He was a single father. He loved being Mr. Mom to his daughters, Kristina and Candace. Their education was extremely important to him and he made sure they had the best education possible by sending them to private schools. Kristina went on to earn a Bachelors' Degree in Business from Sacramento State University. His daughters were his pride and joy.
One of his greatest passions was sports, specifically the San Francisco Giants and the 49ers. He attended as many games as he could and was sure to catch the games on TV if he couldn't attend in person.
His other passion was Harley-Davidson motorcycles. He bought his first motorcycle when he was a teenager. He loved participating in motorcycle runs such as Toys for Tots, Shriners, Poker Runs, and other local opportunities. He enjoyed long rides with friends, and even went cross country on his beloved Harley.
He loved to cook for people. He was quite the Chef! He would cook up a big pot full of chili and scoop it into individual containers and deliver it to his friends. He would also cook up some grand tacos! Feeding his friends was showing them he loved them. Many Thanksgivings he was get up super early and cook a Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner for the Run to Feed the Hungry. Jon was a very loving, caring, and giving person. If he had anything that you needed, he would be the first to give it to you.
