No words can express the feeling of losing someone close for no apparent reason, and we don’t understand the “why”.
I am speechless.
Gonna miss ya Buddy!
You were always there to lend a helping hand, no matter what the task.
Our thoughts are with you all.
I can’t believe it. As I sat up town (St. Michael Legion) last weekend with Gordy and Joan and we talked about the good old days. And now this! I remember bowling with Jason like it was yesterday. Jason driving by my house and stepping on the gas to rattle the pipes on his truck. You will always be remembered. Rest in peace Jason.
You will always be in our hearts. We miss you tons already. We will watch over Carrie & Lily (your biggest achievments and love of your life.) Love ya Buddy

Carrie we so sorry for your loss… You and family are in our prayers…
my thoughts and prayers go to gutzwiller family
Oh Jay, how you were such the instigator. Why is it that after a day with you my husband always comes home with a Mo-hawk? Just last week it happened again! and now you aren’t here for me to give you crap about it. The last image i have of you is driving off in the truck, and i didn’t even stop to say hello.
Your wife and daughter are very strong, I know that because they get it from you. Your spirit and strength will live on through them. They will stay strong for you. As we watch Lily grow she will always be reminded of how great her father was and how he was too quickly stolen away from us. We will never forget.
My heart is with you all
To the Gutzwiller, Bongaarts and Jennissen family’s this is a very sad loss. May the strength of all of you help to ease the pain that you are feeling. All my memories of Jason bring a smile to my face. You are remembered Jason.
May the Gutzwiller, Bongaarts and Jennissen family’s gain the strength to deal with the tragic loss of Jason. My memories of Jason bring a smile to my face.
Sending my heartfelt sympathy to Jason’s loved ones. God be with you during this difficult time. Take care.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you!!
Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know that are happy. Author Unknown
Carrie and Lily, my heart goes out to both of you. I pray you will find strength and peace in HIS word. If there is anything I can do, don’t hesitate to ask.
You will be in my thoughts and prayers at this time of extreme loss and sadness for you.
