Sorry to hear about Jon's passing. We were at the CID School together and he was great person to work for. Rest in peace Jon.

Jon was a great friend and will be missed by all. It was always a pleasure to see him and be around him. God Bless his family and I know God will hold and protect him where he is now.

I read with great saddness that Jon passed away. He was truly one of the most professional CID Agents and Warrant Officers I have ever met. He was one of the men that you could call on at any time of the day or night and he would do everything in his power to help you out. He will be missed by many agents, friends in the Anniston area and his family. May God bless and comfort his family during this very tough time.

Jon was a "straight shooter" in more ways than one. Infectious smile, completely dedicated, talented and personable (with just the right touch of "irreverence"). I am so sad to learn of his passing.

I am very sorry to hear of Jon's passing. I met Jon at USAMPS in the early 80's and he was always very professional. I also served on a committee with Jon after Desert Storm and he was always willing to assist and provide his expert guidance.
My thoughts and prayers will be with Jon and his family.
Rest in Peace Jon and may God bless you!

Like all others, I am truly saddened that Jon is no longer with us. He was a great person, friend, agent and mentor. We were on the IG Team together in the 1984-85 time frame. I learned a lot from a true professional. My prayers and sympathy to his family. Rich

Jon Coulson - He never met a stranger and once he met you, he never forgot you. Rest in peace, old friend.

So sorry to hear of Chief Coulson's passing. I have a great photo of him pinning me as a WO1 at USAMPS. God Bless and comfort the entire family.

Lynn Muehlmeyer called me yesterday morning, and told me of Jon's passing. He had just read it in the Anniston Star Friday morning. As I understand it, he passed away on Wednesday. Jon worked in DOT with Lynn Muehlmeyer at USAMPS while I was in DOTD there. He was a mentor of mine, and a supporter of the 2nd amendment. He was a great instructor, and a personable, likeable professional.

There are a few places agents serve where they truly have the opportunity to influence other agents at every level throughout the world. Jon served in two of the main ones, the IG Team and USAMPS. He was the consummate professional in both Ė as well as in every other assignment and endeavor as far as I know. Jonís positive influence on the entire CIDC family was truly a blessing. He was one of my mentors and friends and I am a better person was a better agent for having known him. His family and all of us will be in my thoughts and prayers Ė he will be missed!

Jonathan Coulson is one of the few to have retired in the rank of MW4 (Master Warrant 4) prior to the rank of CW5 being established. This information was verified at CID Headquarters.
|By Tracy Usry (Tusry) on Friday, November 05, 2010 - 12:24 pm: Edit|
I am overwhelmed! He was w/o a doubt the nicest person to ever serve in CID! A great gunsmith as well. I am saddened with the loss.
Jon always had a smile and a story to make you laugh. he was a pleasure to know both professionally and personally. He will be missed by all who knew him.
Somehow the world seems a little less bright with his loss.
My heart felt sympathy to his family and friends.

Wow, really sorry to hear of Jon's passing. I know many of us have our funny Jon stories... my favorite was walking with Jon in uniform at the PX in Fort McClellan. We were trying to grab some lunch before getting back to the school house. We were approaching a group of chemical officer basic students and one Second Lieutenant, says to Jon, "Excuse me Chief, do you know how to salute?" Without breaking stride Jon says "I do Son, but I don't have time to teach you right now!" After Jon retired I used to stop by his gun shop on my way home. I learned a lot from Jon, from his time on the IG Team, as an Instructor at the school house, as a fellow Instructor at McClellan and most of all as a friend Rest in peace Jon!

I'm cautiously delighted to agree with CW5 Kangas as his comments appear to be spot on. I wish I could provide additional information however Al has been unable to contact Jon's son Matt for a further update and I'm still overseas. I'll try to provide an update next week as I'll be back in Anniston. Thanks again!!

Jon is a strong person. I'm praying for him and certainly not counting him down.

Jon has always been a great friend and a mentor to every agent passing through the schoolhouse. How many young CID minds did he shape? I was saddened learning of Jon's dilemma and know that if anyone can beat the odds it would be Jon. My prayers are with you Jon.

I apologize to all as I should have reviewed this msg..... here is the info from Al Marion: I am saddened to report that Jon Coulson is not doing well. I received a call from his son, Matt, today saying that things do not look good. Jon was on a cruise this week with his wife and experienced breathing problems that resulted in a collapsed lung. He was evacíd to the US and is now in the ICU at the RMC, Anniston, AL. He is presently on a respirator, but not responding, as his lungs will not expand correctly. Matt stated they were informed by the doctor that if there is no response within 48 hrs, then itís over. Jon has a living will citing no machines.

I received the below this morning from Al Marion (Ret CW3) as I'm currently overseas. As I'm, certain you all know, prayers now are a "good thing" in mass formations!! I visited with Jon at his gun shop in Anniston about 1-2 months ago. Anyone who saw him before the school left McClellan in '99 would then know what he now looked like and he still certainly acted just as crazy!!! MAY THE GREAT PHYSICIAN FIND IT WITHIN HIS MIGHTY POWER TO ALLOW OUR BROTHER JON THE CHANCE TO REMAIN WITH ALL OF US, HIS EXTENDED FAMILY!!!WE ASK ALSO LORD YOU WATCH OVER BROTHER JON'S FAMILY! AMEN & AMEN
