Mr. Boller and I were very saddened to hear of Jason's passing. He was a wonderful human being and brought such joy to this world. In grade school, he always had a smile on his face and a kind word for everyone. I always told him he had a big heart and was so compassionate. Later on in life, we'd run into each other on the parking lot of Schnuck's and catch up on how his life was going. The topic that brought him the most joy was talking about his children. He was so proud of them. We will be remembering his family and him in our prayers.

I met you in high school but years separated us so it wasn’t until I married into the family that I was lucky enough to truly get to know you. I loved all our deep talks and the occasional night shenanigans... the trips, the house parties, bunko nights, and sleepovers. I love that your son is just like you making sure to pull me aside at every family function to check in on me and how intuitive he is just as you were when it came to sensing I was struggling. I love the amazing bond you share with Grace. How you were her go-to shopping partner and how much your unique relationship warmly reminded me of my dad that I desperately longed for. You and Sara were my and Eric’s role models as parents. Sharing your kids with us and giving me a niece and nephew was one of the greatest gifts anyone has ever given me. I will miss our check-ins that often turned into pages and pages of messages. You were always a great conversationalist with just the right amount of humor to make the serious things hurt a little less. One of my favorite memories when I think we really connected was the family trip to the “tragic kingdom” and Grant was chewing gum on your shoulders which of course ended up stuck in your hair. You & I sat on that bench for at least an hour laughing and talking while I slowly worked it out of your hair. You were such a joy to be around and despite your hardships I’m not sure I ever heard you complain much. You just seemed to love life and want the best for your kids which you and Sara did it! They are some of the most incredible people in my life. We got you Grace and Grant and I thank my lucky stars daily for having all of you in my life. You left us way too soon but you’ll never be forgotten and will always be remembered. Grace & Grant will honor you daily just by being themselves instilled with all those amazing qualities you nurtured within them. Here’s to you Hubie! May you find peace and happiness on the other side til we meet again! LGB

I watched Jason enter into the P&G family. First in HSC Liquids and then , to what he would grow to love and call "Home"...... the Warehouse. I quickly felt good vibes with Jason shortly after and liked the young man every since. Jason and I would talk about all kinds of things. He was real to earth, knowledgeable across all
cultures. We would talk East Side stuff, when he worked at recovering merchandise. We talked about old school Rap... Wu Tang Clan. He loved "Ol Dirty Bastard". We talked Blues hockey & Cardinal Baseball. We talked comedy, especially impersonations were I believed Jason was a master of mimicking. I remember the legendary one, he would always do of a former retired P&G employee... Ronnie Hutchins. We all would crack up laughing! It was all in fun within the warehouse family. Celebrities CoCo & Ice T were his favorites as well. Most of all, I remember Jason's talks and dedication to being a father to those wonderful children Grace & Grant, and sometimes the hardships he had to muster through. I remember how excited Grant was one evening, when Jason had an extra ticket and invited me to come down to the stadium with them, to watch the Cardinals "whoop" up on somebody. The fatherly love was apparent. I would always ask him how the kids were growing, and by this time you could tell he had gotten a lot of experiences from both children, at being their father. I pray for the entire family and will personally miss "J-Hubie" as I called him. Cherish God's gifts to you.... because you never know when he may decide to take them back.

I worked at P&G with Jason aka Hubie. Every time I saw him working on the line, in passing coming to or leaving work, or in the break room, he always had a smile on his face. Keeping a simple smile on your face is very hard to do when life’s struggles beat you down daily. We talked about problems and concerns he dealt with and I advised him on things, but even knowing his struggles, I wondered how he could still smile through it all. It was because he had a humble spirit and believed that eventually, everything would be alright. As I did with everyone else, I shared the love of God with Hubie and assured him I would be praying for him always and hoped he trusted in God himself. He was always respectful of my beliefs and told me he appreciated me talking to him and being a friend. Hubie was a joy to be around and always brought some laughter to a conversation. I am praying for all his family and friends you and hope you lean on God for comfort and strength. Feel free to contact me through my email if you need anything- even to talk.

Uncle Don and I remember the good times we had over 20 plus years. You helped me learn how to use my computer. I so appreciate that because now I can write "we loved our time with you and Sara. You have such a great family... a daughter and a son." You have passed but will always be remembered.

Dear Jason..I will never forget the first week I moved into the court..the summer before 8th grade..you would ride your red 10 speed bike around curious about the new neighbor..me..we were inseparable for years after..I was "Huberts girl" all through high school..and even though we parted we still remained friends..you were always the first to text me on my birthday every year ( this year will be hard).. we would joke and sometimes disagree..but we always remained in eachothers corner..I think it's rare to love a person so much just for being in your life..a person that has shared your ups and downs..that was you Jason..I thank you for all of our conversations throughout the years..I can honestly say I love you for just being you..A truly great man! I will miss my friend and I will continue to hold our story high..always
