Jason was my best bud since the late 90's. He was a natural mentor to at-risk youth as a colleague of mine for a dozen years (having preceded me by a couple years at the former Opportunity Farm). In retrospect, "on paper" we were unlikely pals. He knew his football as a fan and player, had more practical skills than I can recount including proficiency with math and computers, masonry and carpentry, hunting and fishing, mechanics and you name it, and could cook like most boys would wish for their moms. He kept up his weight training when healthy.
Despite not having such things in common, and his being younger by a dozen years or so, he always accepted me and others as they were and found comradery as a true friend to many. And, of course, was always the pet lover.
Jason battled past demons and beat them with the resolve of someone who prioritized being a beloved, and loving, son, brother, uncle, and friend. His courage, without complaint, facing so very many health issues over the years was simply admirable.
Jason, you were the give you the shirt-off-your-back and unassuming guy's guy and I will dearly miss you. My wife and I extend our condolences to a most loving and caring family.

Jason, you were a mentor and a friend. I was blessed to know you and I am thankful to have been able to work under your supervision at Opportunity Farm. You have touched many lives. We haven't spoken in decades, aside from a few messages on social media, but your impact on my life lives on today, I still tell all you dad-jokes, and laugh harder than the people I tell them to every time because you were the one that told them to me. What holds up your buckin' hat? I am thankful to know that you are in the arms of Jesus now. Until we meet again...
