    My son and I both refereed with Jonathan many times. Everytime I saw him he always had a huge smile on his face. He was always so genuine and happy to say hello. He had a strong presence on and off the basketball court with his quiet demeanour. We were sad and shocked to hear of his passing. He will always hold a special place in our hearts. He exemplified the characteristics of a partner whom always had your back when officiating basketball. A true gentle soul! Our sincerest condolences go out to his family.

    Jonathon refereed Michael’s game just a week or so ago. He always offered wise words to John and Michael, and was infinitely supportive. He and I were laughing and giggling the last time I saw him. I will cherish those moments. We will all miss seeing him. He was a fabulous man. Our love, thoughts, and prayers are with your family. Love, John, Michael, Kent, and Catherine

    Rizza and kids, please accept our deepest and sincere condolences on the passing of a loving husband and devoted father. We were shocked and saddened to learn of his sudden death. We pray that God will fill the void in the family and may his gentle soul rest in perfect peace.

  18. When I first met Jonathon years ago I was amazed by his ability to overcome his physical limitation and my admiration has continued over the years. I recently refereed with him on November 10th which memory will be a lasting one for me. I apologize for not being able to attend the memorial service due to previous events which were unavoidable but I add my voice of condolences to the many which have already by spoken by his many close friends and acquaintances. Rest in peace dear friend.
