A Poem
A Story
A Song and a Fanvid
Pictures and memories 
And decades of love
Unreturned
If this is the only way
To keep you
To love you
Like you were in life
Then this is what we do.
Bye and Hi.
We are so glad you are here.
This is our love
In words and in images
You will never die
Because where else can you be
But here in our work?

JON-ERIK HEXUM

"I FEEL IT IS A GREAT FORTUNE TO HAVE SOME PASSION IN LIFE AND AN URGENCY IN DIRECTION; IT MAKES OUR WHOLE BEING SO MUCH FULLER."

"…I HAVE A GENERALLY CONSISTENT ABILITY TO REGARD MYSELF OBJECTIVELY. I HOPE TO BE OPEN, FRIENDLY, CONSIDERATE AND UNPRETENTIOUS."

PEOPLE MAGAZINE

Gone Too Soon

In December 2007, People Magazine released a tribute book to celebrities whose lives were cut too short. Jon-Erik is featured on Page 87, with a beautiful picture and blurb. People magazine ran a few features on Jon-Erik during his blazing career. It's very touching that although he'd died so young and new to Hollywood, he's remembered in this way. I'd like to attribute this recognizance to all the loving, hard work that fans have put in throughout the years to keep his memory alive. It once again made the mainstream media take notice. Yes, Jon-Erik Hexum is gone, but to so many, he's not forgotten!
