Jonathan B. Davis, age 48

Jonathan B. Davis, age 48, of Marshfield, passed away, unexpectedly, Sunday, May 12, 2024 at South Shore Hospital in Weymouth.

Jonathan was born in Boston, raised and educated in Braintree. He was a graduate of Thayer Academy, Class of 1994, and earned his Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Skidmore College in Saratoga, N.Y., Class of 1998. He lived in Marshfield for three years, previously in Scituate.

He was employed as a strategic account executive for Vercel in the Boston office for the past three years. Prior to that, Jonathan worked for Udacity in Boston.

As a young man, Jonathan was a talented athlete. At Thayer Academy, he was a three-sport athlete, as captain of the soccer team and as a varsity baseball and basketball player. At Skidmore College, he was a scouted relief pitcher and still holds the school record for most relief appearances. He maintained his love for all sports as an avid Boston sports fan.

Jonathan enjoyed gardening and working around his home. He liked golfing and recently, with former Skidmore ballplayers, joined a senior baseball league. He was well-know amongst his friends as being a “foodie,” sampling different foods and local restaurants.

He loved animals, especially his two rescue dogs, Gambi and Raven, and his late West Highland Terrier, Jasper.

  • The pain of missing my son seems so hard to bare. He was doing so well with his job and new house in Marshfield with his finance, Shauna. He was so full of life and those around soaked in his smile. Children are not supposed to die before their parents. Jonathan gave much joy to many people and would have given much more had he lived. The worst day in my life was Sunday, ironically Mothers Day, when he passed. A large hole will forever be in my heart.

  • I was so very sorry to hear about Jonathan’s passing. We are sending you and yours our deepest condolences and comfort.

  • I am deeply saddened to learn of John’s passing, my long time friend. Thoughts and prayers to Hal, Bobby Kay, Erica and Shauna. I will never forget John and I will always cherish our bond. He made us all laugh, and he was so intelligent, there was never a dull conversation. He will be missed greatly.
