Jason and his wife Jill had been married for 3 1/2 years and were living a wonderful, happy life with their daughter. On January 15th, 2002 is when everything changed for them.

On that particular day Jason, Jill, Jakie, Jon and Abby were on their way to Houston. It was such a windy day, there were strong gust of wind that would cause his vehicle to rock and make it difficult to keep his car on the highway.

At 'Mile Marker 825' is were the strongest gust of wind forced the car onto the shoulder of the highway, Jason tried to correct his small SUV back to the road, but instead it flipped 5 times going across the median and was then hit by a tractor-trailor truck.

Jill was killed intantly, Jason's skull was cracked open, his neck was severly jarred, and part of his brain fell out onto his sleeve. Everyone else in the car was alright. But nobody expected Jason to survive such trauma.

Jason spent 5 weeks in a hospital before he was able to think correctly and recall enough of the details of the accident to understand that his beloved wife, Jill, had died and the significant impact that event would have on his and Abby's (his daughter) lives.
