Jon thanked his family, “for their unconditional love and support, especially my mother and father for the extras, including meals after games, and unity dinners before games. I thank my grandparents, aunts and uncles for cheering at so many sporting events. I also thank the CC football staff: Tom Mach, Rick Coratti, Mark Gagnon, Dan Anderson, Roy Dudas, George Kunec, Joe English, Aaron Babicz, Justin Cessante, and Bryant Lawrence for their commitment and dedication. I thank the entire CC family: students, faculty, administration, alumni, and the Basilian Fathers. It was an honor to wear the blue and white.”
