Not long ago me and family were trying to push my car around the corner and down the alley to the back of the house to work on it and Jason and a friend were riding bikes by us, stopped instantly and helped us. I said "thank you so much, you guys are angels" and I believe that is true even more so now. I could see the beauty of God in his eyes and face that day.

Jason was a good worker for me and I appreciated his work ethic. He had a quirky sense of humor that I liked and he always seemed positive even when things were not going especially well for him. God Bless his Family and I pray he is resting in peace.
