Remembering Jason Hause, A Life Well LivedSpecial to Salem-News.com
JASON EARL HAUSE March 15, 1977 – March 1, 2015
(SALEM, Ore.) - Jason Hause passed away on March 1st 2015 in Portland, Oregon. Tragically developing complications after a serious motorcycle crash on February 27th in which he was cut off in traffic on the interstate by a careless driver. Jason was 37.
Jason is survived by his parents, father Ken and stepmother Kelly, mother Marianne, twin sisters Amy and Jamie, sister Melissa and brother Joseph. Also his children, Holly, Drake, Grace and newborn Gavyn. Jason also will forever be in the hearts of his Aunts Linda, Kathy, and Dori, his uncle Perry and wife Roxie, numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather William Earl Hause.
Growing up in Irvine California Jason did well in school and had a passion for soccer. He started playing at 7, and at the age of 10 was playing at club level where he was named Best Goalie in Orange County, playing for the Pasadena team. Jason traveled many tournaments in California and other states, even Europe. His mother said, “It was always exciting to see him play, but the losses he always took so personally.”
For his senior year of high school Jason moved to Oregon to live with his father in Coos Bay. There he continued to play soccer. He graduated from Marshfield High School in 1995.
Once in Oregon Jason quickly developed a closer relationship with his father Ken, as well as with other members of the Gypsy Joker Motorcycle Club. He spent many years ‘under their wing’. Always eager to help, and always humble, he was earning respect and many friends.
His dreams finally came true when his father made him build his own Harley Davidson, and he became a Gypsy Joker. Anyone who ever met Jason will never forget him. He had a larger than life personality and a loud and infectious sense of humor, ever the prankster. He also had a serious and capable side. You could count on him.
Children always delighted to see Jason. They were always greeted with a robust laugh and a rub on the top of the head. Jason loved his own children, even more than they’ll ever know.
He loved his entire family, had friends from all walks of life, he loved his beloved pit bull ‘Peanut’. People in the motorcycle community from Australia and all over the United States are deeply saddened at Jason’s loss. He was respected and well liked.
Jason’s family and friends would like to extend a great deal of thanks to each of the staff in the Surgical Trauma ICU at OHSU who helped care for Jason. “They seemed to really care about Jason,” said a family member. “We thank them also for their sincere and non-judgmental compassion in dealing with all of us!”
Friends and family will celebrate Jason's life on Saturday, March 14th at the GJMC Clubhouse. A special pack ride to honor the fallen brother will gather in Kmart (25th & Mission in Salem) parking lot at 11:30 a.m. Saturday morning, departing shortly thereafter and continue to the clubhouse.
