Dear Jon,

You are without a doubt the most influential person I have met here at Rutgers. You have become my mentor, as well as a parent to me. You are always looking out for me, finding new ways for me to grow and to keep me focused on what I have to do. The summer you reached out to me through e-mail had changed my entire course of how I would perform and develop here at Rutgers. Your advice was always the first I sought out before anyone else’s. I am thankful for your support, kindness, and friendship. A mentor and a parent like you is hard to find, so I will continue to cherish our growing friendship. Thank you for everything. God bless.
