Unexpected Death of Loving Husband and Father of 4

It is with great sadness that a loving husband and father, Jason Nicholson, unexpectedly passed away on October 7, 2020. 

Jason left behind a loving wife, Melisa Nicholson, and their 4 young children, Alana, 12, Pearin, 11, Phoenix, 8, and Flynn, 6. 

Jason lived his life with enthusiasm, commitment and love. His passion for wildlife and horticulture was second only to his love for his family and friends. Jason was loved by many and left a positive impression on the lives of everyone he came into contact with. His love of life was contagious. 

With all of the emotional pain and stress that a death brings, it also brings financial burden on the loved ones that are left behind. Jason worked very hard to support his family and was the main financial provider for his household. 

We are trying to raise funds for Melisa and their beautiful children to help with any costs that they will incur as a result of Jason's unexpected passing and to help wherever needed.

As a family and community, we want to come together to ease any stress on Jason's family caused by outstanding costs of the funeral, and to help provide some financial support to Melisa as she and her family adjust to life without Jason. 

It is in these times of loss and sadness when you see people coming together to help one another make it through, to support the people we love and care for.

Jason and Melisa's family are thankful for any support you may be able to provide. We also encourage everyone to keep this family in their thoughts and prayers.
