TRUE GRIT! October 30 1978 – August 15, 2019 “OUR SHINING STAR”
Jonathan was taken from this earth, doing something he loved…RIDE HIS HARLEY.
Jonathan arose each day with a smile, and the first words out of his mouth were “Big Day Today”. He had a way of making just any ordinary day into an adventure. He loved life and he lived it to the fullest. Jonathan lite up a room with his big smile. His sense of humor and his stories had everyone captivated. He had a presence bigger than life. He was a man of great courage, powerful convictions, and true sincerity. He was a compassionate man that could be counted on. He always had your back in his loyal character and impacted and encouraged many in his walk. If you had Jonathan’s heart, it was for life. He was the kindest, heart full man you could ever have the honor of calling ” my ” friend. He was a man of great passion and did everything with great vigor. He never gave up on his dreams, even with some major setbacks in life. “Forgetting what lay behind, reaching forward to what lie ahead, I press on!” That was our Jonathan. Internal fortitude that was so admirable. He was such an honorable man, and the words he spoke were truth. He loved his family furiously. There was never a family event that he would miss, and if there was not one going on, he would be sure to arrange a celebration of some kind. He was the light and the life of any celebration. He had so much to share and always had a nugget of wisdom for someone. He encouraged and lifted up many people on his journey of life. His brothers David & Joseph meant the world to him. I am sure I can state that everyone loved Jonathan. He had a charisma and energy that could not go unnoticed. And his heart was so big and full of love for those that cared for him. He is deeply missed and honored, by his mother Diane Stasiuk, his two brother’s David and Joseph Stasiuk , and his nephew Benjamin Stasiuk, and niece Iyla Stasiuk. Also his Uncle Brad and Auntie Trish…and his Nana and all of his cousins – and missed by all of his many close friends. We will forever honor your beautiful legacy my son (and my friend) …your passion lives on forever in our hearts. We love you and we will embrace again one day soon….. in paradise my beautiful boy!!!
“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain. ..for the old order has passed away”
