    Not long ago I found out that Jon had passed away.
    I posted the obituary on another thread but figured that it should be on it's own thread.

    As many old timers remember, Jon made 4 tapes in the mid 1980's about some of the 'behind the scenes' changes in Scn management.
    The first 3 tapes were full of revelations. The 4th tape was a recanting of the first 3.
    It was clear that Scientology had gotten to him somehow.
    There was talk of threats, a payout, harassment, etc..
    All true, except for the payout.

    Recently, I had occasion to talk with Jon's former wife.
    She gave me permission to pass on this information:

    :bigcry: RIP Jon.

    He died in 2008?

    I had the luxury of listening to his 3 tapes shortly after I escaped the cult in 1985. It was extremely helpful and beneficial to finally get answers that made sense in what was going on with the cult and management and extricating my mind from the madness. I think I may have heard the 4th tape but by then I knew the real story and that last tape was simply to appease the cult.
