Jon was born in McCook Lake, South Dakota to Chuck and Elaine Meyer on August 3, 1962.  He graduated from Jefferson High School and then enrolled at South Dakota State University where he earned an undergraduate degree in Engineering.  Following graduation at SDSU in 1984, he began working for the State of South Dakota in Pierre where he met Kathy Varilek and they were wed in 1986.  Jon and Kathy moved their family, which included two sons, to Omaha, Nebraska in 1990 when Jon accepted a job offer with a local consulting firm.  Jon spent the next 15 years working in the private sector as a Civil Engineer before taking a position with the City of Omaha where he worked until the time of his passing. 

Jon was a dedicated husband and father that loved spending time with his family, especially his four grandchildren.  When not giving piggyback rides to his grandkids, Jon could be found in his fishing boat or working on a project on the family acreage in Gretna.  He always had a smile on his face and was willing to lend a helping hand.  Jon brightened any room he was in and the simple joy with which he lived his life will be deeply missed.
