    Jason Had so many Christ like attributes, he was so very humble and caring. I remember him when I was his scout leader, Later when we returned to Clarksville he was always a good friend. No man loved his family more than Jason. That is the example all men should grow up with. Jason you will be missed. Angie the Cravaths love you and are praying for you and your family. May you find comfort in knowing you will be with him forever when all is said and done.

    I’m sorry but i won’t be able to make Jason’s homegoing since I’m onTX, but i wanted to say that I met Jason through my Brother John Fisher in 1994! He was a Super nice guy and a GREAT person overall! My heart sank when I found out he was sick with such a horrible illness! I began praying for him and his family daily! When I got the news that he’d gone home to glory, I cried and began praying for his family even more! It was only then that GOD told me…I will wipe away your tears. And HE reminded me that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord! We will all have to cross over one day in order to be with the LORD forever more! This world in NOT our home.

    However; no one should have to suffer, but they should live in peace! That’s what Jason has…PEACE and free from suffering!

    Rest well my friend!

    My condolences too the family! I pray for your strength and understanding in knowing the GOD makes NO mistakes! I Thank GOD that his suffering is finally over now!

    Way too young my friend to depart this life! Jason, you were a difference maker in every aspect of your life. You were passionate for Christ, you family, & your profession. Angela, continued prayers for you and your family. Jason was made whole when you two became one in marriage and in life. Heaven now awaits as a great reunion day! Love, prayers, & blessings!

  18. Bill Hutcherson says:

    I as so saddened and hurt to hear of Jason’s recent suffering during his battle with cancer and his passing. I worked with TDOC in the Legal Department until 2008 and Jason was one of the folks at TDOC that I so missed when I left the department. Jason was always ready and eager to help me and my fellow lawyers in our legal work with TDOC as a part of his role as an Internal Affairs Investigator. Not only was he exceptionally professional in performing his duties for the department, he always had a smile and and good “lawyer joke” or two to pass on. Although I am unable to attend his celebration of life service, Jason indeed celebrated life and his service to his fellow man to the fullest . My prayers are with you all.
