And many cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.

Jason will be remembered by his contagious smile that lit up every room, his one of a kind personality, and the unending love he showed to everyone he met.  Jason never met a stranger and he would give you the shirt off his back. That’s just the person he was.  He was an outstanding athlete. He loved to play football, basketball, softball, and golf.  Jason played in a co-ed softball league in Knoxville.  The team’s name was ‘Where my Pitches’.  He was a frequent golfer and had a gift of gold. Jason could sell anything. He was a car salesman for years and had the dream to one day open his own car lot.

He was a member of Cowan Chapel United Methodist Church located in Kingston, TN where he was a member of the choir and loved to sing. He couldn’t hold a tune, but he would sing anyway and that’s what made him so much more special.

The family will receive friends Friday, June 25 th from 4:00-7:00pm at The Grove at 2150 Kingston Hwy in Kingston with the funeral services to follow. Burial and graveside service will be held at Oak Grove Cemetery on Saturday, June 26 th at 11:00am. Anyone that would like to can meet at Roane County High School at 10:00am on Saturday.
