"Personally I never got to meet Jason, but thru a friend of mine I found out that he attended to the same High School that I did (Escuela Luis Melendez Rodriguez, Hatillo, PR) and I just wanted to stop by and express my condolences’ to his family and friends. I lost a couple of friends in this war, and I know that is extremely difficult for the families, I hope that God is getting them the support they need. Jason will never be forgotten, God bless the family and I can promise you that every Puertorican Soldier that I encounter will know his story.

"Jason, yo se que desde el cielo tu puedes ver todo el dolor y la conmocion que tu partida ha dejado, yo estoy seguro que si tu pudiera haberlo evitado lo hubieras hecho por que tu eras un hombre de principios y dedicacion al tomar el camino que mucho ni se atreven a mirar; El servir en las fuerzas armadas y ir a combate donde tu no sabes quien te quiere ver vivo o muerto. A la familia de Jason comenzando por su mama China, Veronica, Zory, Carlos y a la esposa de Jason; Acuerdense que no es como el murio, si no como el vivion con ustedes cuando estuvo en la tierra. Ya he hido dos veces a Iraq por 15 meses cada vez y nunca le he podido encontraR una explicacion a por que estamos en un lugar que hay tanto odio a los soldados que tanto arriesgan sus vidas para ayudar a alguien que no conocen y que lo mas seguro nunca vuelvan a ver. Cada vez que me monto en el avion para ir a ese lugar que nunca quisiera volver, por que no solo me quita el tiempo que puedo compartir con mi familia; si no tambien a mis amigos de el alma que tanto compartimos cuando creciamos. Por eso nunca puedo dejar de pensar en los Hermanos caidos que tanto han sacrificado por un ideal que a lo mejor ellos no esten de acuerdo pero es un modo de vida para poder traer el pan de cada dia a sus familias. JASON SIEMPRE TE LLEVARE EN MI MENTE Y CORAZON, MI HERMANO DE EL ALMA. QUE DIOS TE TENGA A SU LADO."
SSG MORALES (CANO) of FORT HOOD, TEXAS

"A JASON, QUE DESCANSES EN PAZ HERMANO, YOUVE COMPLETED YOUR MISSION WITH ALL YOU COULD GIVE AND FOR THAT WE THANK YOU INMENSILY, A LA FAMILIA, QUE DIOS LES COLME DE FUERZA Y ENTENDIMIENTO. I REMEMBER JASON ALWAYS BEING HAPPY AND HAVING A GOOD TIME, I HOPE THE FAMILY IS ABLE TO REMEMBER HIM THAT SAME WAY, I KNOW HE'LL WANT LIKE THAT. ITS AN HONOR TO HAVE MET JASON."
RAFAEL AGUEDA (BALU) of BURLINGTON, NC

"Wow, Jason ya van 2 a~os y tres meses y no sabes cuanto te extrano. Tu partida esta intacta en mi. Aun no lo supero. Thanks to people that leave their message and the people who really care about my brother and my family. Jason, I will always love you and I will always miss you. See you
Your little sister"
