    Thank God the University didn’t drag this out any longer than necessary, and let this young man get away from what he loves most.

    Jon: May your career be long and rewarding.

  • Ed Crockett Says:

    I’ve known Jon since he fist set foot in Ohio Stadium. I’ve watched him grow from a rookie Sousaphone player, to i-dotter, to squad leader, to graduate assistant, to assistant director, to interim director, and now to director. All well deserved. I’m proud to count Jon and his lovely wife Molly as friends and the OSU and band community is fortunate to have this guy where he is. Congratulation, Jonathan Waters!

    Go Bucks!
