  1. I met Jon as a freshman in high school. We were both rebellious teenagers and immediately were drawn to each other. So many wonderful memories that I will cherish for the rest of my life. We got into so much trouble, ditching school, smoking cigarettes behind the school, but man he would make me laugh!!!! His sense of humor was contagious. Not everyone understood his sarcasm, but I understood it. Many times snorting from laughter. His love for music ran through his veins. Watching him play the guitar was magical. I am so lucky to have known him on a deeper level. He truly was one of a kind and will be deeply missed.
    My sincerest condolences to the Albrecht family. Eric, you two could have been twins. Such an amazing brotherhood that I hope my own children will have as they get older. You two- your bond is unbreakable and he will forever live on through you. Gayla and Donald, I hope you can find peace and prayers to you all.
    Much love,

  2. Jon was a very good friend of mine. We have been friends since high school, and Eric and I were friends even longer than that. Jon was an amazing guy with an unbelievable talent playing the guitar. I will always have fond memories of the times we hung out together. My deepest sympathies go out to Eric and the Albrecht family. I am deeply saddened by his loss and I will never forget him.

  3. Jon’s musical talent was awesome, and he had a sense of humor that was hilarious. I got to laugh with him only a few times, still tickles my gut thinking about it. He would always tune my guitar and play a few riffs while visiting. Never talked negative about anyone, just living his life to the best he could. Such a sweetheart, we will seriously miss him. RIP Jon, hugs!

  4. Jonathan was one of my best friends in Elementary school. I remember us playing in the backyard, the treehouse, in his room full of music posters and that huge aquarium he had in the family room. We use to get into trouble like boys do. One time Jonathan and I dug a big hole in the backyard and put leaves over it and we convinced Eric to walk over it… but it didn’t work, haha. Gayla was always so kind to me. I have lots of good memories of him and his family. It saddens me to learn of his passing. We were great childhood friends. His memory will stay with me always.
