Jason was born November, 13 1961 in Copiague, New York to Vincent and Faith Mazzota. He spent his youth in Long Island, New York. He received a two-year degree from Harriman College in Harriman then proceeded to graduate from the University of Florida with a Bachelor's degree in Marketing & Advertising. Jason has won countless awards with his partners and transformed every business he crossed paths with. His work ethic and knowledge were remarkable. He has been a mentor to countless young professionals. Jason was also an amazing artist. Whether it be digital, oils, ink or even a pencil, every piece was crafted with a touch like no other. He was able to incorporate his art into his profession, adding a personal touch for every client. Outside his profession, Jason was the ultimate handy man. No matter the task, it was completed to perfection. He was a surfer, a beach bum, a skateboarder, and a sucker for a good adventure. Jason was a natural comedian and could spark a conversation with anyone, which he did. Everyday was a new opportunity to brighten someone’s day. He would spend his weekends at the beach, collecting antiquities and riding his motorcycle or driving his Jeep. He loved his “toys” and shared his passions with everyone, especially his grandchildren. Jason was a father of four, but his generosity didn’t stop with them. Every friend and family member in his life could count on him to bring sunshine to a rainy day. His ability to share his life experiences and to sympathize helped countless people through difficult times.

Jason is survived by his partner Rhonda Howell; his four children, Jason Mazzota Jr. and his wife Alysha, Paige Mazzota and her partner Micheal Kraft, Chaz Mazzota, Karley Mazzota; two grandchildren Eliza and Theodore, his eldest brother Vincent Mazzota Jr. (Bud) and his wife Ellen, along with his children Kate, Will, Kirsten and Lexi. Jason is also survived by his youngest brother Walter Mazzota, his spouse Amy, along with their children Sofia, Tessa, and Gianna;

He was preceded in his death by his parents, Vincent and Faith Mazzota.

I liked Jason the first time Rhonda brought him to Vermont and to The Villages. He was always so much fun and interesting to be around. I am sure Jason could not possibly have an enemy in the world. He was always so happy and thoughtful, and always had a smile. I am happy I had the chance to meet his family at the Service. The tribute that was presented by his family was outstanding. He will be missed and never forgotten by all. My thoughts and prayers go out to Rhonda and Jason's Family. RIP Jason

The year was 1982. I was a student in the advertising program at University of Florida and a member of the UF American Advertising Federation Competition Team. Our team was up against leading universities around the country with a task of introducing Maxwell House Coffee to a youth audience. We had some great creative minds on the team, but we were sorely lacking in area of graphics. I reached out to some friends in the fine arts program and more than one mentioned this kid named Jason who was producing incredible work. Jason wasn’t hard too find. Turns out he was a fellow surfer and we shared some mutual friends on the UF surf team. To say Jason saved our ass would be an understatement. Thanks to his incredible design work, we won the state completion and place fifth in the nation. It wasn’t until a few years later when I accepted a position with an ad agency that I truly came to appreciate the level of Jason’s work. He was putting out artwork every bit at the agency level while still an undergraduate.
Jay had a genuine enthusiasm for life and this amazing twinkle in his eyes when he got excited. (And he got excited a lot.) He was truly passionate about everything he got his hands on. We both ended up working in the advertising realm in the same town and would bump into each other occasionally over the years. Still the excited kid, still the twinkle.
A few years ago, I approached Jay to see if he would be interested in helping me with a startup company I was putting together. His reply: “absolutely.” We have worked closely together ever since. When it came to business, Jason was always there. But, above all, he was a good friend.
Jay loved his girl Rhonda and his family more than anything. And he was so proud of all of his kids and grand kids. We had lunch a few weeks back and all he could rave about was the upcoming vacation he had planned with his family. And you better believe there was a twinkle in his eyes! Love you and miss you my brother.

Thank you so much for that beautiful tribute video. Tears and laughter coexisted while watching. I can’t believe my beloved Jason is gone. I am terribly sad to miss his memorial tomorrow. I’m sending love and hugs to everyone. I’m left with a lifetime of memories. Memories I will cherish always. My boys will never forget the fun times we had with uncle jason riding go carts, as that was a highlight of every visit we had. He made life a hell of a lot more fun always. As a woman who usually has a way with words, I feel there are no words to describe the depth of loss I’m feeling. I loved you Jason. ❤️

I'm so sad that you are gone. I didn't talk to you all that much after we stopped working in the same office but you were always my go to on computer issues and I know if I needed help with anything you were the guy to call. I will always remember your laugh and smile. Our daily chats about life and relationships. You made every day at the office a good day. I miss our shots of fireball or vodka when Walter was gone. LOL Your personality was infectious and you made every one want to be like you. Life won't be the same without you. Til we met again! Rest in peace my friend. xoxo

Jason was a friend and colleague. He had a passion and talent for marketing that can transform companies. He gave so much to his clients. I will miss our weekly meetings (plus countless texts, emails, and calls) where we accomplished so much but still had time to talk about our families, friends and good times of the week. He was so proud of his children, grandchildren, and his beloved Rhonda. I'll miss you. Thank you for always making me look good.

Jason ..... I will never forget our brief friendship and how much your talent and skills helped my practice to grow and blossom. I’ll miss our having morning coffee chats and your genuineness. You always made me smile with your wit and wisdom. A finer artist, designer and friend could be hard to fine. I’m privileged to have known you and will miss you always. Rest in peace my friend.

Rhonda,
I am so very very sorry and sad to hear about Jason. I will remember his easy going nature and that big smile and laugh he loved to share. He was a good man.
Please know that I am thinking about you and his family and I am sending a big hug and much love to you, sweet girl.

Bud, Walter, Chaz, Rhonda and all the extended Mazzota family, we are all in shock and our hearts are broken with you. The devastation of Jason’s passing is very painful and hard to comprehend. Everyone in my family, Mary, Tom, Michelle, Barbara and myself are praying for you and with you. We all have 40 years of history together and we are here for you now if there is anything we can do. Jason was just the best, always funny, caring, and great to talk with. Sometimes we had years apart, but it always felt like we had just talked yesterday as he was one of the most down to earth people that I have ever known.

There is nothing I can say to ease the pain, but there are two thoughts which have brought me some comfort. First, is that Jason himself would want us to celebrate his life and to keep laughing and caring for each other. And Secondly, that Jason’s spirit was immediately welcomed by Vince and Faith and that they are together in the hands of God.

I had the pleasure of knowing Jason through my NPI Family. A sister chapter that I visited numerous times and Jason was always so welcoming. We always shared a smile, a story and business camaraderie. Your demeanor was such a pleasure to be around. May you touch as many souls on your new journey as you touched here. To the family: Much love as you deal with such a loss and begin to heal.
