I met Jon through his love of aviation and continued quest for aviator excellence. From the beginning, his professionalism, attention to detail and sincere thirst for knowledge were apparent. Through the years Jan and I became close friends with Jon and Tawna and had the privilege of meeting several family members. Jon's devotion to his family and the love that he and Tawna shared were so apparent and admired by all that knew them. I will always remember Jon as the consummate husband, parent, grandpa, great grandpa, friend and businessman. We devoured many Florida Stone Crabs, his favorite, at Truluck's restaurant over the years. We sincerely cherish all the times we were able to spend together. We will miss you daily.
