We are so sad to hear of Jason’s passing. Our hearts and prayers go out to all the family. May God be a great comfort at this time. Chris and Christy Pannal

Chris and Christy (Christian) Pannal, Rincon, Georgia

I am so terribly sorry for your loss . I truly loved Jason. He was a great man.

Lance Randi, Savannah, Ga.

Mr and Mrs Elkins and Jon, Please except My Condolences on the Loss of Your Son, and Jon Your Brother. Jason was a Very Loved person and could always be seen with a Smile on his face. Although his Life was cut Short, We All No God has a Plan. Everyone is in my Thoughts and Prayers.

Mark and Sleepy Warren Family, Savannah , Ga

Melinda and Joe we are so heart broken for you. We just read heard about Jason. We ( Irene and Christy) have many fond memories of Jason at church Camp. We are praying for you all. So sorry we can’t make it today. May God comfort you at this time. Love Butch, Irene , and Christy ??

Butch and Irene Christian, Richmond Hill , Georgia

Condolences to Jason's family...strong arms around you all. Your loss is also our loss. Jason is a legend and always will be. The story of the BC city championship, probably the greatest upset and win in BC history can not be told or be complete without including Jason's "Golden Toe". I was fortunate to be on the receiving end of a perfectly executed onsides kick by Jason to set up his infamous field goal....That was my senior year and I would bet that all our team members/ class mates and anyone in school at that time would say that in those moments Jason became legend... And beyond the field, Jason was legend too...a great friend in good times and bad. Rest easy.

Alan Fleming , Savannah, GA

We are so sorry for your loss. We are praying for all of you during this difficult time. Josh please know we are here for you anytime.

Angie, Matt, and Nic Frost, Richmond Hill,

Melinda and family, I am so sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers. May God grant you strength for the days ahead and wrap you in His love.

Nancy O'Neal, Savannah, Ga

I'm sorry for your loss. Death is very painful to all of us. However Jehovah is the supreme comforter and offers it through his word The Bible. 1Corinthians 15:26 brings comfort in knowing that soon God's kingdom will put an end to death. I hope this scripture and many like it help you to endure this difficult time

Stephen Downing, Savannah, Ga

There will never be any words I could ever say about such a loss as those children losing their father at such a young age. Joe and Melinda losing your son. Jon losing your brother and Carrie, losing your husband. Jason was such a great friend to me and to all of our fellow classmates at Benedictine. We will all grieve and mourn this loss in so many different ways and pray that God will bring us all together in strength and love. I will always remember Jason and all of the truly great memories we shared in his life and the friendship that lasted forever...

Ashley Herrington, Pooler, Ga

Heart breaking to lose such a bright light at such a young age. His infectious smile will never be forgotten. Our hearts go out to Carrie and the children, to Jason's parents and to the rest of his family and friends. May God wrap his loving arms around you all and hold you all close.

Sherry Murat, Pooler, GA

My heart goes out to Carrie and the children, as well as Jason's parents. May God hold you tightly now and comfort you in the hard days ahead. I will always remember Jason smiling. Prayers and love for you all.

James&Wanda Poppell, Richmond Hill, Ga

Hate to hear of this. I'll never forget Jason kicking the game winning field goal against Savannah High for the City Championship in 93. It was the most memorable football game of BC. Jason was a huge part of it. My thoughts and prayers are with you all in the tough time. We'll miss you pal

Steven Chan, guyton, g

My condolences to Jason’s family. Hopefully the Bible’s promise that there will be a resurrection back to life for all who have died in God’s memory (John 5:28,29) will be comforting to you. The Bible also lets us know that death itself, our enemy, will be brought to nothing. (1 Corinthians 15:26) With God all things are possible.

Donna Howell, Cincinnati , Ohio

Mr. and Mrs. Elkins, I'm sad to hear this news and I'm praying for your family during this difficult time.
