Good evening.

I've typed and deleted this more times that I can count...

This afternoon - May 21st, 2022 - Jason - aka JWilly was involved in an accident near his home in Atlanta. He did not survive. Details are limited at this point. I ask we keep Sonya and Jason's family in your thoughts and prayers as they work through this difficult time. As details come together regarding services, I'll post here.

There is a group in southeast Ohio this weekend for the annual SEO Ramble. There are no words that will heal or comfort at this point. Jason was one of the very first "FJR" people I ever met and rode with. His heart was the size of a dump truck. Be there for each other, lean on each other.

I will remember Jason as the definition of what being a good human is; love everyone, live every second of this life as if it was your last because we just don't know what our expiration dates are.

Thank you,

Wayne

Getting that phone call is not something any of us looks forward to. When I got called last night, I was dumbfounded. Jason is a great friend and I will miss him a lot. Hell, we talk on the phone more than anything, because we are so far away, but the times we've ridden together have been absolute highlights.

I can't imagine what his family is going through. He was such a good dad and grandpa. It breaks my heart.

Wow, very sad indeed. I never had the pleasure of meeting him but just like others on the forums you develop an affinity for people. I've never been big on attending the different meets and gatherings due job,family and health issues but you get to know people through their posting. I guess we're the high tech modern version of pen pals. I sometimes think of the FJR people as the best friends I've never met. There is so much trouble in the world today and so few good people it is especially sad to lose one. My thoughts, prayers and condolences to his family.
:(

Known Jason for years though there are many on here that knew him longer and better than I. He was an awesome guy and I will miss him.

Live every day like it might be your last.

Ride safe friends.

It's been many years since I posted anything here, however, I've stayed in touch with Jason through social media. Like everyone here...and anyone who ever met him, I'm reeling from this unexpected loss. My thoughts and prayers go out to Jason's immediate family as well as his family within this group. I know he was as proud to be associated with us all as we were to be associated with him. Ride safe...

The world lost one helluva human being… a heart bigger than the ocean, humor and kindness to match, and a great friend to so many not to mention son, husband, father, grandfather (I think his internal age was the median of all his grandkids and boy did he adore them all), and successful businessman… sometimes I just don’t understand why the universe chose him because this one makes no sense… I was honored to call him my friend... my heart and love goes out to his family and all who loved him… I’ll see you in the sky twisties, my friend.

Its always painful to hear these news and makes me think life can’t be taken for granted. RIP Jason

This is the bad part of keeping up to date with this group. It feels like the second coming (or third, or fourth, or ?) of losing Twowheelnut, and Andrew before Tim. I got real lucky and survived my wad-up. So sorry for our loss. Sincere condolences and best wishes for peace and gentle healing to all of his FJR family, loved ones and friends. Rest in Peace, Sir.
