Jon loved his work and was well-liked and respected amongst his peers. One of his greatest professional accomplishments was bringing electron beam welding to nuclear international code. He brought fun touches to the office like Hawaiian Shirt Friday and tried to never take life too seriously.

The last year of his life, Jon enjoyed working with Cypress Lucky Mutts, saving the lives of nearly 30 foster dogs. He enjoyed watching fail compilations, MMA fights, baseball, and following politics. Jon loved relaxing in the garage and smoking a cigar, shooting BB guns, walking his dogs, hiking, the mountains, drinking a good beer, the color blue, Pearl Jam, and grilling meat. But above all, he loved his girls: Rachel Ann, Sarah Grace, Deborah Alice, Rebekah Jane, Megan Elli, and love of his life, Marcie Ann.
