Born July 11th, 1971, in Oromocto, New Brunswick passed away June 25th, 2021.
Jason was a kind and caring man who loved his family dearly, including his wife Carmen and his son Colton. He had a small circle of very good friends who he loved very much, including a very special bond with his lifelong best friend Troy. Together they made many memories which Jason treasured so much. He loved snowmobiling, ATV runs, canoe trips, fishing, and camping. More recently with his son, they developed a great love of boating & bass fishing. Jason made the very most out of every day and cherished every moment with his family and friends, especially through his battle with cancer.
Jason was a co-owner of Scott’s Nursery. After attending Nova Scotia Agricultural College, he worked with his family to form a well-known greenhouse and garden center operation. Jason joined three generations of his Scott family in making the business a success and not without trials and setbacks. The stress he was under as a planner, grower, and operator of a greenhouse operation in New Brunswick was seen only by close friends and family, but it was rewarding to him as he loved being a grower. People he worked with respected his love for plants and his kind way of directing people. His plant knowledge, his ability to grow the excellent quality plants with so many questions and decisions on his mind made it a challenging life. He wanted to learn the latest technology to move the business forward. His goal was to make a good life for his family and to be become the best greenhouse grower in Canada. With the wide variety of quality plant material Scott’s Nursery offered, in our eyes he accomplished what he set out to do and to us he was just that, "The Best".
Jason worked hard and played hard. He enjoyed time at the camp with his parents (Jeanette and George). Colton and Carmen spent some great times together with him camping and fishing. Just last summer they had a bear by the tent, that ate all their groceries for the weekend. Afterward Jason found a T-Shirt that said, "What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger - except for bears, bears will kill you". Jason loved to laugh with his friends and family, he loved campfires, guitar sing-alongs, he loved life, good friends, staff, and family.
His wife Carmen would tell you Jason was the most amazing person she ever met, caring, loving, and devoted to his family. His son Colton would tell you he was the best father anyone could ask for; they were very close, and they loved being outdoors together. Jason taught him so many life skills, he knows he was loved and that he was his dad’s whole world. His sister Jenny was his business partner and best friend at times, looked after him as a little brother and always went to him for advice even if they disagreed on things sometimes, but was always in Jason’s corner in good times and bad. His mother Jeanette says he could solve anything, fix anything, was a great cook and in the last year he became very creative and did some amazing paintings and carvings. His father George would tell you he was a great fisherman who loved the outdoors, they spent many hours together hunting and fishing and they both loved nature very much. His parents would both tell you he was an "Amazing Son", and he was always there for them.
His family and friends are heartbroken with his passing. His list of things he planned to do and accomplish were always on his mind to the very end. "The best greenhouse grower" had made friends with so many people in the industry and community he will not be forgotten.
The family would like to thank his many doctors, the DECH oncology department, DECH nurses and staff. The family would like to thank family and friends for their support through Jason’s illness. There will be no visitation or service.
