Jonathan was born on February 26, 1963 in Calvert County, Maryland to John Smith and Dorothy Jefferson Smith. He was raised and educated in Calvert County. In his younger days, Jonathan enjoyed running track (resulting in the nickname of “Smitlash” because of his flash-of-lightning speed). Jonathan was an avid fan of football and loved the Dallas Cowboys. He was a lifelong lover of fishing, crabbing, and biking. He enjoyed spending time with his family and attending family gatherings.
Jonathan worked in shipyards throughout the area doing fiberglass restoration of the hulls of boats.
Jonathan was preceded in death by his late father, John Smith, and his late brother, Gene Smith.
Jonathan is survived by his mother, Dorothy Smith, and his children, LaTonya Smith, LaToya Louis, LaTisha Smith, and Jonathan Smith, Jr.
Jonathan also leaves behind siblings; Marcus Smith, Toby Smith, Maureen Holliday, Avan Smith, and Wayne Smith. He is also survived by fifteen grandchildren and a host of other relatives and friends.
