Those who knew Jason best knew that his energy and passion for life were non-stop. He was always up for an adventure, whether it was moving to Colorado to live amongst the mountains, going on extreme hikes (he completed a total of 36 "14ers"), enjoying a ballgame, or brewing really great beer. You may have seen him as a special guest on the local news discussing beer pairings while catching popcorn in his mouth. Jason was larger than life and his infectious smile lit up every room he walked into. His sense of humor was unparalleled, and he made everyone who met him feel like they’d known him forever. We admired him for living out his dreams, and he inspired us to chase our own.
We will all greatly miss our grizzly-bearded, beer-brewing buddy, and the role he played in our lives. But of his many roles, none were as important to him as being the loving husband to Leanne and proud father of Ellie, Clive and Otto. With Jason’s shocking and unexpected passing, his family now has the staggering task of keeping things in order as they navigate a new reality. As you can imagine, the family is grieving right now at this unthinkable loss. Though we are unable to relieve Jason's family of these emotional burdens, we can come together and help support them financially in this trying time.
With your donations we hope to help Jason's immediate family through this. In the short-term, funding can be used for their everyday expenses like monthly bills and groceries. Ultimately, the hope would be that we can raise a substantial enough amount to help with the kids' education or start a foundation/scholarship in remembrance of Jason's legacy.
Thank you for your generous show of love and support. We hope to see everyone at Jason's celebration of life when practical given the pandemic restrictions.
