Home city: Chapleau, Ontario
Date of crash: September 26, 1998

Jon, or Jesus as his friends liked to call him, was a passenger in a truck with several others. When the driver lost control and the truck landed on its roof Jon was the only one wearing his seatbelt. The belt held him in place and subsequently was killed because of it.

Memorial Message

The following message was provided by Jon’s oldest sister, Natalie on behalf of his father, mother, two sisters Chantal and Nicole, all of his friends, hockey buddies and extended family.

Tears will silently flow
For what it meant to lose
No one will ever know.
In memory of the best brother a girl could ask to have. A loving son, and the one who always kept us on our toes. You were taken away too early. We’ll love you always.

To our Loved one in Heaven

Although you’re no longer with us
And in heaven up above
Still we miss you terribly
With a heart so full of love.
There is a world between us
And we know you’re in good hands
Yet, there’s an emptiness you left
Our hearts don’t understand.
No one on earth could take your place
There is only one you
Your memory enfolds us like a hug
Through all we say and do.
We think of you in happy times
Though often its through tears
Wondering what you would think and feel
If only you were here.
We know someday we’ll meet again
In Paradise with God
We’ll be together as before
As God’s loving reward.
For now your many memories
Will simply have to do
But every waking moment
Please know we think of you.
