Jason Aaron Franck


Jason Aaron Franck, 26, lost his battle with drug and alcohol addiction on Sunday August 17, 2008, a battle he had fought for many years.

He leaves behind a loving and devoted family including: his mother Melody A. Franck; sister Trudy Wingfield; brothers Darin Franck and Shaun Franck; grandmother Carolyn Pride; great-grandmother Madeline Carter; aunts Betty Jean Giragosian; Robin Fortier; Theresa Starkman.

Jason had such a big heart and touched so many before and during his battle. He has left a lasting impression upon many in his journey and we hope the good times will never be forgotten. Jason deeply appreciated everything that was done to help him with his battle, and his family is forever grateful. He is finally at peace.

We, the family, hope that by openly telling you about Jason’s struggle we can possibly help save someone else’s life. If you are struggling with an addiction or know someone who is, please don’t be afraid to reach out for help. It is never too late.

A memorial service will be held at East West Legacy Pavilion in Woodlake on Thursday, August 21st at 11am.

In lieu of flowers donations can be given to Hope House ATTN: Jason Franck Memorial Fund, 10 Henry St. Wilmington NC 28405.

    I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one, Jason. I did not know him, but he sounds like such a wonderful person who had a great family supporting him. I am a 25 year old mother of 3 small precious girls and recently almost lost my husband to drug and alcohol addiction. He has been sober for 24 days now and we are taking things one day at a time. I want to thank you for being so honest about Jason’s story and for reaching out to others in the same situation. Your story touched my husbands heart and soul, not a day has gone by where my husband hasn’t spoke or thought about Jason and your words...Thank you for helping him with his struggle. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

    What a good looking young man and a beautiful obituary. Ten years ago, I could have written my son's obituary word for word; even to the picture with the fish. You will always be thankful for Jason's love of God and know that God has welcomed him and given him the peace he so badly wanted. It is a good to knowe that he is not fighting his addiction any longer. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
