“There’s a lot of things I can say about Jason,” close friend Drew Virtue said. “One of the things that stands out about him is his faith. Jason had real strong faith. I’m sure he’s up in heaven looking down on us now.” “I never heard a foul word out of his mouth or saw any dumb behavior or a bit of rudeness,” a friend’s mother added. “He was sweet and well-mannered, and this is a big loss.”
