age 41 of Sarasota, FL, passed away on April 22, 2016. He was born to Michael B Holderness and the late Judith R. Holderness in Bradenton, FL on September 24, 1974. Jason attended his hometown schools, Bayshore Elementary and Bayshore High School in Bradenton, FL. Jason went into the family business as a realtor in 1995, selling commercial properties for Sara Bay Real Estate. He quickly became a top producing Commercial Real Estate agent in Manatee County. Throughout his successful real estate career, Jason made time to stay involved in community activities, including planting American Flags every 4th of July, taking those with special needs on an annual fishing trip with Community Haven, as well as being an avid supporter of Hope Family Services and playing a primary role in adopting a family in need at Christmas. His career took a turn after a struggle with substance abuse, ultimately leading to his life's calling of helping others by through his work as an addiction counselor. Jason's personal experience motivated and enabled him to successfully help countless individuals and their families fight through and overcome their challenges with substance abuse. Jason co-founded Bodhi Addiction Treatment and Wellness in California, where he not only worked with in-patients, but helped develop an outpatient wellness plan to help ensure a holistic approach to treatment, including counseling, nutrition, exercise and goal setting. Jason was beloved and considered a friend and mentor to many of his clients. Jason had a love for life and a passion for adventure. This, coupled with his desire to help others led him to participate in The Fireball Run, an adventure rally that takes competing teams cross-country while raising awareness and helping recover America's missing children. Jason also loved outdoor adventure, where he enjoyed boating and being on the water from a very young age, as well as a more recently found passion in mountain biking. His love for enjoying life to the fullest was seen in everything he did, and he found joy in spending time with his friends and family. Jason was a loving son and brother, and is survived by his father Mike, his brothers Michael and James Holderness, his sister Mary-Claire Burick, as well as numerous aunts, uncles' cousins, nieces, nephews and many loving friends.
