Even as a child, Jonathan was an amazing mind that blessed our lives. Throughout his childhood, he would grace us with his creativity and curiosity. He would come up with "science projects" made from whatever he could find and took apart any type of electronic device he could just to see if he could put it back together in working order. It was in his younger years that he came to have such a great love for animals. From his birds to his dog, he was very compassionate and caring for them. Throughout growing up, Jonathan could see the beauty of nature in everyday life. He captured amazing moments in his pictures. Jonathan inspired his world by his words, creativity, intelligence, and compassion. The world was blessed to be graced by such a greatly amazing mind. He has touched the lives of many friends and family. He will be forever in our hearts.
