Jason A. Williams

Jason Austin Williams, 23, died May 31, 2014, in Dallas, Ore., from a blood clot after going through surgery two days earlier. A private memorial will be held in Homer, and his ashes will be spread where his mother’s were on Poot Peak across Kachemak Bay from Homer.

Jason was born July 7, 1990, in Homer. Jason lived life to the fullest, enjoying his childhood with his older sister, Charity. He particularly enjoyed snowboarding with his friends. Jason worked primarily as a commercial fisherman in the summer time, and worked in food service and other various jobs in the winter time.

“Jason will be missed by family and friends and will always be remembered as a fun loving, caring person. We are very thankful that Jason is with his mother and Savior and not suffering anymore. We look forward to being with Jason again for eternity,” his family said.

Jason was preceded in death by his mother, Jo Hanna Williams.

Jason is survived by his sister, Charity, and nieces Ariah and Ayana of Bend, Ore.; father, Steven Williams of Homer; grandparents, John and Joyce Williams of Homer and William and Donna Marinelli of Scappoose, Ore.; uncles and aunts John and Erica Neland and family, Darren and Lorraine Williams, Stephanie Williams and family, Stephen and Kari Hale, and Ralph and Teffani Story and family; and several cousins.
