Obituary for Jason Michael Townsend

July 7, 1981 - April 29, 2020
San Antonio, Texas | Age 38


Jason was loved very much by his parents, Scott and Mary Townsend, and mother, Terilynn (Meschkat) Townsend, and brother Taylor Cruz. Jason was a devoted son, grandson, brother, nephew, cousin and most of all, a friend to so many. He was born July 7th, 1981 in Houston, Texas. He was a fun-loving child with curly blond hair and full of spirit. Jason attended Southwest Texas for one semester and decided it was not for him. As Jason grew up, he loved inline skating, lots and lots of skating, video games and computers. Which lead him to his job that he loved at a computer store helping people not so good with computers become good with computers. Jason's real passion was photography. He was very good at it and took many pictures at family gatherings and pictures around San Antonio. Jason's special gifts were his gentle soul, great sense of humor, and most of all his devotion to people, which he showed to all of his family and friends. Oh, and that famous Jason smile. 38 years is a short life lived, but Jason lived his by loving those around him and showing it every day. There was never a time that Jason could not be counted on for his friends and always said yes to help someone. Jason's life was influenced by his father, whom he loved most of all. Very much alike at times, and not at others, is what made everyone love to watch the two of them together. Jason's last years were met with challenge, he taught us lessons of what it is like for so many to live with difficultly beyond imagine. Jason wanted to continue to help others that are challenged by NBIA. Jason selflessly donated his body for this cause.
