Thanks for creating this thread... I was coming to post it in the RWC thread, but it deserves its own acknowledgement...
I'm stunned, absolutely stunned… He battled illness for some time, but I was under the impression he was doing much better.
Very sad news…

RIP Jonah, you will be missed. (My first Rugby hero, going all the way back to the 95 RWC)
Sad, gone way too soon! Much like Walter Payton was.
