Jason was a humble, quiet, gentle man, who loved to laugh and reminisce with his friends and family. He was known at the Drag Strip as Racin’ Jason, driving his Chevrolet Malibu “Thumper”. He was also known as the crew chief for Testy Racing and was proud to send the 36’Chevy or the 55′ Chevy down the track. Jason enjoyed watching Dean on the soccer field, or Jared running anything with a motor, marching with the Cadets or on the ball field. He was proud of his boys, and enjoyed the special times sharing American Graffiti, Hot Rod, songs of the Beach Boys or turning it up to AC/DC.
