Georgetown, MA - Jonathan James Hart died unexpectedly on July 6, 2019, in Kernville, California. He was 39.

Jonathan "Jon" was born on June 25, 1980, and was raised in Georgetown, Mass. His love for the outdoors started early and he spent the majority of his free time exploring and adventuring as an Eagle Scout. He graduated from Georgetown High School in 1998 and subsequently graduated from Northeastern University in 2003. Upon graduation, he lived in the Los Angeles area for nearly a decade until moving to Kernville, Calif., in 2016, to further pursue his love for the outdoors. An avid fly fisherman and local guide, he shared his passion by supporting conservation efforts and mentoring future generations of outdoorsmen. He spent the majority of his free time fly fishing and adventuring along the rivers and lakes of California.

He was loved fiercely by family and friends, both near and far. He will be remembered as a selfless, gentle, kind, and loyal son, brother, uncle, nephew and friend to all who knew and loved him so immensely. His legacy will live on through the community that he touched and the family that he protected and loved.
Family and friends will gather to share memories and celebrate the life he spent generously giving to others. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Jon Hart and Celine Bayla Scholarship Fund by sending donations to Keepers of the Kern, P.O. Box 655, Kernville, CA 93238.

Jonathan I will always remember and cherish our memories made at Green Meadows when we were off at the frog pond trying to see who could catch the biggest frogs. Though it's been years since we have spoken or seen each other because as cousins we grew up and moved away you will always have a special place in my heart. ❤
