Jonathan Romero, passed away on Wednesday, June 17, 2020 following a brain arteriovenous malformation (AVM) that suddenly burst causing a massive hemorrhagic stroke. Jonathan was born in Tacoma, Washington and grew up in Northern Virginia. He graduated from Cornell University in 1999 where he was an active member of Beta Theta Pi. Jonathan worked as a government IT consultant at TISTA Science & Technology Corporation. He was 43 years old. Jon was the rock and super hero to his wife and to his young sons, ages nine and seven. He was an avid sports enthusiast, especially for the Washington Redskins, Capitals and Nationals. He particularly enjoyed coaching and cheering for all of his sons’ various sporting activities. Jon will be remembered for his empathy, intelligence, humor, and generosity with his time and love. Jon had an unimaginable way to connect with others, to make people feel heard, to laugh with them in good times and hold them through hard times. He was the ultimate giver whose smile would light up any room; he understood the importance of slowing down to appreciate life’s beauty and to advocate for the underserved and mistreated. At work, Jon was also a great leader, magnificent problem solver, and one who gave of himself to those around him. Jon is survived by his wife and best friend, Erin, and his two young sons, Kellen and Evan; his mother, Linda, father, Tom, and his twin sister, Jennifer; his in-laws, Agnes and Dale; his brothers-in-laws, Dale and Ben; his sisters-in-laws, Mary, Alison and Katy; his nieces and nephews, Andrew, Cate, Trey, Jacob, Hannah, and Charlotte, and his many loving aunts, uncles and cousins. He was a beloved husband, father, son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, friend, coach and co-worker. Jon will forever live in the hearts and minds of his family and friends. In lieu of flowers, Jon’s family suggests a donation to the University of Maryland’s Neurocritical Care Fund in his honor: ( click Donate Now ) or A GoFund me site was also set-up to help the family defray the children’s educational and childcare costs:

Services and Interment will be held privately. A Celebration of Jonathan’s life is being planned for a later date.

What a wonderful young man, Jonathan. His smile truly was ever present and welcoming. He was God's gift to his family and friends. It was too soon to lose him but his gifts to others will carry on in the lessons he shared. My condolences to all that he touched.
