Visited the Flag site on Mother's Day and placed a Memorial Day wreath. We love you Jason, and you will never be forgotten. Mom and the family
I miss you brother! Can't wait to see you again in the beyond!! Remembering you all the time!
HET 10 for life brother, we will never forget you Whitey.
It's been 5 years since we brought it to the insurgents of Hit, Iraq. We did good work there together Jason. When I got back in '07 I saw a news reporter walking in that city in broad daylight, so we did make a difference.
To the family and friends of Staff Sgt. Jason D. Whitehouse:
Please accept my remembrance of Jason on the anniversary of his passing and know that he will never be forgotten.
5 years but seems like yesterday still. You continue to be sorely missed and honored in some way as each day passes. For what you sacrificed, we are indebted to you for eternity. Raising a glass. Not one day bro.... not one day! - All of us.
Happy bday brother, see you soon.
Happy Birthday Jason. We love you!
Happy Birthday Jason! We haven't forgotten, never will. We miss you much, like theres no tomorrow. Raising a glass in your memory. Not one day... not one.
I miss you a lot and I wish I could have seen you more often. I love you a lot.
I still miss you and think about you all the time ugh
I still remember the day I got the news. You were a great man Jason; please know you're in my thoughts this Memorial Day, as on all others. Keep a watchful eye over our brothers who are still downrange. Your memory continues to give us all strength.
Just thinking about you today, no specific reason why. Just am. Some days are hard, others are easy. But in the end there isn't a day bro, not one day that goes by. I miss you! See you soon.
Thank you for your sacrifice brother. We miss you and love you and will never forget. "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." - John 15:13

We laid some flowers, planted a flag and poured you a drink this evening. It was a comfortably cool and bright night. There still isn't a day that goes by Brother, not one. Time doesn't help, but you bring us together and that does. We miss you Jason! Look out after the guys, they're still doing the job and need you to help them through it all. For all that you and your entire Family gave, thank you. With nothing but love... we'll see you soon. I Love Brother! Goodnight!
We miss you Jason. We toast you and pray for your family today. Rest in peace brother.

Almost 3 years have passed
Things are going well here I guess
...I just miss you man
Jason, The guilt lingers and doesn't go away. It's almost three years and it's like it was yesterday. The good fight continues. You are always thought of and admired. We'll celebrate you again this year as always. Because of men who have sacrificed their freedom, I forever live in your, and their debt. Raise a glass, We love and miss you!
Jason, I never stop thinking about you and missing you. There are many nights like this I just want to sit down with you and have a beer and talk, just talk. It would be so nice to just talk with you. I love you, thank you for everything you did and still do.
Another glass raised for you this evening. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Jason! You're sorely missed and continually thought of. Thank you and your family again for allowing us to be here. The guys are still doing good things, you'd be proud! Goodnight Jason. With nothing but love Brother!
Happy birthday brother. We miss you so much. Know that we are celebrating your life today!
We love you.
I think about you all the time brother and want you to know that you give me strength to keep fighting thihs fight. I remember our times at NMITC and our short time at Pendleton afterwards. You would be proud of many of us.
Take care and love you brother.
It's just one of those nights and I'm thinking of you. I'm still trying to fight the good fight. The boys will be heading out soon to fight the good fight. Look out for them from time to time, they'll need you whether they realize it or not. I miss you. I'm sorry and most of all, THANK YOU! Not now..... but we'll see you soon. Goodnight Jason.
i love you so much!

The Wind on The Downs
“I like to think of you as brown and tall,
As strong and living as you used to be,
In khaki tunic, Sam Brown belt and all,
And standing there and laughing down at me.
Because they tell me, dear, that you are dead,
Because I can no longer see your face,
You have not died, it is not true, instead
You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe;
I hear you laughing as you used to do,
Yet loving all the things I think of you;
And knowing you are happy, should I grieve?
You follow and are watchful where I go.”
(Written by Marian Allen during World War l )
Two lines that I wish you to keep near your heart…….
“You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe”
I did not know Jason, but I am remembering
his service and sacrifice. He is my hero. !

The Other Side
i'm over on the other side
where life and death softly divide.
left my skin and bones behind
now i'm over on the other side.
can you feel me there with you?
my breath is gone but i'm not through.
loved you then and i still do
from over on the other side.
i can fly. really fly.
below the earth ... all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.
it's good here on the other side.
the sweetest songs...the bluest skies.
thank you for the tears you cried
but it's good here on the other side.
i can fly. really fly. below the earth...all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side
the world is smaller than a needle's eye.
where life and death softly divide.
when you leave your skin and bones behind
i'll be waiting on the other side.
i can fly. really fly. below the earth ... all through the sky.
go tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

Angel and soldier drawing I have shared here.
My deepest condolences at the loss of your son. My husband is currently deployed with your sons unit and I am thankful for Marines like Jason, who were willing to put themselves in harms way to provide freedom for everyone who calls themselves an American, and then some. My children and I thank you for the sacrifice you have made through Jason. You are in my prayers. Semper Fi!
I was just a new guy when you, Dickey, Hicks, and a few others took us under your wings. Now here we are almost two years since we all got the bad news. A couple of months ago a bunch of us got together and celebrated your birthday. I don't know what to say brother other than you are my hero and I know you are looking over all of us smiling like always. I think about you everyday when I look down at the bracelet I wear to tell everybody about what a hero you are. We won't ever forget you. God bless you man and keep an eye out for us.
Hey brother, no doubt this finds you well. The guys are scattered around the world doing the Lords work and doing well. I miss you dude. There isn't a day that goes by Jason, not one. Keep looking out over yours and the boys out there on the job. Raising a glass in your honor! Happy Birthday Jason! See you in a while.
Hey Jason this is your cousin Tara and well i am following in your footsteps i am in the army and getting ready to go back to IRAQ for the second time you are always with me in my heart love you tons and miss you more than tons can bring!
You are remembered and respected. Thank you Staff Sgt Whitehouse!
It has been too terribly long. I want to write so terribly much but for some reason I can't seem to put pen to paper. I know we'll see each other again....... take care of yours and I'll make sure eventually we'll all be together again in some way shape or form. Semper Fi Brother...... Enjoy the view!
it was a pleasure and an honor to work with you and to know you. you definitely knew your stuff. from the conversations of family at the FOB to the speed of your ability to i.d. the enemy within minutes of seeing them in zone. you were a very valuable asset to have with the teams while we were in hit.you are a very good man jason, i'll see you again, until then you take care.
Hey bro it's Dec 1st again..... It doesn't seem like it was that long ago when we were in Fallujah and our company got hit bad, you remember? It was good to have you aboard. The boys of 2/7 Fox co. miss you and we were lucky to have you with us on that deployment.
We were thinking about you yesterday. Poured you and the rest of your brothers a drink too. We cried a little and laughed some also. The guys are back at it again so look out after them from time to time. There just isn't a day that goes by dude, not a day. Thank you for allowing the rest of us the time to hang out here a little longer. Love ya and miss ya.
It was one year ago today that Jason lost his life in a battle in Hit. I have remembered him, and those who died with him, every day since. My our Holy Father lift up his family and friends, and his Marine brothers, and may we never forget. A recon mom.
Thank you for the sacrifice made by Staff Sgt Whitehouse and the sacrifice made by everyone who loves and misses him! May God bless all of you!!
If this person can stand in battle to ensure my freedom, then I will stand in grief with his/her family to honor him/her. For every fallen HERO there is a bright star that shines in the evening sky to remind us of the cherished gift we were given – even if for too short a time.
My heart breaks again as I sign yet another guest book of another courageous young soldier who gave their life so selflessly. I wish I never found myself in a position to have to sign another guest book for the rest of my life, but I promised LE RON A. WILSON (a dear friend KIA 7/6/07, 18yrs old) that neither he nor any like him would be forgotten and so I will continue until the day there is no longer the need.

Happy Birthday Jason. We love and miss you. I know we'll see each other again some day. Until then your smile remains in my heart.
Happy Birthday Jason. Your memory will allways be with me.
Happy Birthday Brother! Drinking one for you tonight! Your brothers still miss and love you! Never forgotten, ever. Goodnight dude! Love HET 10!
SSgt Whitehouse was for me a role model. As a new Marine when I checked in to NMITC he was there going through his MOS course. He didn't treat me unjust or pick on me because I was a new Marine; he treated me as a brother, an equal. He has and will forever be the person whom I could look up to and just want to be a better person. I saw him not 3 days before I left for Iraq with his wife and child/children, and that would be the last time I saw SSgt Whitehouse in person.
I will never forget you SSgt Whitehouse. You influence will forever be etched into my memory and I am truely gratefull to have known you. Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand. Rest in Peace big brother.
I will never forget you bro.
Rest in Peace Brother. You will be missed by many. Jason, your family was large, from the one which raised you to the one you shed blood with. Your assignments were hard and unwanted, yet you stepped up and took them. Today you stand over all of us looking down, your wings guarding over Lindsay, Aaron and Haylie. Your image remains today as it did prior to departing the company on this last one, that of a United States Marine. Semper Fidelis Brother, may you rest in peace.
Mr & Mrs Whitehouse, Lindsay, Aaron and Haylie.
I never walked up to you, prior to or after, Jason's Memorial on 11 May 2007, many of Jason's closer friends did. I, having just returned, thought it would be fitting for others who knew Jason prior to stepping off on his last mission to be the ones to give their respects. Truth is that Jason was a friend to all of us, in a job where your name and dignity are all you have, Jason had us all beat. An awesome human being, Jason will always be. Although I can not share in your grief as deeply and profound as you, I do know that his picture will always be on a wall in work area along with two other friends lost in Iraq. And when asked about Jason, they will know what great human being he is to all of us. My condolences to all of you, but rest assured that he now looks over all of you, as the United States Marine he will always be.
Please know how Deeply Sorry I was to learn of the recent loss of this Brave Young Marine, Staff Sgt. Jason D. Whitehouse,
As a parent, who has lost a daughter suddenly,
and as a sister, who has lost a brother to war,
I am aware of the deep and devastating pain
that you are experiencing.
The overwhelming heartache that seems to surface
through our shock, as the time passes.
Please hang on to your Faith and know that you will get through this.
Hope is not only the light we carry within...
It is also, what often carries us through...
May Jason Rest Safely, in the Loving Care of God
and know that he Will Never Be Forgotten.
I pray that the Peace of God will continue to be with the Whitehouse family.
I am the sister, of such a Young Hero, who made the Ultimate Sacrifice in Vietnam, many years ago.
I sincerely hope that you can feel the thoughts of caring and support that surround you today and every day, as this Country remembers Jason and his Sacrifice. He Is A Hero to all of us.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS. I HAVE JUST LEARNED OF YOUR GREAT LOSS AND WISH TO EXPRESS MY DEEPEST CONDOLENCES. PLEASE KNOW THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT HERE WHO DO CARE AND YOUR HERO WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. HOLD TIGHT TO YOUR TREASURED MEMORIES THAT HIS SPECIAL SMILE MAY CONTINUE TO SHINE ON FOR YOUR CHILDREN. I PRAY THAT PEACE WILL FIND YOU ALL SOMEDAY. STAY STRONG AND GODSPEED. SEMPER FI
A PROUD MARINE MOM
I recently saw Jason's name on a list as one of our Marines killed in Arizona. I am truly sorry for the family's loss.
I enlisted in the Marines 7 years ago and met Jason Whitehouse in December 2000 when we swore in at Phoenix MEPS. Jason, myself and another recruit were leaving for basic training at MCRD San Diego that day, and I remember it like yesterday because I was so nervous.
I did not graduate basic training with Jason but was always curious to know how he was doing in the Marine Corps. He was one of the many persons I met in my short time with the Marines and I was saddend to hear about his passing.
I will never forget those I trained with, especially SSg. Jason Whitehouse.
I am so sorry for your loss and the loss to the world of such a fine young man. I did not personally know him, but I read that he was born in Houston and wondered if he might be related to my husband's nephew, Floyd Whitehouse, Jr. of Pearland. Please know our thoughts and prayers
are with you.
We loved sending him our pride package from Bosworth & Associates
MAY GOD BLESS YOU IN SUCH A TIME OF
GRIEF. REMEMBER A GREAT MARINE WHO HAS FOUGHT AND GIVEN THE ULTIMATE
FOR FAMILY,FRIENDS AND NATION.
Please know your pain is felt by all. My most sincere condolences to all his family and friends.
OUR DEEPEST SYMPATHY, OUR OFFICE SENT A CARE PACKAGE TO MARINE WHITEHOUSE'S UNIT IN NOVEMBER.
WE ARE ALL PRAYING FOR THE FAMILY
“Paid in Full”
In Honor of The War Against Terrorism’s Fallen and Injured Marines
Marines through and through, they paid the price
Six thousand miles away, we live the life
For which they paid with their blood, spirits and bodies
We will never forget what they paid in full
We hope and we pray that somehow their loved ones find comfort
In God, in the flag, in the memory of their loved ones’ bravery
They’re gone now but we see them still…proud, strong, willing
Covering each other’s backs… courageous, moving forward
What kind of love did they have for us to be willing
To give it all for the Black, White, Jew, Christian, Muslim?
We don’t comprehend but we honor you now and forever
You are Our Marines…some living…some not
Forever in our minds we will cherish your lives
Lives too short yet immortal they’ll be
Highest brotherhood of the few, the proud
They stand at attention, and we gaze with awe
Some know their names not, but our admiration for them
Flows limitless within us, between us
They sacrificed their limbs or their lives
Freedom still rings, a soft sound across the miles
It tolls slowly; all of creation takes note
Of the lives that were lost for people unknown
Out of sight but not lost; forever among us
The starched blues marching straight
Toward the place where we will meet them
Many years from now…how we loved them…
Well done beloved Brothers and Sisters…You’ve paid it in full
Always Faithful Marines, You Have Paid it in Full
Our deepest sympathy to the family of SSgt Jason Whitehouse. Through this wonderful site, we just found out from Rachael of this tragic loss. We too lost our son 1st Lt. Mark Gelina just two days after SSgt. Whitehouse. We cannot express our gratitude and appreciation for all that these men do for our freedom.I feel that like our son, he felt he could make a difference over there. To try to give these people the same freedoms that we have. Once again thank you SSgt. Whitehouse for everything that you do. Thank you SSgt. Whitehouse's family for sharing him with us. You are all in our prayers. Please take care and may God bless you all. Semper Fi

Jason worked for me at Camp Pendleton, when he changed over to the intel field. In my 30 years as a Marine, it has not been often that I meet a young man who, although junior in rank, was so respected by all those around him. I only learned today of this tragic loss, and it was like losing a son. He was a fine man, Marine, husband and father, and will be greatly missed by many.
deepest sympathy on the loss of your loved one. Our church (Central Christian Church of Frisco, Tx.)has been in prayer for his unit for the last several months and we feel your pain. May God richly bless you and carry you through this time of grief.
To the Whitehouse family,
Jason was with us the last time he was in Iraq and we had a pretty close relationship. He was just as much a part of 2/7 Fox as any of us are. We will miss him and feel we have lost a good friend. If there is anything I can do please let me know.
Sgt Tim Lovitt 2/7 Fox
My deepest sympathies to you and your family. My son is in the same unit that Jason was in and is still in Iraq. Jason's death hit him hard, but it made him vow that he would do an even better job over there, so that Jason's death would not be in vain. Please know that you will always be in our prayers.
Dear Whitehouse Family,
Even though we have never met I feel as if we are a part of a "family". My daughter's fiancee was killed by an IED in Iraq on Oct. 3, 2005. It is my prayer that you will feel God holding close to His heart as He has held my family this past year. May you know His peace and comfort as you face the difficult days ahead.
I am so sad to hear of his lose. I met Whitehouse in Phoenix at the MEPS station. I hung out with him the night before I left for bootcamp. He went to S.D. and I went to Paris Island. I later ran into him while I was at MOS school and hung out with him a few times. He was a great Marine and a Great Man. My prayers go out to his family, friends, and fellow Marines.
God Bless and Semper Fi
To Jason's family and friends-
My family and I are praying for you and your family during this difficult time. We send our deepest empathy as we lost our Marine on 11/30/05 in Fallujah. We are comforted to know that our Marines are serving their country with such honor and bravery. We are so proud of our Marines and all of our other service men and women for all that they have done and continue to do to keep us safe and to give us the freedom we have that so many take for granted.
They are true Heroes and need to always be remembered for their selflessness and sacrifice to better our world. We will forever be united in the loss of our heros. We are so sorry for your loss and hope our words will ease some of the pain, and maybe fill some of your emptiness.
Yesterday, Today, Forever – Semper Fi - Marines!
Our sincerest gratitude for their bravery-

My heart breaks for you. From the Tributes it sounds like Jason was a very special person and will be missed greatly. I had 2 sons who served in Iraq and I can only imagine the sadness your family is going through. My sincere smypathy and prayers are extended to you and your family in this tragic loss of your love one. I also send my deepest respect to your love one for the sacrifice that he gave in serving his country. May God wrap HIS arms around you and comfort you.
From the family of a currently deployed soldier, please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.
I am so very sorry about the loss of such a great man.Be so very proud of Him and what he was trying to do. God Bless all. My Nephew also lost his life the same day. LCPL James E Brown.SEMPER FI" Mary Hess
Lindsay, Aaron, Haylie and The Whitehouse family, Uncle Ron and Aunt Tina,
We had great times with you when you guys came over to our house, which now the times to us were way too short. You are a very heroic man that we are proud to have had you in our life. Jason you were like a brother to us and we always had a great time with you, Lindsay, and the kids. YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. We as young adults have learned a great deal of things from your growing up that we were able to be a part of. We still have many things to learn in our life, but we have learned from you the most important things in life, which are freedom, love, family, and to stay in school. You were not only a hero to us but a hero to our country. You will always be in our hearts and will never be forgotten. You were a great MARINE that helped us understand the importance of helping your country. Lindsay, Aaron, and Haylie you are always in our hearts and here for you always and forever with or without times of need. GOD BLESS YOU WITH OPEN ARMS AND LOVE FOR ALL THAT YOU HAVE DONE FOR OUR COUNTRY.

We met Jason during holidays spent with the Bruno family and remember him to be funny, friendly, and very tender and caring towards his family. We feel blessed to have met him and admire his bravery in answering a calling many of us would not have the courage to undertake. He is a hero not only to his family, but to our whole country. To Carol and Bob Bruno, we respect and admire you greatly as parents and friends and feel deeply your loss and pain. Please call us to help in any way we can. Lindsay, Aaron, Haylie, Rachael, Rob, Josh, Edward and Preston, and all of Jason and Lindsay's family and friends, we extend to you our deepest sympathy and hope the days ahead provide some healing and comfort. You will remain in our thoughts and prayers.
SSgt Whitehouse was such a nice man! Aaron would always be so excited on days when his dad and sister picked him up from school. He would always leave with a big smile on his face. We are praying for Aaron and his family.
Jason was a quiet professional whose actions spoke louder than words. He is a true hero who any Marine would have been proud to serve with through the stresses of combat. He will always be in my thoughts as well as the thoughts of his other brothers-in-arms. Jason truly stood out amongst his brothers in the elite field he served in within the Marine Corps, and his legacy will live on. He was the true image of a United States Marine whose values were based on family, god and country.
Jason's Family and Friends,
Jason and I shared only a small part of our lives together. I was probably a short blur to him in the four months of training he attended at the intelligence training center. He was one of 350 or so Marines I trained there. I only remember three types of students of all those I trained-- The Good, The Bad, and The Funny. I remember SSgt Whitehouse. He was one of the latter-- the class clown with one hell of a sense of humor. I attended the memorial and funeral, along with over 20 other Marines (retired, former, and active duty Marines). Most of us had served doing the same job Jason was doing when he was killed, most of us knew him, all of us mourn his loss. Our prayers go out to his wife children.
My heartfelt prayers and sorrows to the Whitehouse Family in this loss of a great Hero of our country, the Marine Corps, and his Family. I hold all of these men in the highest regard, above all others; those that give their lives in the Service of Our Country as “Guardians of Freedom, Honor, and Humanity”. Of this SSGT. Whitehouse will forevermore be reguarded as a "HERO" and above all a "MARINE".
God Bless You, and may you eternally carry your Sword and bare it with Honor.
Deputy Sheriff, Cobb County,GA
My heartfelt sympathy to the Whitehouse family in the loss of Jason. I did not know Jason, but my heart is broken and I am saddened for your loss of such a fine young person and hero. May God bring you peace in your heart as you reflect on all the wonderful memories you hold so close. Please know that you are in my heart and prayers. My heart was touched by the many wonderful/beautiful things written about you. Jason you are my hero and you will NEVER be forgotten.
I send each of you a hug from the most inner part of my heart.
Love and Peace
To live in the hearts
of those you leave behind
is never to die"
Words could never express how proud we all are of our FINEST soldiers like Jason, that risk their lives for our freedom. Your son, husband, children and all that knew him, know that he was a "true marine" and fought on behalf of America. God bless him and God bless all of you.
Lindsay, Aaron, Haylie and all of Staff Sgt Whitehouse's family.
No words I say right now can take away the terrible pain and heartache you all are feeling. Please know that you are in the thoughts and prayers of myself and my family. I was honored to be part of the group that escorted Jason from the airport last night. I want you to know that when they say the nation mourns with you (and they will say it) that there are those of us that do. I shed tears last night and today for you and your loss and for Jason.
Lindsay, I too lost my husband in Iraq on 09/26/05. I know your pain and I know the road ahead of you as I have and am walking this same path. Please don't hesitate to contact me. I left my business card for you today. My heart breaks for you and my chest is heavy with pain. Please know that you are not alone and in the middle of the night when you're keeping "widow hours" I'll be here keeping them also and willing to listen if you just need to vent or cry or just hear that what you're feeling is natural. I too have children. I send you all my love and support.
Your hero will not be forgotten and will always have a special place in my heart because you allowed me to honor him last night and this morning. Thank you for sharing your private and painful moment with me.

I had the privledge and honor of replacing Jason last January and was looking foward to replacing him again this time. He truly was a great Marine and is a Hero.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve at the gravesite. I feel for your lose and pray that the Lord will bring comfort to the family. Having had my son serve in Iraq and my daughter in the Navy, I realize the importance of the sacrifice that Jason made. I will continue to pray for your family while remembering that Jason is in the presence of the Lord. If there is anything we can do for you please let us know. Sincerely, Pastor Dan and Loria Hute

"Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life" John 15:13. How I wish I'd had the privilege of knowing your brave Jason. I grieve your loss and am humbly, unspeakably grateful for his sacrifice. Your entire family has my prayers not only today as do all the selfess, honorable, courageous men and women serving this country. May God strengthen their loved ones and bless and comfort your family and all those who mourn Jason's memory.
I offer my condolences for your lost of a great man and a great Marine. I am the wife of a Marine who served with Jason and it is never easy to see the ones we come to know, even if it only by name, leave us. The saying goes, “Once a Marine, Always a Marine,” I always like to think of it as, “Once a Marine Family, Always a Marine Family.” Jason and your family will always hold a special place in our hearts and his legacy will live on.

Lindsay,Aaron,Haylie,and all of
Jasons family members,
Although the time that we were able to spend with Jason was short we knew that he was a HERO. He was a HERO as a Husband and father, but he is still a HERO for our Country. Jason had sacrificed his life for ours, he was a courageous soldier, but for not 1 time but for a 2nd time he fought for his country and his family. Jason loved his family to the fullest that any husband or father could. Jason was very proud of his children and wife. We feel very privileged and honored to have been a part of his life. Jason we want to thank you for the sacrifice that you made for us and our country. You have fallen, but will never be forgotten. May God open his arms wide for you to show you the love that he has for you for all that you have done in your short life. God Bless you Jason.
All our love to the Whitehouse Family and the Anthony Family. We are here for you now and forever. All it will take is a phone call and we will be there. Lindsay we love you dear just like you were my own daughter. I know I can not say any words to help with the pain but to know that we love you may help some. May god watch over you and the children and grant with his ever lasting love that Jason has for you. God Bless you.
With all our Love,
Brian, Tami, Tony & Kami Jordan

To the family of SSgt Jason Daniel Whitehouse
Words cannot express the pain of the loss of a precious child, brother, husband, and father and there is no greater sacrifice than your family has made today. We did not have the privilege of knowing Jason personally, but we offer you our deepest sympathy along with our utmost respect and heartfelt gratitude for the precious gift Jason so honorably gave to serve and protect you, his loved ones, all of us, and this country! Although your hearts are broken, I hope you find some small measure of peace and comfort in the knowledge that God only takes the best, and there is none better than a Marine. We are told in Psalms 34:18 that “the Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit." We pray now that God will encircle you with the comfort of his presence and uphold you in the days to come with His righteous right hand! As members of your extended Marine family, we gather around you today in spirit to remember Jason.
Please know that many people are thinking of and praying for you. I am so very sorry for loss. It was not an easy job that Jason took on, but a very honorable one. We will never forget Jason and his willingness to help America and make it a safer place. Jason was a hero. May he rest in peace knowing that he gave his all so that his family and the people here were protected.
May the angels wrap their arms around you and keep you safe forever. As time goes by I hope that you pain will be eased by thinking of the wonderfl memories you have.
with love and respect
Mike and Pamela Dustin

Our family sends their prayers to your family. As the parents of three boys we cannot imagine the magnitude of your loss. Your son will NOT be forgotten for his committment to this country and to all of us - the ultimate sacrifice -May God keep all of you in the palm of His hand. The Pidgeon Family - Steve Kathy Tyler Greg and Austin
We grew to know, love, and respect Jason after Carol and Bob Bruno were married and we all became part of the same extended loving family. Jason was a strong, modest and kind man, and as the Jewish prayer for the departed says--he still lives on earth in the acts of goodness he performed and in the hearts of those who loved him. He touched many lives and will never be forgotten.
Merle and Peter (Bob's sister and brother-in-law)
To the Whitehouse Family and loved ones: My prayers are with each and every one of you during this time. I am proud of Jason for serving his country as he did. Jason is in God's hands now. As Jason protected us to live in the freedom we do, God protects Jason now - Jason is free.
A MARINE & PROUD OF THE DIFFERENCE HE'S MADE. LET'S NEVER FORGET THE PRICE HE & OTHER SOLDIERS HAVE PAID. He was our son-in law, a man to be proud of. A devoted husband to my daughter ( Lindsay ) & a great father to Aaron ( 7 ) & Haylie ( 4 ). He also was a friend. We would just sit & talk . He will always be a hero. He was like a son we never had. God be with you, Jason. We will always love you.
My heart and prayers go out to the Whitehouse family. If anything is needed please let us know. Jason will always be in my heart for being such a brave soldier. Lyndsay, Aaron and Haylie we are here for you.
Jason was a great father to his 2 young children, he was a great person. And our family will miss him alot!. To his wife and children the Mclains have you in our hearts!
To the Family of Staff Sgt. Jason D. Whitehouse:
I will stand in grief with this soldier's family to honor him. For every fallen HERO there is a bright star that shines in the evening sky to remind us of the cherished gift we were given – even if for too short a time.
My heart breaks again as I sign yet another guest book of another courageous young soldier who gave their life so selflessly. I wish I never found myself in a position to have to sign another guestbook for the rest of my life, but I promised Brent that neither he nor any like him would be forgotten and so I will continue until the day there is no longer the need.
We lost our son SFC Brent A. Adams on 12/1/05 and it seems like yesterday. I wish so badly there were things I could say to you right now to make the pain you are feeling go away, but I know first hand there simply are no words that will bring you the comfort and peace your heart aches for. Just know that you are not alone. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with you all as you go through this tragedy moment by moment and as you mourn this loss.
We don't know each other, will probably never meet, but will forever be united in the loss of our Heroes. We have, unfortunately joined a group none of us wanted to join, an ever-growing group of families in this situation. May God grant you peace and strength to get through this and be able once again to smile at a memory rather than have only the tears that flow so easily now. To be so proud of your loved one and so saddened at the same time is a mix of emotions very difficult to deal with as our hearts both burst with pride and pain together.
I am sorry that I never knew your soldier personally. While they can never be replaced, neither will they ever be forgotten. You must trust that sometime, someday the loving memories you have will help to sustain you and help you go on. This courageous soldier will forever be your Angel watching over you all for the rest of your lives. It's what brings me some measure of peace and comfort and I hope it will you as well.
To his family and friends in pain, I offer this comfort: When you find yourself in that dark sorrowful place, think not only of how you will miss him, but instead recall the years, days, hours and minutes gifted to you by his presence. The one thing that cannot be taken from you is your wonderful memories that now will mean more than ever.
If you ever want to talk, I'm only an e:mail away and would love for you to tell me more about your Hero.
God Bless this soldier and family who gave all and God Bless legacy.com for setting up this site where families can so quickly share their condolences and prayers with others like themselves.
