Jason and I were good friends as undergraduates. He has always been sweet and sincere, and it's not hard to say that he is the nicest person I've had the pleasure of knowing. I remember telling my professor that I wanted to be just like Jason, as wise as he is, as kind as he is, and as encouraging as he is. He was unquestionably committed to philosophy and learning. His commutes were longer than any others I knew of, yet, after the long hours to and from school, he remained steadfast and eager to learn. You are a good friend Jason, and a wonderful person whom I have always looked up to.
