Jason W. Denson
Jason Wayne Denson was granted a new badge of honor in the early morning hours of November 9, 2020. His final days were surrounded by family and friends that Jason had touched in some way or another throughout his adventurous and memorable life. He remained anchored even with being diagnosed with stage four brain cancer. Jason battled for three years courageously, whereas others would have sunk. He walked through life with honor, pride, laughter and strength embedded in the man that he was.
People respected and admired him for his sense of humor, quick wit, loyalty, and everything he stood for. Jason, a Boy Scout at heart, loved to camp, be in nature, and loved it even more when he spent it with family. Better known as the “Music Man”, his love and knowledge for music was untouchable. He had a knack for knowledge. You could ask him one thing and he would tell you 10 things. He always had an answer and left you with a piece of him. What a humble and kind man he was and we all truly loved and respected him. Your name will never be in vain, Jason.
His adventures started on July 10, 1974 in Cape Girardeau, MO where he lived until grade school. His family then relocated to Mandeville, LA where he spent the greater part of his childhood. Upon graduating high school in 1992, Jason enlisted into the U.S. Navy. He served four years of active duty during Desert Shield on the USS Oldendorf traveling all over the world. After earning an honorable discharge with many service medals, he found his way to Houston, TX where he met Heather, his wife, best friend, and life partner. Jason and Heather traveled all over, lived in many places and made countless memories. They walked through life together touching many people on their way. Not only was he a wonderful son, loving husband, best friend to many, and a respectable soldier, he was the ultimate fighter. We all know that we will never have another Jason Denson, another Den Dog, or another JJ. We should feel honored that God gave us such a gift.
Jason is survived by his loving wife of 23 years, Heather Denson; devoted parents Susan and Bruce Gillespie; and Bill and Deborah Denson; his siblings Eric, Aaron, Kyle, Nathan, Phillip, Nick and Jacqueline; as well as many aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews; and lots of cousins.
He surrounded himself with many friends from all over. He loved God and country.
We will be honoring Jason on Monday, December 7, 2020, 10:45am at 10410 Veterans Memorial Dr., Houston, TX, 77038.
