Jason spent his early years in Fostoria, OH attending St. Wendelin Catholic School. At age 11, his family moved to Angola, IN, where Jason grew up and met many of his lifelong friends. He graduated from Angola High School in 1993. Jason was a 1997 graduate of Miami University in Oxford, OH with a degree in Manufacturing Engineering Management. He was a Sales Account Manager for Sensata Technologies. Jason attended Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church.
Jason was a friend to all and made every room better when he walked in it. To know him was to love him. He loved golf, traveling, spending time with friends and family, being outdoors, and food, especially sandwiches.
He had a magnetic personality that drew others to him and told stories with such passion and enthusiasm that others couldn’t wait to hear them. His heart knew no limits and his generosity was unmatched. Jason had a very close relationship with his mom and cared for her every need during her battle with cancer. He was a friend and devoted son to his dad, a loyal protector to Tisha, a role model to Savannah and Kane, a bright light in his friends’ lives, the best dog daddy imaginable to Rudy, and simply everything to Trish. Numerous people call Jason their best friend, and the amount of high-quality, close friendships he had is unparalleled by many.
Jason’s loss is heartbreaking to all who knew him, but the memories of him will live on forever in the hearts of the massive amount of people who loved him. Everybody who knew Jason has a favorite “Branny” story, and those will be shared and remembered fondly for years to come.
