Jason was an avid deer hunter. He loved being outside in nature more than anything and could ride for hours on his 4 wheeler thru the woods. He had already begun a big vegetable garden for this year.
Jason was a storyteller; he always could tell a tale about some of his hunting adventures. His stories would bring tears to your eyes laughing. He was fun to be around.
Jason graduated Houston High School in 1995. Later on, he pursued a career in Construction Management from the University of Southern MS. His first Project Management position was restoring the First Presbyterian Church in Jackson MS. He stated that he loved doing work to further the Lord's kingdom.
Some of his other works were Project Manager for the restoration and construction for The Mill Project and new dorms at MS State University, the Pinnacle at Jackson Place in Jackson MS, Marriott City Center Hotel in Macon GA and the most recent was the completion of Swayze Stadium at the University of MS.
He was a Board Member of the University of Southern MS Board of Civil and Project Engineering. He was a frequent speaker to the construction classes at the University.
Jason leaves his wife, Kimberly Johnson Lee, and his 2 children, Lauren Elizabeth Lee, age 11, and Matthew Garrison Lee, age 9 and step daughter Kamron Johnson (granddaughter Rylie). He also leaves his parents, Sandra and Larry Lee of Calhoun City and a sister, Melanie Sanderson (Paul) of Huntsville AL and niece and nephew Molly and Luke Sanderson.
Preceding him in death were his grandparents, Maggie and Guy Hendrix from Big Creek MS and Jean and Jr Lee of Calhoun City MS.
There will be a Graveside Memorial Service at Shiloh Baptist Church at a later date.
