Jason Schippers - Passes away on Oct 31

Postby Baitbuckets » Tue Nov 02, 2010 9:57 am

Ralph Schipper's son Jason passed away on Sunday, he was 29.
He helped us out a lot for the DSM club while Publicity Director.. he was the one who created the commercial for us right before the 2005 NT and he serviced on the DSM Club BOD and of course helped with Worlds.

Jason was a very fun loving guy. He was always very friendly and would attend many tournaments with his Dad back in the 6 to 10 years ago. He was a very creative person who will be missed.

Please below for some additional information and some pictures of Jason.

Please pray for Jason's family during this very difficult time.

oh my, how terrible. My heart goes out to Ralph & family. I didn't know Jason, but know Ralph pretty well through multiple business angles, and disc golf. Rest In peace, Jason.

My heart goes out as well to Ralph and Marla and the Schippers family and to all Jason's friends. Jason was a wonderful guy to serve and volunteer with on the DSM Club Board and for tournaments (including Worlds) and disc golf charity events. He had a thoughtful, can do attitude and always a smile on his face.

Jason's PDGA number was 18956.

What a loss... but his memories live on..
