Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Jonathan K. Ho, born on November 18, 1988, in Rochester, NY, embraced the world with his vibrant spirit until he departed on January 4, 2024. A graduate of Webster Thomas High School and the University at Buffalo, Jonathan’s journey was marked by an enduring love for life, his family, and his beloved dog, Toby. Jonathan is survived by his mother, sister, brother, nieces and nephews.
To know Jonathan was to love him, and this sentiment echoed throughout the lives of those fortunate enough to call him a friend, son, brother, and uncle. Despite facing numerous struggles, Jonathan approached life with a resilient and courageous heart, leaving an indelible impact on the people who surrounded him. Jonathan battled with substance use and mental illness for years. In the end, his disease ended his life much too soon.
There are far too many lives lost every day. If there is someone in your life battling addiction or mental illness, reach out to them. The stigma of embarrassment and denial must be overcome. To anyone suffering from substance use disorder, there are people who love you no matter what you do. Don’t be afraid or ashamed to ask for help. To all parents, pay attention to your children and the world that revolves around them. Even when the surface is calm, the water may be turbulent just beneath. Jonathan’s struggle has ended. He is finally at peace.
In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that donations be made to Muttville.org, a senior dog rescue, or Shatterproof, an organization dedicated to supporting those affected by substance use disorder. https://www.shatterproof.org/37801/in-lieu-of-flowers/jonathan-ho
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
