  • Tina, Bob and Janet, as a father of four boys myself, I cannot image what you all are going through right now. Growing up on Robert Ulrich Avenue has so many memories for all of us. Although I was the oldest, we all played outside every night, at least till Chucks yard light went on, we all remember that one. I felt like I was Jason, Bret, Brian and Charlie’s big brother. Those were simple times and good times! So many memories come back to me that I had forgotten, one of them being the break dancing on the cardboard in our driveway. One of the things that stands out though is Jason solving the Rubick’s cube. We were all blown away, I had to take the thing apart to solve it. Jason was without a doubt smarter that all of us. Jason and your family will will live on with us that grew up on Robert Ulrich Avenue forever! God Bless.

  • My thoughts and prayers are with you, Jan and Bob and family. I know all of us back here in Pinehurst, NC will be with you in spirit at this most difficult time.

  • I am crying as I read the comments. So many people cared about Jason. I can still see him toddling down the driveway as he started walking. Be with the angels Jason. Love, Charlie and Mike’s mom (Mary Gutman)

  • Bob,Janet, and Tina
    I can’t put into words how sorry I am for the your loss. I have a lot great memories growing up on Robert Ulrich and Jayson (The Boom) is a huge part of those memories! I have two kids in a similar neighborhood that we grew up in but I don’t see these kids playing like we used to! I realize now how lucky we were to of had such a great group of guys to grow up with!
    Rest In Peace Jayson

  • My heart aches for you. I am so sorry and wish I was next door to give you a hug. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers.

  • Janet, Bob , Tina
    I was so sorry to hear of Jason’s death. I’ll keep you all in my prayers.

  • Bob, Janet and Tina
    My heart is broken. I have such fond memories of Jason. We had a lot of fun in Robert Ulrich. I have to say that I have had a flood of memories of both Jason and Brett the last few days. The three of us were the 1990 class of Robert Ulrich. Jason was at my house the night our chimney caught on fire. I am pretty sure Jason and I watched the 1980 miracle on ice in my 13” black and white TV. One of the Ingles mentioned breakdancing and I remember Jason, Mike and I taking breakdancing classes. There are so many memories that I could probably write a book. It is sad that we have all lost touch, considering the last time I saw Jason was at Brett Oliver’s funeral. I did my best to keep track of Jason by visiting with Bob and Janet at least once a year when I visited my parents in Pinehurst NC. Jason was a free “Bird” and although he has his faults he was a kind, unique and fun friend. He was a lifelong friend that I will think about often.
