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 your pain and grief. The powerlessness that took Jason is a wicked thing that no human power can remove. God has a special place for him as he loves addicts. I know you are all a strong family and together you will remember the good times and take care of each other.

    Jason was cool. The last time I saw Jason him and grandma took me and carter fishing. We caught a huge turtle and we went riding around the lake on the boat. He was funny. He talked to my sister when she was sad because she was not allowed to go with my mom and shaun when they got married. He made her feel better. We will miss him. We are thinking about grandma. Love: Austin

    I did not know Jason personally, but did know his father and grandparents. Betty Jean and Haiki, we are so sorry to hear about this tragedy and our hearts and prayers go out to all the family. You can take peace that he is in a better place now enjoying eternal life without the inner turmoil of any addiction. I hope for all the family to hold on to your faith and keep all the good memories close to your heart. Barbara and Paul Carr (neighbors and friends of Betty Jean and Haiki)

    All of you have been in my thoughts and prayers since I received the call about Jason. I think the way you shared his story is wonderful and hopefully it will help many people who may be struggling with an addiction. May this influence our children to make the right choices as their minds, strength and futures are threatened by alcohol and drugs. I hope you all can find comfort in the many great memories we all have of Jason and we will forever see his smiling face. May God, family and friends comfort you.
