The basic details:
Last seen 6/13/01 on foot in the area of 48th & Bedford, Omaha, NE. He goes by the name Jason or J.J. He is 6′ 1″ & 165 lbs. He was wearing a blue Cubs hat & a white Cubs or Sammy Sosa t-shirt, black pants & black dress shoes. If you have any information, please call the Omaha Crimestoppers at 402-444-STOP or 402-444-5657. Case# 85214-T
On June 13, 2001, Jason was called in to work early. His car was in the shop all week, so he had no way to get to work in the morning. He told the manager that he would walk, but they called him back & made arrangements to meet at Benson High School, 8 blocks away from our home. Jason has a difficult time giving directions, & meeting at his former high school probably seemed logical to him. He showered & dressed, & was last seen by his little brother, Michael, bringing in the trash cans, as the trash pickup had taken place that morning. The neighbor also saw Jason taking the cans into the garage.
Jason was wearing black dress shoes & black dress pants & carrying his red work t-shirt. He wore a white Chicago Cubs or Sammy Sosa t-shirt, & a blue Chicago Cubs baseball hat. This occurred at approximately 10:45 am. Within 30-45 minutes, the employer called our home to see if Jason was there, as he did not show up at the high school.
No one has seen or heard from Jason since then. He has not touched his bank account, used his cell phone, picked up his checks from work, or inquired about or attempted to pick up his car from the body shop. He also was to have started a new job the following week, & he did not call or show up for the new job, which he was excited about. We estimate, based on the amount of his last check, & the deposit he made, that he didn’t have more than $60 with him, if even that.
Jason is a very shy individual & typically did not pursue social activities. For the most part, he was either at work or home. He did not appear to be interested in alcohol or drugs. He has a close relationship with his family, & it is hard to believe that he would purposely stay away without even contacting us, although we realize that this is not outside of the realm of possibilities. As we don’t have any clues, anything is possible. We HOPE that it is just a case of Jason just wanting to get away from life’s pressures for awhile as the alternative to that scenario is unbearable to think about. It just seems odd that if he had run away, that at the very least, he would have taken his checkbook or picked up his checks from work.
As we have no leads, we are trying to reach every citizen because someone has to have seen him. We love our son and just want him back home with us.
