We have opened up a book of condolence for Jonathan. He meant so much to so many of us we felt it only fitting to have somewhere where we can share our thoughts, memories and reflections of the man himself.
The world lost a fine soul and sales champion filled with wit, humor and drive. I never had the pleasure of meeting Jonathan in person, but he phoned me regularly. He spoke his mind. He didn't always tell me what I wanted to hear, but what I needed to hear and for that, I am forever grateful. He uplifted women, (adored many and called them out by name) . May your memory continue to be a blessing.

I am forever grateful to Jonathan for giving me and so many new voices a platform over the years. Being a part of this community he created and personally tended to introduced me to a whole tribe of brilliant professionals trying to raise the bar on the sales profession. I will miss his cheeky humor and the quick-witted repartee, that despite his many commitments, he always managed to find time to engage in. I for one will continue to keep up his spirit of always challenging the status quo - and managing to have some good fun along the way.
My heartfelt sympathy and best wishes to his dear friends and family.

Shocked and saddened.
Jonathan was THE biggest supporter of all of us who are trying to impact the sales world.
His sass and smarts will be sorely missed.
Sympathies and prayers to Nathalie and the "kids". And Jacqueline - oh I feel sad for you!!!
Thank you Jonathan for all you've done in the 14 years I've known you to raise others up.
Jonathan you were the "CR7" of sales improvement.
I'm going to miss not only talking about sales but also about football.
I keep thinking we are still going to talk, which tells me how big a loss this is.
Jonathan was a rare light in the world of sales, and in the world. I can only try to emulate his passion. Should I get close to having his impact on the world, and on the people he touched, I would be content. He leaves a void that can not be filled, but the effect he had on people, on Membrain and on me will continue to reverberate. I'm truly thankful for having met Jonathan, my life is better for it. You will be missed.
So sad to hear of the passing of Jonathan, I first met Jonathan many years ago just before he launched Top Sales.
Jonathan had foresight in the field of sales combined with his sense of humour, this is a sad loss not only to the world of sales but to everyone who knew and loved him

Jonathan never tired of working. His mind was constantly buzzing with new ideas. He was passionate about networking and connecting like-minded people, and he truly enjoyed helping others.
I pray that his legacy will go on and that someone will have the vision and courage to pick up the “flame” and carry it further…
He was one of a kind, beautiful and sensitive, my everything, and the heartbreak caused by his sudden passing will never heal…
Your beautiful, and often very touching words go straight to my heart and bring me comfort – Thank you…

Jonathan was a dear friend and colleague. He was creative, inspirational, kind, generous, understanding, humorous, and a trailblazer. He created Top Sales World as a place for everyone in sales to learn and grow. His Top Sales World awards showcased top sales talent. I will miss him terribly.
What a loss to the sales world. I had no voice till Jonathan helped me build one. I was inspired by the community he built and honored to be part of it. He did so much for women in sales we all owe him a debt of gratitude. Many thanks my friend and know you will be missed!
Jonathan Farrington was an icon of the selling fraternity who was an immensely positive influence for professionalism and growth. He was one of those icons who we expected to be around for ever continually holding us to account and helping us achieve.
His death was a great shock and I will miss his influence immensely.
My thoughts go to his wife, family and the Top Sales World team.
I will remember him fondly as a supporter of mine and somebody who gave without expecting anything in return. Long live the memory.
