We were lucky enough to move in next door to Jason in 2012. Before we even met him, he would mow our yard. I would come home from work and ask my husband when he had time to cut the grass, but it wasn’t him. Once we officially met Jason (more than just the friendly neighborly wave), he told us he knew we both worked and he was retired, so if he had the energy, he’d help with the grass when he could. He loved our dogs, and they loved him. We couldn’t have asked for a better neighbor and we’re going to miss him. Our dogs still stop in his driveway waiting for him to come out and check the mail.

My great uncle Jason was always so much fun to be around. We got to stay with him on a trip to Florida to visit the family when I was 7 and it was one of the best memories I have. Krystal entertained my brother and I and let me follow her around. Uncle Jason went with us to Disneyland and I think about those days all the time. Anytime he came to town I made sure I saw him and gave him a big hug. One of the last full days I got to spend with him, my mom and I went to the stockyards here in Fort Worth where he got to meet my best friend. He was special to me because he was so special to mom. I’m glad I have those memories and his memory lives on in my brother, Jason. I miss him dearly.

Jason will be greatly missed by his Cashmore family in Va Beach. We enjoyed his visits and I will miss our phone calls. He was so good to Charlene and now they will be together again. Our condolences to his family and friends. We will think of him often and cherish. Our memories. Rest well❤️

Uncle Jason has the most uplifting spirit. Growing up, I saw him consistently and he always had so many jokes and was always able to put a smile on anyone’s face. When he met my kids for the first time, he did the same to them. McKenzie was a year and a half old and just adored her uncle Jason. I think this picture perfectly describes uncle Jason and the love he had for all his nieces and nephews and his ability to make them smile no matter what. We love and miss you so much Uncle Jason. Fly High and Rest in Paradise.

Oh Uncle Jason, where do I start. You were there every time I was in Orlando. You drove all the way to Gainesville when my Mom had her surgery. You watched countless bowling tournaments for Wyatt. Words cannot describe the loss. This world is not the same without you in it, without your smile, your laughter. I know you are no longer in pain. I know you are with Dad, Grandma, and all the others who went before you. Love you Uncle Jason, forever and always. Give my Dad a big hug for me.

My Uncle Jason gave and received so much love and happiness. My sincere condolences to our family, his friends and all who knew and cared for him. Our hearts are broken but he would want us to celebrate the life he lived. I love and miss you Uncle Jason.

Please accept my sincere condolences. I worked with Jason at DFAS Orlando. When IT assistance was needed, the dynamic duo of Jason and Marty would show up. He was always so nice and helpful. It was always a pleasure to see his smiling face. May God bless your family and heal your pain.
