Jonathan Blessing Obituary, Death – In 2012, he held the position of Executive Director, and during that time, he established a voter turnout operation that was of the highest caliber. In a campaign that was widely considered to be the most contested race in the country that year, Rodney Davis’s election was helped along in part by this operation, which was one of the elements that contributed to his victory. Jon was a beautiful person who, in addition to having a deep affection for his family, cherished the time he could spend with them and looked forward to it.
In your thoughts and prayers, please keep his wife Bridget and their two small children Johnny and Bodhi in his and Bridget’s family. Please remember them in your prayers and keep them in your thoughts. Jonathan Blessing served as a fantastic model for the kind of father or mother that every person should try to be. Johnny and Bodhi, the products of his and Bridget, his wife’s, combined efforts as parents, have turned out to be two of the most wonderful people you could ever want to meet.
Jonathan Blessing, who had previously worked as the Executive Director of the ILGOP, passed away recently, and we are writing to notify you of this sad news. Despite the great sorrow we feel about the situation, we go ahead and do it. It was in large part due to Jon’s support that we were able to accomplish such success in 2010, when we were able to gain four seats in the House of Representatives and a resounding victory in the fight for Mark Kirk’s seat in the United States Senate. In both of these races, we were able to unseat the incumbent.
