Dear EBA Members and friends,
Jason Stewart, known by many as JStew, died unexpectedly last weekend. Jason was known in Eastown as the co-owner of ACK located on Wealthy SE at Ethel. Eastown offers its sincere sympathy to Jason’s family and friends.
He will be very missed in Eastown. In the short time ACK was our neighbor Jason contributed a positive, friendly energy to all. Just two weeks ago he accepted our offer to join the EBA Board as another way to show his committment to his community and his business.
Jennifer Asselin of PT 360 was a next door neighbor and offered these comments:
“My first impression of Jason was one of a man who was considerate, caring, intelligent and hard working. That initial impression over time was reaffirmed again and again. Even though he was just as busy as all of us, he would take time to talk with you and listened to you. He cared about those around him and his community. Jason was just one of those dynamic people you meet in life that you want to be friends with, and I will miss him.”
