from Gabriella Vigliocco

Jon has been a model for me: in his superb intellect, in his passion for research, in his dedication to the field. He has been a wonderful mentor: he was a mentor to me through two promotions, he mentored me when I became a very naive head of department and when I became a parent. For me, he was and will always be the soul of our division. I miss him dearly. My heart is with Nilli and their two boys.
