Jason was a free spirit, he was adventurous and lived in the moment. He had many passions in life, especially traveling. He loved nature and the outdoors. He loved to experience different places, cultures and foods, he was definitely a foody, would try anything once. He was very athletic, loved skiing, loved to ride a bicycle and an electric scooter, going on hikes, camping, cooking. He attended countless concerts at his favorite venue which was Red Rocks in Colorado. He was a talented and hard worker, a perfectionist, he was a critical thinker and always going outside the box. His conversations, his sense of humor, his style, he loved to have any occasion to dress up. Jason had the loudest sneezes, that shook the house and we felt them to our core. His laughter will never be forgotten. He was a sweetheart of a son and grandson, he loved us all with his whole heart. It was important to make lasting memories with all his loved ones.
Jason had plans to go on a mission within a year to a third world country to build homes or drill for well water. He was such a giving soul and took every opportunity to help or give to those less fortunate.
The most painful tears are not the ones that fall from your eyes and cover your face. They are the ones that fall from your heart and cover your soul.
