    Jason was a good friend to me back in the day. While time and distance caused our friendship to ebb, he still meant a lot to me. The world is a sadder place without him.

    Jenna- we are all so deeply sorry to hear of Jason’s passing. We all have many fond memories of him from childhood and will keep you and the rest of your family in our prayers. With love, the Hunnicutt and Taylor families
