Condolences

  1. Lisa, Micah, and Zoe,

    We are praying for you as we mourn Jon’s passing. He was an incredible man and an exemplary example of who we are called to be as Christians. His deep personal relationship with Jesus Christ our Savior and God the Father coupled with his bold proclamation of the truth for others to come into a saving relationship and faith in our Lord.

    I consider it a distinct privileged and honor to have known Jon as a friend, fellow Christian, and business colleague. He will be greatly missed but we look forward to reuniting with him in heaven one day.

    God Bless,

    Clif, Jennifer, Paige, Chase & Luke

  4. Lisa, Micah, Zoe and the rest of your family, my heartfelt condolences – thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time.

  5. Love this sweet family. He always had a smile and hug for me. Just a heartbreaking loss but heaven gained a true servant. Lisa and children are in my prayers.

    • LaJuan, we appreciate y’all praying for us. Jon and I were so glad to meet you and Bruce when we first came to Central. You helped us celebrate Micah and Zoe’s arrivals, and we’ve appreciated your friendship.

      Hugs,
      Lisa

  6. Lisa and children my heart and prayers are with you! May God cover you with His Holy Spirit and peace like only He can. Much love to you all.

  7. Jon,

    I will truly miss you, man. You were a great friend and a great man of God. I will miss randomly running into you at Lowes. I will forever miss our endless conversations about politics and other random topics.

    You being gone is going to be felt at Central for a long time to come. If more of us were like you we wouldn’t need much outreach.

    Love you buddy, and I guess that rain check on getting lunch will have to wait until I get there where you are. Save a seat for me. And maybe put in a good word with the Lord about getting the Aggies that Natty.

    • Beautiful expression of friendship and love for a truly wonderful guy Tony! It’s amazing how your thoughts on Jon match mine so well. Jon owes me a lunch date too so I’m hoping he’ll save us both a seat at the masters’ table. I describe Jon to folks as everyone’s best friend! He never met an enemy and had the most smooth and easy going personality I’ve ever met! He was also very intelligent since he described me as a very wise man! LOL.

    • Tony, Jon valued your friendship. I have so many fond memories of the times we spent with you and Emily in our small group, and birthday parties and get-togethers at each other’s homes. Thank you for your encouraging and heartfelt words.

      Hugs,
      Lisa

  8. Love and prayers for you Lisa as y’all walk through this time. May the Lord bless and comfort each of you in His special care.

  9. My heart grieves with this sweet family. Jon was a man of many talents and I am thankful our earthly paths crossed. I pray for his precious wife and children and know God’s comforting and loving arms will sustain them in the tough days ahead. My love. Margaret Young

  10. Lisa, we are heartbroken. We are praying ceaselessly for you, the kids, and the family. May The Lord comfort you during this time. Love you, sister.

    • Thank you so much, Julie. We need the prayer covering, and thank you so much for lifting us up.

      Love and hugs,
      Lisa

  11. Jon was one of the most authentic and consistent individuals we have known. His life was tangible evidence of the goodness and power of Jesus. Jon clearly had a peace that surpassed all understanding. He had a joy that was bigger than anything this world has to offer. He had a hope in great things that will certainly come to pass. He loved Jesus with all his heart, with all his mind, with all his soul, and with all his strength. We are better people today because of the example that Jon set for us all. Jon, thank you for pouring your life into our children. Thank you for having courage to stand for Christ. Thank you for living a life worthy of following. Thank you for being our friend. Lisa, Micah and Zoe, we love you and are praying fervently for you.

    • Sarah, Jay, and sweet little ones, thank you for your encouraging and life-giving words. They made me smile as well as tear up. Your heartfelt reflections will continue to serve as an encouragement to Micah, Zoe, and me. Thank you for praying for us.

      Love and hugs,
      Lisa

    • Thank you so much, JoLyn. Jon always enjoyed working with your precious little ones in Sunday school and AWANA. We appreciate you praying for us.

      Hugs,
      Lisa

  12. Que nuestro Señor los acompañe ricamente durante estos días. Acuérdense que los queremos mucho y no están solos. Hemos de extrañar esta sonrisa tan amada pero lo veremos en el cielo. Con todo nuestro corazón hiramos por ustedes.

  13. Precious Lisa,
    So sorry to hear of Jon’s passing. May the Lord comfort you as only He can.
    Love,
    Susan and Tell

  14. Jon became a dear friend when we lived in College Station. His quiet yet powerful faith touched our lives and we were made better for knowing him. His wonderful smile, ability to make anyone feel comfortable and deep well of knowledge made him an absolute joy to be around. Even as tears spring to our eyes at knowing he is no longer here in this earthly home a sense of joy that he is in the presence of our Savior also rises up. Our heart breaks for Lisa and his family. Jon’s light for Christ will continue to shine through them and through all the lives he has impacted over the years. Prayers for this sweet family.

    • Hi Timothy and Michelle, we sure counted it a joy to have met you both when we came to Central. Thank you for your encouraging and heartfelt words; they mean a lot. We love y’all.

      Hugs,
      Lisa

  15. Lisa we are so sad about the passing of Jon and heartbroken for you and the kids. We are praying for strength and endurance and peace for you and Micah and Zoey.

  16. Mrs. Perrott,

    I never knew him, yet he was one of my favorite people. It’s hard to put to words, but your husband’s presence somehow made me feel better. Jon was my son’s and daughter’s Sunday School teacher. He always had that smile, and his genuine hello made me feel at ease. The way he served, the way he carried himself… it made me want to be a better man. I know you understand the extraordinary person he was. I just wanted to share the influence your husband still brings. Thanks for all you have done for others. We are here for you.

    Joshua Rhine

    • Joshua, what beautiful and encouraging words. Jon enjoyed teaching our Sunday school class; it’s a blessing to hear of the impact he had. Thank you for sharing, and thanks so much for praying for us.

      Blessings,
      Lisa

  17. Dear Lisa

    Judy and I send our condolences for the passing of Jon. Take strength in knowing that he has gone to a better place and awaits the rest of us to join him! We know he will be missed. Blessings to you and the children!

    Charlie and Judy

    • Charlie and Judy, I remember when our Juniper Gardens family threw us a wedding shower, and when we drove to Kansas City to introduce you all to baby Micah. We appreciate your encouraging words.

      Hugs from all of us,
      Lisa

  18. Lisa, Micah and Zoe though we’ve known you all and Jon for such a short time; it’s been a blessing and an honor to know this beautiful family. May you continue to find comfort and peace in our Lord as only He can give. Knowing Jon was such a strong man of faith has made all the difference. We are here for each of you.

    • We enjoyed the times we were able to spend with your family. Thank you for your encouraging words, and thanks so much for praying for us.

      Hugs,
      Lisa

  19. Lisa,

    I am grateful that the last time I saw Jon he had a huge smile on his face as we said hello in the hallway. That is a memory I will always treasure. I pray for you daily and am here for you. I send my love to you and the kids.

    • Thank you so much, Sherrie. I appreciate your kind words, and thank you so much for praying for us.

      Hugs,
      Lisa

  20. He always had a smile …. and a genuine spirit. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Lisa, the children and loved ones.

  21. Lisa, Micah & sweet daughter,
    I am so sorry for your loss of dearest Jon. He loved you all so much. My heart is with you as you face a future with wonderful memories of his time here on earth but not his physical presence. Just treasure those memories as we all will, of a dedicated & caring man.
    Much love,
    Judy

    • Dear Judy, thank you so much for your sweet words. Jon enjoyed his work with you at AgriLife, and valued the conversations the two of you had about life and faith. We truly are thankful for many wonderful memories, including the baby shower you hosted for us, as well as celebrating Boxing Day with you and Peter.

      Hugs from Micah, Zoe and me,
      Lisa

  22. We are deeply sorry to know of Jon’s passing. We are thinking of you constantly, Lisa, Micah, and Zoe. We will never forget how beautifully he kept your yard. Even though that is superficial, we feel it was a reflection of the beauty of Jon’s soul.

  23. Lisa, Micah, & Zoe, we were very shocked & sorry to hear about Jon’s sudden passing. We are praying for y’all constantly!!! Know this is not goodbye, just a see you later. Jon loved Jesus with everything in him. It was felt by all who know him. He is greatly missed!! Love y’all!

  24. Jon was one of the most loving and caring men I know who clearly lived a life striving for God’s righteousness. He leaves a void in each of our hearts. Prayers and support for Lisa, Micah, and Zoey. He will always live in theirs and our hearts.

  25. What a kind soul he was. I worked in an affiliated area of AgriLife and often passed him coming and going in the parking lot or buildings on campus. He loved his family and was dedicated to his profession. I’m sad for your loss – too soon – of this great man.

  26. Our hearts are at loss here, but because of Jesus, Jon is at forever peace. Lisa and family, we pray for you and God’s strength to carry you now.

  27. Dear Perrot Family,
    Please accept my deepest condolences of your recent loss. Mr. Perrot was an intelligent and accomplished man. My prayers for your family.

    Sincerely,
    Mary Masterson

  28. Jon has always been the most gentle and kind person. He loved to talk about his wife and children and show pictures. He always encouraged me in the Lord and asked how I was doing, he really was genuinely interested in my life and family. I know he is in the Lord’s heavenly place, still encouraging and teaching as he was made to do. My heart is sad for you and his family, I will keep you guys in my prayers. I pray for a “grace bubble” to cover you in this season, helping you be strong in your weakness.

  29. Lisa,

    Your beloved husband will sincerely be missed but never forgotten! It was truly a pleasure having the opportunity to know him within our agency. It was always great talking to him about our Lord and Savior. His faith and belief showed every single time he smiled. May you and your family be comforted by the “Supreme Comforter”. WE will be lifting your family up in prayers during this time. May you and your loved ones be constantly surrounded by His LOVE, HIS PRESENCE and HIS PEACE.

    Sincerely,

    We are so deeply saddened to learn about Jon. He was such a kind and caring man who’s love for his family showed immensely. Every time he came in to the office he was smiling and so kind.

Gods plan is bigger than we can imagine. Our prayers and love are so deep for your family.

  33. Lisa, Micah, and Zoe, I was so sad to hear of Jon’s passing and I am deeply sorry for your loss. We are praying for God’s peace, comfort, and strength for your family. Jon was one of a kind; a great friend, and a kind and humble man. He encouraged me so much in my faith and we had many great conversations about scripture. He looked for the best in people, and loved his family so very much. It was an honor and blessing to know and work with Jon. He will be sorely missed until we see him again.

  34. Dearest Lisa and children,
    Jon was family to me and to Rob and so are you. We are here for you now and in the future. Let me, us, know if there is anything we can do to comfort in any way.
    He will be sorely missed, he was a source of love, honor and faith to many. He always walked with strength of character, belief first. He will remain alive through you and in our memories. We grieve with you.
    With love, Rob and Patricia Wolcott

  35. I also knew Jon through AgriLife Extension where we worked. He always had a smile and quiet demeanor. He was so gifted with many talents. He will be missed. May Our Lord hold you and your family in His loving arms and give you peace.
    God bless you!

  36. Dearest Lisa, Micah and Zoe,
    We are so glad that we had the opportunity to meet Jon in Kansas City when Micah was just a baby and then to see all of you in College Station two years ago. What a special man, which makes the loss so great!
    You are in our thoughts and prayers as you honor and celebrate his life this weekend.
    We love you.

    Jan, Selam and Tsige OBrien

  37. It is with deep sadness and profound respect that I send my thoughts to you Lisa and Zoe and Micah. Jon was a quiet gentle man spreading goodness, kindness and God’s love in a turbulent world. Just as Moses off the mountain, he exuded a spirit that spoke to the world of his relationship with God. And in his path everyone who knew him respected him. He was a man of honor and that is a rare quality. His life was a legacy of integrity and we have been blessed to have known him as friend. Please accept our deep sympathy and homage for your beloved. Judy and Bryan Wood

  38. Aunt Lisa, Micah and Zoe,

  40. May the Lord wrap his arms around the entire family durning your time of loss

    Jon was a great God fearing man
    Who would spread the word by his actions

    I’m certain he’s in Heaven looking down on us bringing blessing in this difficult time

  41. To Lisa, Micah and Zoe and to Brian, Curtis and Rennie and your families, I’m so sorry about Adrian. I’m still trying to figure out how that could have happened. With the loss of Amber, and Clarence being on life support right now, I know how bad it feels to lose a sibling and I can’t imagine how you are feeling Lisa, or the children. I will say feel what you feel without apologies, that’s the only way to start the healing process from this hurt. God has to comfort you, because no matter what people say it can’t always touch the place where only God can go. Jesus said,”Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted.” I am praying for you all. Love you all, your cousin Annie

  42. Lisa and the kids It sincerely breaks my heart to know that my cousin is no longer here in the land of the living I will continue to pray for you and the kids and that the lord give u and the kids PEACE within. Looking at this video brought tears to my eyes and sadness to my heart. Try your hardest to b strong but if u can’t then it’s alright grieve as you may ..love u

  43. Hi Lisa this is Jon’s Auntie Elouise and I want to give my condolences were praying for you and the kids, God is going to take care of you all, be strong for the kids they need u more than ever and just know that God is with u and will never ever leave u.

  44. Lisa,
    I was privileged to know Jon and serve with him as a deacon as well as with him on the pastor search nominating committee. I was looking forward to Jon’s leadership of our deacon body before the Lord called him home.
    I can’t begin to imagine the loss for you and your kids. Anyone who knew Jon at all has no doubt as to his home now. But the loss for those of us on this side of heaven is real.
    Praying for you and your family. Ready to serve in any way I can as I’m one of a couple of deacons who’ve been asked to try to fill some incredibly big shoes Jon left behind in our deacon leadership.

  46. To Lisa and the Perrott family
    It was my honor to know and befriend Jon as a young man at the Housing Authority of Alameda County. Jon was a man of high standards, honesty, and integrity. Our friendship was sweet, and we were respectful of each other’s beliefs. Jon will be greatly missed.
    Our sincerest condolences.

  47. I am so sorry to hear about Jon’s passing. I did not know until I saw the Silver Taps notice today. Jon was always so kind to me and it was a pleasure to work with him when he worked with AgriLife Extension. Please accept my prayers for your family.

    With love,
