We recently lost a good friend to the Westfield community who over his years here contributed in many ways to various organizations. The Westfield Development Corporation Board and members wanted to ensure that his contribution to our organization was recognized. Jon was a quiet man but worked in many instances behind the scenes, and volunteered his time and expertise to our organization; he was a board member for more than 20 years and treasurer for most of that time.
I have written on a number of occasions about the assets we have in Westfield that in a way differentiates us from many other small communities and believe that our human capital, and our culture of volunteerism in our community, ranks top of the list. Jon was as good an example as you can get of that spirit. He will be missed.
