Jon’s Story

Site created on August 16, 2019

Hi everyone! As you probably know I'm more than a little bit of an introvert, and I'm terrible at keeping in touch with even my best friends who I love. I'm sorry I can't update everyone personally with every bit of news or need for assistance, but hopefully the journal will keep you looped in!

If you're in Seattle and have the time and ability to assist, please consider joining the TeamLasser Slack (

PLEASE NOTE: The “Tribute” function on this site is a donation to CaringBridge, which runs this site. We do NOT have a GoFundMe set up for Jon at this time.

Journal entry by Jon Lasser

My shoulder is showing signs of improvement: the x-ray showed new bone being laid down around the damaged site. Will get another checkup come January, and more imaging then, to make sure it's still on a good path.

I walked 10,000 steps yesterday, my first time hitting my used-to-be-every-day target since July 13th. That made me feel pretty great.

As I mentioned yesterday, I've got no more appointments for around a month, so don't expect many updates until the beginning of December. Thanks again to everyone for the support; it's been, quite literally, a lifesaver.
