Jason had become a faith member of “First Baptist of Lake Forest” church. His pastor, Rev.

Shannon stated that “Jason was really great with his two autistic sons.” Jason loved the pastor’s sons and would play with them every time he would visit them. Jason was unintentionally funny. Rev. Shannon and Jason loved going out to restaurants, going to visit comic bookstores, and just hanging out and talking. They were friends. Rev. Shannon spoke on how he saw that Jason was longing for love and acceptance. Therefore, Jason believed that moving back home to Chicago would be in his best interest, that way he would be closer to his family that loved him.

He worked at Portillo’s for awhile and his manager, stated “Jason was a hard worker, took his job seriously, always had a smile, could be depended on to give great customer service, and was a very sincere man.
