Jonathan Schuyler Moore 

Jonathan Schuyler Moore passed away peacefully on April 12, 2024, at the age of 39 surrounded by family after a short illness. He was born on January 5, 1985 in Shawnee Mission, Kansas.

Jon’s life was filled with adventure, passion, and a deep love for the great outdoors. Jon grew up with a zest for exploration and a curiosity for the natural world that would shape the course of his life. He pursued his college education at the University of Colorado in Boulder where he earned two bachelor’s degrees in political science and economics.

Jon found joy in the rugged peaks of Colorado where he spent countless hours hiking, climbing, and communing with nature. His adventurous spirit led him to conquer some of the most challenging summits. He climbed mountains all over the world, including Mount Rainier (2X), Mount Denali in Alaska, and Mount Elbrus in Russia. He also climbed numerous 14ers while in Colorado.

Jon’s passion for the outdoors extended beyond his personal pursuits. He was a staunch advocate for environmental conservation, always striving to protect and preserve the natural wonders he held dear. Beyond his love for nature, Jon was deeply passionate about politics including working in the legislature at the Colorado State Capitol. He believed fervently in the power of democracy and dedicated himself to advocating for causes he believed in. Whether engaging in spirited debates or volunteering for political campaigns, Jon approached his activism with vigor, compassion, and an unwavering sense of conviction.

Jon was a devoted friend, son, and brother. Though Jon’s time with us was too short, the memories he leaves behind will continue to live on in the hearts of those who loved him. He leaves behind a legacy of courage, compassion, and boundless exploration. His organs were donated in line with his wish to help improve the lives of others after his passing. He is survived by his parents, Bruce and Julie Moore of Salina, his brother Timothy Moore of Denver, his sister Caitlin Moore (Vadim Kogan) of San Francisco, and two nieces, Piper and Scout Kogan.

Jon requested cremation. A family Celebration of Life will be planned later. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Friends of the Animal Shelter are welcome.
