Jason Forde

In loving memory of Jason Forde ("40"), we have created this Go Fund Me event in an effort to raise the immediate funds necessary to cover his final affairs and provide ongoing support to his mother who he loved dearly.
 
Jason was a natural giver. His greatest joy was helping others. He learned very early in life how to pour himself into others...It was his genius.
 
Black men are not often allowed or encouraged to embrace their nurturing qualities, but Jason found his purpose in it. He made it his life’s work. He extended himself over and over to make sure people felt cared for and supported and asked for nothing in return. He was an empathetic listener. He was our biggest cheerleader. He was THE most comforting hug you could imagine.
 
If there was anywhere on earth you needed him to be, he would find a way to get there and would likely manage to pick up whoever else needed to be there on his way. Jason was full of sound advice, and empty of judgement. He was overflowing with care, and completely devoid of malice.
 
Jason was gentle. Jason was kind. Jason was thoughtful. Jason was everything you could want in a son, in a brother and in a friend. He left everything he touched better than he found it, because ultimately he left it and us with love and hope.
 
Jason touched so many lives and he did so with utter love and selflessness. He showed children they could be light in an often dark world. He showed his friends the reflection of themselves that they cherished the most. He showed his family, especially his mother, a devotion that they will carry forever.
 
Though the world is now a little dimmer for us, with the loss of Jason, we are forever brightened with our memories of his smile, his laugh, his warmth, and his love. He will be dearly missed.
 
On behalf of Jason's entire family and Proscholars Athletics (“PSA”), we thank you for your kind words, donations and especially for the parts that you played in Jason's life.

*Based on numerous requests from those who would like to support Jason and his family, the family has approved this event to be shared on social media. 

Disclosure: All donations received herein shall be hand delivered to Ms. Thelma Forde whom this fundraiser is the intended recipient. Please note my relationship to Thelma is a close family friend.
