We were so saddened last night to learn of the tragic death of one of our former students, Jon Christenson, in Virginia. Jon was always a very nice, respectful, kind young man. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and children, his parents Steve and Darlene, his two sisters Eva and Heidi who were also in our youth group, and their extended family and friends.
Jon Steven Christenson CHESAPEAKE – “G.I.” Jon Steven Christenson, 27, passed away May 18, 2011. Jon was a member of Crossroads Church in Norfolk and One Life Fitness Gym. He loved the Lord Jesus, the outdoors, people, his family, and especially his two sons. Jon was loved and respected by all who knew him, and was a man’s man.

He is survived by his wife, Susan Maureen Christenson; two sons, Owen and Liam Christenson; parents, Steven and Darlene Christenson; twin sisters, Eva Christenson and Heidi Rackley (Jim); maternal grandparents David and Ruth Downey; and his nephew and niece, Logan and Sierra Rackley.
