Jason was great person. Jason and my nephew went to high school together at Catholic Central and played basketball together. He was such a genuinely nice person. I lived in Springfield at that time and went to all the ball games I could. Jason always took time after the games to talk to the kids that looked up to him and sign autographs...even then everyone wanted his autograph. I have some great pictures of my son with Jason, my son who is 16 now and I will always treasure those. Jason never let the fact that he was a local celebrity even in high school go to his head. He was just Jason and who could have asked for more. My family's thoughts and prayers go out to the Collier family, which if you know the Collier family it is clear how Jason turned out to be such a good person. To Jason's wife and daughter you are in my family's thoughts and prayers. Jason's passing is a huge loss to everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.
