Robert Jonas

“Bob Jonas was my friend in Colombia. An “older volunteer” than most of us. He knew he had a heart condition, but even as a successful business man in Colorado, he parked his sports car on blocks and headed for Peace Corps in Colombia where he said he felt more fulfilled as a person. Although he never quite mastered Spanish, Bob was effective, breaching the age and culture gap with his experience, making friends and influencing small business men in Cartagena and Bogota. I still miss him…”
