Thanks Chrissy, there are some odd cpialmcotions that have slowed things down. The illness he contracted due to his Chemo treatment was unusual so the coroner had to be informed. The undertaker was away for the weekend and didn’t get back home until yesterday, which has caused a further delay. The bank holiday weekend will delay it a bit more. On the plus side the undertaker was a personal friend of my Dad and was able to add some personal thoughts on what might be appropriate. My Dad has been in and out of hospital with serious illnesses for some time and he always bounced back. He always had hope for more stable health.The best thing we can do is treat him with the dignity he deserves.
My love and condolences to Carrie who shared a life with Jason for many years. She is hurting so deeply for not only her own loss, but the loss of her child’s Father. My prayers go out to the many lives Jason touched, his mother, friends who loved him, his girlfriend Katie, Carrie and Maya. I pray that all your pain eases and your heart heals. Jason was taken from you all too soon!
We miss Jason very much, and Maya anyone who would like to give Maya their condolences can contact me at 719 964-6830. Jason gave me a wonderful child, and like many of you out there he left his art on our bodies. We will always remember his warm hugs and the love and compassion he displayed. It seems like he lefrt too soon, but Ihe always telling me he would not be an old man. I love you Jason, always have.
Jason “Boddhi” was absolutely one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met. He stood by my decisions even when he knew they were not the right ones, and stayed when i realized it. Not to many people would do that for some punk kid who is wet behind the ears. He meant a lot to me and will forever change me for the better. I wish I could turn time back to when i first met him so i could spend another ten years with my best friend. I want to send out special thanks to the people that showed up to his memorial party Nov. 5 2011. And I want to personally thank his family for supporting him through his decisions. Because without you guys i would have never been able to meet and call him my best friend. And last but not least I want to thank Jason himself for being a huge part of my families life. Much much love to my friend and most importantly my brother.

Boddhi was one of the greatest people I have ever met. He helped me through so much and was always there even at 3 am when I just needed someone to listen to me. I loved Boddhi and will forever love him. No one can or will ever replace the spot in my heart that he made for himself. I am sorry for everyone’s loss and I hope Maya knows the impact her daddy made on everyone he talked to.
Jason was a one of a kind. If you didnt know him and he was approaching you: the feeling of love was there. His ora shined through to all he touched. He left behind a memory of warmth, kindness, and his spiritual being of guidance or us to carry on. Missed dearly, but will never be forgotten….
Till we meet again my friend, I will always say goodnight to you. Judy Chamberlain
Jason was a wonderful friend, artist, roomate and father. He tattooed me for years and my husband in more recent years. We spent many nights talking of religions and parenting while my now husband was deployed to Iraq in 07-08. We met and were instant amigos. My daughter also lost her father…Oct 5,11. Can you get us in contact with Ms. Maya? We would love to send her a card. Her and my daughter should keep in touch. Same loss. Same month. And we were all roomates. Same love. We are here if any of you need anything. We loved Boddhi…he was our family and we lost a great man in our life too. Devyn actually said she lost too much in Oct and she’s having trouble working thru it. We are trying together. I will donate any time to the memorial in CO when you have it…..and effort. Just contact me. My love to all of you. He remains with all of us and I carry his ink with pride and love FOREVER! Angel Vinatieri
You will always be missed, my Son. I love you more than I can say.
