Jason was a big guy with an even bigger personality, known for his gentle spirit, infectious laugh, and smile (he smiled with this eyes) and a heart of compassion. He loved his wife, Tiffany, with all his heart and THEY shared a love that most people only dream of finding. Jason loved the outdoors, hunting and fishing. Being in nature was one of his passions and looked forward to many seasons of bow hunting with his stepson, Navarone. Jason was very artistic and loved to draw and paint and share his paintings with his loved ones.
If Jason could tell you how he would most like his life to be honored, it would be the following: Accept Christ as your Savior and to live for Him. It is the most important decision you will ever make in your life. Forgive those who wrong you and hurt you as God has extended his forgiveness to each of us. Find joy and laugh often. Smile as much as you can and breaking out in song is good, too! Love big. Do not forget to tell people you love them. Jason never let Tiffany go a day without telling her “I love you” numerous times. Love heals. Love restores. Love rescues. Love sustains.
Lastly, Jason’s family asks that you rebuild a relationship or do a random act of kindness for someone in honor of Jason Daniel Haley and his life here on earth.
A visitation in honor of Jason life will be held at the First Assembly of God Church in Kirksville, Missouri Thursday November 12, 2020 from 5:30 to 7:30pm. A short service will follow at 7:30pm with pastor Jeff Arp officiating.
