Jason was one of my first friends as an adult. Spending time with him and watching him play the drums was like watching someone fly! He LOVED it. He could sing and was an awesome was his humble attitude about it that made it even better!

There are people in your life that make you a better person and add immeasurable happiness by being part of your life. Jason: I was fortunate enough to not only be your friend, but your sister for a bit also. My children had an awesome uncle because they had you. Thank you for being one of the 7 people I know I will meet again in heaven one day. Sebastian: you are the greatest thing your dad ever did! He loved you like nothing else! He will always be with you and I know he was always wanting to be the best for you.

Amy: Jason always knew you loved him and were in love with him. What a gift you gave eachother in Unwaivering love and an awesome example for Sebastian.

Ellie, Owen and I love you Jason. We are praying for everyone left behind because a world without that smile, that voice and that kind of love is just not as good today as it was yesterday!
