Jayson Travis Collins, age 34, passed away Tuesday, March 26th, 2013 at Lutheran Hospital while waiting for a Kidney after being diagnosed with end stage renal disease in 2008. He was born in July 20th 1978 at St. Johns hospital in Anderson, and then moved to Tennessee with his family in 1994. He was a Civil Engineer and a Volunteer Fireman which he loved. Jayson was above all Brave, Loving and Very family oriented. He loved old movies; classic cars and his rescue Collie dog, Felix. He loved to sit on the swing on a warm summer day with the sun upon him while enjoying the nature around him. Jayson was preceded in death by his Grandparents Jackson and Joyce Collins of Anderson, and is survived by his loving parents, Stephen and Janice Collins of Tennessee, his only sister Deanne Collins of Fort Wayne and his Grandparents Floyd and Doris Case of Muncie. He is also survived by many Aunts, Uncles and Cousins who loved him.

You've been gone nearly a year already and I still miss you more than words can say. It's always tough on the ones left behind even though I know you're in a much better place than we are! It's a comfort knowing you're still with us, although in a perfect world you would still be here happy, healthy and loved! I will forever miss you and love you with all my heart.
Your Sister, Deanne

My dear Jayson:
It was an honor & pleasure to have you as my special nephew!! You were so loving, caring, generous, funny, compassionate, etc. I wish you wouldn't have had to suffer so much in this lifetime but it helps me enormously to know you are without pain now & soaring with the eagles on the other side. I know without any doubt at all that you are constantly with all of us and watching and helping us on the other side. It was an honor to watch you grow over your short lifetime here on earth. There's not a day that you're not missed here. May you enjoy the greatest joys & happiness where you are now! Aunt Roxie

You and your sister turned out to be beautiful, caring, giving individuals and I have the great honor of being your Mom! For that I am truly thankful! I love you with all my heart, Son, because You're still The Best!!! Mom
