The loss of a great guy.
 
Don't know if it's gotten over here but here are the links.
RIP Jason (willyswanter).

There is a post regarding donations. The family doesn't want flowers and they say Jason wouldn't want them either.

Why is it that I'm suddenly reminded of poo in the face and RJ's cartoons?:)

I sent an email to Shorts and Shaggy has been in contact with me. The guys on CK5 should have notified RJ by now.:(

As I told Andrew earlier in email, completely shocking news. He's one of those guys that you'd never expect to go. Heck, I'm sure if he knew he was on his way out he could fabricate a part for every piece of himself and live forever - he was that damn good.

Jason contributed a lot to the forum with his knowledge and friendliness. Very successful guy all around. He'll be missed, that's for sure.

I got news over on FSC.com .... I was completely shocked... I'm really sad.

Kinda sad it takes something like this to get me back here to ORC since I migrated over to CK5. Jason was a great guy who was always willing to answer a question in a pm or a thread even if it was just a small trivial thing.

The world we live in is just one notch lower without him around.

Holy hell, this is tragic. Drowned...damn-it. He was only like 4 months older than me, this is horrible.

Here's a quote that Jason's brother just posted on Colorado K5 - Full-Size GM 4x4 Restoration and Off Road Community :

I remember when I first stumbled onto this site. He had a 2wd pickup and wheeled that thing all over the place. I was jealous when he got that crew cab, look what that turned into. Jealous to say the least.

I remeber that old chevy with the baja claws he bitched about. Then the crewcab came and it was on from there. He was a great guy that will be missed by all who new him and even some that just knew of him.
