Jon was also my first "boss." Yep. He hired me when I was 15 at his families McDonald's here in La Palma at Orangethrope and Moody. What a blast we had as "kids" growing my here in our "magical" oasis we also know as the "Eastside of Cerritos!"
|Jon...Forever in our Hearts!|
Born in Cheyenne, Wyoming on July 23, 1956, Jon left us after a battle with cancer on September 23, 2011 surrounded by those who loved him. Jon fought his illness courageously until the angels called him home.
He resided in Cerritos, California since 1967 growing up in and around McDonalds restaurants, where he worked and later became a third generation owner for several years. Jon served on the Board of Directors of the Boys and Girls Club of Buena Park since 1992 and recently became an emeritus board member. Involved in numerous charity benefits over the years, Jon was always the first to give and champion for the disadvantaged. His legacy will carry on through all of the people who knew him.

He is survived by his father, DJ Fosnight; his mother, Shirley Fosnight, his niece, Christina Lindsey; his father, Ken Fosnight; his brother, Steve Fosnight; his stepbrother, Steve McKissick; his stepsister, Laura McKissick and his lifelong friend, Tony Coronel.
