Portland fire victim Jason Miller

On Sunday July 23rd an amazing life was tragically and viciously cut short.   My  healthy, happy 42 year old brother, Jason, was murdered while he slept innocently in bed.  Around 3:00 am his apartment in Portland, Oregon was intentionlly set on fire.  Jason was an amazing person- kind, genuine, loving,  good-natured, loyal,  hard-working.  Everything you could ask for in a brother, son, uncle, and friend.  He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it or dobanything for anyone he cared about.   We now need to bring him back home to NJ and celebrate him and all that he has given to us.  Even as I write this, I dislike that I am asking for donations.  This is normally something I would keep as a private matter, but the last few years have been financially challenging for my family and he deserves more than we can offer right now.  If you feel you can offer assistance,  it is very much appreciated.   If you can't,  please just keep our family and his friends in your heart and prayers as we try to grasp this senseless act that has broken the hearts of so many.  Thank you for taking the time to read this <3.
