Jason Alexander Shirley was pronounced dead at 6:45 p.m. when emergency medical providers arrived on scene.

I have seen it 100 times on television but could have never imagined it would become knocking on my door… He was a friend to many and a very likable person. Our hearts will have a forever void nothing can fill.”
