Jason married Melissa Thompson on February 3, 2006.

Melissa also had a daughter, Tessa Stock, from a previous relationship and Jason loved her like his own. Jason and Melissa had one daughter together, Paige, and this finished out all his beautiful girls in his life. He loved his daughters very much, he had a special bond with each of them for different reasons, like going to watch Chloe in all her sports they both loved, taking late night cruises with Paige, or the talks Tessa would have with him because he was her go to.
Jason always loved to ride motorcycles and snowmobiles throughout his teen years and into his 20's. He liked to read and had every Steven King book available and many sports magazines. Football was the sport he liked the most and he loved the Chicago Bears.
