He is survived by his parents, Jean “Jack” Gilbert and Mary Gilbert; brother, Matthew Gilbert and his wife; a niece and two nephews, as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Jonah loved spending time with his family and friends. He enjoyed making people laugh. He was generous and kind to everyone he met. Interests were nature, travel, music, photography, and comedy. He was an excellent chef and landscaper. He graduated from ECSU with a bachelor’s degree in sociology. He worked as a social worker in the field of substance abuse treatment. He enjoyed visiting Fenway Park with his brother and father to watch Red Sox baseball games. All of those that knew him, loved him.

In addition to that information, it has been noted that he died from complications during heart surgery.

My fondest memories of Jonah were singing with him, back in high school.
