Jason played a very special role in my life. He definitely lived and breathed positive vibes. We were best friends during Junior High and early high school years. Every time he knocked on my door my dad would say "the Fonz is here" and he would just have that grin and giggle. He was always very generous and offered to buy snacks and sodas from Preston's. Whenever his parents weren't home he would always blast the speakers and I remember his favorite song at the time was "summertime." Once we were eating at Hardees and someone stole his GT BMX bike he had just puchased and paid a good amount of money for. He just shook his head and went back to finishing his burger. I remember riding on the back of his 4-wheeler along the ditches in City View to buy cigarettes. We probably walked every square inch of City view. I can't ever recall him being angry at anything. He was an outlaw before I knew what an outlaw was. It only makes sense he was surrounded by good kind-hearted people because he radiated a good spirit. Two decades later I now I understand and know the value of laughter and not caring about material things or superficial stuff.. I am very thankful that I crossed paths with Jason thanks for sharing memories with me as a teenager I will carry your spirit on.

I haven't seen Jason since his Grandmother Jeanne passed away. But he was always a friendly little guy when I did see him. I know he is better off now that he has gone to his Heavenly home. Walk slowly up that path and someday I will catch up with you. May God bless the family at this time. Love you, Aunt Reba

Jason was one of the sweetest, most loving people I know. He would always give me a hug every time I saw him. My sister, Carolyn, and Mike first got together when he was a young boy. She loved him like her own son. He always had a smile and could make you laugh. I am so sad he has gone on, but I know he will be in a much better place and be reunited with his loved ones. Rest in Peace, Jason. Till we meet again.

Anytime Jason was around, I knew I was going to laugh. He was so much fun to be around, silly and ornery and goofy. He had such a kind heart. He will be greatly missed.

Jason has a heart of gold and would do anything for anybody to help them out. He would put you before himself every time. He loved to have a good time and always laughing. He loved his family and he loved his friends. I will miss his calls and random “Jason style visits”. He will be greatly missed and I know he is at peace now and with his best friend Booger. Love you brother! I will miss you💔
