“Jason was an amazing son and happy, fun-loving kid who was always smiling. He had a huge heart and loved his family and friends more than anything. He was always there for anyone who needed him! I’m so heartbroken over this! He just had a baby girl on April 1st and he was so happy, proud and excited to be a great father! He was/is loved by so many, and I don’t even have words for how much he will be missed by everyone!”
