Jason, your words of inspiration, hope and kindness were invaluable to me. How I loved watching you find humor in so many little moments... the way your eyes would light up and sparkle when you were talking about your art! You are, and always will be, sorely missed, my friend. see you on the other side.....

Jason showed up in everyone's life with something to offer, and we are all better for it. His gifts were inclusivity, encouragement and a hearty laugh. I'm sure that Jason coined the term "Taco Tuesday", but will never get credit.
I thought I was the only person that Jason made feel special by looking them in the eye & telling them that they were a good person. Thats just the way Jason made everybody feel. Jasons superpower was the way he made people feel about themselves & his impact on the recovery community will be felt for years to come.

I can't believe I'm here, writing this to you, Jason. I'm so grateful after 6 years of social media contact (in those first years almost daily!!) I FINALLY got to be face to face and get the biggest bear hug. You are a master hugger!! First in LA then 2 weeks later I flew to Kansas and got to learn hair stuff from you but most of all, hear you share your story and your heart. I'm SO glad you joined us girls for dinner that night in LA. We were a real family in our hearts but never face to face!! That HAD to happen and did, thank God! I adore you, love. The only man I've ever known kinder than you is Jesus Christ Himself. Being there with you will be amazing, Sweet One. ❤❤❤

One of my earliest childhood memories is playing in Papa and Grandma’s backyard, jumping off of Tiger’s doghouse. You split your shorts and turned them into a skirt. We all laughed until we cried.

You are the first of the cousins to go, and you aren’t supposed to be gone yet, Jason. You just aren’t. I pray you are finally able to see the good you brought to this world. I pray you are finally able to see you did have a purpose in being here. I pray you finally see how very loved you were. And most of all, I pray your soul is finally at peace.

In a world that seems to be growing harder & meaner, Jason was an example of seeing the best in it. He was such an imposing figure that at first I made the mistake of being intimidated by him. It only took one conversation to realize that he exuded hope & kindness; he was the kind of person I wanted to be more like.

Oh Jason, I am just completely heartbroken that you are no longer here with us. You and I have been friends for a very long time. I will miss your smiling face, positive attitude, and twisted sense of humor that only people with the same sense of humor would understand. I hope you knew just how much you were loved. I've read the beautiful comments left on your Facebook page, and this memorial page. So many people loved you, but honestly what's not to love? You were a beautiful soul!!! Thank you for all the laughs, for the talks, for being such a great friend. You always made me feel special, especially with your one of a kind saying.... "If no one has told you today, you're a great woman"....... I will never forget you, and I'll cherish our friendship forever 😰

Rest easy, Jason!!!
