  18. My heart goes out to Jason’s family and all who loved and cherished him, learned from him, were inspired by him, rode motorcycles with him, skated with him, were sober with or because of him, etc. This is tragic and the pain is heavy. Still, I think we’re the lucky ones because we got to share our lives with the legendary Jason Coleman!
    Honestly, Jason was one of the raddest! He had more energy and drive than anyone else I’ve ever met. He touched so many lives and accomplished so many things. The positive impact he had on our lives makes it really hard to fathom him not being around, spreading his infectious energy, lifting the spirit of our days with his “no bad days” mantra, and brightening our moods with that ridiculously adorable smile of his.

  19. Love you, homeboy. You help me a lot in early sobriety and help me get out of my shell. Onwards and upwards

  20. I am so grateful to have been your friend. Thank you for helping me get sober and thanks for showing me how fun life can be Sober. Thank you for introducing me to all the Tucson heads . The pools, the laughs, all of it. You were so loved and I’m glad you went out with a bang doing what you loved. Going to miss you J sauce

  21. The celebration of Jason Coleman’s life will be Saturday September 9th at 6pm at Santa Rita Skate Park in Tucson.

  22. I moved out to Tucson for school. I’ve always been a skateboarder but at that time I needed help to help finding people to skate with and pools to skate. Jason saw me at the local skate shop. I was wearing in a WSVT (Washington st. Skatepark, San Diego)shirt and we started talkin I mentioned I liked to skate pools and he took me to my first back yard pool in Tucson right then and there. we skated a lot together after that and I was introduced to a solid group of skaters in Tucson. Thanks for lending a helping hand to a weird kid who just moved to town. Condolences to his friends and family

  23. I met Jason in 2003 when my motor cycle broke down in Colorado Springs. I was just passing through and he helped me figure out what was broke. I didn’t have enough money to fix it so Jason let me stay on his couch, got me a job on the construction crew he was working on until I could buy the part. I ended up living with him for a few months. We hopped fences and skated pools, we stayed up late chasing girls and drinking coffee. After he helped me fix my motorcycle I left Colorado and about 5 years later we somehow reconnected in Tucson. Since then we have spent many hours riding skateboards, going to meetings, traveled together, we worked on each others houses – he on my AC and I helped him weld. We had many late night heart to hearts. Jason was solid dude. He worked hard and played hard. He helped people get sober, he loved his family, and he wasn’t afraid to say what was on his mind! I am going to miss you Jason.

  24. This breaks my heart. Jason was a cool dude. Sending love to his friends & family ❤️

  25. I was introduced to Jason back in 2009 through some mutual friends via skateboarding and sobriety. He showed me so many good parks and pools and meetings and always introduced me to new friends every time I’d pass through Tucson. I’ll never forget the laughs and sessions in Jesse’s backyard with Jason. Truly grateful to have been a part of his life and have him as a part of mine.

  26. I remember meeting Jason when I first got on Starr skateboard shop and knew him through Aaron Suski and Jesse Dent. I looked up to him and all the big dogs and he always inspired me. Going to miss you man you were and still are a power house on and off the board. Love always your friend Daniel Carrillo.

  27. While I never had the privilege of meeting Jason, his friend, who was a complete stranger to me, went above and beyond to show kindness and generosity towards me and my girlfriend the other night.

    He had every right to be annoyed by the situation he was in but chose to display empathy instead. All he wanted in return was for us to remember the name Jason Coleman.

    In honoring Jason’s memory, he demonstrated the kind of person Jason must have been – authentic, caring, and compassionate. Even in his absence, Jason’s legacy lives on through the thoughtful actions of those who knew him. Rest in peace, Jason.

    And to the dude I met, I don’t know if you’ll see this but what you did is something I won’t ever forget and thanks again. This was at the 7 eleven

  28. Thank you all for your kind words
