Jonathan or j-rock as I called him was one the most kind, caring people I ever met. He and his family were so welcoming to me. I remember that I had no where to go for the holidays and he invited me to his house to spend time with him and his family so I wouldn't be alone. Jonathan and I spent alot of time together going to movies and watching and talking about anime. Life got in the way and we both went our separate ways. I always wish we found the time to get back together were we left off as friends. I will miss you my friend the world is a little less brighter now that your gone. Good by my friend.

Jon or saber as I knew him as was an incredible person. He always made sure everyone was happy and cheerful when ever he was around. A very infectious laughter that never stopped putting a smile in my face no matter how bad my day and mood was.

You will be missed a thousand times! I am very happy for the opportunity to get to know him the short 2 years ish I did.

Fly safe brother!

When I entered on 504 VFS server, I saw him always cheerfully talking with everyone and made some funny points that even looking the conversation made you laugh. I hadn't the oportunity to talk to him directly, but seeing everyone on the server talking about him, I can't stop thinking that I would have loved to be there even if it was once...

I hope you are still flying fast and without fear, just enjoying yourself while laughing.

I first started talking to Jonathan a couple of years ago when he joined our DCS Squadron. The world was truly a better place with him in it.
I will truly miss him, his sense of humour and infectious laugh.
We never met up in ‘real life’ but he was as close a friend as any.
I’ll always have great memories of flying and playing games together, just sitting on discord laughing hysterically talking about utter nonsense.

Fly safe buddy.

In the 6 short months I knew you I learned what an amazingly funny guy you were
You had a way of laughing at the most irrelevant things, and you had that infectious laugh that got everyone laughing along with you
You were a friend, one that I will miss, I wont be sad as I know you would hate that
I will just remember the fun times, the stupid jokes, the way you made everyone happier by just turning up

I will miss you mate

I’m sorry for your loss of a wonderful and caring person. Jonathan was so easy to get along with and he had a beautiful heart. My fondest memories of him were when we talked about things that excited both of us. He was so easy to talk to and was a joy to be around. I loved how he would brighten up the room with his smile. I will miss that for sure.

You have a beautiful family and I pray that you find comfort in knowing that God has him where he needs to be.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
