I just found out about Major George's passing and am heart broken. He was a captain with the 8th ENG when my husband served with him. I have very fond memories of him and my husband thought he was one of the best officers he had ever worked for. I remember "CPT" George coming to a Halloween party dressed in a 70s disco outfit complete with an afro wig! I also remember him coming to cook-outs. All his soldiers loved that he cared enough to spend his time off with them. When my husband received orders to Korea, (then) CPT George made sure I knew I could still come to him if I needed anything. He made a lasting impression on both me and my husband and even though I have not seen him since 2000, Major George has often crossed my mind through the years. In the last few years, I had hoped to find him to tell him about Bryant being killed in Iraq... I think Bryant will tell him about it himself, because I somehow know that Bryant was there waiting for him, at attention and saluting. For me, Major Jason George will always be remembered as an American Hero, and just a great guy! He will not be forgotten.
May God be with you.

So sorry to hear of your loss.
LEST WE FORGET
July 29, 2009
--After reading the incredible story about your son, and having just attended my son's graduation from West Point----and being a Michigan business school grad in 1980, I felt such a need to tell you how much I am praying for you and your family. No one else but you can imagine your pain, but I hope the love and prayers of strangers who care so much will help. How wonderful that you had such a son for the time that he was here. He will find a way to reach out to you and send his love. God bless you and know that I am only one of hundreds who have heard the story and send their prayers and caring.
Jason was a year behind me at Michigan. Just read about him in Dividend. What a remarkable individual. Certainly a loss to the family and to the alumni community and beyond.
My condolences go out to all of Maj. George family and friends. I had the pleasure of serving in Iraq with him. He touch everone that was around him. He was a great leader in many ways, we as his brothers in arms will miss him dearly with his leadership and his friendship. Maj. George would always speak words of wisdom and would always say "LIVING THE DREAM" Maj. George I salute you sir and your family and you will always be remember.
I first met Jason (MAJ George) at FT. Bragg, prior to deploying to Iraq in April. He, like several other soldiers, was called up for duty and assigned to the Old Hickory Brigade, to deploy along with approximately 4000 soldiers to Iraq. Although he may or may not have wanted to leave his civilian life, he answered the call to duty. Jason was and is a man of Honor. Although I didn't know him well, I'm sure he remains duty-bound. God Speed man!
I didn't know Jason at all, but I am inspired by the words of his friends. He sounds like the kind of guy anyone would want as a friend. Bless his family as they go through this difficult time. And remembering why he died, gives me pause. I worked for the B-School for 23 years and know the quality of students it has nortured, Jason sounds like one of the best of the best.
I had the chance to work under Jason for a few months while at Deloitte. He taught me many things about teamwork, collaboration and management. His calm demeanor was re-assuring and made me feel we could conquer any obstacle that came our way. I often started the day by asking him how he was doing to which he’d reply “livin’ the dream”. I think he meant it, he was genuinely happy and tried to get the most out of every single day. I miss him. My prayers go out to his family and friends.
I learned of Jason's passing on July 2 from our very close friend Nikki Parra. I have known Jason for 21 years and met him at Cal State Bakersfield. From the moment we met, we were great friends and despite our distance across the country (he at West Point and me at UCSB), we remained inseparable. In fact, Jason became my little brother and me his big sis. I will cherish all the time and memories we created together. I love him and will miss him forever.
My heart and prayers go out to you Candy and Hugh. Jason has touched the lives of many and made this world a better place for all of us.
I just learned of Jason's passing last night. I met him 20 years ago through our very close friend Jennifer. I have so many wonderful memories of the trips we took together the last couple of years. He never traveled without his Army or Michigan shirts and I would always tease him. He was kind to people, a great listener, a real hero.
My last trip with Jason was in November when he met me in Hawaii for a week. He loved taking pictures, meeting all my Sacramento Politicos, and hanging by the pool (with his Army shirt on).
I just came back this morning from visiting his grave. It is so hard to say goodbye to someone so young...so wonderful...My life is so much better for knowing him.
I just learned of Jason's passing tonight. I was a highschool classmate of Jason's. I always remembered him as a young man of quiet strength and leadership, and the kindest of hearts - I was not surprised when he went to West Point. I was proud to know him and I knew he had much greater insight and wisdom than the rest of us ever did - his heart shined for all of us to basque in if we were blessed enough to spend time with him - a genuine smile, a warm soul, an encouraging word, a brave heart...I'm so proud to read how much you influenced everyone and how much everyone loved you. I know you rest in the Lord's presence now. Faith and Courage - Thank you Jason for your legacy. In friendship always - Lulu
I didn't know Jason, but, as a U of M alumnus, have read about him. His passing is quite tragic, but what a wonderful life he lived! Jason represents everything that is great about America. God bless his family.
To the Family,
Words cannot express to you how deeply sorry I am about the loss of your son. I served with Jason during his short time in Iraq before God called him home. He was a great man, leader and friend! I will never forget Jason and I'm grateful for the time we spent together. May the love and peace of our Holy Father help guide and confort you thru these difficult times.
To the family of Major Jason E. George:
Jason gave the ultimate sacrifice and will be held in the hearts of Americans forever. I cannot and will not let our fallen heroes be forgotten. My deepest sympathy to you. "Some gave all."
"Don't Let The Memory Of Them Drift Away"
I am in complete shock to learn the news of Jason's death. Jason was a wonderful man and I was lucky to have had him in my life for the time that I did. Jason served his country well throughout the years and will always be remembered. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
Mr & Mrs George:
I had the privilege of attending Michigan with Jason while we were both getting our MBA. I always saw him leading Section 4 and having a good time with everyone around him. I will especially remember being in Michigan Follies with him. May God bless him and his family. My deepest condolences for your loss.
Prayer for Peace
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved, as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
I want to pass on my sincere regrets to the family and friends of MAJ Jason George. He was my fraternaty brother, at Cal State Bakersfield and a dear friend. From one soldier to another. God bless you Jason, you will not be forgotten
My deepest condolences to Jason's family and friends. I still can't believe that Jason is no longer with us. He was always the friendliest face at Deloitte, where we worked together for the last few years. I still remember meeting him for the first time during training, and I was struck by how genuinely friendly and outgoing he was. Jason was incredibly well-liked, respected and talented. He will be missed.
To the Family & Friends of Major George -
I did not know Major George pesonally but having read the information on him on Deloitte's intranet site and reading some of the comments written aboout him in the guest book, I wanted to extend my prayers to you. As an officer in the Army Reserves as well as an employee of Deloitte LLP, I am grateful that he lived the life that he did. His impact on others will keep his spirit alive.

I went to high school with Jason in Tehachapi. Although we weren't close friends Jason made you feel as if you were. He didn't talk down to anyone. It has been 21 years since we have graduated I still know through the messages that are left here Jason was the same great guy that I knew then. That is a great example of the impact that a person can have in peoples lives. Jason left this earth on my sons 13 th birthday and I will forever remember the service to this great country he made. Thank you to Jasons parents for the great son you raised.
I AM SO SORRY TO HEAR OF THE LOSS OF JASON. I MET HIM BRIEFLY IN TEHACHAPI AT THE APPLE FESTIVAL YEARS AGO. HE WAS SUCH A NICE YOUNG MAN, THAT WAS A GREAT PERSON TO HAVE MET. I AM NOT SURPRISED TO HEAR THAT HE SERVED OUR COUNTRY, BUT SAD THAT IT TOOK HIS LIFE. MANY BLESSINGS OF PEACE TO THE FAMILY, AND GOD TO PLACE HIS HANDS OF HEALING UPON YOUR HEARTS.
Jason was a true gentleman and friend. As a fellow rugger at Michigan, Jason and I played side by side. His position on the field attests to his character: "Prop". He was the first to congratulate and supported all of us with his humor and camaraderie. With his passing, a deep void can never be filled. I will miss you dearly, my friend. As we say on the pitch, "Thank you, Sir." God bless you, Jason.
To the family of Jason:
My sincere condolences on your loss. I went to Michigan with Jason and got to know him albeit not as close as some other of our classmates. He was a great guy with larger then life personality and he will be sorely missed. Thank you for raising such a great son and a true hero – my prayers are with you.
To Jason's family;
My prayers are for you. Your son joined the 30th BDE with no reservations and made us all better men the short time he was with us. He has a special place at God's side; maybe to watch over the rest of us during our time here.

My deepeest, heartfelt condolences to the George family. I am happy to have known and worked with Jason. Rest in Peace.
Candy and Hugh, we are so sorry to hear of your loss, what a beautiful son he was. Since moving North last July we seem to only hear of news when we think to pull up the Bakersfield paper. May all your wonderful memories help you through this trying time. Love You.
Even though it has been 20 years since I lived in Tehachapi, remembering Jason has always brought warm feelings to my heart. In addition to all of his other accomplishments, Jason was a fine musician, too. I was privileged to be his teacher for six years and derived great pleasure from his participation in my classes. He added much to my joy of teaching. I will remember his unique humor, his endearing smile, his quiet intensity, and his support for me and the work I was doing. I am filled with great sadness to learn he is no longer with us. To Mr. and Mrs. Mason, I want to say thank you for the privilege of knowing and working with Jason those many years ago, and thank you for raising a son who was courageous, selfless, and dedicated to making this world a better place to be.
Mr. and Mrs Mason:
Jason was a year ahead of me at West Point and a year behind me at Michigan. He stayed with my wife and I when he was applying to the business school. My family was profoundly saddened by Jason's loss. Know that his sacrifice was for a cause that is larger than all of us. Our deepest condolences.

God Bless Jason and family. Thank you for your service and sacrifice for our country. Jason was an amazing person and leader, a True Michigan Man. Go Blue! Our prayers are with you.
We were so sorry to hear of your loss. The thoughts of many are with you at this time of sorrow.
My sincere condolences to Major Jason George's family, friends, and fellow soldiers. Jason was a high school classmate that I was fortunate enough to catch up with over lunch in November. I am amazed even thinking about his courage and strength of character now. He said he was not afraid to die for this country and that he was proud to serve in our military. Jason is one of those rare people who not only reaches their full potential, he surpassed every expectation anyone could have had for him. It was a blessing and an honor to be his friend. Jason always had a huge grin and always managed to make me want to do better myself. Jason will be missed, but he will NEVER be forgotten. To Jason's amazing parents, thank you. Thank you for raising such an amazing man! Sincerely, Maria Jacovino
To the parents and family, I offer my heartfelt sorrow for the death of your loved one. So many times we don’t understand why this has to happen to us but know that you aren’t alone. There are many who have also suffered the death of their loved ones and we know that you will get through the day one minute by minute. When my son was killed in action I thought the world would end but through connection with others who had gone through this terrible tragedy I found that I wasn’t alone. When and if you would like to reach out and talk, vent, cry or just know how to get through each minute of the day please contact me. You are now a Gold Star Family and as such you should know that many of us are here to help and listen. May God bless and comfort you each and every day.

I had the priviledge of meeting Jason and spending time with him through my son-in-law Randy Cestone. Jason was an amazing guy. We will miss him. He is a hero and a great person who has been taken from us way too soon. My prayers go out to his family and friends.
We are profoundly sorry to hear of the great loss you have endured in the passing of your son, Jason, who paid the supreme sacrifice in the service of his country. We never knew him, but we are nonetheless very proud of his proven commitment to the defense of our nation. While we know that no words can ease the burden you bear, we pray that in the days ahead you will find great blessing and solace in the memories you share of his life and legacy. God bless you all.
As a Marine helicopter pilot who served in Viet Nam, the father of a '95 USMA Graduate (and boxer) who is the 2nd Ranger Bn Surgeon having served in both Iraq and Afghanistan as well as a USAFA Graduate and F-15/F-22 Pilot having flown missions over Iraq, I join the family and friends of Jason honoring his service but with profound grief in his sacrifice for the cause of freedom. I hope and pray that all citizens will honor and remember those fallen heroes who died serving their great and just country. I will never forget--Semper Fi!
I am very sorry to hear of Jason's death. We were in the same graduating class in High School. I always remember him as a kind, gentle, outgoing, friendly person. My prayers and thoughts go out to his family. I know he will be greatly missed.
Accounts of your son's goodness and strength render many of us mute in terms of offering words of comfort. However, those who witnessed his grace and character, his wit and kindness present a testimony both of him and of your loving support that shaped the boy and the man he became. Our prayer is that thoughts of the gift you made to the world will in time bring a measure of comfort. God bless you.
JG...I was unbelievably saddened to here about your passing. I remember some great times with you at Hood and feel lucky to call myself your friend. One of the thousands. I don't know anyone who enjoyed life as much as you did. God bless you and your family.
To the Family of Jason George,
I am so sorry for your loss. I did not know your son, but by all accounts he was a kind, intelligent, and highly accomplished person. You must be so proud to have raised such a wonderful human being. Please know that you are in my thoughts.
My deepest condolences for your loss. I worked with Jason only briefly at Deloitte but was struck by his kindness, quiet leadership, and integrity. I will always remember his and your sacrifice to our country. God bless.
Words cannot adequately express my profound sadness upon hearing about Jason's loss. I am an '01 West Point graduate, Iraq war veteran, and now a Deloitte employee. While I did not have the privilege of knowing Jason, I am deeply moved by his selfless commitment to service and inspired by his leadership and sacrifice. In the words of the West Point alma mater, "Well done; be thou at peace."
“We few, we happy few, we band of brothers. For he today that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother; be never so vile. This day shall gentle his condition. And gentlemen in England now abed shall think themselves accursed they were not here, and hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks that fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.” Rest in Peace, my Brother. We will hold the Watch, now. Semper Fidelis.
I would like to express my deepest sympathy to JG's family. I met Jason at Michigan and have nothing but great memories from the times I spent with him. I am very thankful I had the opportunity to know him and be his friend. He will be dearly missed.
God bless you JG
I wish to express my sincere sympathy for your loss. I did not know your son personally, but he seemed like a very honorable gentlemen. I am very thankful for his sacrifice to this country. I wish you and your family GOD's peace and comfort during this your time of need. I have said a prayer that GOD will provide healing to your wounded souls.
To the family of Major George,
I am very sorry for your loss. I was a classmate of Jason at Michigan and played rugby with him. I am moved by the sacrifices he made at this point in his life.
May he rest in peace,
It is hard to find the words to directly relay the sense of pride that I have for being lucky enough to know JG as a friend. He was truly a special person with such an amazing zest for life and I truly believe that he made those around him better through his example.
My wife and I send our love and heart felt condolences to his family.
We will forever hold JG in our hearts and are blessed with the many memories he provided us.

Please know that Jason's story touches all of us. I am thankful for his service but can only imagine the sorrow you must feel. Our hearts go out to you.
I did not have the honor of knowing Mr. George but I came across the story about him on Deloitte's internal website and it brought me to tears. It is men like Jason, and my brother, Thomas who are the real heroes and fought every day (and continue to fight) for this country and our freedom. My brother is overseas in Iraq serving now. We will pray for Mr George and his family. Remember that memory is a gift that cannot and will not destroy.
To the family of Major George, my heartfelt prayers go out to you. I did not know Major George, but I read his story on our Deloitte intranet site. I am grateful for his courage and commitment to this country.

As a Chicago Deloitte employee and Iraq veteran, my heartfelt prayers go out to to Jason's family and friends.
I did not know Jason. I read the article of his loss on Deloitte - which is where I work. He was too young. My heart goes out to his family.
To the George Family and Friends:
I did not have the priviledge of knowing Jason, but am grateful for his courage and commitment to his country. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
To The Family of Jason George:
Let me begin by saluting Jason in his bravery and his patriotism. I have a nephew in the army who has served around the world and most recently in Afganistan. It is men and women like Jason and my nephew that are truly my heros. They have the heart of lions and the souls of angles. My prayers and thoughts go out to you during this time.
I am sorry for your loss. I just returned from D.C. with the specific purpose of visting the vietnam war memorial wall, arlington cemetery, WWII memorial and the korean war memorial for memorial weekend. This country is free because of dedicated soldiers like Jason. Jason is a hero.
To Jason's family:
I am so sorry for your loss. I didn't know your son, but by reading the tributes of others, I can tell he was a wonderful young man. I have two teen age sons, and can only begin to imagine the pain of your loss.
I am thankful for men and women like Jason who "stand in the gap" for us. I am praying that God's grace will be with you during this difficult time.
To the Family of Jason George:
I am employed by Deloitte in New York City and have just read about Jason on our internal website.
I am so very sorry for your loss. I pray that God gives you the strength to get through this difficult time.
My husband is a Marine that was blinded in Iraq in 2004. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. I know you are proud of the amazing man Jason proved himself to be. Those of us that never met him are proud of him also and thank him for our freedom!
As soon as I saw the photo I knew that Jason had gone to West Point, because I had seen my brother in that same uniform. My brother graduated from the Academy in 1995 and Jason and my brother must have known each other. I am sorry for your loss and for the addition of another soldiers whose memory we will honor on Memorial Day.
REST IN PEACE MAJOR GEORGE TO YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS MAY THE MEMORIES OF THIS WONDERFUL SOLDIERS LIFE FILL YOUR HEARTS WITH BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES
GOD BLESS YOU
Dear George Family,
I am a Captain in the Army Reserves and a employee at Deloitte in New York. When I read the article posted on DeloitteNet.com about Major George my heart sank. I imagine that Jason, like most soldiers, knew the risks of his service, and was willing to sacrifice for his country anyway. However, if our destinies were reversed, I would want him to tell my family, "that I love them and miss them. And to be strong through these difficult times, and may the rest of your lives be filled with happiness." I am so sorry for your loss.
My deepest condolences,
I am proud of the commitment that Major Jason George has made to freedom and his courage to upholding dignity for so many others. While I did not have the opportunity to know him personally, I can tell from all the remarkable comments on this site and that he is a great man. I will not forget his sacrifice.
To the family of Major George:
There is no greater gift than one who lays down his life for others. Major George did. Even though I did not know him only through Deloitte news today, I pray that God give you strength to carry on. Jason is indeed one of one of our heros.
To the family of Major George,
Jason gave his all enthusiastically and without reservation to everything he did. Thank you for his service to his country. May the joy of his life help you with your sorrow.
To the family of MAJ George:
I wanted to express my sincere condolences to you. My husband is the chaplain of the 252 and knew MAJ George. He and your son became friends as they trained together and he misses your son's presence. That day hit me hard, and I grieve with you. May the Lord wrap His comforting arms around you.
Michigan and the Hill House wouldn't have been the same without you! You brought lots of fun and happiness to the people around you, including me. Thank you for your service and dedication to our country. We will always remember you.
May your family find peace in their memories of you.
I just learned of Jason's sacrifice through Deloitte's website. I never worked with Jason or any of his Deloitte colleagues; however, I wanted to extend my condolences to Jason's family and friends. His bravery and commitment to us all through service to country will not be forgotten.
Although I had never met Jason and am just learning of his commitment to our country through the Deloitte website tribute, I am touched by the sacrifices he made at this point in his professional and personal life to honor his duty to the Army Reserve. May he rest in peace and know that he and so many other men and women will not be forgotten.
Your dedication to everything you care about was evident to call. Your clients, you team, your friends, the Wolverines, and most of all, your country. Thank you for your service and protection. You were a great person, and my memory of you and the person you were will stay with me for a lifetime. Go Blue!
You did not leave us with a shortage of memories and they are all wonderful! Thanks for adding so much laughter and joy to our lives. We were lucky to have known you and you will be missed terribly.
With love and comfort for your family,
John & Lisa (Mazzoni) Filben
To the Famiy and Friends of MAJ George,
He was a great man, and a great leader. I was on patrol with him on that sad day that I will never forget. Major George faught to the end, but God had better plans for him. The world needs more people like Major George. He was a great guy to work for. I only knew him for a short time, but I will never forget him. Everything happens for a reason. We might not know why now, next week, or next year, but one day we will realize why God chose Major George to go be with him. R.I.P. "Thunderbolt 9"
As a Deloitte employee, I would like to send my condolences to the family. He will be missed.
MAJOR JASON E. GEORGE
You are my hero may god keep you in his arms forever.
To the parents and family of MAJ Jason George. He was a hero, who gave more than anyone can imagine. He was a true hero. I am deployed here in Iraq, and got to meet him, the day before that terrible day. My heart goes out to you. I can't imagine your pain. I am a fellow Californian, and this is my 2nd deployment. As we all like to say, there but the Grace of God go I. Understand that his lord had a need for him in heaven, greater than on Earth. As hard as that is to understand, it is the divine wisdom of our lord.
My thoughts and prayers be with the family and friends of Jason during these times of sorrow. Jason was a fine Engineer Officer and true Kodiak soldier. May the memories of Jason bring you comfort and joy.
From our military family to yours, we would like to thank MAJ Jason George for his service and sacrifice to this grateful country, as well as send our deepest condolences for your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Jason I just wanted to say thank you for your brave and honorable service to a grateful nation. Like so many others you have volunteered to serve our country and protect the vary freedom America was built on. Please know Jason that you like so many other fallen brother and sisters in arms that you will never be forgotten and you are heroes to us all. My nephew PFC Aaron J. Ward also paid the ultimate price on 5/6/08 while on a routine patrol in Al Anbar Province as an MP. His unit was ambushed and came under small arms fire and he was taken from us. Not a day goes by that I do not think of him and all our brave heroes serving in our armed services. I stand tall and salute you Jason and will forever honor the memory of you along with my nephew. To the George family words cannot express enough the pain both our families now must endure and my prayer is that the memory of your brave hero carry you through each day as you cope with this tragic loss. Since the loss of my nephew I have written on every single legacy page of every fallen soldier and included a photo of my nephew. I encourage you to do the same to Aaron's page. I have done this to honor my nephew but to let you know your loved one is not alone and my nephew is with him and they are now in God's gracious hands waiting for us to join them one day. From the bottom of my heart please except my sincere condolences and may the memories of your Hero carry you through each day for he will never be forgotten!
In Memory of my Nephew
PFC Aaron J. Ward (MP-US Army)
KIA 5/6/08 Al Anbar Province,Iraq

Please know how Deeply Sorry I am to learn of the loss of this Brave Soldier.
