A couple days ago readers reported that a dead body was found in Shadowood Square. We have now confirmed that it was Jonathan (Eban) Bronzini, age 24. Mr. Bronzini, also known as Jonnie Bronzo, was a graduate of Olympic Heights and a resident of Boca Isles North.
He had many friends. One related to us:
He was a great person. He was on his way to becoming a paramedic. He was best friends with Joel Deleon, who passed away almost a year ago. I know he was going through a lot. His dad died not long after Joel.
We verified that Mr. Bronzini had been licensed as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). From his Facebook page it appears he was well liked and an accomplished musician. His profile is full of messages from friends sad to see him go.
I can’t believe you’re gone. I got the news last night but I woke this morning to a hope it was just a horrible dream. Sadly it’s reality. Jonnie Bronzo you were one of the sweetest people I have ever met. I’ll never forget tagging along to all APDFD band practices and hanging out with you. …
My heart is broken right now. Jonnie Bronzo (Eban) I can’t believe you’re gone. We’ve known each other almost our entire lives. From Sunday school to reuniting in high school playing music together to partying later in our 20s. You were always a kind soul and everyone loved you. May you Rest In Peace, brother. You will be missed dearly
We do not have any verified cause of death. The Sheriff’s office told us there was no suspicion of foul play.
