He loved rock climbing, snow skiing, golf, water sports, biking…anything outdoors. He was always up for the next challenge. Jason had a great sense of humor, loved his family, and was ever so kind to his cousins, nieces and nephews. People loved being with Jason. He was patient and sensitive to the needs of others. He understood the purpose of life and believed that we will all be together again. Until then, Jason, we love you and we will miss you.
