Jason was very kind to me when he helped me realize my life long dream of owning an H1 Hummer. I bought Jason's black Hummer in 2012. When I first called him about the truck he went out and took extra photos and even video so I could see and hear it run. We then did the "can I trust this guy" dance on the phone as we worked out a deal. I was immediately put at ease. With out actually seeing the truck, and based solely on his description, I sent him a cheque. He was straight up and totally trust worthy. When I flew to Houston he picked me up at the airport in an old police car he was working on. The Hummer was parked at the Houston Police airfield nearby. Once we went over the truck Jason invited me for lunch but I had 60 hours of driving ahead of me so I declined. I wish I had said yes. years later Jason told me he always wanted to see what the truck could do in the snow. I told him if I we ever got slammed with a Canadian blizzard I would send video... I never did. Another regret.

Although the time I spent with Jason was not great the impact he has had on my life is significant. He sold me a great truck that I will own until the end of my days. I still have the Houston Police Association sticker on the back which will now remain there forever in his honour. Rest in Peace Jason.

Im with a police department in Louisiana and I went to Houston almost a year ago for some training. This is when I met Jason, he was so happy to meet other officers from out of state. He showed me the HPD memorial, there he gave me HPD patches and air support coins. We stayed in touch and talked frequently. It was mostly him trying to recruit me to HPD lol. He was always an ear I could run to when I had a bad day. In the short time I knew him we had many laughs, he even helped me with one of our cases that HPD was involved in. He loved his job, his community and his family. He was always so honored to stand guard at the memorial and do what he could for our fallen. Just a few hours before his crash we got to talk, I told him about our recent officer involved shooting and other tough issues I had during the week. I want to keep reaching out to him but hes not here. He has earned his wings and I know hes watching over all of us.

I was blessed to have worked with Jason in Public Affairs. He was always helpful and kind in everything he did. I will never forget him.

I will pray for him and his family, especially his wife and beautiful children. May the Lord bless and comfort you during this time of grief. You will be in my heart and mind, always.
