A shining star left our earthly days, Jonathan Mark Woffenden succumbed to a long and painful struggle with alcoholism on August 12, 2021. Jon grew up in northern Idaho surrounded by loving family and friends. He spent wonderful years at Post Falls High School and developed lifelong friendships. He earned a bachelor’s degree in software engineering at UI and was appreciated by many at our own White House Grill before embarking on his career as a software engineer. Jon was loved by everyone who knew him for his genius and incredible sense of humor. Jon’s strongest inner motivation was always a desire to help others; from lawyers over the phone to IT staff to fast food service workers. Her favorite thing was to make someone laugh or get through a tough day.
He is survived by his father: David S. Woffenden, his mother Julie Koep and his brother Andrew Woffenden.
