Jonathon “Jon” Young Knoll, age 17, of Indianapolis, passed away December 13, 2020. He was born on July 12, 2003 in Indianapolis to Christa and Eric Young Knoll. Jon was a Senior at Cathedral High School.

Jon was and incredible son, brother, friend and team-mate. He truly lit up any environment with his positive energy and prankster smile. He had recently become quite the entrepreneur selling comics and Supreme gear over the internet. He loved to fish by himself at the farm or anywhere with friends. Jon was very proud of and enjoyed maintaining his beautiful aquarium. He was passionate about snow skiing whether in Indiana or his favorite place, Utah. His other favorite place was sailing around the British Virgin Islands. This produced many great memories for our family and family of friends. He spent countless hours playing and practicing soccer where he met some of his most amazing friends. Jon had many other close and amazing friends from St Matthew and Cathedral. Even though he loved being with his friends, he loved being at home with his family and dogs, which is what he was trying to do Saturday night - come home to us.

Jon is survived by his parents, Eric and Christa Knoll; older brother and sister, Jacob and Monica Peebles, younger sister, Chelsea Knoll (a freshman at Cathedral); grandparents, Roger and Becky Hansen, Joe and Kay Noel, Edith Hansen, and David and Dianna Knoll. Aunts and Uncles include Kathy, Karen, Kelly, Casey and Jeff. Also, his beloved dogs, Tora, Kira, and especially Keko who slept with him every night and clearly misses him. Jon was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Delmar Dirk Young.

Jon and I first met our sophomore year in Chemistry class. We all had this ongoing joke that Jon and I were going to prom together. I would have been blessed to go with him. In class, Jon was always quiet whereas I talked his head off. Looking back on it now, I would just sit and go on and on about God knows what. Jon always listened though, gave his little smile and a laugh here and there. He always made my day brighter, He didn't even know it. We continued to have classes together for the rest of high school. He was just one of those people who whenever you saw him, you had to say hi. I'm so thankful to have had the opportunity to be impacted by him. Heaven gained an amazing angel.

Jon and I had the same resource sophomore year. We never got any work done because all we did was joke around the whole time. Jon was always smiling, and I could always count on him saying hi to me in the hallway or making me laugh when I was in a bad mood. There’s nobody as sweet and selfless as you, gonna miss you Jon ❤️

The first time I hung out with Jon outside of school I talked to him all night, and when me and my friends left the first thing we all said was how funny Jon was and how we needed to hang out with him way more often. He made all of us laugh even though he seemed so quiet.

Freshman year we always had a full car on the way to games. This was the Trinity game. The boys just sang in the car the whole way. I love this picture because they look like babies and it captures Jon's smile/smirk. We love Jon. And we love what he brought to our family. He taught Gabe to love fishing and skiing. People who can fish together for hours must have a lot in common and must love each other.

I had Jonathon in class during my first two years of teaching. As a new teacher, I could not have asked for a better group of students to learn from and laugh with. Jonathon was such a kind, funny, and bright student, and it was obvious that his classmates loved being around him. He had an infectious laugh and a mischievous smile that made everyday interesting. These traits and fond memories will live on through Jonathon's many friends and all those whose lives he impacted.
My deepest condolences to the Knoll family. Sending many prayers of comfort and peace to your family.
