August 2, 1988 - November 20, 2021
Jason joined his family, parents John and Pam, and his sister, Lauren, on August 2, 1988, in Loveland, CO. He attended Loveland schools, graduating from Thompson Valley High School in 2007. He was a successful student but attended school more for athletics and friendships. He thrived on playing sports and shared his unique blend of competitiveness with an ability to see what was about to happen before it did with his teammates. This gift of seeing what needed to be done was applied to every area of his life and work, living by the mantra "Work smarter, not harder!"
Jason was critical of human nature, but made a positive impact on everyone he met and befriended. He would give you the shirt off his back and walk the extra mile with you depending on your need. He always had the time to listen to his friends’ concerns and to provide insights and necessary truths that helped them deal with their challenges. His friends were touched by his constant care for their wellbeing. His smile lit up a room and his sense of humor could lift your spirits. Offended by grandeur and slander, he searched for truth and honesty in all things regardless of how dark or difficult those realities may be.
Jason had both a profound and profane spiritual nature. He sought the answers to his questions through his study of philosophy and psychology, and equally through his experiences in the dark alleys of life. It was there he found candid insights to life and death, and would share his understanding through his writing and poetry. He recently shared these philosophical gems that give definition to who Jason was: Those who are able to see beyond the shadows and lies of their culture will never be understood, let alone believed by the masses by Plato and But luxury has never appealed to me, I like simple things, books, being alone or with someone who understands by Daphne de Maurier.
An excerpt from his writings captured his adventurous and sometimes dangerous spirit.
Let's flirt with death
And live on high
Not break a sweat
When we start to die
At your funeral
We will wear white
Cuz’ you lived your life
Jason passed away unexpectedly on November 20, 2021 in Louisville, Kentucky. He leaves behind his mother and father, his sister, her husband, Dusty, his nephew, Bodhi, and his niece, Evia. His two rescued Australian shepherds, Shelby and JD, provided years of joy, entertainment and companionship. Jason referred to himself as “the dog whisperer”. He loved every dog he met, and they loved him.
