Jason was born on February 11, 1978. At the age of 17 months, he was adopted by Jim and Elaine Pollock. Jason loved growing up on the farm. He and his sister, Stephanie, lived to play outside with the neighbor kids and their cousins. He spent many hours on his 4 wheeler and snowmobiling. He played on the Holy Cross Little League team as their catcher. His best memory was when his team was able to play a game with the Ghost Players at the Field of Dreams. He began fishing at a young age, one of his lifelong favorite hobbies. He enjoyed working on cars, cooking, gardening, morel hunting, and tinkering with his Dad. He was an avid Iowa Hawkeyes, New York Yankees, and Buffalo Bills fan. His pride and joy was spending time with his three daughters, Jordanna (JoJo) Pollock, 10, Grace (Cheeks) Pollock, 7, and Leila (Tiny) Pollock, 3. They enjoyed going to the park, playing ball, and any game in which the girls could beat him. He always told them how much he loved them and how beautiful they were. He looked forward to spending time with his niece, Francesca, and nephew, Alastair. Jason was employed at Royale Printing.
Jason is survived by his daughters, mother, Elaine (Rausch) Pollock, sister, Stephanie Pollock Hansen and her husband Frank, and their children Francesca and Alastair, Uncle Kenny (Jane) Rausch, Aunts Lucille Thiltgen, Darlene Smith, and Mary Ann (Dan) Breitbach,
his Panamanian brother, Ernesto Lo Wong, and his family, Sussana and Kenneth, and many cousins and dear friends. Jason was preceded in death by his father, Jim Pollock on August 27, 2009, grandparents, Elmer and Florence Pollock, and Edward and Alice Rausch, Uncle Raymond Pollock and his wife Louise, and Uncles Oswald Thiltgen, Francis (Sam) Smith, and Tom Smith.
Jason's wishes were to be an organ donor. He gave the gift of life to many. The need for donors is overwhelming. Thank you to the many Doctors and nurses who cared for Jason at the UW and the UW Organ Donation team, especially Rachel Bledsoe who was there for us through this difficult time, and the quick response of the Sun Prairie EMTs.
In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund will be established for Jason’s daughters.
