Jason was a mama’s boy who loved being with his family, especially his daughter and wife.  He loved to do anything outdoors which included fishing and grilling.  He was sarcastic, a free spirit, an animal lover, would talk to anyone and would make friends anywhere he went.  He was a friend to all and an enemy to none.  Jason would do anything for anyone and would never expect anything in return.  He found joy in finding God again after the death of his father.  He is now at home with him and his sister.
