Dearest Jon, you have been a friend of our son Chris (Teddy Bear) for years. You are the reason we still have Chris. When the ground around the water line trench began to cave in on Chris- You pulled him out! You are our hero and always will be. Phil always enjoyed visiting with you at Walmart. You will be missed.
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.

Nancy and Sue, my heart aches for you all at the news of Jon's passing. He truly was a "gentle giant" and so very kind to all he met. In high school he helped me one Friday night when my car broke down on the Elm street railroad tracks and I will forever be grateful for that. His quick response to my urgent need could have ended much worse if it hadn't been for his strength and level headed thinking. You will be missed by many Jon and I pray that your family can cherish the wonderful memories you have to help you through this very difficult time. Rest in peace dear friend!

I met Jon in the fall of 1991 when I bought an upright Baby Grand piano. My brother-in-law asked Jon to help move the piano to my 3rd floor apartment! What a kind, generous man! I enjoyed meeting Jon and Susie at that time. Jon was quiet, but funny. I appreciated his willingness to help. Whenever I hear the phrase "gentle giant," I think of Jon Selim. May God comfort his family with peace and special memories. [I had no idea when teaching Ashley W. that she was Jon's niece...wish I would have known...I would have shared my experience then.]

I work with Jon at Wal-Mart. We worked together over in the grocery department. Jon was our pop and water man. That was what he did everyday he worked. Along with helping unload the trucks. A group of us would go out after work on Friday's and have fun. Jon loved Bob Seger. He would play his songs at the Legion. I remember we did a charity bowling team one year and he had this cool budweiser bowling ball. Jon would dress up and play Santa at Wal-Mart the years he worked there. Jon would always come down to Diagonal for the tractor pulls each year..and he would always find you and talk with you, even if you hadn't seen him in some time. Rest easy my friend.
