I was sitting in from of my TV watching the afternoon newscast when the news came out about Jon's accident. At the time I was being processed for LASPD and I couldn't believe the news because I knew Jon. We worked together at Mrs. Gooch's in Beverly Hills in 1999. I remember Jon as a hard worker, self driven individual. I left the store and went somewhere else, ran into him a couple of times when I visited the store. Next year I am participating in the Police Unity Tour 2017. I have chosen Jon to be the Officer I ride for. My only regret is that I could not tell him in person I became a Police Officer too, but he knows that now. Will never forget.
