A grieving woman has shared her husband’s touching last words before he tragically lost his battle with cancer when an infection took over his body.
Melbourne entrepreneur and multimillionaire real estate developer Jonathan Hallinan, 47, sadly passed away on Thursday after a two-year battle with cancer.
He received a bone marrow transplant in 2021 but unfortunately it wasn’t enough to save him.
Mr. Hallinan, who was the founder and CEO of construction company BPM Corp and has an estimated net worth of $866 million, is survived by his wife Mikka Hallinan and their three children.
In a heartfelt post on Instagram, Ms Hallinan said her husband died peacefully at the Royal Melbourne Hospital after “spending two days sharing ‘lovely farewells’ with his close family”.

‘Jonnie died in the storm [Thursday] Tomorrow,” she wrote.
“In his own words, Jonnie said he was going home.”
Ms Hallinan said her husband found “a deep comfort in the faith” at the hospital.
“Now it’s the home of what he called ‘eternal happiness,'” she said.
Ms Hallinan said a doctor broke the bad news to Mr Hallinan last week that a drug trial he was hoping to participate in was not possible.
The doctor said his body was too busy fighting off infection and he had “general malaise due to the extent of his illness in his body”.
She said she and Mr Hallinan’s family were by his side in his final days before he “left us for Heaven, in true Jonnie style, and arrived with a bang”.
“It was an absolute privilege to have been his wife and to love him and to be able to merge his family with my own,” she said.
Ms Hallinan admitted she was in emotional pain but found comfort in knowing she had helped her husband find “true freedom”.
The couple eloped in November, and Ms Hallinan shared they wanted to “spend the latter part of Jonnie’s recovery from cancer as husband and wife”.
She also spoke of Mr. Hallinan’s admirable reputation with family and friends.
“Those who knew him also know that in such a short time that he has been here, he packed so much achievement, adventure, success and fun and left an impact and legacy on more people than he ever could have imagine,” she said.
Ms Hallinan added in an Instagram story on Sunday that she will continue to share the couple’s memories with her followers.
“We’ve shared so much of our journey with so many of all of you, including those struggling to come to terms with the loss of Jonnie, people in the cancer community and those struggling with their own adversity,” she said.
“So I’ll continue to share the things I’m doing to navigate these difficult times, and maybe they can help some of you, too.”

The couple fled in November, and Ms Hallinan shared that they wanted to spend “the final part of Jonnie’s recovery from cancer as husband and wife”.
They wed just a day before his final cancer treatment began and celebrated at their South Yarra penthouse.
In his last post on Instagram in December, Mr Hallinan shared that a setback in his health has “taken absolutely all the strength I have left”.
“It is important to me to conserve all remaining energy for myself and my family,” he wrote.
“Thank you for your understanding if I have not contacted you, not responded to your calls, or cannot see you. It’s not personal, I’m just at my limit.
