Born May 6, 1992 to David and Doris MacDonald in Norfolk, VA; Jon grew up in Scottsbluff, NE where he fell in love with medicine and rock climbing. Jon earned an Associate’s Degree in Outdoor Leadership and Education from Central Wyoming College in Riverton, WY which only heightened his passion as a first responder. He was prepared to start his final year of nursing school with a speech for the incoming class: “How to survive your first year of nursing school.”
Jon was passionate about emergency medicine, actively participating as a member of Fremont and Sublette EMS and Search and Rescue. His current occupation was in the Medical Surgical unit at Sage West hospital in Lander as a CNA. His ultimate dream of becoming a doctor, would allow him to save lives in the emergency room and eventually work with Doctors Without Borders.
His love for the outdoors and climbing gave him the dream to one day climb Everest, but most times he could be found climbing at Vedawoo and Sinks Canyon, WY, two of his favorite spots to climb.
Jon shared his passions with his 20 month old daughter, Sappho Obsidian, and was happiest taking her hiking to some of his favorite places and was looking forward to teaching Sappho and his unborn child to swim, camp and rock climb.
Jonathan is survived by his wife Wendy, daughter Sappho, and a baby due in February 2016. Jon will also be missed by his parents David and Doris MacDonald and his brother and sister, Zach and Elizabeth MacDonald as well as a close community of friends and family who already miss him dearly.
