I knew Jon from way back - when I left Seafish and joined Sainsbury's at the turn of the Millenium and then moved to Tesco when we started to share many a good brainstorm on how to improve the fish industry through Seafish. Initiatives were Jon's forte and as a large levy payer when I joined Birds Eye - he would always test his ideas with me and we would have robust discussion to put it politely. I respected his forthright approach and honesty and he mine - Jon was never in awe of 'large business' and he was one of the few people I would allow to call me 'Haj'. We shared a joint desire to help the fish industry. My last contact with hm was to put the ASMI story on the Birds Eye sustainability website just a few months ago and was as chirpy as ever. .
I will really miss him - have lost a really good industry colleague and friend.
Sincere Condolences to all the family - Rest in peace Jon.

"You'll not get Jon on that big wheel!" We did: must have been the WINE and Dine. One of the many lovely times we all had together. We'll miss you loads, Jon.

Extract from a poem by Henry Scott Holland
I am I and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other, that we still are.
Speak to me in the easy way which you always used.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
Life means all that it ever meant; it is the same as it ever was.
