Jason's presence had a way of constantly rubbing off joy, smiles and laughter. He didn't have to try either, it was just a natural part of him. He was one of the nicest people I've ever met, and anyone in life that crossed paths with him was fortunate to have had the honor.

I'll miss playing tennis with ya buddy.

I have only know Jason for 2 or 3 years, but we became the best of friends. Jason exhibited exceptional technical skills, he was always willing to compete at playing golf, and he was always willing to assist others.

I will miss my friend dearly and getting to know his exceptional family.

Jason, I promise to finish the ice chest on my deck!

Love Ya Man!

It was such a shock to hear about Jason - I had recently seen him in the hall, showing a 'selfie' that Savannah had taken, so proud of her.
Jason always had a smile for everyone and was willing to help. He will be missed.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

My thoughts and prayers to Jason’s family. It was such a pleasure to have worked with Jason who was always so easy to work with, so willing to share knowledge, and so full of creative ideas for solutions. He will certainly be missed by his IP family.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Smith family. Jason always had kind words to offer and when you saw his infectious smile down the halls of IP you couldn't help but smile too. God be with you.

My condolences to the family.
I live in California & in the few in person meetings & over the phone discussions Jason & I had at IP he was always kind, generous, & eager to help. In person I enjoyed the funny discussions we would have about technology with his laughter and smile being very contagious. He will be greatly missed by his IP family.
