    Jodi and Jessie, I have no words to help relieve the pain, but I offer my prayers of the comfort that only God can give. I have many memories of watching Jason with his Grandpa packing up the fishing gear, watching him ride his bicycle around PPMC, and then driving his own truck! He was a thoughtful young man who was helpful to me...cherish the good times! 🙏

    Jodi, words can't express my sorrow to you and your family. I'm sure Jesse will miss his brother horribly, too. What a handsome son he was who will shine on in your heart. It's so tragic, so unfair. You have been through so much. I send my condolences and wish you strength. Connie Curry
