This is the story of our precious baby boy, who was diagnosed prenatally at
17 weeks with a fatal chromosome disorder called Trisomy 13. Although
Jonathan's condition is considered "not compatible with life", we desired to give
him every chance at life. Our prayer is that those who are touched by our story
are drawn to God, who is Life Himself. John 14:6

Jonathan David Tomaschko was born on October 8, 2009 at Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast.

Jonathan spent his entire life cradled in the arms of his loving parents. In 40 minutes, Jonathan's life was complete as he peacefully went home into the arms of Jesus, but not before leaving his tiny footprint in this world and on the hearts of many. Through his brief time on Earth, he was able to teach us a lifetime’s worth about God’s love and faithfulness.

Jonathan is survived by his proud parents, Greg and Lauren Tomaschko, and big sister, Kate Tomaschko, of Crestview, FL.

His loving family also includes maternal grandparents, Joe and Jill Bumgardner of Fort Walton Beach, FL.; paternal grandparents, Don and Suzanne Tomaschko of Niceville, FL; aunts and uncles, Jerry and Lindy Steindler of St. Louis, MO., and Michael and Stephanie Esneul of Niceville, FL.; cousins Michael Esneul, Christian Esneul, and Seth Steindler; and great-grandmother, Florence Dorroh of Mansville, LA.

A time of visitation will be held on Wednesday, October 14 from 2:00-3:00 pm at Rocky Bayou Baptist Church in Niceville, FL. A Celebration of Life will follow at the church at 3:00 p.m. with Rev. Carey Dean officiating. A private burial will be held at Heritage Gardens Cemetery, Niceville, FL.

Arrangements are under the direction of Heritage Gardens of Niceville, FL.

Expressions of sympathy may be made to Heart of the Bride Ministry of Niceville, in Jonathan’s name.
