from Sara Hall

It is with great sadness that I learned of Jon's untimely death. I first met Jon when we were both undergraduates at the Queen's College Oxford exactly 30 years ago. He was very handsome and charming and we all fell for him, each in our own way. Definitely one of the "in crowd" in a very special way. None of us knew of the bright futures ahead of us then but Jon certainly had the spark of someone special.  I am happy to read on this site how much happiness and inspiration he has brought to the lives of others privileged enough to have known him too.
