The State Bar of Michigan notes the passing of a heroic figure in promoting justice, advocacy, and creative solution building: Jon R. Muth. I had the pleasure of working with Jon in the 1990s and experiencing his shining light as one of my mentors. He was an inspiration, a joy to work with and be with, and a true professional.
I cannot agree more with current SBM President Rob Buchanan who said:
“Michigan has lost one of the finest people in its history. Today we mourn, but with pride, remembering Jon Muth as we knew him—a skilled and tireless advocate for justice, an inspiring leader, a cherished friend, and an incredible human. Everyone instantly liked Jon, and he always embraced you as his best friend with that magical twinkle in his eye and warm smile. As a leader, he devised a strategy that was smart, fair-minded, and laser-focused on one goal: succeeding.”
