Jonathan N Cooksey of The Villages, FL passed away on February 12, 2022 at the age of 76.  Born in Pasadena, CA, he was the son of Norton and Margaret Cooksey.  Jonathan was blessed to have his wife, Susan Cooksey, by his side for 21 wonderful years of marriage.

Jon was retired from GE, having spent 13 years as a Security Leader and Master Black Belt with the GE Retail Bank and several years working in Aviation.  In retirement, he founded and served as President of Savvy Internet Security, a private investigation firm.

He loved the Lord dearly and was active at Northside Christian Church.  His Faith, Family, Dogs and Career were the pride and joy of Jon’s life and he loved building relationships.  If you were blessed to have met Jon, you knew in your heart he genuinely cared about you.

    I was thinking about you Jonathan and wanted to donate to your causes. I see Judd was also thinking about you yesterday. And your celebration of life is today. Those aren't coincidences. I miss hearing from you and wish you had had more time, but I know you are in amazing peace and love and light right now. Thank you for being my friend.
