Jason has left to cherish his memory of several close friends that he thought of as family. Nick Koon, Jason idealized you. You came into his life at a low time and helped lift him up, gave him purpose to keep going! Even through his tribulations, you were a constant for him. The fishing trips to Nags Head were the highlight of his life in the last few years. We will always be thankful for you showing Jason unconditional friendship and love. Jason was an avid fisherman. He loved the water and tried to spend as much time there catching his favorite fish, the Cobia. He valued his time in Hatteras, he could catch a shark on the beach without effort. Jason was not picky about where he fished if there was a place to throw a line and hook that is where Jason’s heart and soul were at peace. He called it his Church. The river, ocean, and lakes will never be the same again without him.
