Jason Randall Bushong Obituary
ODESSA Jason Randall Bushong was born October 26, 1987 in Odessa, Texas. He joined Jesus and others he loved on May 8, 2011. Jason graduated from Levelland High School with honors in 2006 where he played varsity basketball and golf. He attended Frank Phillips College on a golf scholarship, and worked as an Independent Petroleum Landman for the past two years. Jason was a member of Ranchland Heights Baptist Church, where he taught Sunday school and was active with the youth group. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Jim Bushong, and maternal grandparents Don and Fay Allison.

Known as a caring and compassionate person, Jason was a kind soul who never met a stranger. He was a "gentle giant" with a sweet spirit who hugged freely and loved deeply. A loyal friend to many and a dependable caregiver to his family, Jason was a "rock" in times of need and was always willing to help. His smile could light up the room, while his wit and humor brought laughter to many. He loved the Lord, his family (especially his niece Mallary), his friends whom he considered his family, and his dog Daisy. His happiest times were spent with his love Kaleigh, playing basketball and golf, coaching Little Dribblers Basketball, helping the youth at church and church camp, working on cars and stereos, and spending time with friends. Jason's ministry, testimony, and memory will live on, as he lives in our hearts forever.

Jason is survived by his father, Randy Bushong; mother, Kitrena Bushong; sister, Renee Pettigrew and husband, Shae; niece, Mallary; and grandmother, Shirley Bushong; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins; and a multitude of friends.

The family will receive friends at Acres West Funeral Home on Friday, May 13, 2011, from 6p.m. to 8p.m. A memorial service to honor Jason's life will be on Saturday, May 14, 2011, at 10a.m. at Calvary Baptist Church, 8644 Andrews Highway, Odessa, Texas, with Pastor Gary Douglas officiating.
