Jon Clinton Chandler, age 30


John Chandler


Jon Chandler, of Kenwood and San Francisco, died amongst oak trees and surrounded by family on March 31 after battling AITL lymphoma.

Jon was born in Santa Rosa on July 22, 1985, to Darien and David Chandler as a twin and the youngest of four sons. Jon was charismatic, intelligent and a true romantic. He was a graduate of Maria Carrillo High School (‘04), CSU Chico (‘09 BA Political Science) and Golden Gate University School of Law (‘14 JD with honors).

Jon was a lawyer working with his dad and eldest brother, an avid skier (National Ski Patrol at 18, Tahoe hot dog) and the consummate companion to those fortunate enough to share his presence. He was warm, thoughtful, adventurous and full of wit in spite of life-threatening challenges throughout his 30 years. Experiences bred Jon into a warrior with the heart of a lion. He overcame obstacles and achieved goals, and always with a smile, kindness, and fine attire. Not once did he waver in loving others and enjoying life to the fullest. Grieving family includes: parents, brothers Rob (fraternal twin), Dave (Leah) and Christian (Paula), nieces Isabella and Anna, nephews Lucas and Jonathan (due Oct. 16), aunt Linda Chandler and cousins Allison Murphy (William), William III and Cassidy Murphy, Jasmin Ford and Jalen Lewis (Ahlee Lewis). A celebration of Jon’s amazing life will be held at the Chandler family home in Kenwood on May 7, from 1 to 4 p.m. Contact darienmcfnp@gmail.com for directions.
