Jason Mackenroth - the power house drummer for Rollins Band from 1998 to 2004 who went on to release two albums with his own band, Mack, and enjoy a long run with Blue Man Group's Las Vegas production, as well as a very passionate drum teacher for many years - passed away on January 3, 2016 in Henderson, NV after a battle with prostate cancer.

Janet (Jaye), Jason's wife of 31 years, is only working part time due to her own medical issues, and the family needs financial assistance with living expenses so they can remain in Las Vegas until the youngest son, Joren, graduates from high school in June 2016. With the loss of Jason's income, this is a real challenge.

Please donate if you're able to help Jason's family. And whether or not you're able to help financially, we hope you'll take some time to experience the passion Jason brought to his work by checking out some of his music:

Hello friends....i just wanted to say THANK YOU for everyone supporting me and my family thru this difficult time. The most important thing for us this year is to stay in Vegas until Joren finishes high school and thanks to ALL your support we will make that happen. Also thank you for all the kind words spoken of Jason and coming to the memorial or being there in spirit. The boys and i are very grateful!

My house in Auburn has some space if you need or want as you adjust to life with Jason gone. I love you Janet... you were amazing to me the first time we met. I dont think ive seen you since The Knitting Factory with Jasons " Welcome Wasted" CD. Please get in touch with me when you are ready for some hot chocolate and friendship. Meanwhile, I am praying for you, your sons and your whole family to heal as much as you can from this heartache . If there is anything else you need support on, let me know. We can always use the band to fund raise. Do not hesitate..message me. As for Jason... may God Bless His Rock n Roll Soul.
