Jason Leon Schaefer
Jason Leon Schaefer, 33, of Deep River died tragically in Longmont, Colorado. Jason was born July 1, 1988, in Connecticut where he grew up. Jason worked at the USPS in Deep River and in Longmont, Colorado.
He is survived by his wonderful son Chase, his mother Lori Hebert and stepfather Chris of Deep River, and his father Ernest Schaefer and stepmother Debbie in Charlestown, New Hampshire. He is also survived by his paternal grandmother Joanie Tuthill; brother Patrick Schaefer (Matty) of Connecticut; aunt Vicki Dorothy (Paul); cousins Paul Dorothy (Lindsay), Kevin Dorothy (Carmen), and Kodi Dorothy of Connecticut; stepbrother Brandon Hebert of Connecticut; stepsister Christen Brawley of Vermont; and Uncle Kenny from Deep River.
Jason’s life was full of adventure, and he was free spirited. He was a great son; always honest, loyal, and giving; and a wonderful friend to all he met. His smile and laugh were so infectious. He loved all sports, especially the Carolina Panthers. He was very competitive when he played and coached his softball team to a championship and he was named MVP.
He had an impeccable work ethic and even competitive at work (ask his coworkers), also he was an incredible gamer, and you can see this in his son even now. Jason had so many talents and always loved to help people. He loves tacos, pizza, and cherry tomatoes and Mom’s turkey chili. Mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving were his favorite. He loves jokes and pranks and to wear crazy hats and sweaters at Christmas. When Jason got up in the morning, his hair was always sticking up; he didn’t care. It was always a good day. We will all miss him so much.
He was the best son in the world. “You are my pride and joy Kiddo.” Our hearts will be forever broken.
A celebration of his life will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 13, at The Carriage House, 245 Main Street, Deep River. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Jason’s honor to the local chapter of New Horizons Domestic Violence Services (www.newhorizonsdv.com).
