I want to share the sad news of Jonathan’s passing, which was last Monday.

Many of you may remember him as a ‘fiesty’ character, which was true of him in real life as well.

Sadly Jonathan had been battling against cancer for just over 2 years, but even during his own battle, he continued to fight the battle of others for as long as he could.

He leaves behind his wife Ann and 2 daughters.

Ann has given me permission to post this, so I hope you can join me in expressing our sadness at her and her families loss and the loss to the community of a Welfare Rights Advocate.

Is that J.McKendrick whose Rightsnet profile refers to Phoenix/NORCAS?  Very sorry indeed to hear that, what a dreadful thing to happen to someone with a family at this time of year.  Condolences to them all.

Hi HB - yes it is the one and the same.

We had worked together for a number of years and he was a true character!

Whenever I saw his name against a post I always thought, ‘This is going to good.’
