    You may remember us as we are Lauren Kinnan’s grandparents. She came to us right after Jon’s accident and we could hardly believe what she was telling us. We are very very sorry for your loss! Please know that all of you have been lifted up in prayer daily asking God to wrap His loving arms around you. May you feel His love, comfort, and strength during this difficult time and in the days ahead.

    Jon was a great man! His conversation(s) with the Hampton Hawk team during our construction project were always professional. What made Jon great was that we got to know him so well as he had a great way of mixing professional and personal conversation. Thanks Jon! Blessings to his family and friends.

    For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:17-18

    I am ashamed to say, I had no idea Jon had passed, I am so sorry for your loss. Clarkson’s new addition as many other buildings stand in Monument to Jon, as a professional and a man. I really enjoyed our talks AND relationship. He always made an attempt to stop and visit when he was my area and we shared stories about our rural western Nebraska roots. He was a great man, and will be missed.
