Honoring Jay-Hollywood Halvorson (Pit Boss)

Our beloved cousin Jason "Jay-Hollywood" Halvorson was taken from us on Friday June 7th, 2019.   This is a GoFundMe donation page to help with his funeral and memorial costs. 

The world has truly lost a Giant amongst men.  Jay was extremely kind, hard-working, selfless, passionate in everything he did and brought joy to everyone around him.  He had a BIG personality and an even BIGGER heart.  Everything Jay did was at 110%, including his very successful food truck business, "Texas Q.  Here thousands of people came to know him as "Pit Boss!"  People were drawn to Jay not only for his mouth-watering barbecue but also for his BIGGER than life personality, jokes and one-liners.  Jay is famous for saying, "Never trust a skinny cook."  

Jay's motto in life was, "Hustle hard, non-stop, Dream BIG, Live your Life like there is no tomorrow."  

Jay leaves behind many family, friends, and his beloved pitbull, Nike.  

Jay we miss you, we love you and we thank you for reminding us how to live life to the fullest.  Rest In Peace Jay!

Your family, friends and fans.
