We were very sorry to hear of Jon's unexpected passing, and our deepest condolences go out to Nate, Claire and Olivia. Few people have faced such adversity with Jon's abundant cheerfulness and positive attitude. He was not only an inspiration for the scouts, but also for the adult leaders. He was a great leader, and we are grateful that our sons were able to benefit from his leadership and example. We will keep you in our prayers.
