Perfect 1st episode, Jon!!

I’m a fan of yours from The Jam TV Show and really loved what I heard. The true humanity in the man who gives so much to/for those truly in need...He is an angel here on Earth. Thanks for exposing me to his life story so far. I hope there’s going to be follow up episodes. ☮️❤️🤙🏻🏳️‍🌈
