    I am deeply saddened by this very unfortunate tragedy of a life taken too soon. Jason and I spent a lot of time together in the 11th and 12th grade. We car pooled to school at Willoughby Tech Center and practiced survival skills in the forest and on the beaches along Lake Erie. Jason always had a smile on his face and was full of energy. He was always up for an adventure and had the friendliest personality. I am glad I have those memories to hold in my heart. My deepest condolences go out to the Link family and his young son.

  4. Met Jason when he was 11. To me he was just Jack’s little brother who became Jack’s artist brother then Jack’s not so little Viking brother. He looked at the world through a different eye and walked his own path. He saw the world differently than I ever will. RIP

    JJ was an inspiration. His creativity and free thinking spread to everyone he met. He lit up the room when he entered. It was an honor and a pleasure to have known him, even for a short time. He will be missed.
