His son, Jon's childhood, was filled with activities with the scouts. Which explains his love of the outdoors. He enjoyed camping and gardening. His garden was filled with tomatoes, corn, and peppers. He continued his love of the outdoors with his fiance, Kimberly, as they often visited Litchfield by the Sea. He and his daughter shared their love of animals which led Kendra to her career as a veterinarian technician and shelter manager at Good Mews Animal Foundation.

He and his colleagues developed a strong friendship as they worked toward the betterment of the children they served.
