My sincerest sympathies. Jon was a friend and colleague during my time as Chairperson of HED. He was always positive, interested and interesting. With his wide ranging experience and expertise I could always count on him for engaging ideas and entertaining conversations. He will be truly missed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you from the depths of my heart-he was my friend, my mentor and my rock during my years as a student and instructor at MSU. I will NEVER forget him or the influence he had on my life.
