Jason A. Knapp

York/Clemson SC - It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that we petitioned the court to have our beautiful son, Jason Andrew Knapp, declared legally deceased. The petition was signed on January 31, 2018.

Jason, had been missing since April 12, 1998, where he was attending Clemson University in Clemson, SC at the time of his disappearance. He was born December 30, 1977 in York, the beloved son of Deborah A. (Lucabaugh) Boogher and John E. Knapp.

He was a 1996 graduate of Central York High School and attended GMI Engineering and Management Institute in Flint, MI for his freshman year. He then transferred to Clemson University in his sophomore year where was majoring in Mechanical Engineering. He was a member of the Army ROTC and had just pledged to the elite Pershing Rifles 4th Regiment, Company C-4 just days before his disappearance.

Jason liked to go mountain biking, target shooting and spending time with his friends. His goal after graduation from college was to be able to work for NASCAR.

He had worked as a busboy at the Keystone Diner in New Oxford during high school and at GM Truck and Bus Group in Baltimore in his freshman year in college.

In addition to his parents, he is survived by his step father, Barry L. Boogher; step sister, Cassandra (Boogher) Terrasi and husband, Christopher; and their children, Zachary, Dominic and Anthony, as well as other extended family members and friends.

He was predeceased by maternal grandparents, Artie C. and Hazel R. (Buchmyer) Lucabaugh; and paternal grandparents, Frederick R. and Marie J. (Lindsay) Knapp III.

A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 14, 2018 at First Church of the Brethren, 2710 Kingston Road, York, with Pastor Keith Hollenberg, officiating. A visitation will be held from 2 to 3 p.m. Saturday at the church. A memorial service will also be held at 2 p.m. Saturday April 21, 2018 at the Military Heritage Plaza at Clemson University, Clemson SC.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Jason Knapp Memorial Endowed Scholarship, c/o Clemson University Foundation, 110 Daniel Drive, Clemson SC 29631 or the Kristen Foundation, c/o Joan Petruski, 2330 Bonnie Butler Way, Charlotte, NC 28270.

We would like to thank everyone who has helped in one capacity or another in our search these past twenty years. We especially want to thank Joan Petruski of the Kristen Foundation for her undying support. We have declared him dead but will continue our search for the truth to find out what has happened to our son.

I was searching the OBITS for a friend of mine whose father died on Friday-and I came across your son. I am so very sorry for what you have been through over the last 20 years. I can't even fathom or understand how you made it through each day. My step-son was shot and killed in 2012 @ 21 years old-and although tragic- I now realize how grateful I should be to have seen and touch him one last time. I will be praying for you in hope that you do find Jason someday. Until then-please always know he is in the protecting arms of our Lord, Jesus.
with deepest sympathy,

Prayers for you all in what continues to be a very difficult time. Jason was a schoolmate and friend to me. He had an infectious smile and will continue to be missed. Wherever Jason is now, may the Lord be with him.
