Jason Milas Ayers: Life of Celebration
Jason Milas Ayers was born to Kenneth (Deceased Apr-2003) and Flozella Ayers on July 2, 1969 in San Jose California.
Jason was the third child and only son to this union. He was welcomed into a loving family by his two sisters, Kenzella LaVerne and Terri Marie. As a young child, Jason accepted Christ and was baptized at Lewis Memorial C.M.E. Church in San Jose, California. Jason was introduced to soccer, baseball, basketball, and track where he excelled as an athlete. Sports of all types became a passion throughout his life. He attended Our Savior Lutheran School (K-8) and Archbishop Mitty High School. While active in sports and student government, he achieved academic honors and athletic awards. Jason earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Economics from the University of California at Davis in June 1989. Jason was inducted into the Pheta Eta Chapter of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity at U.C. Davis. Jason frequently noted his fondest college memories were the strength of the special brotherhood formed with his fraternity brothers.
While in college Jason met and married Christine Best. Shortly thereafter they were blessed with four beautiful children; Walter James, Kayla Nicole, Alyssa Danielle and Charles Austin, who will continue the legacy of his life. Later, he received and accepted the call to share God’s Word. Out of obedience, Jason moved his young family to Dallas Texas and pursued a Master Degree in Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary. While attending seminary school, Jason was diagnosed with renal failure at the age of 26. In spite of his medical challenges requiring dialysis three times a week, his faith and generosity never wavered. He fought his illness daily and would never allow it to hold him down, break his spirit, or harbor ill feelings towards anyone. He faithfully served and generously gave of his talents, time and treasures to his church, community, and friends. Jason and his family relocated to Houston where he accepted the position of Area Director for Young Life Christian Organization in Houston Texas.
In 2008, Jason relocated to Carmel Indiana and united with Bethel A.M.E Church in Noblesville Indiana with Reverend Mallory Tarrance as Pastor.
Jason enjoyed working at True Barbers, his brother in-law James’ business, sharing his knowledge of sports, politics and religion. It was common for Jason to find a unique gift for his family and friends. Jason’s greatest joy was encouraging others to reach their fullest potential. Next to God, he loved his children; Walter, Kayla, Alyssa and Charles. Jason accepted his challenges and submitted himself to God’s will and would often say “I walk humbly in the footsteps of my Heavenly Father.”
Jason’s memories will live on through his children, his mother, sisters Kenzella Reddick (James) and Terri Mays (Lonnie).
