To say that I'm humbled is an understatement. To express my appreciation doesn't seem adequate. I'm so overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support. This is a true testament to who Jon was.
He was an honest man who believed in helping everybody without expecting anything in return. Through this fund for Travis and Ema, he continues to provide for us even after his departure. I can't even begin to describe how much this means to me and our children. If given the opportunity, I would thank each and every one of you. Jon has touched so many people in his life and I am eternally grateful that you have chosen to honer him through this fund. Let us continue sharing stories and memories of Jon so his life will never be forgotten. I feel like the luckiest girl knowing that he chose me and that our children will have their fathers love with them forever.
Thank you all so much, from the bottom of my heart.

Today will be a difficult day for everyone who was a part of the events that occurred one week ago today. I wanted to let you all know I'm thinking of you. Jon's family received the worst news they could have imagined receiving that day, but with the huge outpouring of support both emotionally and financially they are feeling loved and supported. For that I can't say enough. I look forward to tomorrow with mixed feelings as I know Lora and the kids do as well. Seeing the faces of all who loved Jon and continue to love his family will certainly bring some peace to all of us. Hugs to you all. Kristen

Lora, Travis, Ema; My family and I are so sorry for your loss. Jon was an amazing man. He was a friend, a teacher and a father figure to me. I always looked up to Jon. He taught me everything I know about tree work, and for that I am grateful. He also taught me a lot about family values, he always spoke very highly of Travis, Ema, and of course Lora. Jon had a great sense of humor, he called me Danny instead of Ben. He said I was a dedicated Danny at work. I also remember how Jon would make time for me and my Wife Betsy whenever we moved, he was always there to help. I loved going to his house to split wood, we always had fun working together. We will miss you Jon.

John was a great friend and was always there to help me out with my landscape company. I always admired his strong work ethic, and appreciated his vast landscaping knowledge that he shared with me. my thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
