Life Story / Obituary


Our beloved son was "set free" and is in the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He was a man of faith and loved God's Word. Jonathan overcame many challenges and obstacles in his life. He graduated from Abilene Christian University in 2014. He was a dreamer, full of life, loved people and conversation, had a fierce entrepreneurial spirit, and "could sell ice to an Eskimo." Survived by his parents David and Mary Sper, siblings Jarred (Sara), Sarah (Andrew), Stephen, grandmother Joyce Sper, along with several nieces and a nephew. A memorial service will be held at Ada Bible Church, 3869 Knapp St NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49525, Saturday, January 28th, at 11am. Visitation will be at 10am. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the National Alliance on Mental Illness at http://ifundraise.nami.org/campaign/sper
