January 5, 1993 ~ March 20, 2019

Born in: Aurora, Colorado
Resided in: Aurora, Colorado

Jonathon Antonio Collazo died suddenly as a result of a tragic car accident in Aurora, CO on March 20, 2019 at the age of 26.

Jonathon is survived by his parents, Sandra Vargas (Atlanta, GA) and Samuel Collazo (Denver, CO); his significant other of the greater part of a decade, Nicole Seaver (Aurora, CO); siblings, Michelle Vargas and Ciana Vargas (Atlanta, GA), Kennedi Collazo (Houston, TX), and Ezekiel Collazo and Zipporah Collazo (Denver, CO); and countless cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents in New York City.  He is preceded in death by his grandmother, Hilda Peña (Aurora, CO).

Jonathon was born on January 5, 1993 in Aurora, CO to Sandra Vargas and Samuel Collazo. He graduated from Wyotech College (Laramie, WY) with a degree in Business Management and an Automotive Technician certification. In high school, he met his true love, Nicole, who he would spend the rest of his days with. After returning to Colorado, he began working in his favorite industry as a mechanic.

His family and friends remember him as a gentle, positive soul whose light always shined bright. A son who loved his parents. A brother who loved his sisters. A man who loved his woman. And a guy who loved his hobbies. He wasnt afraid to take risks when it came to cars. His passion was drifting and building cars. He always pursued his wildest fantasies and wasn’t afraid of risks. His family is comforted knowing that, although his death was untimely, he died doing what he loved…driving.

A funeral is scheduled for Saturday, March 30, 2019 at Horan & McConaty, 5303 E. County Line Rd. Centennial, CO 80122.

Reverend Quincy Shannon will officiate the ceremony. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Jonathon’s life. The family would like to thank Wes and Trinity Cosme for their care, dedication, comfort, and company during Jonathon’s final moments.

  10. I received your messages.

    1. MAMA by Boyz II Men
    2. HEAVEN by Jamie Foxx
    3. FAR AWAY by Marsha Ambrosius

    Getting these messages from you are so comforting and i havent shed a tear since Denver. Even though you’re FAR AWAY, I feel so at peace knowing you have transitioned to HEAVEN. Our MAMA breaks down regularly. Please communicate with her more to bring her comfort. She witnessed the messages you sent but she is still so worried about you. Talk to her. Make her understand that you are indeed in the good place. Let her know you’re okay.

    I think about you everyday. Since I have been living in Georgia (almost 3 years now), you slipped my mind a lot. We went from living together for years to being separated by distance. But you were (and still am) my baby and I was always there for you and you always there for me. It was always a pleasure to hear from you. I love how EVERY TIME I CALLED, YOU ANSWERED. Anything I needed, you made it happen. And vice versa. We were true siblings and had each others back and I love that! If I may say so…I did a great job raising you! Bennie told me “job well done”. I broke down so bad when he said that….but then again…I was comforted.

    I’ve been so proud of you for so long. You graduated high school. You graduated college. You worked doing what you love. You had a great woman in Nicole. We have always loved her and always will. You had amazing friends. Your life was dope! Even though this accident cut all that way too short, I know it was just an accident and I’m not angry. You left on a high note. No one can really feel bad about that. You died doing what you love. I wouldnt have it any other way. Driving. Fast! And knowing you died instantly is like…dude… you got the easy pass! This is some ol Fast & Furious type stuff! So fitting for you! You didnt die of a heart attack or choking on a doggone chicken bone. You went out like a champ, my dude! And again…that brings me peace. It puts a smile on my face. It makes me calm.

    It doesnt seem real that you’re gone. I dont know when itll truly hit me that you’re missing from my world. Maybe it wont. Maybe my grieving is over. Maybe I’m the lucky one. Maybe its these meds I’m on! I’m just happy to see my baby be successful in love, family, work, and LIFE. It’s like my child died. But I swear I’m ok. And somehow i think you know that. Please comfort mom and Nicole. They need you more than anyone. But if you can be in more than one place at the same time, I surely will be on the lookout for more messages from baby bro. They make me smile. I know when you’re messing around with me. Lol you know what I told Maria lol

    I hope you enjoyed my eulogy. I killed it. For you. It flowed so naturally. I took some notes of what i wanted to say but didnt even need them. I didnt stick to the script. It poured from me so effortlessly. I KNOW that YOUR message from your heart to MY mouth that day affected lives for years to come. FIND YOUR HAPPY. Simple, right? That’s how you lived. You didnt complain. Always grateful. And always happy. I found mine. And I plan to keep it that way.

    I love you baby brother. You’ve been my baby since I was 13 years old. At 39 I lost you. The day after my birthday. A day I will never forget. My life started March 19th and yours ended March 20th. I still feel like I am your mom and you are my son. I will always honor you. Respect you. Adore you and love you. Always. I will name my babies after you. I will name my businesses after you. I will always honor you. Always! Keep messaging me. I look forward to it <3
