My thoughts and prayers go to the friends and family of Jon. I had the pleasure of meeting and working Jon at Gulfstream. He will be greatly missed.

- Jason Standish, Savannah, GA

I had the pleasure of going to Georgia Aviation with Jon and working with him at Gulfstream. I remember his smile and good attitude always. I even have a story about him, 'He and I were working on a G650 on the ramp last summer. We were closing up the doors on the airplane for the day. He was closing the tail compartment door and I was about to close the main entry door. As he was walking toward the front, I hit the switch to close the door and skydrol overflowed out of the vent all over him. I immediatly ran back to him to see if he was ok, and really expected him to be upset about it. He just smiled at me and walked into the hangar to clean up, I offered to go buy him a new blue t shirt from the company store and he wouldnt let me. Told me everything would be alright.' I will miss working with you Jon. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

For the family of John I'm sorry for your tremendous, temporary loss of a beautiful person. He was a awesome person to everyone he came in touch with. We started and finished aviation school together and became roommates when we landed a job with Gulfstream. Out of the years I've known John I never once seen him get upset with life, he had a kind heart. I'll keep riding those hills and will keep looking in the side mirror for you, I'll miss you my friend. Be with GOD.

John you will be missed. Your a great co-worker and even better friend. You will be missed and never forgotten.

- Bradley Long, Guyton, GA

My husband Brandon and myself had the honor of being friends with John for 9 wondeful years. We all became friends at the aviation school and all moved to savannah together. I can honestly say he was one of nicest people I have ever known. Always had that amazing smile on his face. We will cherish the many memories of bonfires at the aviation apartments and sitting on the balcony at the apartment listening to music. We loved our tiny christmas tree we put out there. Please know that God has his arms around you all. We have you all in our prayers.
