Jason leaves behind an enormous legacy across multiple time zones and extended families. He was an avid athlete and gamer, participating competitively in soccer and billiards. He loved ice skating, volleyball, chess, various tabletop games, and card games. Having the ability to learn anything he put his mind to, Jason was a natural at everything he attempted. Known as “Weasel” to his friends, he could make you believe any bad idea seemed, not only like a good one, but as if it was yours. He loved working in the trades and could swing a hammer with the best of them. Among his many talents was Arbor Maintenance, where he combined his love of the outdoors with climbing trees. He was an All-Star in the service industry and received many accolades during his time tending bar, serving tables, and perfecting recipes in the kitchen.
Another of Jason’s biggest passions was supporting the depression and addiction communities. He worked tirelessly with love in his heart, both on his own recovery and that of others. He was a trusted and powerful presence among those who needed this support the most.
Mass is being held at 10:30 am Saturday, May 13, 2023, at St. Michael the Archangel, 1 W. Wilhelm St., Schererville, IN 46375. Rev. Martin (Marty) J. Dobrzynski is officiating. It was Jason’s way to celebrate life in full living color, therefore, his wish was that we do not wear the typical black attire. Jason’s family is having his Celebration of Life Luncheon immediately following mass at Lencioni’s Pub, 3325 Glenwood Dyer Rd., Lynwood, IL 60411. Come celebrate with us.
