    Jason is Free at Last. He’s able to stand tall now
    Able to speak to those family members on the other side of the veil.
    Spencer W. Kimball prophet of God said these special children are guaranteed the Celestial Kingdom. He is now in Paradise awaiting those still he loves so much his wonderful mother Christie & his beloved father Joe that took so great of care of him. When you step through the veil sometime in the future – Jason will be waiting for both of you with hugs & kisses.
    Just think of that grand reunion!

  • You had a smile that would light up the darkest room. One of the purest souls I’ve ever met. You will be deeply missing by every heart you have touched. You were an angel far before leaving this life behind. Safe travels in your next journey. Xoxo until next time my friend.

  • I am so sorry for your loss to the family. As we came to visit my grandmother at the cemetery today, my mom for some reason gravitated to my grandmothers new neighbors. After reading his name I realized the familiarity that when I was in elementary school my mom worked in his classroom at a time and I liked to go and assist my mom with some students off the school bus and also spend time with at recess. My mom and I remembered how Jason was always so pleasant and happy with a smile often on his face! Rest In Peace Jason…our prayers our with your family.
