Jason Stewart was adventurous, caring, loving and soft hearted. He was quiet and very trusting of others. Jason loved spending time with his friends, family and having get togethers with them all. Born at Lutheran Hospital on September 2, 1976 in Fort Wayne, he was one of the twin sons of Cheyenne Stewart and Janice (McCool) Osborn.
Jason would grow up living in South Whitley. As a boy, he loved being outdoors, playing in the woods and doing anything that involved going fast like 4-wheeling and go-karts. He enjoyed all sports and played basketball while attending Whitko High School and even held a 3-point record for the school for many years.
After graduating from Whitko High School with the Class of 1995, he and his twin brother Jeremiah decided to explore the Untied States and began traveling and working at various places across the country, including working construction after Hurricane Katrina wreaked havoc upon New Orleans. After moving to Florida he worked at various bars and he fell in love with the ocean. He loved being on the beach, going out on the boats and fishing. Jason did find relaxation by watching sports with family and friends and was an IU fan.

Stewart, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, passed away unexpectedly Monday, May 18, 2020 at Parkview Regional Medical Center at the age of 43.
