from Luis J Fuentes

Jon was a brilliant young scientist that impacted everyone had the chance of meeting him or reading his stunning scientific contribution. In my office, just in from of me, there is a picture showing all participants in the Attention and Performance Symposium XVIII held at Cumberland Lodge in July 1998. Just in the first row Jon and Nilli are sat happily holding their little baby. I cannot believe that guy is not with us anymore, hard to believe and hard to assume. My deepest condolences for his friends and colleagues. But above all for Nilli and her kids, God how to comfort these people…
