Jon was a headstrong, fearless guy. Witty and bold, and a talented motocross rider. Clever and the ingenious fixer of broken things. He thought he could also fix himself. He shunned any mainstream ideas about rehab. And he did quit using heroin on his own and stayed sober for almost four years. I don't know why the beast came calling again. Jon denied he was in trouble and I know he was desperately trying to free himself again. The day we lost him our world went dark. I miss his hugs and his beautiful face.
