The world has lost a wizard.
We are very sorry to hear about the passing of Jon Rossi of Pilgrim. We crossed paths a couple of times, and a more humble and kind soul you won’t come across often.
Our deepest condolances to Jon’s family, friends and his brothers in Pilgrim.
Rest in Peace, Wizard. The pilgrimage has just begun.
Rest in peace, Jon. You’ll be missed. Via BrooklynVegan
I never got to meet him in person but he was one of the first interviews i did for my radio show check this out from 2014! Back then i remember being very nervous about doing interviews but The Wizard was such a cool down to earth dude he made me feel comfortable right away, rest in peace brother!
