A Little About Jason...
Jason was a hard working, driven, competitive, charismatic and energetic person. He loved people and had a passion for connecting people to the world around them and helping others be the best they could be. Humor was key for him. He made us all laugh and smile all the time. He always told his coaches and friends "I got you" and he meant it. If you needed anything, he would be there to help you. Jason worked as an On Air Radio host for NBC 1060 radio and as a special features correspondent for Channel 12 NBC Phoenix. He was also very passionate about football. He played for Chaminade College Prep and then completed 5 years of participation on the Arizona State Sun Devils Football team. While he started as a walk-on, his hard work and dedication soon earned him a scholarship. Unfortunately, it was football that led to his untimely death. He was suffering from CTE Stage 2 with 9 legions of CTE throughout the frontal lobe of his brain.
Jason created his only blog which you can see here, "Excuse My Moderation." We will deeply miss his energy, passion, smile and desire to make a positive difference to his friends and to the world in general.
