Words can’t express how devastated I was this morning when I opened my email and saw a message with the following title: “Jon Gierlich has passed away.” He was so influential on my thought processes as a designer and as an artist. I feel lucky to have known him and to have been able to have him as my professor for all but one semester at Cornish. After the end of yet another superbusy day at work, I had to come home and have a good cry.
I’ll miss you Jon.
