Jason and I met when we were 18…move-in day Freshman year at UW-Eau Claire. We were together all through college and got married the summer after we graduated in August, 2000. Our daughter, Anna was born November, 2001. Our sons Seth and Levi were born in July, 2003 and August, 2007. Life was good. On May 4, 2021 Jason was diagnosed with an aggressive, terminal brain cancer called Glioblastoma. After a 15 month battle with this cruel disease he passed away on August 4, 2021.
