  1. The Banks Family :

    This is not a lost, but a finding. Finding your way back into the arms of your creator. Who among us could expect to reach our appointed destination doing something we loved! What a blessing from on HIGH.

  2. I am so sad to hear of Jason’s tragic fishing accident and passing. I had fun bowling with him and Donna. He was the best crappie/bluegill catcher I knew! I will always remember him when I cast my line out into the water. My sincere condolenses go out to his family. Jason was a good man. God bless you Jason. RIP.

  3. So sorry to hear of Mr. Lewis’s passing and his friend. They would always come and fish in our front yard. They both will be missed!!

  4. As usual I had told Gary that Friday morning it was too windy to go fishing, and as usual he said “Jason & I got this, we’ll be fine” And in the past they were. One dumb decision cost them their lives. It was fitting they went together. I’ll miss Jason calling me Wifey. My love and prayers go out to his family. We must all remember what good buddies they were and how they enjoyed fishing. Sandy Cook

    I just learned of Jason’s death. I was an employee of his for many years when I worked for KFC in Columbus. I know his death was some time ago, but I wanted to let you know how much I respected and loved him. I count him as one of the great men and women who have shaped my life.
