Steph, Treyton, & all mourning this loss,

Jonathan will forever be loved and missed. His legacy will live on in those who love him including his XPRESS baseball family. We have a unique group which is just as close if not closer than some of our own families and much of that bond started thanks to Jonathan! Our entire family is mourning this loss. Brystal will always be his "Dolphins fan daughter," Treydon one of the baseball sons, a best friend to Tommy, Amber will always be his "Boo."  We love you all so much and are here for you!
