Jon Everett Bagley, 44, of Independence, MO, passed away on Monday, March 29, 2021. A visitation will be held from 1-2pm on Thursday, April 8, 2021 at Carson-Speaks Chapel, 1501 W Lexington, Independence, MO 64052, with a service at 2pm, also at Carson-Speaks. Cremation will follow service, with Jon finally being inurned at Mt. Washington Cemetery on Saturday, April 10, 2021, near his father. Jon and his twin sister, Cindy, were born on February 8, 1977 to Wilbur and Phyllis (Billups) Bagley in Topeka, KS. They were the second of 4 children, with brother Wes before and Leonard to follow. Jon grew up in Independence and graduated from William Chrisman High School. As a child, Jon became involved with the Boy Scouts, working hard for many years, finally earning his Eagle Scout rank and membership into the tribe of Mic-O-Say. For the past four year, Jon enjoyed his job as a meat cutter at Price Chopper. He was a fantastic employee; a true “people person”, who loved working with and helping customers. Jon was also a KU fan and an avid deer hunter and fisherman, with much of his time, since childhood, spent outdoors, with his family in Warsaw. Jon was adventurous, traveling with friends or alone, as he did on a trip to Canada; something many would be hesitant to do alone. Jon was a member of a “Jazzercise” Studio for almost 10 years and found much joy from the friendships he made there. He motivated and supported countless others while they got and stayed healthy, at the same time, having fun, meeting new people. Jon also enjoyed video games, movies, and cooking. He loved to go out and dance, anywhere there was music. Jon was a Halloween and birthday fanatic; planning yearly parties down to the last detail, even if it was his own birthday. Most of all, Jon loved his family, which included his two beloved “Fur Babies”, his cats, Shy and Sky. Jon is survived by his mother, Phyllis Bagley; twin sister, Cindy Bagley; brothers, Leonard Bagley (Angie) and Wesley Bagley; a niece, Zoey Nichols; and two nephews, Samuel Nichols and Logan Bagley. Jon is preceded in death by his father, Wilbur. Donations to Wayside Waifs may be made in lieu of flowers.

Here is a typical Jon story. We were out shopping and walked into JC Penney’s on a Saturday. They were handing out coupons to the first 100 shoppers in the store. We each received one. We went our own ways to look at items we might buy. Jon ran into someone he knew and chatted with them.
Jon and I met back up, neither of us found anything to buy. Jon told me about his friend he saw and ran back through the store to find her and give her his coupon. He said they were expecting a baby and might need help buying baby things.
Jon was a generous, kind, sweet friend. As I’ve said before, he collected friends like some of us collect things. I think Jon was all the more richer for his collection.

Jon was my first friend at Jazzercise in Independence. It didn't take long to realize we were neighbors and I began giving him rides when we were going the same direction. He danced with exuberance, a "whoo hoo" and tic tacs in his pocket. I love that he insisted I tie bells on my shoes at Christmas-time. He was a bright spot in many of my days. He is gone too soon and the world is lesser for it. Sending my deepest condolences and sincerest prayers to his family. May you find comfort knowing how much joy he brought to so many of us. His was a well-lived life.

I met Jon about 10 years ago through a mutual friend, had some fun times at Funkytown, and eventually Jazzercise when you joined. Always had a smile on your face, will miss seeing you at Jazzercise and every time I go to Price Chopper!! You will be missed by so many!!

We knew Jon from Jazzercise. Jon was full of joy. We have many good memories of his birthday outings and the big smile on his face when everyone gathered for his birthday. We are so sorry he is gone, far too soon. Jon will be missed by many.
