NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. - He was a man recognized for his white hair, big smile and an even bigger laugh (let's not use the cliche word "infectious" here considering his demise). Jason Blackford Swartzbaugh III was a bright man with dry wit. He looked dang good in a fitted suit, even making sweater vests look stylish. Jason could always be seen with a beverage in his hand, usually a Pepsi, but if you caught him just right, you would find coffee and a beer too. He also ate candy like a 6 year old boy, finding it by his chair, in his car cup holders and in his pockets. If pot roast was on the menu, that was his order. Marathon watcher of westerns, the finance man could draw a calculator the same as cowboys draw a pistol. When not watching TCM, he was playing golf or fishing, even spending his vacations volunteering at Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. Jason's favorite line to his children: "ask your mother." Jason Swartzbaugh left this earth on March 19, 2015 at 7:40 PM to join his God, not because he was finished living but because his lungs were. Perhaps he will sing in the never ending choir just as he sang in the Catholic boy's choir when he was 10. A generous giver, Jason donated to community organizations, usually anonymously, including Salvation Army, Red Cross and Golden Harvest. He also made dollhouses for the Head Start Program. But he is most known for being a dedicated family man. A husband that adored his wife of 37 years, they had a relationship of strength and solidarity. He is survived by his wife, Vanessa; his three children, Stephanie Edmiston, 44, Chris Swartzbaugh, 41, Lindsey Swartzbaugh, 30; three granddaughters; sister, two brothers and brother-in-law; and a multitude of nieces, nephews and godchildren. Memorial services will be held 2PM, Monday, March 23, 2015 at Lutheran Church of the Resurrection, 825 Greene Street, Augusta, Georgia.
