Owner/Director of Operations
Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia (Buckhead Community) Jason was literally raised and reared in the funeral home. For generations his family opened their doors to the community when in a time of need. Jason at age 14 started to help open those doors when he joined the staff and at that point dedicated his life to helping serve families see light at their darkest times. A 2003 Honor Graduate of Gupton-Jones College of Funeral Service, Jason was ready to follow indefinitely his heart and make a lifetime career in helping others. After the family sold the business to a large corporate entity, Jason left the company and has resided in South Florida since 2015.
When moving to South Florida Jason had the opportunity to go to work for the oldest funeral home in Wilton Manors, Florida and worked there from 2015-2018 during which time he started a memorial planning service to assist families who wanted to memorialize services "outside of the box". During his tenure there he was most blessed to have met families who would later become close friends of both he and his life partner, Attorney George Castrataro, whom he also met in 2015. After dedicating himself to families of South Florida Jason along with others felt the need to open Life Celebrations, Funerals and Cremation Center. In addition to Jason's partner and family his close friend, "Chief" had become one of his largest supporters pushing him to follow his dreams and continue his families legacy. Jason announced in January 2018 the start of Life Celebrations, Funerals and Cremation Center, a unique and personal center offering families and friends a service unparalleled to anything in the area.
When not at working, Jason can be found easily in town where he and George are both extremely active. Jason became a member of the Lion's Club in 2014, Rotary in 2013, Knights of Columbus in 2014, and Appointed to the Board of the Gay Men's Chorus of South Florida in 2016. Prior to his relocating Jason was active in several other organizations which he attributed to his families name sake.
Jason and George live and both work in the Fort Lauderdale and Wilton Manors area. They have 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 sharks, and over 20 saltwater fish within 3 saltwater tanks. Jason is Catholic by faith and attends a number of Catholic churches in the area.
