    I haven't seen it posted on here yet, but I got a call earlier tonight from a friend of mine in the industry and he told me Jason passed away this morning.

    There are plenty of rumors as to what has happened, I am sure the cause will be confirmed soon, but he was on a sheep hunt.

    Very sad news! I am shocked, spent a fun evening out with him and friends last year at SCI, he was my age, fit and healthy.... My sincere condolences to his family and friends.

    Very sad news. I saw a tv show that told the story of his company and how he started it.

    Way too young. I was moved by his recent story of taking a huge and elusive sheep with his young son. So sorry for his family and friends.

    This is just tragic. I have always been very impressed by his initiative and courage to do what he did - in business and life! An inspiration to others I am sure.
