Jason faithfully served the residents of Crescent for more than 20 years as a volunteer firefighter at Crescent Fire Department, rising to the rank of Captain. He also volunteered on the Crescent Ambulance service, working as an EMT for a number of years. Jason loved everything about the fire service and was proud of his contribution to the department. Jason was a devoted father and frequently spoke with pride about his kids and his niece. Jason past away just after noon today, surrounded by family, friends, and his brother firefighters. Despite the pain of our loss, we are joyful in the faith that he has rejoined his dad Curtis and our Heavenly Father.
