Occasionally, I receive a message that someone has touched this page. I always am brought back to the reality that Jason is in heaven and not privy to our douldry lives. I then think that I must thank God for sharing him with us, that we all truly miss him, and that I continue to pray for Bob and Dee, the parents who didnt get to spend as much time with him as anticipated. God bless, Jason! You truly do live on in the hearts that knew you!

Dear Dr Emma ~

We were away in Chicago over the holidays and I never heard this tragic news until yesterday when I had an appt with Dr Danny E. I am at a complete loss of words and am filled with immense sadness for you and your family. I wish I could say or do something to make it easier ~ yet I know there are no words or deeds that can make it better. Please know you and your family are in our prayers ~ and we will also be praying that these horrible murderers are found and brought to justice.

I did not know Jason. I am just a DC resident who can never forget that horrible crime. Please know that some of us will remember his name even though we never knew him. David Pitts, SW DC.

You are now in my prayers and wishes for strength, peace and healing going forward- and I will not stop my petitions on your behalf, ever.

I am so very, very sorry.

Dear Dr. Emma,
With your skill, empathy and humanity you have, over the years, always been there to help me deal with adversities in my life. I wish I could do that for you in this time of unbelievable loss. It sounds like Jason shared something so very special with his father. The ability to touch lives with caring, sincerity, and humor. So I know at least one thing: that the many who so admire you are sending all their wishes to you for strength and healing. I among them...

December 28, 2012
To Jason's family - What do you say to the people who are responsible for bringing one of the most bravest, loyal, caring and hysterical people into the world when he's been lost to them far too soon? Other than, Thank you for raising such an upstanding man who I was lucky enough to call my friend. Jason was always helping someone out with something regardless of the circumstance or situation. I think that it's safe to say that his greatest good deed was to spend his entire life making unbelievably strong friendships so that everyone, from all walks of life felt that Jason was one of their best friends. And in doing that when the time came for him to go, those friends would come together and provide the most support and love that's physically and emotionally possible to his family in this time of tragedy and sorrow. I am going to miss Jason so much. The only solace I have is when I hear his voice telling me about how we need to hang out more...Put in a good word with the man upstairs Jason - if he'll listen to anyone, it'd be you.
December 28, 2012
Dearest Hillarie and Family,
We can never get our minds around such a tragedy, only our hearts through the brokenness. From your heartbroken sister, one of many...with kindness and love, Vicki Goodman

December 27, 2012
Dear Dr. And Mrs. Emma and Max, I went to McLean with Jason many years ago but have never forgotten how amazing of a person he was. I have some very found memories of those days. Please know my heart is with you all during this time and Jason will forever look over all of us and be there to help guide us on our journey through life.
December 27, 2012
Dee & Family, So sorry for your loss. When reading Max's post on face book it took me five times to comprehend what he was saying. I couldn't believe it. We are all praying for you.
December 27, 2012
My deepest condolence to your family. Jason was an amazing man and best friend to my sister Elise! He will be greatly missed!
December 27, 2012
Jason (who we lovingly called "Emma" or "The Dude" was an amazing person. Kind, compassionate and giving with such a big heart. The time that Frank and I spent with Jason we will never forget. He will truly be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Emma family. Blessings in love and light.

Dear Dr. Emma and family,
My heart goes out to you in this sad, sad time.
December 27, 2012
I couldn't put into words how saddened I was to hear the news of your son and brother, Jason. I have listened for many years how proud Max is to have such a charismatic brother and how proud Bob is to have such an adventurous ambitious son. Bob couldn't have been a prouder father than when speaking of his boys! These many years of family stories have shown me what a respectful, kind, caring, loving and strong family you have all become. This unity is what will get you through this tough time. I know no words will ever bring closure because I've never known a family less deserving of this nightmare. But I am so appreciative to have gotten to know the Emma family. I am so truly sorry. With all my heart. I will keep you and Jason in my heart and my prayers.
December 27, 2012
My best friend through High School and forever my closest brother in friendship. We had too many good times for me to even remember and will have many more good times when I see him again. I not only loved him, our bond was as strong as a bond could get in all of the good times that we shared. I will miss him, and knowing that I will see him again helps me find peace. It's always the greatest that are taken young by God because God want's them closer to him and in my belief to prepare a table for those of us that knew he was the greatest. Jason, I will miss you until my last breath and I will make sure that my life is not lived in vain so you can look down over my shoulder and be proud of the accomplishment's I set out to do. I will forever love you and forever reminisce in the amazing times we had. Take care my friend, my brother, and now an angel to all of us; protecting our way. I will, see you again.
December 27, 2012
Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. We hope that the love and closeness of family and friends carries you through this unimaginably difficult tragedy.
December 27, 2012
Dearest Hilarie, Bob and Max. We share in your grief and sorrow during this time. May God bless and grant you peace. With Great Affection, Holly, Garry and Lillian.
December 27, 2012
Dear Dr. Emma and family,

Our deepest sympathy to you in this tragedy. Words fail.
December 27, 2012
Bob & Hilarie, we are heartbroken over your loss, and pray for God to give you strength. Please know that we love you very, very much.
December 27, 2012
Bob, Dee and Max, Jason made quite the impression on me. He reminded me some of my fraternity friends in college. I think I could be instantly twenty years younger in his presence. I have lost a friend, but I cannot fathom what it's like to lose a relative this young, this way. I guess it is only our memories that will ever ease the pain.
December 27, 2012
Bob,Dee & Max, there are no words that Laurel and I can find to express the loss of Jason from our lives. His warmth, friendship and humor will be greatly missed. The memories of his passionate enthusiasm for work and fun will be with us always.
December 27, 2012
Dr Emma-
My father, along with my uncles, work at WGCC and he was pretty distrurbed when he heard of your loss. I'm truly sorry and I will keep you and your family in my prayers to remain strong during these difficult times.

God Bless you all!
December 27, 2012
I am so sadened to here of Jason's passing. I worked with him at SNO and the moment we met we were friends. That was his doing , truly a very nice man. RIP Jason
December 27, 2012
Keeping all of you in my thoughts and in my prayers. Jason held a very, special place in the hearts of many - including mine. May God Rest his Soul.
December 27, 2012
Dear Emma Family & Friends,

How heartbreaking to hear of the news of your beloved Jason's passing. Although I did not know him personally, I had heard of him through my daughter, Katie Nash. She described Jason as full of life, kind, compassionate, fun-loving and a devoted friend to all. I prayed and offered my Christmas mass prayers to Jason and his family for God's comfort, healing, peace and presence in all things. May all of the wonderful memories of Jason keep him forever in your hearts and minds and may God surround him and you with His great light and abundant love. God bless you all and bring you great comfort during these most difficult days. Our thoughts and prayers are with you always.

Most sincerely,
December 27, 2012
Dee,
I'm a lady who worked with Jason at Simplified Software Online. He and I often discussed our faith and he always concluded that "you and my mom are just alike...a little bit out there." We now know without a doubt that Jason knows his mamma "had it right." He's in heaven based on his own confession and Act 16:31.

Jason was the best. He gave great from-behind hugs especially when I needed them the most. Please know I will be praying for your entire family that your mourning will somehow be sweet and that the "beauty" will quickly come. God bless you especially now.
December 27, 2012
Dr. E,
There aren't words to express how very sorry I am for your loss. I am thinking of you and your family.
December 27, 2012
Dee, you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers during this most difficult time. Please let us know if we can help in any way at all.
December 27, 2012
Dearest Bob, Dee, and Max-
I pray you have God's strength and spirit of love and peace during this unfathomable time. Jason was blessed with such a wonderful family, and a blessing in his own right. We will long remember his smile, laugh, and energetic spirit. One of my favorite holiday memories, repeated year after year, is seeing him, Alan, and Max walking in Teri's door after a long day of "hunting," amidst giggles and wistful smiles! Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers! Love you all, Mark and Tiffany Gwillim, Hunter, Morgan, and Cali Hudson
December 27, 2012
Bob, our hearts go out to you and your family during this time of tremendous loss. May your memories of Jason be of great comfort and help to ease the pain. Love, Deborah & Kirk
December 27, 2012
To Dr. Emma -- I consulted you ten years ago during great personal distress and, with the jump start of your encouragement, have earned my way back to happiness. I can only express my deep sorrow in learning of your terrible loss -- in just now realizing who this young man belongs to. The good you do comes round again. You will be washed in the love of caring people as you struggle with your grief. With so many others, I offer you and your family what comfort and peace we can.
December 27, 2012
Dee and Max,
Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers throughout this difficult time. Please don't hesitate to let me know if you need absolutely anything. Lots of love to you and your family. May your memories of Jason bring you peace.
