Jason lived his life in fast pace, whether it be any vehicle he was in or jumping to the next adventure. He was such a fun and vibrant person to be around. Jason loved traveling and going to Florida.

He enjoyed writing and journaling just as much as he loved creating jokes. He definitely could have been a comedian one day. Even though he lived his life as a daredevil, he made sure he was there for his family and friends. He was so caring and giving. He put others before himself and that is what made him such a great dad. Riley Anne was his whole world and he loved her more than anyone. She was his person, and his granddog, Atlas, was his baby!
