Jason was an excellent father, husband and one of the most genuine officers I have ever met. I am so proud to say that I had the opportunity to serve with Jason for over 5 years. The honor that he brought to the badge everyday will live on in each and every officer he worked with and every person he touched throughout his years. I hope you enjoy."
