Remembering Jon

In honor of my nephew, Jon, this a repeat of a post from March 15, 2010. We think of you every day.

It's a sad day in the Appraiser Active family. My nephew, Jonathan Porto, a Marine, was killed yesterday in a non-combat accident in Afghanistan, near Marjah. My sister, Rachel, his mother, Jon's wife, Rachel Jewell Porto, and their two month old daughter, Ariana, could use your prayers. Jon was 26.




The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office provided an escort for the motorcade from MacDill Air Force Base to St. Petersburg. The Tampa Bay Community showed their respect for Cpl Jonathan Porto.



Barbara Guzzon had produced the first segment of a tribute video.
