Jason Edwards


October 29, 2015 - 12:00 AM

Jason Neil Edwards, 37, passed away Saturday, Oct. 24, 2015, at Neosho Memorial Regional Medical Center in Chanute. Jason was born on Sept. 6, 1978, in Stillwater, Okla., the son of Rolland Edwards Sr. and Sharon (Henderson) Edwards.
Jason married Alison Lester and later divorced. They had one daughter together, Addison Lester-Edwards.
Jason worked for Yeoman Trucking in Cherry-ville as a truck driver; however, his real passion was being outside at his grill. He attended high school in Humboldt and completed the trucking program at Fort Scott Community College. Jason loved to BBQ and enjoyed spending time with his neighbors. If his garage door was open, his neighbors were always welcome to stop by and visit, and usually Jason would be outside to greet them. He was always watching out for his neighbors. Jason attended Tae Kwon Do classes and was a member of the Sons of American Legion. He was good with his hands — a real jack of all trades, whether it was woodworking, crafting, or just fixing things around the house.
Jason was preceded in death by his father, Rolland, his grandparents, Chester and Margie Henderson, and his uncle, Neil Henderson.
He is survived by his mother Sharon (Henderson) Edwards; fiancée Regina Dunn; daughter Addison Lester-Edwards, Humboldt; brother Jeff Edwards, Chanute; nephew Aaron Gambill, Chanute; two aunts and several cousins.
A graveside service will be at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Memorial Park Cemetery in Chanute. Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday at Countryside Funeral Home, Johnson Chapel. Interment will be at Memorial Park Cemetery in Chanute.
The family requests memorials to Castaways animal shelter or to help with funeral expenses. Memorials may be left with or mailed to the funeral home at 101 N. Highland, Chanute, KS 66720.
