My sympathy to Jason's family....Jason was a class act and world qualified entertainer. I was fortunate enough to meet him in Toronto after he completed a Magnolia Electric Co show. He was kind and incredibly humble for a man with such enormous talents. I still wear a TShirt with the Magnolia Elec. Logo once in awhile. I'd be lying if I said it (shirt) didn't remind me of the complete tragedy in losing Jason. Thank you Jason....Thank you for putting bits and pieces of my own life into perspective....Almost was Good Enough....Once......
Jason, I only wish I had found you and your music before your untimely passing. Over the years, I've found it increasingly difficult to come upon current music that moves my soul - and you were here all this time. I'm at a loss of words to describe how powerful your legacy has been and will continue to be to me, so I'll stop while I'm ahead. Thank you SO very much, and I hope that you are at peace now.
You have opened worlds for me that no poet nor scholar ever could. May your spirit cling to "that great highway moon."
so sorry for your loss,may you be consoled by these words."Like a man whom his own mother keeps comforting,so I myself shall keep comforting you people."..isah.66:13....q
Sadly, I hadn't heard of Jason until a few days after his untimely passing. Since that day I have been listening to only his music and to my amazement, am discovering still a new beautiful song or two daily. I have been moved, astonished, fallen hard for his music and lyrics and drawn to tears for this is the sound of all-soul expression and I already in this short time a sorrowful fan.
Sending the warmest, most supportive thoughts and love to the Molina family from Germany.
Jason, the world should have embraced you but many hadn't the destiny to find you until now. You and your music will forever be cherished.
I am buying all your LP's.... thank you for coming into my life.
May you cross into the most beautiful place and be at peace.
We are so sad that you are gone. We always thought you would make it out. It's easier now, We love you.
Rest in peace, Jason Molina. Your words touched me in a way that few ever will. They will be a part of me forever.
I'm very very sad....gone but not forever!
Underneath this box, there is a helpful hint for people if they need help finding the right words to express their sympathies and condolences. I would suggest that the right words are most likely located in Jason's timeless, heartbreaking and ultimately uplifting songs. I doubt a more articulate chronicler currently wields a pen. During this period of public grief from those of us who knew your loved one through his music alone, or through meeting him as he traveled through our towns playing his wonderful songs, I have been thinking about the people who truly knew him and are mourning him as a son, a brother, a friend, a grandson and a husband. Your loss is far greater than those of us who lost an artist and a voice. I hope our sympathies are appreciated with that awareness. Those of us who didn't know him at all or only knew him professionally are saddened because of how phenomenally gifted he was and how much his art meant to us. It's difficult to lose him because of how much his work means to us, but I know it's nothing compared to how much he meant to you. Please know we are thinking of you during this time.
my very first favorite singer.
I am so, so sorry to hear about his passing! He was a rising star that was never seen or appreciated by most. He knew how to touch and pierce a person's soul!
I now can't stop listening to "I've Been Riding with the Ghost".
He'll be very missed! My sympathy to his wife and family.
We saw him and the band play in London England a few Septembers back. A transcendental talent. You shall shine on Jason. Go in peace buddy.
To the Molinas,
My heart is saddened by the loss of Jason. He was so talented, intelligent & a genuine person, who was truly my first love. My thoughts are with you, and know he will be cherished and missed! Shannon Dickson
Jason's music saved my life, and I don't mean that lightly. "Didn't It Rain" got me through my darkest periods, and I will be forever grateful. Thanks for everything.
Back then, I used to look back and say "I've been listening to Jason Molina for years." When he came to San Francisco somewhere in the early
2000's, I burned bridges to stand on his. The only thing holding me up needed support too.
A friend of mine spotted Jason first. My legs shaked in his direction.
"You're Jason Molina, right?"
"Look man, I just want to tell you how much your music means to me. Your albums are literally the only thing I've been listening to...for like five years. Actually just the other day I was thinking 'I gotta listen to something else...'"
I hated myself for falling into those words. I'd always let Jason say the things I couldn't.
I looked shamefully off to the side. His eyes fixed on me like lightning.
Our soul conduit.
With a flash, his arms crashed around me.
And he held on tight.
Ten years later, what he said next is crippling me now.
"I love you brother."
"I love you too, man."
I learned how to keep a lamp trimmed. But the North Star shone too bright. Reflecting only the light of him, our everlasting night.
Born out of Nick Drake's updated ruin. Jason's leaving in a much outdated style.
"No one knows you but the rain in the air. Don't you worry, they'll stand and stare."
With a glittering flash in my eye, anyone can see i'm not alright. My soul truth has gone away. Who will help me try and stay?
Ride with the ghost, but make room for two. Underneath your star, never a moon so blue.
Jason wrote the saddest music that ever made me happy. It got me through some dark days in my life. Thank you for that.
glad to have known ya...
May you find comfort in the Hearer of prayer at this time. Psalm 65:2
May Jason family find peace in your time of sorrow.May his fond memories stay close to your hearts.1Corinthians1:3.
I do not know why such a talented and kind person should suffer. His music is beautiful and profound. My thoughts are with you now.
RIP, Jason...thanks for the music

Condolences to the Molina family on the loss of Jason. We were pals in jr high and AKHS. I remember when he got his first bass guitar. It made me want to get a bass guitar, too! But I never had the talent for music the way he did. He introduced me to a lot of cool music back then. I wont forget that. RIP Jay
A kind and generous soul. You don't have to suffer anymore. Rest in Peace and Peace be with your family.

Dear Molina family, I am so very sorry for the loss of Jason. It has proved to be a comfort to some people just to see in the Bible a text such as the one found at Isaiah 61:1, 2, since it expresses God's desire for humans to receive comfort.
J.M. is one of the greats. Phenomenal heart. Extraordinarily clear and brave. So sad to hear you're gone. And yet, somehow, it is beautiful. In the end, that is the only way to understand it.
Mr Molina, Aaron and Ashley, I am so sorry for your loss. He was also a loss to more people that you may know. My thoughts are with you and the rest of your family.
Bill, Will be missed by all. Rest in peace Bill.
What a sad,sad story from such a talented young man. Deepest Sympathy to the Family.
Mr. Molina, So sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you and your family.
You and your family are in my prayers. No one should have to bear the loss of a child. I am very sorry for your loss.
Your family are in our thoughts and prayers
The Shlapack family
So sad to hear the loss of your son. A parent should not have to bury a child. You are in my prayers, Billie.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
I offer my sincere condolences. Take comfort in knowing that God cares for you and invites you to look to him for comfort. (1 Peter 5:6,7)
I am so sorry for the loss of your loved one. Please find peace and comfort in Psalms 65:2.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
He will certainly turn to the prayer of those stripped [of everything], And not despise their prayer.- Psalms 102:17- May the friends and family be comfort by the words above. I am sorry for your loss.
