Jason was preceded in death by his father Wendell Gilbertson and grandparents; Ernest and Lenora Sjuggerud and Adolph and Marie Gilbertson; aunts and uncles Gordon and Charlotte Becker, Ken Thompson, LaVerne Sjuggerud, and Jackie McCurdy.

A celebration of life will be held at 12 noon on Saturday, March 14, at Holmen Lutheran Church, 228 Morris Street, Holmen, WI with a visitation starting at 9 am until the time of the service and a time of fellowship will follow the service.  A private family burial will be held at a later date.

    My most sincere condolences. Jason was a gentle, kind and caring man, especially so to my daughter Taylor. As our neighbor, he was generous in sharing his signature wild rice and mushroom soup. His thoughtful nature will be missed. Rest in peace.
