the roadway. His vehicle hit a utility pole. Jason was ejected from the vehicle. He was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident. He was transported to a hospital in Libertyville where sadly he passed away from injuries to his head.

Alcohol was a contributing factor to the crash although other factors may have been involved.

To All Drivers: If you find that you are drunk or doped up on street drugs or prescription drugs or if you are falling asleep on your feet, do NOT drive. Call a family member or a friend for a ride; or take a taxi; or stay where you are until you sober up; or crawl home on your hands and knees. It will be better for you and for the world if you do.

The Waukegan Police Department is in mourning over the death of their brother. He is described as an aggressive police officer who liked to keep fit. He will be forever remembered.

Jason's loved ones are devastated over his sudden and tragic death. He will be forever mourned.

Jason is survived by many loving comrades, friends and family members including his wife, Katie, and his young daughter, Ava.

Thank you for your service to your country and to your community, Jason.

Pray for all who die by misadventure. They are with us one moment and are gone before we can say goodbye.

Pray that Jason is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
