As a child, Jason was attracted to video games and electronic devices.

He was the technical partner for the Unique Blends DJ Service that provides music, lighting, and photo booths at events. His casual lifestyle was characterized by his tie-dyed attire and, as part of the Unique Blends brand, Jason created tie-dyed clothing for sale. He was truly in his element tromping through the woods seeking mushrooms and fishing in numerous area lakes and streams. Jason’s personality was a unique blend, itself.
