    Jason was wonderful to my father, who was in his 90s and loved to eat breakfast at Leon's. When my father began to have troublle driving, Jason picked him up in the morning. I will never forget his kindness.

    Jason worked with my mom at Leon's a few years ago. He played so many jokes on us. He was so funny and playful. He always made me laugh and smile and played with me all the time. I remember riding in his new car. And how i looked forward to seeing him all the time. when my mom told me about this i was shocked. He will be missed. I love him so much.

    Thoughts and prayers are with the Slays family! Jason was a special person and will be missed by many. I don't think I ever saw him without him doing something to put a smile on my face. Usually we shared a laugh. Too few in this world have that affect on people.
