Jon loved his family and friends. He also loved teaching his students at Baldwin High School. Jon enjoyed being outdoors. He aspired to be a cartoonist and no paper that got in his way was left without some kind of drawing on it. He thought "Free Comic Book Day" should be considered a national holiday. Jon dominated in any kind of trivia, especially movie. He also got a kick out of putting his own words to existing tunes or creating his own whenever the mood struck.
