  7. Jon loves his bacon, a couple weeks ago I was on the phone with him and he was cooking some bacon telling me he couldnΓÇÖt wait to eat it, while we were talking the bacon started burning, he said the whole house was getting smoked out and he was like oh no my poor bacon, he didnΓÇÖt care he ate ever piece, I only share this because he would always talk about bacon, so every time I have bacon for now on I will always think of Jon

Hoping that the great love that united you will give you the strenght to go through this difficult moment.With pur greatest sympathyMonica and David

  9. I met Jonathan many years ago when Matthew brought him to my house in Smithtown. I had offered to watch ΓÇÿBugsyΓÇÖΓÇÖ while the family vacationed in Mexico. I remember a sweet, affectionate little boy snuggling on the sofa with his father. Though it was so very many years ago, I never forgot the deep love I saw that day between a little boy & his loving father. My deepest sympathies are with Matthew & Barbara for the loss of a very special son. May loving memories, family & friends comfort you . Harriet Abrams

  10. Matthew and Barbra, we are missing Jonathan along with you. With heartfelt sympathy, Sandro Tolaj

  11. Jon was my first middle school crush and first childhood ‘boyfriend.’ We never ceased contact after we met, and had oddly similar situations in recent years living within blocks of each other in Astoria in family homes, working within blocks of each other downtown, and sometimes serendipitously riding into work together. I loved Jon very much, and always. He made sure to check in on me here and there and always made me laugh. Growing up, we were each other’s solace a lot of the time when we felt like outcasts, relating to each other about video games and music–and both being chubby kids who were picked on. I’ll always appreciate him for standing up for me then and being there for me now. I could always count on him–even when I hadn’t seen him in person in years, he supported me through a really tough time in my life and I couldn’t thank him more for that. My most sincerest condolences; I cannot imagine the pain you are experiencing right now. Your son was so dearly loved by the Smithtown ’09 class, and it hurts us all to lose him ten years later. He lit up every room he was in, always making sure to make everyone comfortable and give them a laugh. He was an incredible person and I’m sure I speak to all of us when I say: thank you for giving that to the world. Truly, with all my love,Deena Lettas

  12. I didn’t know Jon well but we graduated together from Smithtown East in 2009. Jon always smiled at me in the halls and seemed shy but would often say hello, as we had a bunch of mutual friends. He always watched out for and took care of our friends. That was something I always admired. My deepest condolences to the entire Bonfitto family. Jon will be forever missed.

  13. We were just heartbroken to hear of the loss of Jon. We had so much fun with him at both our children’s weddings last year. I will always remember his smile, his laugh, and many of the dear things he said at the weddings. Please know how much he was loved by my husband and I and all our children. – Karen Lewis Jackson & Steve Jackson

  14. I send my deepest sympathy and condolences during this hard time! I didnΓÇÖt know Jon to well just through classes and school. He seemed like a very generous and sweet guy always made someone laugh! IΓÇÖm so sorry for your loss! Rest In Peace!

  15. I am so sorry for your loss. I didnΓÇÖt know Jon that well I think I might have had a class together with him over the years. He was always so nice and always had a smile on. He was a great guy. Rest In Peace Jon

  16. Jon was my close friend from 7th grade through most of high school. He always made me laugh, even when I was having the worst day. In 8th grade, I told him I had a crush on my current boyfriend and if he didn’t threaten to tell him in front of me, we probably would have never ended up dating. He would make me laugh the entire class every day in 8th grade science. He used to burst out in song, reciting ‘Trapped in a Closet’ by R. Kelly at random times and I would always be hysterical. His jokes and caring nature are something I will never forget. I am deeply saddened by his loss. He’s definitely someone I will never forget. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones. xoxo
