We Remember

JOLLY, Jason Thomas

Passed away peacefully at his home, on December 12, 2015 at the age of 34 years. He was surrounded in love, by family, friends and the caring staff with Lifestyle Equity Society.

He is survived by his mother, Bonnie Langland, father Chris Jolly, sisters Sarah and Janel Jolly and extended family.

Jason stole time, living well beyond anyone’s expectations. He was a force to be reckoned with, not easily forgotten; had an infectious laugh and smile that we will always remember; and showed incredible resilience in facing multiple challenges.  He showed us that even with great limitations there is a life to be lived, and to be lived well and unconditionally.

It took a large community of folks to raise Jason. Our family sincerely thanks each one of you for supporting him, in his and our journey.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Jason’s memory to the Community Recreational Initiatives Society (CRIS Adaptive Adventures), Box 25141 Mission Park PO, Kelowna, BC V1W 3Y7. A celebration of Jason’s life will be held December 30, 2014 at 1:00 pm at Springfield Funeral home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC.

    Dear Bonnie, Hugh and family:
    Barry and I send our deepest sympathy. We never really lose those who are dear to us. Their familiar voices whisper to us when we are alone. Their images return to us in dreams. And though at first we are saddened by their departure, in time our sorrow fades and is replaced by vivid memories of happy times spent together. The realization that those memories will live on within us is comforting and allows us to find peace. Sincerely Ruth and Barry

  • Tara Graham says:

    I spent time with Jason a very long time ago when I was a student at Bankhead Elementary School, I volunteered in Sue and Kirk Holmberg’s classroom. I remember my time with Jason fondly. I am so sorry for your loss.

  • Kirk and Susan Holmberg says:

    I am sorry for your loss. I so remember having Jason as a student in my class, back in the 1990’s He certainly did outlive the odds. Tara Cronin sent me this….I will dig out some pictures of him. I am glad to have known him the little time I did. ( We have been in Oregon since we left Kelowna )

  • Annette Mattiasch says:

    I heard the news only late yesterday that Jason died. Today I was able to watch the video of the service for Jason. Though I never met Jason, I was deeply moved by hearing his two sisters speak about their brother and about the influence and impact he had on their lives. Chris and Bonnie, as parents you are exceptionally wonderful in the way you’ve raised your family. My heart goes out to you during this time of grief, but bright is the light of the star named Jason, shining in the universe.

  • Brendamacdonald says:

    Dear Bonnie, Chris and family. I had recently found out that Jason had passed and was so sad to have missed his memorial. It was so many years ago that he was in my kindergarten class but I will never forget what a gift he was to the children in the class and to me. We learned that you didn’t have to hear, see, talk, or even move a lot to be important and worth loving. He added so much laughter and joy for life to the classroom. I will never forget him and send my deepest condolences and my respect to you all for giving Jason all the love and support that he had.
