I was terribly saddened to learn of Jon's passing.
Jon and I both began our teaching and coaching careers at Greeley West in 1976 (?)
It was a memorable time not in small part due to the lively group of new and veteran teachers and Jon's capable leadership as the master of fun and shenanigans. I recall his hosting a pasta party so he could demonstrate his skills at making homemade fettuccine. While a few of us were making dough, the others were cranking out the noodles. Very soon, there were so many noodles that they were hanging off of chairs, stair railings, patio furniture, the oven door and even from items in the in the garage! Jon brought a passion for helping kids who were developmentally and otherwise in need of "special" programs. He elevated my understanding and commitment to special education for "regular educators" and I went on to promote that value throughout my career as an educator for American schools in Germany. In the summer, my husband and I would often run into Jon at Stampede activities. These were fun, albeit brief reconnections. It was clear that Jon was highly respected not just by former students and their families but also colleagues and those "Old Buckers" at the Stampede. It's hard to imagine how much he will be missed by his family. Jon was one who modeled a generous life well lived and those missing him constitute a large, diverse group of admirers. I am one of those
RIP my friend

We are so sorry we were unable to join you today to celebrate Jon's life. I hope today gives you peace and comfort. I know you will have so many loving memories to hold close to your hearts. There will be a big hole where he sat with the family every year to watch the rodeo. Sending hugs.

John and I have known each other for about the entire time he has worked in Special Ed, since I have been a Special Ed teacher in the district since 1968. John has always been a friendly, cheerful fellow that one looked forward to seeing. With all the meetings, paths crossed often. When he became director of Special Services, he tried hard to be helpful to all professionals and showed concern for students. We also would have had fun chatting about his outside interest in horses. Your memories are so important and a real source of comfort. Blessings for all of his family. Dorothy Benner

Our heartfelt condolences to the family. Jon will be missed by all.

As part of the stampede family we cherish the time we spent with Jon on the Committee. One memory is the year that Jon decided to pay double for Team Ropers. Just about every Team Roper in the country showed up in Greeley that summer.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Go in peace Jon.
