    Just read that PH Jason Bridger of Tholo Safaris was electrocuted while building his new house and has passed away. I did not know him other than be reputation, as he was certainly well liked and respected in the hunting community.

    He leaves behind a wife and young children.

    Rest in Peace

    My deepest condolences to the whole family Claire.
    Absolutely heart wrenching loss. I can not even fathom....

    This good man has left behind a wife, his girls and his young son.


    A couple of good things and memories we shared

    I only knew him from some time spent together at DSC.

    Condolences and prayers for his family.

    Tragic news, I hunted in Jason's camp twice and got to know him and Claire pretty well. His youngest James was just getting old enough (around four or so) to really learn the important things in life from his father. He was a good man and will be truly missed. RIP.

    Sorry to hear about his accident. It's a heartbreaker, that another wife and child will be without him. Best wishes to them.
