Bill, Lora, Chad and Leslie – How sad we are for you at Jonathan’s passing. There simply are no words to express what we feel. While we did not know Jonathan as a young man, the memories of all those growing up years over a lot of holidays in Ohio and WVA will remain with us to sustain us, and we hope you, at this sad time. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you and you will be part of our daily prayers in the days to come. We love you. Anne and Frank, Scott and Matt

Chad, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Please know that I am here for any support you need. As I told your father, I am refraining from calling, as I want to give you the much needed space to heal. Any words I could offer right now would be inadequate in expressing my condolences. There are none that I can utter to help ease your pain. However, know that I am here, and do not hesitate to call on me if there is anything I can do for you or your family. God bless.

Dear Lorenzi family

I was shocked and saddened by the news. I went to elementary school with him at Ely. We just got back in touch about a year ago and i was looking forward to him moving back to Ohio. I was known as the little girl who chased him at recess and that is how he remembered me. I dont think i will ever meet another guy like Jon. Ill be praying for your family.

Jon we truely miss you and you will always have that place in my heart. I love and miss you kido.

Dear Lorenzi family,

I was a very close friend of Jon’s and a good friend of Chad’s.I’ve known Jon sence middle school and 9th grade and this year we have had classes together.Jon knew how to make anyone laugh no matter how upset someone was.I knew i could talk to him about anything and even though his body and mind is no longer with us, his spirit will forever live on in each and everyone of us.I will never forget the days im in biology and think back to all the jokes jon made whenever i said something.I give you my prayers.

Thank you,

Dear Lorenzi-Fischer family,

I am writing to extend my deepest condolences to you and to let you know how very sad I am to hear about Jon. He was such a wonderful guy. I had the honor and the pleasure to know Jonathan and was very sorry to hear about his passing away. This tragedy was a shock to all of us and memories of him will always be with me. I met Jon and was friends with him in the 8th grade at Landstown Middle. He had a remarkable sense of humor and had a gift of always making people laugh. Talks we shared made me a better person and I pray that he knew that. One of my many fond memories was our âÄúmusic warsâÄù we would have on the phone. We both liked different music and when we were least expecting it one of us would put the phone by the speaker and blast the music. We would always laugh afterwards and say how bad the music was. But the one memory I hold closest to my heart is his smile. He will be deeply missed. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. I share in your grief and send my love.

Dear Lorenzi-Fisher Family,

There are no words that can possibly express how sorry we were to hear about Jonathan. He was such a sweet young man and I’ll always remember him as that shy little boy that Donna use to bring with her to my Sunday School class when he was visiting us up here in Ohio. My daughter Hannah enjoyed spending time with Leslie when she came up and I know Hannah would love to be there to give Leslie a hug in person. I pray that God will give you His peace that passes all understanding because I can’t imagine being able to get through this any other way. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Sincerely,

Linda and Mark Winfree

I just met Jonathan this year. He was a wonderful part of me and my friends lives. He was a great person and we will always love and miss him. It is a shame he had to go so early in his life. He was a huge part of my best friend’s life and i will always love him for that.

I just wanted to let you know how special Jonathan was to my son Ryan. They were in a few classes together and played video games together. Ryan thought he was a great kid and great friend and he already misses him. We were at the funeral tonight and it’s the first time I’ve seen my big 6 foot 2″, 17 year old son cry in years. As a parent and a sibling, I can only imagine the loss you all must feel for your sweet son. It’s something no one should have to go through.I will remember your family in prayer in the hard days ahead and please know that Ryan will never forget his friend.

I went to school with John and though I did not know him well, it is still a great lose. I can’t imagine what its like for those close to him. I am truly sorry that I did not get to know him better. You always put things off and say that you’ll do it tomorrow and then you soon run out of time. I can’t change the past and get to know him better. John we will miss.

We were so shocked and saddened by Jonathan’s tragic passing. We remember him and Leslie from Junior worship at Elyria Baptist Church and what a joy they were to everyone! Leslie and our daughter Alexa started spending time together shortly before they left here to go back home. Our kids are the same ages and we just can’t imagine what you are going through. Please know that we will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry for your loss. Jon was a good friend of mine. I only knew him from my Lunch bell in school this year, but it was well worth knowing him. Whenever he would walk in he would have a nice big smile on his face and would help bring joy into everyones hearts. Many are hurt by this tragic event, family and friends, and I doubt that any of us will be able to completely recover from the loss of such a wonderful person.

I would like to express my sorrow over your loss. I am a teacher at Landstown High School and Jonathan was a student of mine last year. I enjoyed his sense of humor and his smile. I remember him enjoying our study of rocks and astronomy. When he was interested in the material he had very good questions which he did for at least these two areas. I am sorry for your loss. My prayer are with you and your family.

To the Lorenzi-Fischer Family-

While I was not a close friend of Jon’s, the news did come unexpectedly and shocked me very much. I remember seeing him throughout school and thinking he had the brightest and nicest smile ever. He seemed like a good guy, and I know he is in a good place right now, watching over all of us. I know it is extremely hard to endure such pain, but you guys have to remember to be strong. Do it for Jon and all of his friends. We all need to be strong in this time of tragedy. My respects to the family, and always know that he remains in the hearts of my many.

Rest In Peace Jon! We’ll miss you very much!!

Im his younger sister .. I met him a couple of times before he passed. I was really young but somehow I always felt really connected with him. I think of him everyday and wonder what my life would be like if he was here. Since im older now I like to imagine us hanging out and getting to know each other. I know he really liked to skate and that he was an eagles fan . He had a smile that radiated and the clearest memory I have of being with him was when I was probably 4 or 5. He was hugging me and playing with me and that memory will never ever fade. He will always be my big brother and he will never be forgotten . JKL .
