I’m a friend of Jon Santarelli, the MOB on TP52 Imedi. He has still not been found and the search was turned into a recovery on Sunday, the 23rd. Jon spoke often of the sailing community so I am reaching out in hopes to garner as much attention as possible.
We have set up a memorial fund that can be found at the link below. For the Chicago locals we are also setting up memorial night at Jon’s favorite bar in Lincoln Park. If you want to give – that’s incredible and we appreciate it, and if you don’t all I ask is that you take 38 seconds to read the page and spread it around. Jon was an incredible person and will be missed by many.
