RJG Says Good-Bye to Employee and Friend

Jonathan G. Newsome, RJG's Regional Sales Manager for the East Coast, died unexpectedly on July 17th. Jon’s career included more than 30 years of success working in the plastics industry, where he held positions managing sales at large companies such as Battenfeld, Milacron, and Krauss-Maffei. In 2005 he was hired by RJG, Inc. Co-workers describe him as an old-school salesman who wouldn’t take no for an answer.

Born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, Jon was residing with his family in Kintnersville, PA. Jon is survived by his wife of 29 years, Marlene, and his three children, Grant, Alexandra, and Madeline.

He loved his job, his customers, racing, and a good bottle of scotch. But, his true love was his family. Jon considered his three greatest accomplishments to be his children.

Jon’s no-nonsense attitude and witty sense of humor will be missed by all who knew him.

An education fund for Jon‘s children has been established. One of Jon’s main motivations was to ensure each of his children would obtain a college degree. If you would like to contribute, checks can be made out to The Newsome Children Educational Fund and mailed to TD Bank, One Royal Road, Flemington, NJ 08822.

Eliminate Sensor Cabling Issues
RJG is developing an 8 channel strain gage solution. The 8 channel strain gage solution will eliminate all of the individual connectors, cables and junctions used today to install multiple sensors. A single connection point is installed on the mold that connects to the electronics mounted off of the mold. Please contact RJG Engineering at 231 933 8151 for more information.
