He became very successful in the poker world.

Jason met the love of his life Rebecca in July 2010 and they have been together ever since and shared a bond that was like no other. When they saw each other, time stood still. They took their vows seriously, and when they said till death do us part, they meant it. They were best friends, soulmates and they had an infectious love for one another. Together they had a miracle baby named Isabella.

He loved his four children dearly and was a doting father.

He is also survived by a host of friends and extended family members who loved him dearly for his big heart, gregarious personality, and larger-than-life presence. The family wishes to acknowledge Jason’s special bond with lifelong friends Xavier Smith, Daryle Holley, and Michael “Ruzzo” Valarezo.
