Jasons Story By C. Cox
by Connie Cox
My son Jason Ashby Cox was killed on April 6, 2011. He had gotten home from work around 3:15pm, and drove his dad around looking for a new truck for his dad. They were home by 5:10pm and Jason got his Suz Jxr out to ride with his buddies (8 of them). He never came back home.
He was in the back of the group. A car pulled out in front of Jason after letting 5 of the bikers pass him. Jasons two friends were just behind him so when Jasons bike hit the car, it pushed the car and bike in the ditch, which allowed the two bikers behind Jason to ride thru without any contact, which actually saved their lives. A blessing from GOD! Jason died on impact.
Jason was my oldest of 3 boys. He was 23 at the time of the accident. His birthday was Aug. 26. We had a candle lite remembrance in honor of his special day and had 125 friends and family show up. It truly was amazing with all the support we had and still do.
Jason left behind his brothers Brandon 21 and Nathan 19. Its so hard to see them struggle with such a deep wound as grief. I see it in their eyes and all I can do for them is pray, which I do everyday.
As Jason's mom I struggle everyday. There are days I struggle so bad I ask myself, "what's the point of getting out of bed?" This has been the worst death I have ever gone thru, I have lost both parents to cancer and just 6 weeks before Jason's accident we buried my husbands mother. My mother passed away Aug. 5, 2009. So its been rough and I pray someday I will be able to find the "new normal" or the purpose of all the sadness in our lives.
Thank-you for allowing me to share with you my son, JASON A. COX.
