on lost one of his best friends last week in a plane wreck that claimed the lives of his friend Scott, Scott's two youngest children and the pilot.  Jon would like to attend the memorial service in Alaska this weekend, however last minute holiday travel is very expensive.  I know many have expressed a desire to do something to help.  Please consider making a small donation to help Jon attend the service this weekend.  Any additional funds raised will go to Scott's wife and children.

Thank you for considering a donation to help Jon thorough this difficult time.

Jon's Facebook post:

I have waited a couple days to post anything about my college buddy and brother in Christ who died (along with his 2 youngest kids) in a tragic plane crash in Alaska. Scott Blom was an amazing friend, son, husband, and father. Our last time together was marked by encouragement from Scott about being a good dad to my kids and husband to Stacy, encouragement in walking with Christ daily and showing His love to my students - "who need Christ in their life". Of course we talked basketball and other sports but Scott never let the conversation get too far from what matters the most - Jesus. 

I remember in 1995 the many stays at Scott's "Taco Bell" house in Ft. Collins when I was visiting Stacy. We would eat "Satch-Fat" and drink Fat tire bombers. I loved those times as much as evenings with Stacy before she had to study. 

I also remember being in his wedding. Troy Warrick, Eric Wardell, LisaSteve Stucky were groomsmen and about to show the love of his life what goof-balls we were. When the pastor asked the best man for the ring we all threw dozens of plastic gold rings on the floor pretending to search for the real one. Julie's parents fortunately saw the good in Scott and didn't judge him by the friends he kept. 

I will miss my friend Scott Blom. I will miss smoking a pipe with him, Sharing the same name for our daughters. Throwing snow balls at him while he is 'on the ring', and so much more. But mostly I will miss the encouraging worlds he always had that challenged me and lifted me up as a man of God. 

Love you Bro.
