Jonathan was a great, loveable 18 year old kid. He loved to skateboard, the Tennessee Titans and his 1972 Chevy Monte Carlo (in which he died). Jonathan’s favorite sayings were, “Stay true” and “Keep your head up.” Both sayings describe Jonathan to a “T” (which he had tattooed on his inner left arm).

Jonathan chose to be a donor on his own. Jonathan was a great person and we miss him more every day.
