Visionner la présentation hommage

Jason Alan Bryans, 31, of San Francisco, entered immortality on April 19, 2016, at his home in San Francisco, CA.

Jason was born in Mason, MI, in 1984. He graduated from Mason High School in 2003 and attended Michigan State University in East Lansing, where he pursued a degree in Computer Engineering. In 2006, Jason moved to California to continue his education at San Jose State University. He interned at Google, and became a Wi-Fi engineer at Apple in Cupertino, earning several awards and advanced certifications while there. Jason lived most of his adult-life in San Francisco and was very active with and admired by a large circle of friends, who cherished his generosity, thoughtfulness, and biting wit. He greatly enjoyed musical theater, soldering, and scuba diving; loved Halloween and Christmas; and could name a rollercoaster manufacturer just by looking at the rails. He leaves behind a legacy of love and caring, and a hole in the hearts of those who were honored to know him.

Jason is survived by his parents, Robert and Nancy, of Mason, MI; his brother Danton and Danton's fiancée, Cara, of Indiana; grandparents, Robert and Marilyn, of Hastings, MI; Aunt Moe and Uncle Doug of Grand Ledge, MI; former partner, Troy, of San Francisco, CA; and a large and loving host of extended family and friends scattered around the country and the world.

A visitation will be held at the Gorsline Runciman Funeral Home in Mason, Michigan, on Sunday, May 1st, from 2 pm-4 pm and 6 pm-8 pm with rosary at 7 pm. His funeral mass will be Monday, May 2nd, at 11:00 am (with visitation from 10 am-11 am) at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in East Lansing, Michigan. A luncheon will follow the mass held in Fr. Mac Hall. A Memorial Service is also being planned in San Francisco, CA (exact date and location TBD).

The “Jason Bryans Life Celebration Fund” has been created for scholarships in Jason's name, and LGBT, music theater, and other groups in celebration of Jason's life and loves. Details on contributing and fund beneficiaries can be found at goo.gl/mxvbx8.

My thoughts go back to a caring and sensitive young man working to find his way in life. Then to a strong caring and sensitive man who found his way in life. I admired Jason's drive and strength. My thoughts are also with Jason's family and friends.

One of my first memories of elementary school was of Jason. He was full of wit even back then. He helped me not feel so alone. He had become such a strong person as an adult. A true inspiration. He was completely comfortable in his own skin. I'm heartbroken for the Bryan's family and very sad for his kitties. What will they do on "caturdays"?

My condolences to his friends and family.

Jason was such a sweet, caring guy. There was a time when things weren't going so well for me. I was jobless and homeless and too proud to do anything more than allude to it vaguely on social media. Jason messaged me out of the blue and asked me if I needed any help. He sent me a gift card to the local supermarket. It came at the perfect time as I had run out of money and used up my food stamps for the month.

I had always considered him a friend, but it wasn't as if we spent a lot of time together. So I was surprised and extremely touched by that gesture.

Jason, I love you. You will be missed.
