Jason was full of energy, and everyone who knew him could feel his love for life, music, good food, and his children. He was always the first person to crack a joke and his humor and mood-making ability is unmatched. He was a very loving father and loved unconditionally. He was very passionate about cooking, and he loved trying new recipes and going to restaurants with diverse foods. As many people know, he was also a great singer and loved singing whenever he got the chance. He will live on in the songs that make you think of him. He will be missed by so many people, but he will always be here in spirit.
