Jason’s happiest times were spent with his wife and kids and he was the ultimate hands-on Dad, coaching little league and attending all dance recitals.
Jason lit up everyone’s hearts with wit and laughter and he always knew the perfect song to play at any moment. He had a magnetic smile and a “cool” about him that was undeniable. He truly had the biggest heart, always open and loving.
