The college is sad to report the death in Chicago on January 22 of Jon Shotola DS’97 at the age of 35. After finishing the program at Deep Springs, Jon had completed his BA in Cognitive Science at Brown University, then became a private pilot and flight instructor.
Jon’s classmates at Deep Springs remember him as a spirited debater and a brilliant, kind, hilarious, and generous friend, one who especially treasured public speaking, cooking, and hiking. One of Jon’s classmates put it well: Jon is deeply missed by me and so many others. I will always cherish the time we spent together.
