Play Tribute Movie

Jason was born on July 16, 1973 to Linda and John Schultz in Garden City, Michigan. He passed away on January 29, 2020. He is survived by his four daughters, Kayla, Emily, Jenna and Allison as well as his parents, Linda and John "Rick", his brother Ricky (Des), sister Sara, and nephews Dylan, Wyatt, and Tyson. Survived also by many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was predeceased by the love of his life, Julie (2010) as well as his grandparents Elsie and John Schultz and Benjamin and Margaret Powell. Jason was a soon-to-be grandpa in the summer of 2020.

Growing up, Jason played baseball, soccer and football, was an avid boy scout, and spent several summers working on his uncle's farm to save money to buy his first car. We spent a lot of time together as a family and took many yearly trips to Greenfield Village and Cedar Point, and went on many family vacations. Jason also liked to spend a lot of time with his cousins.

Jason was a graduate of Wayne Memorial High School in 1991 where he was on the JV and Varsity football teams. After high school, he met Julie and they fell in love at first sight. They were married in 1999. Jason followed in his father's footsteps and became a commercial carpenter earning his Journeyman's License in 2005. He was the first person you could call if you needed any kind of home or auto repair. In his spare time he loved watching football, especially the Lions, Redskins and U of M, NASCAR (#88 Dale Earnhardt), and the RedWings. He liked hunting, fishing and grilling for his family. He lived everyday quoting different movies and TV shows that he loved to watch.

Jason had many struggles that he worked hard to try and overcome. Even though he had a tough exterior, he was big-hearted and sentimental, especially when it came to his girls and family. We take comfort in knowing he is reunited with Julie and has finally found peace.

Yabba Dabba Doo!

Desmond Lum-Schultz

Our hearts are broken, our feelings are inadequate, our family gatherings and game nights will never be the same. Although we’d only known each other for such short amount of time but knowing you have taught me the meaning of togetherness, and the importance of family value. The first time I met you – I thought you were very intimidating, but you reached out with a big heart and warm hugs, and that changed everything. We all can get carried away with challenges at times, but Ricky and I promise to be there for the girls, and ma & dad!

I am glad Ricky brought me in to be part of the Schultz team.

Miss you already –
Des

My heart is heavy and hurts. We have shared many memories together. As children laughing, crying, fighting as bothers do growing up. As an adult I watched you get married and have children of your own. So many memories I don’t know where to begin but my favorite was Kayla’s graduation party. We ran out of something so I ended having to drive to the store. You jumped in the back seat and kept thanking me for everything and telling me how much you loved me. Tears were shed that time too. I love you too brother. I miss you brother. Ricky

Dad,

You’ve taught me so much throughout the time we had with you, and we shared plenty of good memories together. One that has always stuck out to me is when I was about 6 years old and I was begging you to let me help you build our entertainment center. You did so, probably excited that one of your little girls wanted to pick up a hammer and nails to give you a hand, but only as long as I didn’t tell mom what you were letting me do. It was our secret, and I was equally as excited to be helping you out, even though I probably got in the way more than anything. But we both had a good time. That’s also the first memory I have of ever picking up any kind of tool, and now whenever I do... my mind brings me to you. The night that you passed, DeAngelo & I built the baby’s crib. It’s funny because he was the one “helping” me, and quite frankly, I could have done it all by myself. I couldn’t help but cry, and know that I knew exactly what I was doing because of you. I was thinking of that memory we shared the whole time. I’m thankful for the skills you instilled in us girls, and for all of the other memories we shared together.

I have always loved you then, and I still love you now.

❤️ Emily

Go Rest High On That Mountain

February 11, 2020

I know your life
On earth was troubled
And only you could know the pain.
You weren't afraid to face the devil,
You were no stranger to the rain.

Go rest high on that mountain
Son, your work on earth is done.
Go to heaven a-shoutin'
Love for the Father and the Son.

Oh, how we cried the day you left us
We gathered round your grave to grieve.
I wish I could see the angels faces
When they hear your sweet voice sing.

Go rest high on that mountain
Son, your work on earth is done.
Go to heaven a-shoutin'
Love for the Father and the Son.

Condolences to the family and friends of Jason. We had fun working together at Lowes, and I will always remember his sense of humor and smile.

You were exactly what a big brother should be...you picked on me just enough, but you were my protector, and you were my friend. You always answered a call whether it was me or the boys. When they were little I taught them how to steam-roller and dead weight each other just like you used to do to me and I still do it to them to this day when I catch them laying on the living room floor lol. Jay, I will always remember the good times. I've always been so thankful for the time on mom and dad's front porch that we shared the night before Julie passed, it means a little more to me now. I'm glad that your mind and soul are at peace, brother. You were searching so hard, for so long. I love you and you've always known that but now I hope you see just how much. Miss you always. Doh!

I’m so thankful for these past few months that we’ve had. I wouldn’t change a thing. I’m proud of how hard you’ve fought and who you were. I love you “extreme” (inside joke) and I’m so glad you’re not “lost” anymore (another inside joke). I love you baby ❤️

So many laughs and fun times growing up! I loved spending the night and staying up late to watch Saturday Night Live when we were kids. Most memorable- playing ball upstairs and shattering the light fixture in your bedroom and making whirlpools for hours in the pool.
