The memories we have of Jason stem not only from childhood relationships, but also from travel ball with Leah and our daughter, Danielle. While there are many that come to mind, we mostly recall Jason’s fun-loving, sweet spirit that welcomed and included all that were around. His generosity of cooking for the team/parents, along with his witty sense of humor and charisma will forever be in our hearts. Love and prayers to the family. ❤️🙏🏼

One morning I woke up and thought about plowing the back garden. I came home from work and it was plowed. We found out Jason plowed it and we didn't even ask. I referred to him as our garden angel from that day forward! May you rest in peace dear neighbor. Our prayers and deepest sympathy go out to Janet and your family. May you find comfort at this difficult time. We love you!
Maureen, Jerry and Luke

I would like to share my condolences with Janet, Cheryl and the entire mounts family.
As a boy living just around the corner from Cheryl I had the pleasure of spending many days around Jason and family with lots of laughter and love.
Jason and my dad were friends and played softball together so our two families were close.
Jason would always have a joke to share or pointers for me when I played baseball as a youth, and of course life lessons over the years. He would always ask how my parents were doing.

I would go long stretches where I would not see Jason or Janet but when I did, it was like picking up right where things left off and I cherish that to this day!
May our Lord cover you all with his love and grace.
Bob Carr.
