Jason was born to John R. and Connie L. Verbeck on October 25, 1971, in the Omak, WA, hospital. He went home to the Lord on March 20, 2019, at Harborview Hospital in Seattle, WA. He was part of a family that included two younger sisters: S. Janine and Julia A. Verbeck. His extended family included lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins.
He was baptized in the family pond as a teenager. He served as basketball manager in high school, graduating in 1990. After graduating, he worked in the family orchard for eight years. Then, he served in the Brethren Volunteer Service. He received his training in Florida, and served at the Tree of Life Foundation, located in Wichita, KS, for two years. When he returned to Washington, he worked at Garden Terrace Apartments, in Wenatchee, WA, as both a resident liaison and tech support. As resident liaison, his duties were light maintenance and assisting residents with their needs. And as tech support, he helped the tenants with electronic problems. He liked to hike and was a fan of the Seahawks and Star Wars.
On June 27, 2015, he married Dolly Hartman at the family home, in Tonasket, WA. They resided at Garden Terrace Apartments in Wenatchee.
Jason was an old soul and had a very compassionate heart. He would lend a listening ear to those in the building that had problems. He enjoyed hiking in the Pasayten Wilderness.
He is survived by his parents, John and Connie Verbeck; his two sisters: S. Janine and Julia Verbeck; and lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his wife; and both sets of grandparents.
