My sincere condolences to Jason's family. I met Jason in Jr. High and we remained very close friends throughout high school and stayed in contact when we were in college. I was at NDSU but came down frequently to the Cities and we would meet up. Jason had an amazing heart and the news of his passing hurts mine I lift his family and other loved ones up in prayer.


To Jason’s family: Jason was part of our family and he will be missed dearly. I don’t know all of what was going on with Jason, but I pray he is safe with our Lord. I pray for healing for you and your family as you are dealing with the loss of Jason. He had such a great spirit and calmness about himself.
