From Caring Bridge:
Around 10:15AM this morning Jason went into cardiac arrest for a second time. After 45 minutes of CPR and other heroic measures the NIH staff were unable to get his heart to pump again. Jason passed away just before 11AM surrounded by friends and family. He will be cremated here in Maryland early next week prior to making his final journey back to Kentucky. Plans for a larger gathering to celebrate Jason’s life is still in the works but is expected to be at least a few weeks out.
