He was a member of Mary of the Immaculate Conception Parish and the Waite Park Rifle Club as well as other hunting and fishing organizations.

Jason was an avid hunter and outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting, fishing, hiking and the great outdoors. Above all he treasured spending time with his family and friends. He will be remembered for always lending a helping hand, his gratitude for kindness shown and his hard work ethic. He will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered as a husband, father, son, brother, grandson, uncle, son-in-law and friend.
