I worked with Jon's sister Jill at Samtec and she recommended him for some plumbing issues. He met my husband and me at the house along with our 148 lb. rottweiler Georgia. I ran into him later on he told me he had just lost one of his rotties and we shared a moment only people who understand the breed of brawn and childlike mentality of such a wonderful dog share. I had lost our yrs ago only after having her for 8 yrs. it ripped our hearts out and he told me it really bothered him coming to the house after she had died. He was a very good plummer and when he left there was never a mess. Very polite too. I was truly sorry to hear of his death and want to express heartfelt sympathy to his family. Saw him at kroger and I was recovering from same surgery he had and found out we even had same surgeon. He told my husband how to fix something without charging us? Wow what a nice man. I look forward to seeing him in the resurrection here again on this earth. Healthy and happy without the stuggle hes had to deal with now.

My wife Laura and I just heard of Jon’s passing and we are so sad. He was a plumber, yes, but also a friend. He helped us through all kinds of messiness with expertise and good humor. He was always there for Laura’s aging mother, even when perhaps there was nothing really wrong. He always went the extra mile and was so kind and trustworthy. As a trusted professional and as a friend, he is irreplaceable and is already sorely missed. His family and friends have our condolences. He made such an impact with us who saw him just a few times a year. Truly, a bright light that shines elsewhere now.

Joe and Jon were our neighbors when they lived in Davenport, IA on 47th Ct. Our son Matt was a neiborhood friend. They spent lots of time at each other’s homes. Our youngest son even remembers them and he was 9 years younger than his older brother.
So sorry for your loss.
From the Wickersham family.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Jon and his family. We were grateful in getting to know "Jon the Plumber" not only as a friend but the excellent plumber that he was. We will miss him and the smile he always had.

My heart is full of sadness at the loss of this young man. I met him when he was in high school, a friend of my daughter. I can’t think of him without picturing his huge smile. He was full of life, kind hearted, had a giving nature and was a hard worker. Jon started doing work for us as a plumbing apprentice, we were one of his first customers. He started his own business and you could count on his work to be good and his bill to be fair. He did work for many friends and family and everyone who met him loved him. Jon, you will be greatly missed, may you Rest In Peace in the arms of our loving savior.

Jon was a great guy. We were blessed when he became our plumber about 15 years ago. He became a friend and always treated us respectfully and right. His workmanship was meticulous he always checked everything. We certainly enjoyed visiting and talking with him during any repair work. We loved Jon and will certainly miss him. We extend our deepest sympathies to all of his family

Jon was one of the most honest, kind, and conscientious people I’ve met. We knew him as “Jon the Plumber” and became friends over the years. He was and will always be the gold standard for how I expect people who I hire to behave. Jon was always great with the kids and just a great guy to talk with. I had a lot of respect for him and am very sad to hear of his passing.
