Jon Bunch left this earth too soon. With his voice and his positivity, he left an indelible impression on everyone he met or played for, including me. The outpouring of sadness and support for Jon on Facebook and other channels from around the world has been overwhelming. I am lucky to have been blessed with Jon's friendship for so many years and want to do whatever I can to help wherever its needed most.

Jon has a 12-year old son, Jack, that he would have loved to see go to college. This fund is being established with the future cost of Jack's higher learning as its primary objective. Second, Jon's family will need assistance with funeral-related expenses. Finally, Jon's mother conveyed that her son always had a passion for helping kids in need and so a portion of the proceeds will be allocated to a children's charity of the family's choosing.

Any amount you can offer is greatly appreciated and will be put to use toward the above three goals. Additionally, several of us are in the early stages of planning several music-related benefit events in Jon's memory, which will hopefully ease his family's burden somewhat at least financially. 

Thank you in advance for your love and support.

My good friend Tony was kind enough to encourage me to write about the experience of helping organize the Jon Bunch Memorial Benefit Concert back in March. The piece was originally published in England in his zine, Suspect Device. Here's a link in case you'd like to check it out. Thanks again for reaching out to me, Tony!

The accounting is done and I am pleased to report that the net proceeds to the fund from the memorial show total $30,369!!! This includes ticket and Rev booth sales and has already covered the costs for the documentary dvd and live cd chronicling the SoCal show on 3/20 with proceeds going to further support this fund. I will post a release date here once it is known. There are also several auctions underway through Revelation, so keep your eyes on their eBay page.

We also have a date and venue confirmed for the east coast show - Saturday, June 25 at the Theater of Living Arts in Philly featuring Sense Field with special guest vocalists, Further Seems Forever, and acoustic Texas is the Reason performed by Garrett Klahn. More bands to be announced.

Thank you all again for your ongoing support!

Kuddel, we tried to get PayPal access but GoFundMe couldn't do it. Casey tried the whole day yesterday. As an alternative I could offer you, you wire the money to me and I'll donate in your name. However, we're still trying to get a solution for my fellow Europeans.

I was taken aback when I heard about Jon's passing. He was incredibly talented both as a songwriter and a performer. His influence upon so many bands I enjoy can be felt and he'll be greatly missed. I know nothing can ever replace your dad, but hopefully the people whose lives were touched by your father's music here can help give you a measure of comfort over time.

While listening to an old Sense Field record I looked up the band online. So sad to hear about Jon's passing... one of my favorite voices in all of punk / hardcore ever. My condolences to the family, and all the best for Jack growing up!!
