Jon Allbee Memorial Scholarship


October 19, 1966 – November 2, 2014 
$1,000 Scholarship

Jon Allbee was a 1985 Pleasant Valley High School graduate. Jon lost his life on Sunday, November 2nd, 2014 due to a traumatic brain injury from a motorcycle accident. Jon and his family grew up around motorcycles and enjoyed riding. 

Jon played football, wrestling and baseball and was very dedicated. He liked school for the sports and socializing amongst his friends. After high school Jon was a head baseball coach for the Bettendorf Colt League and loved it. He was a fun, out-going, respectful and great guy. He was all about his family and friends and would do anything for anyone.

He left January 24, 2011 for Afghaniston and was stationed at Camp Leatherneck, a marine base to help build the run ways for airplanes. In 2012 he was in Tehran, Iran and came home December 2012. Jon got into construction when he started at Mahler Concrete in Bettendorf as a concrete truck driver and ended at Valley Construction as a Concrete Quality Control Technician. He always worked hard and was very good at his job.

Jon left behind his 2 sons, Dustan and Austin and wife, Cindy. Also his mother Cheryl, sister Bobbie, his brothers Jay, Donny and David “Worm”, in-laws, several nieces and nephews. He will now be an angel along with his dad Jerry and son Josh.

His family is hoping that this scholarship will make it a little easier financially for a prospective college student and will keep Jon’s memory alive. Also the Jon Allbee endowed scholarship was created through all the generous donations from his family and friends. Anyone who knew Jon, loved him and he will be greatly missed by all.
