- Jason Patrick Gorman
Jason Patrick Gorman died tragically and needlessly on May 26, 2019. Known as Jay by the people who loved him, he suffered most of his adult life from drug addiction.
Jason was born in Chicago, Ill., on March 28, 1977. At an early age, he moved to Quincy, Mass., where he and his identical twin brother, Jimmy, were raised by their grandmother, whom Jay adored. After high school, they moved to Vermont in search of a better life. One of Jay's best accomplishments was the birth of his daughter, Alexandrea, in 2009.
In the following years, Jay tried endlessly to conquer his demons and not have his life defined by drug abuse. Along with Jay's love for the outdoors, music and his beloved Roobear, his silent struggle always took a back seat to helping anyone and everyone who was struggling. A true bright light who could have honestly changed the world, Jason leaves behind his daughter, Alexandrea Gorman; brother, James Gorman; and grandmother Irma Rodriguez.
A memorial service will be held at the Daybreak Community Church, 67 Creek Farm Plaza, Suite 2, Colchester, Vt., on June 9, 2019, at 3 p.m.
