Jason's life was cut short when he was killed in a motorcycle accident on April 26th, 2008. He was 42 years old. Anyone that knew Jason, loved him. If he was in a room, you knew he was there, even if you didn't see him. Jason was my brother, my mentor and most of all, my friend. I looked up to him and I miss him terribly.
Jason's mother, Donna Robbins, lives in Falconer and his father, Roy Robbins lives in Jamestown. Jason had two siblings Dennis Robbins and Lori Stansbury. Jason's wife and three boys (Julie, Craig, Chad and Michael) live in Newton, NJ.
