HENDERSON, Jason

August 26, 1971 – Calgary, Alberta
May 13, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Jason Henderson, beloved husband of Karin Henderson (nee Linklater) of Calgary, passed away on Sunday, May 13, 2018 at the age of 46 years.

Jason was born in Calgary and grew up between Saskatchewan and Alberta. He played high school football in Wetaskiwin and went on to play for the University of Calgary Dinos where he studied Education. Soon after university Jason started a career in the oil and gas industry; for the last thirteen years he worked overseas where he was highly respected by colleagues. At anytime, you could just ask and he’d let you know he was a “big deal when it came to drilling holes in the bottom of the ocean.” Jason was a family man and spent all of his time off with his wife and kids at home or at their cabin in Montana. He had a deep love for the Red Sox and was thrilled when they won two World Series Championships in the same years his kids were born. Jason loved turkey hunting, boating, watching sports, spending time with family and air conditioning. He will be remembered for his undying love of his wife Karin, #1 son Karson and #1 daughter Jaydin; he would have moved the Earth for them if he could.

Besides his loving wife Karin, Jason is survived by his beautiful children Karson and Jaydin, who both adored him beyond words; his mother-in-law Sandy Linklater; sisters Angela Henderson (Dale Little) and Trisha Henderson; step-father Glen Henderson; sister-in-law Jodi (Matt) Steele; special aunts, Debbie, Kath and Cathy (Danny); his nieces Sarah and Chloe; and nephew Finlee; along with many other aunts, uncles and cousins throughout Canada and the United States. Jason was predeceased by his grandmother Merle Brown, grandpa Ken Lee, and uncles Dale and Bob Lee.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road S.E., Calgary, AB) on Thursday, May 24, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. Reception to follow at the funeral home. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to a Trust Fund set up for Karson and Jaydin Henderson at any Calgary CIBC Bank.
