Around this time last year I was panicking about an upcoming interview and emailed Jon to ask for interview advice. I was overwhelmed to receive a 7 paragraph email (sent at Midnight on a Thursday!) which comprised a step-by-step guide to the interview process: from first impressions through to what to do if you are ‘digging yourself into a hole’. I didn’t really know Jon and had never worked with him, he had nothing to gain from this, it was just a pure act of kindness - for which I am extremely grateful.  May he rest in peace.
