I went to SWIC and Launch Code with Jason. He was the smartest person I ever met. His knowledge of computers awed me. And he was so funny and so kind... I wish I could have seen him again. Debbie, I'm so sorry for your loss. Being a catholic myself, Jason and I had some great conversations. So I will end with this. The one thing I know for absolute about what happens when we have to leave this world is that the ones who loved us, will miss us. I will miss him dearly as I'm sure everyone who knew him will. God bless and give strength to all his family and friends and of course, may God bless my friend Jason.
