My thoughts are with you all, especially Christy. Make sure you let her know for me, John.

Jason was a really great guy, for those of you who never met him. I had the privilege of spending a couple days and nights sharing a cabin with him and Christy in LaPine this spring, as well as offroading with him and helping him unstuck the wagon. He will be missed.

I have had the pleasure of a couple of offroading trips with Jason and John in Oregon. Jason's sense of humor will be missed. He is the kind of guy, there's one in every club, I bet, that is just a little crazy, willing to push the envelope and most likely to tip his rig or get real stuck. And he wasn't pizzed off about it more likely he'd have some funny things to say. I made a DVD of the footage from our LaPine, OR trip and the funny stuff was all Jason. I said over and over that I wanted Jason to be in every video I make from then on--just because he had so much charisma. My thoughts are with Christy and the baby. Sory I'm too far away to make it over Friday, but I'll raise a toast to Jason.

I don't think there could be a more likeable person than Jason. I went for a ride in his rig during WCSS III and we talk for a long while about many things including his passion for Off-roading his wagon. Later in the day he almost flipped us (but that is another story).

I was down there on Thursday, and even though, he had recently been in a bike accident, he was still very chipper.

Though he did not get many chances to get online, his work that he did with John, and the club in Eugene makes him truely a part of this community. I have had a chance to see a few items that he worked on at John's and his work with exhaust can be truely called custom. I know he helped John out when they were first designing lifts and exhaust work.

John, please send my condolences to Christy, I am going to try and make it down, but if I can't I will be there in spirit.

CRAP! There are so many who deserve something like this. Why the Hell does it have to happen to such a great guy?

I'll smoke one for you my friend and pass it to you in spirit.

Yeah Tim, your son was actually riding with him when he tipped his subaru (see picture attatched above). I remember when he did that, we were following behind him on the trail. And your son, tim, jumped out of the car with this HUGE grin on his face. Jason was laughing and having a great time.

Truly sad news. It is a shame that things like that happen during hunting seasons. Usually 3-4 hunters are killed here in Michigan every year. They always call it "an accidental shooting". I say "BULL". More often than not, the one who does the shooting, just shoots at a noise with no idea of what is making that noise. I have never gone out hunting, mainly just for that reason. Always wanted to try bow hunting. Got all the gear around to do so. Was going to go out after work. Heard on the radio that someone was "accidently" shot and killed while bow hunting. Again, I say "BULL". If you can't clearly see what you're shooting at, why the hell are you shooting. Sounds wreckless to me, so why do they call it accidental?

My thoughts and sympathy go out to his family and friends...........

I really don't know what to say, I'm in shock.

I still remember when I met him at the Labor Day Run last year. It was great fun, and very dusty!

Jason is a great guy, and I know will be missed.

I could probally vent out a lot of thoughts and memories, but I'm sure Andrew and I will be there friday.

So, I'll close by saying Jason, Godspeed, and don't have too much fun 4x4'n in the clouds.

Wow. That sucks. I liked Jason, he was a real friendly guy. I still laugh at him having to pull Tim out of the muck at Thurston ORV a few years back. Tim's wagon was so screwed, stuck up to the door well's and Vicki (?) just sat in the passenger seat laughing and observing all of us try to get him out. (Tim standing in 2 ft of clay mud...)Then along came Jason and his wagon to yank him out... ( I think he helped fix the water pump to before Tim and the family went back home....?)

Sorry you lost a good friend John, I know how much of silent partner he was, and I know you guys did a lot of work together.

I obviously will not be able to make it to Oregon, but have a good time getting together and enjoy other folks' friendship. After all you never know when it will end. My wife and I will keep his family in our Prayers.

And the thing I remember about Jason is that all out laugh/grin attitude that he had about everything.

Jason was truly hilarious and loved his Subaru.

This is truly a half mast day on the board.

Although I only met him briefly at WCSSIII, I found him very likeable. I share everyones thoughts about him also. Its a tragedy to be taken away so sensesly, and just when he was starting a family. We will be thinking of him and his family, please get us the addy for the Bank, John.

Yep, he was quite a character..heh, he acted like the tipping accident pictured above happened all the time (it was easy pulling him out, we wanted to go play some more).

Terrible shame. He was a good guy.
