Jason Daniel Estep

May 25, 1979 — October 16, 2022

Columbus, Ohio

It is with great sadness and broken hearts that we announce the passing of Jason Daniel Estep at the young age of 43. He passed away unexpectedly on October 16, 2022.

Jason was born May 25, 1979 in Columbus, Ohio to Harold Junior and Linda Estep of Grove City, Ohio.

He was preceded in death by his father, Harold Junior Estep, his maternal Grandparents, Sherman and Reba Neal, his paternal Grandparents Virginia and Harold J. Estep, his Uncle Danny Neal, for whom he was named after, and his Aunt Cindy Neal, both of Oklahoma.

He is survived by his mother Linda Estep, his son Daniel Estep and Daniel’s mother Suzanne and daughter Kaylee Ross.

Jason is also survived by his sisters Brandi Estep (Mark), Tiffany Kinney (Brian) and his brother Keith Estep (Iris).

Also surviving are his special Aunts and Uncles, Uncle Bill Neal, Aunt Brenda Bickenheuser, Uncle Jim and Aunt Sherry Estep, Aunt Janet and Uncle Robert Schooley, Aunt Shirley and Uncle Bob, Aunt Norma and Uncle Joe Harbor and Aunt Sue Estep.

Many Nieces and Nephews including Maleah (Caleb), Logan, Makenna, Carson, Clayton, Elliott, Violet, Vincent, Penelope and Ellie (who he always called Peanut).  Also great Nephews, Cooper and Weston.

Special Cousins, Brian Neal, Polly and family, Jeremy, Kristi and family, Jacob and family, Zach and family, Holly and family and Terri, Gary, Jeff, Jon and Kevin and families.

Jason had so many great friends that loved him and they meant everything to him. He loved hanging out with his friends and always felt he could be himself. Helping a friend in need gave him so much satisfaction because his friends were such a special part of his life. Most importantly, they had a strong sense of mutual respect for one another.

Jason loved sports, especially football. He also liked basketball and baseball, but football was his game. He loved watching the Ohio State games with Daniel and his Dad before he passed away. He was so proud of Daniel. They were buddies. He loved spending time with Daniel doing things like taking him to movies or going out to eat.

Jason played GCKA football for several years. He played for GCKA teams, the Browns, the Seahawks and the Panthers travel team. He also played football his freshman year of High School at Grove City. He was such a good player that Head Coach Cross wanted him to play on the Varsity team his sophomore year. He also played basketball and baseball for a couple years for GCKA so his mom and dad spent a lot of time at the ball fields.

Jason was a perfectionist at anything or any job he did. If he did the job, you could be assured it would be done right.

He was a talented artist and a wonderful cook. He had a brilliant imagination when it came to both of those skills. He also taught himself how to play the guitar a little and he had a wonderful voice. He loved many different genres of music just like his Dad had before him.

Jason never gave himself enough credit for how much talent he had in so many areas. Jason loved kids and kids loved him back. He was like a big teddy bear. He loved kids because sometimes he was like a big kid himself. That’s another quality that made him so sweet and funny.

Just like all of us, Jason had his issues but even through his seemingly tough exterior, he had the biggest and softest heart in the world.

He took a lot of pride and pleasure in helping anyone, not only his friends. He was very compassionate and non-judgmental. Those are qualities that are missing from much of our society today.

A book could be written about the way Jason blessed the lives of so many people during his all too short lifetime but the best way to describe Jason is to simply say…”To know Jason…was to love Jason.”
