My first real experience with Jason was spent on a bench at green ramp shooting the breeze for 8 hours during an EDRE. We knew we weren’t jumping so we were relaxed. Over that time span i got to know him pretty well. He quickly became one of my favorite guys in the battery. Whenever I had battalion staff duty I could always count on Jason being awake and ready to do more hanging out and talking. I’ll miss that. I’ll always remember him as a strong and incredibly compassionate guy who would go to the ends of the freaking earth for anyone. Truly one of the best people I’ve ever known. I’m lucky to call him a friend and a brother. We all are. Rest In Peace Jason. I’ll do my best to watch over my guys the way you did.

I remember when Jason first came into the family when he was just 5 years old. His grandma was was so excited and proud to show off her new grandson. Imagine how proud she has been of the young man he became!!!

My heart hurts for the loss of Jason. We have been blessed to know Jason via the army family. Jason is and was an amazing person and soldier. He forever will be loved and missed! He blessed the Garee family with his charisma, loyalty, and strength. I want the beautiful family he left behind to know what an impact he has left behind. My heart and forever thankful for him will never be forgotten. We loved him and always will. Prayers of peace and strength as our sweet soldier gone to soon😥💔. Gone to soon and loved forever!

I remember the cutest little boy who sang "We're a Happy Family" at his Dad's wedding. A little boy who loved candy and hated onions. A little boy who had the best smile and could be the sweetest thing, but was also quite skilled at getting in trouble at times. I think that probably describes a lot of little boys, but you are the little boy that I remember. That little boy turned into a fine young man.

Jason, My Friend and My Brother, I’m going to miss you. We grew up together, played ball together, and learned how to be men together. You were such a loyal friend, and always told it like it was. I always appreciated that about you. There are countless memories that I will share for the rest of my life. The Guys and I will miss you more than you could ever know. Thanks for being a great Teammate, Person and Friend. Fly high Number 12!!

There will forever be something missing from my life now. The world became a little more dark without you in it. You were my best friend and closest confidant. Until we meet again brother, you will forever be in my thoughts.

Our hearts are broken due to the loss of your presence in our lives. I will personally treasure memories of fishing trips, camping, you petting wild buffalo at Yellowstone, petting wild deer in Canada, rafting down the cool river on hot days, riding on John Deere tractors, Fourth of July parades and fireworks in Washington DC and your tender heart toward animals. Your “evil eye” stare was precious. We thank you for your many years of honorable service in the US Army and your time served in Afghanistan. I loved you like a son. Rest In Peace my dear nephew until I meet you in heaven.
