He leaves behind his daughter, Vanessa Williamson; his mother, Dottie L. Williamson (Walter Saylor); his father, Gary L.

Jason was born in Marion, Ohio to Dottie L. Williamson and Gary L. Williamson on December 31, 1976. He attended the Ridgedale School system and graduated from Ridgedale High School in 1995. He most recently worked as a 911 dispatcher for the Franklin County Sherriff’s Department.

In his spare time, Jason enjoyed tormenting family and friends with his wickedly sharp sense of humor, usually delivered via Facebook. He loved his Ohio State Buckeyes; his four-legged partners in crime, Lilly and Holly; and of course his pride and joy, his daughter, Vanessa.

Over the past few years, Jason was living with C.O.P.D. and memorial contributions can be made in his honor to the C.O.P.D. Foundation or the charity of the donor’s choice .

In lieu of a traditional viewing and flowers, the family will be hosting a celebration of life on Saturday July 18, 2015 at 4:00 p.m. at 1791 Owens Road West, Marion, Ohio. Wear your favorite Buckeye gear, share a favorite “Jay Story” and remember an all around good guy.

Denzer-Farison-Hottinger & Snyder Funeral Home is honored to have been chosen to serve Jason’s family.
