I served in Guam with Jason. He was one cool dude. He was the first guy to invite me to hang out when I was brand new to the island and knew no one at the time.

I was stationed with Jason in California. I remember him as a kind, family man who although could see a negative aspect of a situation tried to share with others the positive aspect of a situation. He loved his family, was grateful to be in the military, we talked about Arkansas 😄 and was a listening ear when needed. Grateful for our time with him.

I had the privilege of being stationed in Guam with Jason. We for the most part always had some fun while working together especially post 5. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

I remember Jason as a some -what shy young man and student at Sheridan Schools and at First United Methodist too. Always polite, he would be engaged in conversation with you with just a little extra effort on your part and your reward would be a sweet and endearing smile from Jason. Our hearts go out to all of his family, especially his wife and children. May his family find comfort in the in the love extended to them from all that knew him. Sincerely, Bill and Rita Crossley
