his senior year at Grand Ledge High School and couldn't have been happier. (

To those who knew Jonny well, he was happy, vibrant,  and loyal .  He loved the game of baseball as much as anything in this world.  He loved to deer hunt, kayak, hammock with his friends, and socialize any chance he had. He had a great zest for life, a contagious smile, and a great sense of humor.  His loss broke like a wave through the Grand Ledge and the Mid-Michigan baseball community touching all who knew him both on and off the field.  Jonny would be proud to know just how much he influenced the world around him. He is loved and missed by so many.  We are all better for having been his family and his friends.  (

On Monday, July 17th, the Tuthill family and close friends will be hosting a first annual memorial scholarship fundraiser in Jonny's name.  This is a great cause and 100% of funds raised will help students fulfill the college dreams Jon never got to realize.  This is NOT an event to cover funeral or medical expenses.

We realize not everyone can make it to the fundraiser event, but you can donate here!  It's our hearts desire that Jonny is never forgotten.  For more memorial scholarship event info, please go to

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for participating!!!!
