Jon, a businessman, parent, and buddy group ringleader, shocks everyone by throwing himself off his office balcony in the first episode of A Million Little Things. No one understands why Jon would do such a thing: he appeared to be the happiest and most successful of all the friends in their close-knit group. While Jon was certainly concealing information from his friends in the present day, such as the affair his wife, Delilah (Stéphanie Szostak), was having with his best friend, Eddie (David Giuntoli), it was his guilt over a previous occurrence that gnawed at him for years.

Jon revealed on a DVD acquired by Delilah that he and his Harvard roommate had tickets for a trip departing from Logan Airport…on September 11, 2001. Jon missed American Airlines Flight 11, but his companion was killed when the plane was hijacked and used in the World Trade Center terrorist attack. Jon was nearly devastated by the survivor’s guilt until he met Delilah at the airport the next year.

Who is Barbara Morgan In A Million Little Things?

Jon’s roommate’s girlfriend was Barbara Morgan (Drea de Matteo). She was expecting his child. When she runs into Jon in the airport a year after September 11, he’s enraged because she’s already seeing a firefighter who will raise the baby she was pregnant with when Dave died as his own. Jon’s guilt stemmed from the fact that he survived while Dave perished, as well as the fact that he abandoned Barbara and presumably all of his other pals, as no one in his life is aware of Dave’s death because he couldn’t face his sadness.

The teenage P.J. (Chandler Riggs), who Jon’s friend Rome (Romany Malco) meets in the hospital, is revealed to be Dave’s son. After P.J. reads the film script that Rome left in the waiting area, Rome and P.J. form a friendship. Rome is partially influenced by P.J. to reconsider having children, despite the fact that his wife Regina (Christina Moses) is adamant that children are not in her future. Though the finale concludes Jon’s story, it also begins a new one: Delilah gives birth to her child, who is not Jon’s as her children believe, but Eddie’s. Eddie appears to confess as much to his wife Katharine (Grace Park) in the last moments of the episode, whom he reconciled with after nearly divorcing.
