Bloomington — Jason Jewell, 60, Bloomington, passed away Sunday, April 8, 2012, after a brief, but brave battle with cancer. Born Sept. 15, 1951, in Kokomo, he was the son of Dr. George and Katheryn (Knepper) Jewell.
He served in the U.S. Army as a member of the Military Police. He was the owner of Jason Jewell Insurance and Realty, and devoted over 25 years to his passion for baseball through Bloomington Junior League Baseball Association. In 2007, he was inducted into the Southern Indiana Baseball Hall of Fame. Most of all, he enjoyed bringing humor to any situation with a quick wit and a ready joke. He was a devoted father and grandfather who truly loved his family.
He is survived by his son, George “Jay” (Kim Smith) Jewell; his daughter, Deborah Jewell; his sister, Jane (Peter Heck) Jewell; brother, John (Peggy) Jewell; nephews and niece, Jacob Jewell, Lucas Jewell, Jerry Davis, Gregory Davis, and Kathryn Ade; and the sunshine of his last seven months, his grandson, Aiden Jewell.
He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Sue Davis Ade.
A memorial service will be at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Allen Funeral Home, 4155 S. Old State Road 37, Bloomington, with visitation from 4 to 7 p.m. prior to services on Thursday.
