I worked closely with Jon for almost 8 years. He was my editor and technical go-to guru. Jon could crash (ie: meet) a deadline like no one else I've ever worked with. He understood the importance of video to a story, could handle the pressure of an ever changing breaking news environment and always had a smile on his face. Jon never got overwhelmed and was an absolute joy to work with. He understands the need for a smooth symbiotic relationship between the producer and editor and that's how I always felt about our working relationship. We were a smooth crisp team. Our partnership was very collaborative even under the most challenging story conditions. When a deadline was given (whether that deadline was an hour, four hours or all day) Jon would exceed it.He always finished with more than enough time to make changes based on producer notes. He is funny, smart, quick and ultra-talented.
Professional , high quality work... pleasure to work with!
