On Wednesday, August 16, 2023, Jason William Panaro, amazing husband, father, son and brother, passed away at the age of 41.
Jason leaves a huge hole in the hearts of his family and friends who were always entertained with his hilarious sense of humor and his bigger than life personality. He truly brought life to the party. He meant the world to all that knew him and we will forever cherish the memories he gave us. He would always say “I’m here for a good time, not a long time”.
If there was one thing Jason was, that was determined. No matter what the challenge or request was, he gave his all to ensure he exceeded all expectations, whether for himself or others. There was no line or boundary he was afraid to cross if needed.
He was beloved by everyone who ever met him; a fantastic father, a great husband and a best friend to all walks of life. No matter the circumstance, you’d always leave with a story of something funny or crazy Jason did while you were with him.
Jason loved traveling, making music, and dancing with his kids to his favorite music. He prided himself on his yard and he loved having people tell him how beautiful and green his grass was. He loved wearing thought provoking T-Shirts, taking his spoiled dog Daisy on walks, cooking, and just being around those people he loved and cared for.
He is survived by his wife, Christina, daughters Abagail and Lily, and son Walker, all of whom he loved more than life. He is also survived by his parents, Bill & Kim, his sister Ashley, and many Aunts, Uncles and Cousins.
Jason is now at peace, joining his Nana (June), his friends Zach and Erwin – it is one fun-filled party reunited in heaven.
We will be celebrating Jason’s life on August 24th from 4 – 6 PM at Oakland Memorial Home and from 6 – 8 PM at the Knights of Columbus located at 7 Court House Place, Oakland, NJ 07436 for food and beverages! Please wear bright colors or funny/inappropriate shirts that Jason would love.
