Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Jason is a kind man and good carpenter. He did good work for us and our church, becoming a friend. He will be greatly missed. The last few years, we would stop by the kitchen at Sun Valley to say hi. When he wasn't busy, he would tell us about his boys. They were his pride and joy!
