Jon Mark.
I do not understand why you had to leave us so soon. Our days are darker now.
In my sorrow, I forgot you received the healing you fought so bravely to achieve.
In my sorrow, I forgot that "joy comes in the morning" - and it is now morning for you - forever.
In my sorrow, I forgot to look for your smile in the smile of your children - Lacee and Carson.
In my sorrow, I will try to rejoice for you and the victory you have won.
In my sorrow, I will remember to treasure the memories of our lives together.
In my sorrow, I will look forward to the "joy in the morning" with you again.
I love you,
Sis

I will miss Jon's brilliant humor, his impeccable taste in music, his prodigious talent, and of course that big, beautiful, infectious smile.
Until we meet again...

I knew Jon for a long time. We spent many nights with friends laughing, singing and listening to music. He always made sure that everyone around him was happy and smiling. I'll miss the good times and remember him always. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and loved ones.

I only met him once 20 or so years ago, but he was a straight forward kinda person. Rest Easy Rock Star!!

Jon, You were such a kind and caring guy. I met you through a mutual friend, at a venue in Orange Park. You played, your heart out... Play your music in heaven, and know there many other fan's who admired you... and we will all miss you...

My uncle was only 6 years old when I was born and I was likely about as much fun to him as a pebble in his shoe. And he made sure to keep me humble for quite a few years. When we got older we still joked and teased but it became more about our similarities due to our "twisted family tree" (his exact hilariously true words) that made us stronger and able to joke about the least appropriate things and it always got us through. No matter the jokes or the teasing at the end of the day if he was around he looked out for me. I knew if I needed him he'd answer. He didn't ask for an explanation and it really didn't matter how or why I ended up reaching out to him. Many times over the years as adults he saw me struggle and he would tell me to come out with him for a bit. Or even if he wasn't there he would tell me, "find so and so and tell them you're my niece..they're expecting you". And without fail I would hear, "oh hey, yeah, we were expecting you". He made an amazing family for himself and he was blessed with some of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet and I am better for having met so many of them. He was really a what you see is what you get guy. And when he asked for my support, (which wasn't very often and I think a lot of us can say that) he knew he would have it without any questions. I love my uncle and I am so thankful to have had him for the years I did and I will never hear Queesryche and not think of a concert my uncle was surprised to see his "sweet little niece" at. As I think back, so many funny nights.

Miss you, "uncle ron". I sure do wish you were still here.

Lacee and Carson, you are in my thoughts. I am so sorry you lost your Daddy. I know he's with you in your heart always, though. Will be praying for peace and comfort for you both.

Jon was a loving son, father, & sincere friend to all who knew him. We both helped each other through tough and good times. His smile was infectious and his will to help others endless. We were in competing bands, then joined together as one. His stage presence was unmatched and added the touch we were looking for. 25 years of friendship that has left nothing but positive thoughts and love. If not for Jon, I wouldn’t have met his UPS family which are all class acts. To Lacee & Carson, you have his extended family to lean on. Prayers to all of his family and friends. You will live on in our hearts and souls.
