Jason Crawford Obituary

Jason A Crawford, age 50, of Charlotte, NC passed away unexpectedly on January 13th 2024. He was born on June 24th 1973 at Tripler Army Medical Center located on base in Honolulu Hawaii.

    Jason was a graduate of North Lenoir High School in LaGrange, NC. He lived off of Hwy 11 near Grifton, NC at the family home. After HS Jason attended the first BLET Training class at LCC and graduated. He wanted a career in law enforcement but went to work for Maury Correctional for some years before moving to Charlotte and changing his career path, by going to beauty school and graduating Valedictorian of his class. Never one to be too complacent Jason was always ready for a new challenge, once again Jason changed careers as his life changed directions when he became his own boss by Owning and Operating Heavenbound Transportation.  Jason ran this business for several years before deciding that not only did he want to run the transportation company he wanted to drive the big trucks himself.  He went back to school yet again, and to no one’s surprise, got his CDL and began his final career as an OTR truck driver, which he did for several years up till his passing.

    He loved to travel anywhere, but especially the views across our great country. Jason always had a joke, an infectious smile & a boisterous laugh he inherited from our grandfather. He was friendly, and personable and had a kind spirit and heart.  He will be so greatly missed. We love you J.

    He is survived by his boyfriend Paco currently living in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, His boxer “Ebony” of the home who was his ride or die companion over the road and he shared with friends. Also living is his identical twin Aaron (Dr. David Miller) Crawford, Aunt Wendy (William) Comerford, Uncle Eric (Amy) Dubert. Cousins Sarah (Ryan)Berger, son Griffin, and Brett (Audra) Comerford, son Noah Voss. Cousin Brandy Tate (Bob) and niece Victoria. There are too many people to mention, and he would want us to remind each other that FAMILY doesn’t always mean blood. That by connection, friendship, companionship, respect, and love for one another, we are all part of the same extended family.

     Jason was predeceased by his mother Marcia (Dubert) Crawford who passed away in 2021. His father the year before. Also deceased Is Uncle Mark Dubert in 2012 & brother Thomas R. Crawford in 2001. Also departed are his beloved grandparents Earl (Hoop de doo) and Phyllis Dubert. Also departed were loved and known as Dr. John Capps of Gastonia, Ms. Dorothy (Dot) and last but least a couple of Boxer fur babies named Ginger & Penny.
