It is with heavy hearts we announce the unexpected death of Jon “Fargo” Staton, age 51, at his home in Shelburne, Vermont, on August 5, 2022.  Jon was a devoted member of Saybrook House and graduated pre-med in 1993. While at Yale, Jon loved playing on his intramural ice hockey team and put together many basement bands playing the electric guitar and vocals.  

Jon went on to graduate from Georgetown Medical School in 1997 and had a successful career as an ear, nose, and throat physician in the Houston, Texas, area and in Burlington, Vermont.  Above all else, Jon was most passionate about his family and left behind his wonderful wife of 23 years, Kimberlea Ward Staton, and his incredible children Jacob (20), Anna (19),  Henry (13), and Liam (13) Staton. He spent all of his free time with his family, and loved coaching their many youth hockey teams. Jon was a kind and loving man, and was very generous with his talents and helping others.  

“Fargo” also leaves behind a tight group of Yale friends who meant the world to him.
