Early this morning John went to Heaven, he passed peacefully in our arms. He made us proud every day of his life. We know he is comfortable now and we are relieved for him. We will spend our lives celebrating his, he has taught us all so much.

We are eternally grateful for all the love and support we have received through all these happy and hard times.

All our love,
Jesse and Alison


We are working out the details for a Celebration of Life, we will provide that information soon.

  32. Jesse, Alison, and Thompson family, I grieve with thee.

    I never met John in person, but I’m a friend of Kalee and Dan, and I came to admire John’s and your indomitable spirits through this difficult struggle, via this blog. And John’s budding artistic talent truly impressed me. The world has lost a great future artist. When I received your sad news, I had literally just returned from the church this afternoon, where I and my siblings had the heartbreaking duty of planning our dear Mother’s funeral with the priest and music director. She preceded John just three days ago. Some time ago, when I told Mom about John Bradley’s illness, she was visibly grieved for him. And she would have appreciated his talent, too, as she was an artist herself, for all her life long. I like to think of my Mom (77) and little John (7) meeting up in Heaven and making some beautiful art together.

    My deepest condolences to all the Thompson clan and friends. May God bless you and keep you, comfort you, and give you peace in this time of grief.


  33. Dear Allison and Jesse. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your amazing family. John was so honored to meet your son and be involved with the monkey in the chair. Your courage has been an inspiration. The amazing spirit of your son will live on and he will be your forever angel. God bless….Donna Markland

  34. I’m a friend of Caroline’s from Loyola. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers. God bless. -Dot

  35. Jesse & Allison,

    Thinking of you and your entire family. Sending thoughts and prayers your way.
