Jason was tragically taken from us on September 5th 2011. Jason had spent 37 years of his life living in Fort Bragg, CA. where he enjoyed spending time with family and friends.
Jason was born in Oxnard California, and over the years he worked in construction, landscaping, redwood art, and as a mechanic and cook. Jason was especially proud of the redwood art he created in Fort Bragg and New Mexico. One of these is featured just inside the entrance of Perkos.
Jason will be remembered for his kind and loving heart, beautiful smile, willingness to help anyone in need, and his love for his dogs. One of Jason’s favorite quotes was, “I get knocked down, but I get up again. You’re never gonna keep me down.”
