Jason was such an amazing soul. God took him from us way too soon. He was Laurie and Lindsay’s rock and kept his family together through difficult times. He was kind hearted and compassionate. He lit up any room he entered. He was a bright light in our lives and will truly be missed. He will never be forgotten. Until we meet again my friend, we love you! We ask for you to keep his memories alive!
