My favorite memory of Jason goes way back to when we were living across the street from John, Linda, Jason and Jamie in North Carolina. It was late one night , my 2 elementary school girls were asleep upstairs, my husband and I were downstairs watching TV. We heard this repeated thumping noise coming from upstairs that could have only been an intruder. We called Jason first and the police second. Jason was at our house within seconds. Jason and my husband decided they were going to flank the intruder and crept upstairs and approached my daughter's bedroom where they pinpointed the noise. They sprung on the "intruder" which turned out to be a pile of school books on our daughter's bed that were falling off and hitting the floor! Jason and my husband had a good laugh and huge sigh of relief. That incident epitomized Jason. He was willing to do anything for anyone at any time. He was FIERCELY brave, resourceful, and had an incredible sense of humor. Jason was truly the last person anyone would kick off of an island. He was the son every parent wishes for, an incredibly proud and loving father, a champion for his little sister and her family, a great friend and game watching compadre to his cousins, a dedicated grandson to his Nana and a huge fan of his aunts and uncles.
When I think of Jason, I think of the song "Ain't No Mountain High Enough":
"My love is alive
Way down in my heart
Although we are miles apart
If you need a helping hand
I'll be there on the double just as fast as I can.
Don't you know that there ain't no mountain high enough
Ain't no valley low enough,
Ain't no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you, baby "
Jason will be there when you need him the most, some way, some how. You can always count on Jason. You only have to call his name.
