I will always remember your kind words, and excellent sense of humor, and a smile that was contagious.. So glad you got to live a bit of your dreams these last cpl years playing metal up in Bangor.. I'm not surprised to hear that you are much missed among that tribe as well, as you had a way with getting on with just about anyone, and gave everyone you met a chance. Taken far too soon, sadly, but you will never be forgotten. RIP Jason.

I want to extend my most sincere condolences to Jason’s family, friends and loved ones. I did not know him, but I have followed the news articles about him. He truly seemed like a kind and sweet soul. I am so incredibly saddened by his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

My heart goes out to Brenda and Desiree, as I have known them, and Jason since Jason and Desiree were very young. At that time, we were neighbors for a while, and I remember Jason as being a nice kid, always happy, and polite.
Brenda and Desiree have been in my thoughts and prayers.

Gary Thain, Doug Rauch, Jaco Pastorius, Jack Bruce,and Chris Squire, all were icons of the modern electric bass, and all contributed greatly to the expansion of the role of the instrument in modern music. While all of the aforementioned are now deceased, they are doubtless far from forgotten by serious bass afficionados/students of this present time. While I never knew Jason, nor did I hear him play, judging from what I read in the tribute, and how he appeared to be "into" the music in the accompanying photo, I am confident in my belief that he will be far from forgotten by his musical contemporaries, who DID hear him play. More than sincere condolences are sent your way by one who spent a f...air amount of time in the seventies, in the quest for proficiency on the electric bass, and is cognizant of the critical contribution of the instrument to any ensemble. Again, my sincere sympathies are extended to both your family, and to the music family, during this time of great loss.Read more
