Struggling from depression 

Daniel’s son Jon gave an interview to Graham Bensinger in his show where he recalled his childhood. He remembered his mom, who did everything to see her child Jon achieve everything. 

His mom was very focused on him and his future. Jon’s mom passed away when she was just 35 years old, which was too early as she struggled with cancer. 

When Jon’s mother passed away he was just 10 years old and it was really hard for a ten years old to accept that fact that his mother is no longer with him. 

The death of his mother created a hard time in Jon and his father’s life. Jon said that it was really a tuff situation for him when he heard about his mother’s death. After some years of his mother’s death, Jon lost his dad, which made his life a nightmare. 

Although he has sisters, friends and other relatives, but they weren’t able to fulfill the emptiness that he had after losing his father and mother.

But he is thankful that he has some family and friends who helped him face the whole situation, and they kindly reminded him that he still needs to go long and achieve many things in his life. 

Those things said to Jon by his close ones made him realize that he needs to see a therapist to get over the pain he was suffering from inside. 

Seeking help from the therapist worked on him as the medicine prescribed to him changed his whole mindset. 

Because of this, he started feeling okay and found improvement as he managed to do each and every work properly in time. He felt that therapy brought his life on the proper track.

Death of his ex-wife

His ex-wife died in 1981 due to colon cancer. She had cancer from a long time. 

The cancer spread throughout her body, and it became incurable.

Her son was only ten at that time. Jon used to live with his mother after his parents divorce. 

After the death of his mother, he started living with his father and grandmother. 

To lost a mother at such a young age made Jon's childhood days hard.
