Post a Condolence

Jason was my training officer at the WCJC in Spring 2008. He was quite a mentor and completely took me under his wing, sharing a connection to guitar playing and music. While I’m shocked, saddened to learn of his passing today, he was a genuine soul who gave you his best every day. A pleasure to learn from him, and know him.

My deepest condolences. Jason was my mentor and good friend.

Aaron M Kaszcuk 2019-11-21T20:18:29

Jason’s smile was infectious, and couldn’t be contained as it made everyone else in the room also smile. Full of love and humor he was a great friend, musician and marksman. I traveled across America with him, having some of the best adventures and I will forever miss him. May your family find peace in your passing and know that so many of us will never stop caring about you.

Jason and I went to High School together, we reconnected many years later as coworkers at Winnebago County Sheriffs Dept. He was a great and interesting man and will always be! Always had a great story, made people smile, cared deeply for the well-being of those he knew. Jason will forever be missed. My deepest condolences to you over his loss.

Jason was eccentric in the best way possible. I’ll miss our conversations on weird topics like doomsday preparation and just life in general. He was a loyal friend and he will be missed by many.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. As an Officer who worked for me he could be counted on to get the job done. If he ever had a problem he came to me and we worked it out together. He was definitely in the trenches and always had your back. Will surely be missed. RiP Brother

Blessed to have had the chance to work with Jason. There was never a dull moment when working with him, and although I haven’t seen Jason in a while I still remember conversations we had that got me through some of those long night shifts. Jason was loved by everyone and will be greatly missed. Until we all meet up on the other side, rest easy my friend.
