Jeffery “Jason” Young, a resident of St. Gabriel, passed away on August 19, 2019 at the age of 42. Those who knew Jason, know that he lived full throttle.

He was a proud father, who loved spending time with his children, who kept a smile on his face. He was a reliable friend and brother who would drop what he was doing to help others. He was extremely skilled at fixing and building anything. He frequently volunteered to cook (inside or outside). Jason always ensured everyone had a drink in their hand and food on their plate. Jason cooked at the Papa George Jambalaya Cook-off to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus Council at St. Gabriel Catholic Church. Jason will always be known for his ability to make everyone laugh and he will be greatly missed by all who loved him.

Jason was always kind to me. We laughed and talked. He cooked for me, even if he didn’t like to eat what he cooked. Always energetic, a very hard worker, and willing to help.
He loved his children more than anything.
He will be missed.

Jason taught me his McGuyver skills and I taught him peace, love, music and living in the moment. He brought me to the swamp again just like my daddy did. I gave him Wyoming. He loved his babies more than anything.
