HUNSPERGER – Jason Bernard

December 1, 1978 – November 5, 2010

It is with great sorrow we announce the sudden passing of our beloved son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend, Jason Bernard Hunsperger on Friday, November 5, 2010 at the age of 31 years.

Born and raised in Calgary, Jason arrived kicking and screaming two months early at the whopping weight of 4 lbs 11 1/4 oz. He was an amazing young man with a generous heart, fiery temper and passionate work ethic. Jason was extremely loyal to his family and friends and would do anything for anybody. In his younger years, Jason enjoyed swimming with the U of C swim team and hiding at “Mikey’s” after trying to roast his Mom while she slept. Jason was a roofer by trade but could and would do any job asked of him. His pride of workmanship will always live on with Grandma’s siding and his mom and dad’s roof. Jason loved animals and enjoyed playing the guitar.
“Fly high, soar proudly,
You’ve earned your wings, J.”

Jason is survived by his loving mother Cheryl; stepfather Doug; siblings, Jennifer and Brandon; his special “father” Mike; grandparents, Elaine, Barney & Fran, Wilf & Sharel; aunts Debbie (Wilbur) and Dayle (Brett); uncles Gord and Jeff; and numerous cousins and special companion Christina.

Jason was predeceased by his grandpa “Pops” Westmacott; great grandparents, Nyle and “Owlie” (Nellie) Hunsperger; great aunts Niecey and Beatrice; and great uncle Gary.

Those wishing to pay their respects may do so at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Wednesday, November 10, 2010 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

  1. My very deepest condolences to your family.My thoughts and prayers are with you at this very difficult time. Jason was an amazing person. I remember him when he was in his early teens, and we would all spend time in Radium at the cabin. I brought him 2 packs of cigarettes on one of the trips, just so he wouldnt sneak mine anymore!! When I told him this he smiled from ear to ear!! I remember that smile so well. Cherish your happy memories of Jason. I know you will keep him close to your heart. Love Sheila.

  5. My sincere condolences to Doug and Cheryl and family. My thoughts are with you. Jason came a long way during his short life. His time spent at a retreat was real inspiration for me during my own troubled times. The last time I saw Jason was Christmas ’06 and I was so proud of the peace he had found. Even though I’m not religious, I accepted 5 passages,from the bible,he gave to me, that day. I still have and read those passages from time to time. Thank you Jason for being part of my life. Peace to you, and your family and friends. Love Uncle Donn
