When I first met Jonathan in the early 90’s at Bank of America, he came to Phoenix to introduce himself as my team leader. We hit it off right away and enjoyed our classroom training days. We both went on to work at the America Bankers Association to continue our work in the training and development field. It’s interesting to think back then and now. Throughout his career, Jon always wanted to be the best he could be in what he was doing right now. At the same time, he would take the time to congratulate me in my accomplishment. That’s just how he was. The one part of his career that he was so proud of was when he managed the Wealth Management schools at ABA. The success of the schools was a direct result from his attention to detail and professional client relationships.

Whenever Jon and I traveled to Washington D.C. at the same time, we would make plans for dinner. Most of the time we would not talk about work. We would only talk about how things were going in our lives and laugh about past situations we had over the years. Jon would also call me to meet up for lunch each time he came to Tempe, AZ to help his sister-in-law at her art shows.

Jon was definitely present in the moment and made sure to give each person his undivided attention. I miss Jon tremendously. He was genuine and authentic and I’m a better person for knowing him and experiencing his version of a life of love.

Jon was a great community person and attended and helped in every event.

I was so happy that he attended my HONORIUM last year at the Palms.

I believe what i loved about him most was his positive attitude about life.

He was a strong supporter for our quest for acquiring housing for homeless youth when we started program .

I am broken hearted , but i am so happy that our paths crossed.

We will all miss his presence at all events.
