Jonathan Tischler

Jonathan Warren Tischler, 53, of Waverly, died unexpectedly on March 9, 2021. He was the husband of Rita (Sobol) Tischler.

He was born December 24, 1967, in Danville, PA, a son of the late Warren and Jean Tischler.

Jonathan graduated from Shikellamy High School, and attended Bloomsburg University. Jonathan previously owned and operated the Legends Restaurant in Salisbury, MD. Jon worked as the GSM of Dickson City Hyundai, where he excelled at car sales for many years.  He also was a former partner in The Links at Hemlock Creek in Bloomsburg, PA.  Jonathan was on the Board of Directors at Resilite Sports Products, Inc and was a major Shareholder. He most recently worked as a real estate agent with his wife Rita for Keller Williams Real Estate.

Jonathan was a member of the SIO fraternity.

Jonathan enjoyed golfing, gardening, wood working, and spending vacations at the beach with his family.  Jonathan was a skillful chef and loved cooking with his family. His enigmatic personality made an everlasting impression on everyone he met. Those that knew him felt his generosity, and undoubtedly wish they had more time with him.
