Jason enjoyed going to concerts, plays, wrestling matches, going to the movies, going out with his friends and playing corn hole. Jason viewed the world like no other and his photography showed how much he appreciated it. He specifically bought a new phone so to capture better photos, we always knocked him for the android. His word was his bond, he was a comedian at his finest hours. He cherished his time wisely with those he loved and surrounded himself with great energy all while giving us all the great energy he put into our lives. He loved to travel cross-country to see the Red Sox and the Patriots play and spending time with his nieces and nephews.
