Jon Holloway

August 14, 1975 — January 28, 2022

Jonathon G. Holloway was a man of determination, strength, and will. He was born August 14, 1975 in Flint, Michigan to Rebecca and Jackson Holloway who had no idea what was in store for them. Soon in life, Jon was diagnosed with Werding-Hoffman disease, and his parents were told he would live a very short life. Jon was determined to live a full and prosperous life. He never complained of his disability; his life was full of love, family, and interests that became passions and helped him flourish despite the odds. Jon’s first love from a young age was music; he loved KISS. He is remembered for painting his face and coming home still excited from their concert. His music passion led him to start his own company, J Holloway Productions, in 2016 bringing rap artists to NEA. Jelly Roll, DJ Paul, and Haystack were a few of his favorite acts. He truly loved promoting concerts and getting to know the musicians. Jon loved cards. He loved the thrill of the game, the highs and the lows. He started by playing Black Jack and became an extremely good card player. This evolved into another deep-rooted passion: Poker. He qualified many times to play in the World Series of Poker; he and his devoted mom traveled many miles together so he could play on the Poker circuit. He greatly enjoyed playing locally with his buddies, something he looked forward to weekly. Jon loved all sports! He was a die-hard Michigan fan who had to bleed blue and yellow. This love grew into another business venture which proved to be quite successful: Jon’s Sports Cards and More opened in 1996. His years of being a Memphis Grizzlies season ticket holder were a highlight of his life. He especially liked sitting front row and meeting NBA players and creating friendships with a few of them. He treasured an extensive collection of autographed sports paraphernalia. Above all, Jon loved his family and friends. He was an incredible uncle who adored Cameron, Hiram, and Carmen. He loved his community and the Highland Rebels. He was so thankful for his friends and especially his buddies who joined in yearly in his Fantasy Football League. Jon was a devoted brother to Jaclyn and Jacob, a good brother-in-law, and he loved hard. The bond he had with his mother was like no other. She was his best friend; Rebecca did everything she could to insure he lived his life to the fullest! And that he did. Due to Covid 19, no services will be at this time. We must protect those who are a part of the high-risk community. A Celebration of Life will be planned for the summer. The family respectfully asks that each person reading this lift everyone connected in prayer during their time of deep sorrow. Those of you who loved Jon, thank you. Thank you for making his life full. Thank you for giving him a reason to look forward to tomorrow. May he rest peacefully.
