Jason Lee Streich I
July 30, 1984 ‒ November 09, 2006
Mount Gilead, Ohio
Jason Lee “Jay” Streich I, age 22, of Mount Gilead, died unexpectedly on Thursday morning, November 9, 2006, from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident.
He was born in Edmonton, Kentucky, on July 30, 1984, the son of Rickey (Theresa) Streich I of Oak Hill, and Darla (Edward) Hildebrand of Mount Gilead. Jay moved to Morrow County in 1992, and later graduated from Northmor High School in the Class of 2003, and Pioneer Technical School where he studied to be an automobile mechanic.
On June 25, 2005, Jason married the love of his life, his “soulmate,” Toni (Stewart) Streich, after dating for over five years.
With a wrench in his hand nearly every day, Jason would normally be found either in his garage, Autozone, or with a group of his friends supping up cars in the “Nuclear Underground.” Jason lived for fixing up cars or motorcycles, his favorites being a Dodge Neon Expresso or his ZX 750R Kawaskaki Ninja.
Jason will be remembered for the love he shared with his children, as they enjoyed jumping on the trampoline together, “killing monsters,” or teaching them to fix cars. He will also be thought of for his unique love for ketchup, using it on everything, “even pancakes.”
Jason had attended the New Life Assembly Church of God in Mansfield, and was a member of the Mansfield Y.M.C.A.
In addition to his wife and parents, Jason will be missed by his two sons Jason “Baby J” II and Ty Streich of home; two brothers Rickey (Nicole) Streich II of Cardington, and Jonathon Streich of Mount Gilead; two sisters Christina and Lisa Streich of Mansfield; paternal grandmother Denice Dirks of Mansfield; maternal grandfather Paul Edwards of Wabash, Indiana; step-grandmother Marjorie Hildebrand of Mansfield; three step-sisters Brittani, Andreea and Chyanne Hildebrand; mother-in-law Iva (Francis Jr.) Drake of Chesterville; father-in-law Kenny (Mary) Stewart Sr. of Marion; six brothers-in-law Ben Jr., Ryan, and Troy Stewart, Jessie Drake, and Chris and Paul Stackhouse; four sisters-in-law Erica Drake, Jenna Stackhouse, and Ashley and Mary Sirback; cousins David and Ryan Streich; special friends Ethan Newson, A.J. Lupica, Timmy Stewart, Alan (Erica) Creech, Paul Cochran, and Matt Myers; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
The family will greet friends from 4 – 8 p.m. on Tuesday at the Snyder Funeral Home, 76 South Main Street, Mount Gilead, where funeral services will be held on Wednesday at 11:00 a.m., with Pastor Phil Alden officiating. Burial will follow at Shauck Cemetery in Johnsville.
