Jon Snow Alive?

Before you start reading this article know that there will be spoilers, so before you continue know that you have been warned.
With HBO's Game of Thrones Season 5 coming to such a climatic close, viewers and fans of the book were left with a lot of unanswered questions, the most pressing to many is the current fate of the fan favorite and heart throb for so many, Jon Snow.
After being outed as a traitor by his brethren in the Night's Watch, Jon was lured into an ambush by the now fan christened spawn of the devil Olley and stabbed several times by his kin, as the scene closed we see Jon laid on his back as his blood seeps red in the pure white snow, leaving many with a grim and polarizing feel that their hero's story has finally come to a close.
Now the major question we fans are left to ask, is this the end of Jon Snow? We can see where Sam answers our question in what many my say is obvious foreshadowing.
Now our imaginations are task with determining who, or what will allow bring back Jon Snow. Will he become a white walker, seeing as in the end of season 5 we never saw anyone motion to burn his body?
Or will Jon Snow be revived by Melisandre? We have seen where followers of the Lord of Light have been ale to resurrect others from the dead and there is some fan speculation that Jon may be the one that Melisandre saw in her visions, meaning he may in fact be the legendary Azor Ahai. But before I move on to my next point, who is Azor Ahai?
According to prophecy, in ancient books of Asshai (game of thrones religious text) from over five thousand years ago, Azor Ahai is to be reborn again as a champion sent by R'hllor (google him). This will occur after a long summer when an evil, cold darkness descends upon the world.It is said that wielding Lightbringer once again, Azor Ahai will stand against the Others and if he fails, the world fails with him. Below will be a link to see the different fan theories of whom people think is the real Azor Ahai.
Death becomes him, whether you like him or not, Jon Snow has been an integral part in the progression of both the books and tv show and if he is permanently gone why did the author George R.R Martin Spend so many years developing his story? You can say he was our one link to see the events that took place north of the wall and there are too many unanswered questions revolving around his story. If this character stays dead I can assure you fan girls and fan boys around the world will be rather disappointed and with rumours that Kit Harington (Jon Snow) has been seen around the set of the season 6 filming, we can be safe to say that there is no writing him off just yet.
Just let this line from the books and tv show soak in a bit.
Aemon Targaryen - “Allow me to give my lord one last piece of counsel," the old man had said, "the same counsel I once gave my brother when we parted for the last time. He was three-and-thirty when the Great Council chose him to mount the Iron Throne. A man grown with sons of his own, yet in some ways still a boy. Egg had an innocence to him, a sweetness we all loved. Kill the boy within you, I told him the day I took ship for the Wall. It takes a man to rule. An Aegon, not an Egg. Kill the boy and let the man be born." The old man felt Jon's face. "You are half the age that Egg was, and your own burden is crueller one, I fear. You will have little joy of your command, but I think you have the strength in you to do the things that must be done. Kill the boy, Jon Snow. Winter is almost upon us. Kill the boy and let the man be born.”
― George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons
