I taught Jason at St. Athanasius School in the seventh and eighth grades. Jason was an excellent student and was always so nice and polite. His pleasant personality made him a joy to have in the classroom.
I still have a lovely Christmas decoration that he gave me as a present. I will cherish that gift more than ever this year as I remember him fondly.
Peace and blessings to you as you mourn his death and cherish the memories of his life.
