My sincere and deepest condolences to the family and friends. My heart is aching for you. No parent should have to bury a child let alone two. They came in the world together and left the same way. I pray the good LORD wrap his loving arms around you all and give you peace of mind knowing they are in heaven. I am so very sorry for your losses

John was one of the best people I attended high school with. Many times he would make people laugh in sure club. He was also one of the most wises people I have meet in my life. My condolences I sent to the Mahoney family.

John and I were both members of the SURE Club in High School, and I remember just how much of a kind person he was. I’m sending positive energy to his family and friends, may he rest in peace.

John wrote this on my final issue of the Medium. I wish I had kept up with you better after graduating John was such a lovely, fun, and interesting person to be around. John wasn't perfect. He could say the wrong thing. He could make people uncomfortable from time to time. But whenever he slipped up, he always tried to be better. And that commitment to learning and improving was part of what made him such a unique person to be around. He always had something special to add to a conversation. No one I knew could list so many facts about athletes from the 60s, adult actors, and south american dictators that the US helped to put into power. Certainly no one I know could find a way to fit all 3 into the same sentence. And no one else could connect those to a completely unrelated conversation. John made the sports page his own. Sports is famously the most underserved page on the paper, having 2 or 3 people tops actively contributing to it. John made the page easy to understand and engage with. You didn't have to know anything about baseball or football or whatever to get a kick out of what he wrote. It was all so accessible. I only met Pat once or twice. I didn't get to know him well. He was nice and friendly. I wish I knew him better so I could say more. But the way John talked about him and supported him, you would think he had been sainted. And it wasn't just John's brother. The way John talked about anything he cared about, you would think it was the most important thing in the world, and you would want to listen. I know I did. I'm sorry if this rambles, and I know it talks about some faults, but I feel like that's what John would want. If there was someone he looked up to, someone he respected, if that person had made mistakes in their life, he would highlight them to show just how far they'd come. I miss you.

John was an incredible man and a great friend. He was easily one of the best people I met at Rutgers. We met through The Medium and became drinking buddies. This eventually turned into a great friendship and he became one of my closest friends. We bonded through our similar senses of humor and knowledge about obscure information. Even though I only have a minimal interest in sports, hearing John talk about the topic made it the most interesting thing in the world. He had a love for sports that he wanted to share with everyone. I always admired his passion. As a journalist, John had a deep interest in people and the world around us. He was a natural writer being able to write hundreds of words in an hour. If he had an interest in the topic, the words seemed to come natural to him. He was so funny that he could make an entire group of people, including himself, burst out laughing. He was also a great brother to Pat and truly loved him. The world is now a sadder place without him.

I met John through The Medium at Rutgers. He was such an amazing person, he was always kind to everyone around him and his positivity was infectious. Anytime I saw him around it felt like running into an old friend you hadn't seen in a while. His loss is devastating to everyone who knew him.
Kiran Subramanian left a message on June 11, 2024:
I first met John when we joined The Medium, the satire paper at Rutgers, in September 2021. Up until this point, I didn't really have any friends at Rutgers. I just graduated from high school and was just starting my freshman year at the university. Simply put, John was the first ever friend I made at Rutgers. He was someone who always could crack a joke, inform you about sports, and was a pillar of support. I still remember some of his funny pitches, his witty comments, and his vibrant personality. John truly had an impact on my life, and he will be deeply missed.
Alex Chen left a message on June 11, 2024:
John was a friend to me during my freshman year at Rutgers. He gave me a sense of belonging there, especially during the Medium satire newspaper club. He was one of the funniest, supportive people I had that year. I will miss his presence in this world, but will not forget his impact on my life.

I am so very sorry for your tremendous loss. This happened right at the intersection near my house. I wish there is something I could do to ease your pain. I’m sure he was a wonderful young man. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.
Adrienne Brookstein left a message on June 10, 2024:
John and I were good friends in high school. He was my right-hand man in our high school newspaper, The Patriot, and our literary magazine, Pieces. He put up with me and dealt with my craziness in the weeks before publication. He was always happy to help or comfort me, and we shared a mutual love of journalism and writing. Hippie John was also a great friend- a true gentle giant. He gave the best bear hugs and had a genuinely infectious laugh. He was also so weird but in the best possible ways. I remember him raving about professional wrestling, and if memory serves me right, he was a super fan of the Undertaker and the Hulk Hogan. He also loved stand-up comedy, especially Rodney Dangerfield. Hippie John was so unique, passionate, and full of life. The loss of our dear friend devastates me. The world is much sadder without him in it, but I'm so grateful I knew him and witnessed his light.

Our condolences to John & Jen for the tragic loss of their son John, and to both the Mahoney and Brogan families who are also grieving at this sad time. We will remember John for his laughter, jokes and story telling. Also his hugs! We will pray for all of you and especially for John and Patrick! May they rest with Angels until we meet again. Love, Denise & Karen
Cindi LaSpada left a message on June 7, 2024:
I have no words to describe my sorry for the loss of Patrick and John. I am the Hallmark rep for Dollar Tree and I saw John every Monday. Every week I'd ask if he found and job and he would tell me his journey. I would tease him that I needed to talk to these people and ask them why they didn't hire him. He would always get embarrassed and say politely No Thanks. By sheer luck last week they were both there and I got to tease them both. My Monday visit will never be the same but I know there are two special special angels looking out for everyone.
