I drove a fork lift for Jason's line, 4400, at Faurecia, in Columbus, IN. There would be times when things would be slow, and we had some great conversations. Very poignant. He shared his love of landscaping, and of some of the incredible work that he had done. He could recite the LATIN description of dang near every form of plant in the world. Amazing ! He loved nature. We would share our frustrations at working in a factory. We are both in unison that this is not the place for Jason to be.

When he chose to go to New Mexico, I was saddened. It would mean the loss of a friend.

His smile was contagious.

I will keep you in my memory, Jason, for as long as I live. Love you, brother.
