  15. Jason was always inspiring and a bridge between all types of people and worlds. He made my world much more full during our friendship in ways that last to this day. Much love to all his friends and family.

  16. I got to know Jason through my brother James, and he was like a second brother to me for several years. I have so many wonderful memories that I'll cherish. My condolences to Alice, his family, and all those who knew and loved him.

  21. Rest in peace Jason. Many happy memories of you playing for Wednesday 13. Such fun and laughter and remembered by many. My thoughts go out to your family

  22. I am so sorry to Alice, Mr. & Mrs. Heveran and Family.
    I met Jason 12 – 15 years ago. He was a fan and then I was a fan of his.
    He always had charm and was always kind and sweet. He was a gentleman.
    It's been too long since we've talked and too long since I've seen him. I never got to meet his beautiful Alice. I was fortunate enough to spend a great evening with him when he came to Hollywood to perform. My signature was tattooed on his wrist! It was so great when he'd pop up at a convention.
    He was a great performer. He was good to his fans. I will never drive by the Rainbow room and Sunset Blvd. and not think of him. When I got the text that he was gone, I immediately phoned him…I didn't believe it. I didn't think it was a lie, I just couldn't believe it.

    I am so sorry he is gone.

    God bless you all, God bless Jason.

    All my love,

    Beverly Randolph

  23. Jason's music got me through my 20s and 30s, both good and bad times, and it is truly a loss. My heart goes out to all of you and i wish you the best moving forward and remembering him.

  24. I first met Jason in 1995. He was still a kid & used to roadie for my band. Eventually he & I became good friends. We had so many good times together. Our sense of humor was quite similar & we’d get together & relay dialog from our favorite TV show: The Simpsons. We were like two kids in the back of a class room, joking & laughing until it got us in trouble. I took him on his first band tour. I introduced him to his favorite band The Misfits. Eventually he ended up playing guitar for me in both my bands SpySociety99 & Empire Hideous. Jason would come to me for advice when he was a young 20 year old & I’d try to give him the best advice I could to steer him in the right direction. We hand many fun times together. Eventually we sort of went our own ways in life but would occasionally communicate with each other. However, looking back I now realize it wasn’t nearly enough & I resent not having connected with him as much as we should have. When I was contacted by our mutual friend who told me of Jason’s untimely passing I was positively mortified & stricken with a deep sense of sadness, as if I had lost a brother. I knew he was so happy with his beautiful wife Alice & where his life had lead him, so getting the bad news made it even more difficult for me to accept. I wish things weren’t the way they are & he was still with us so we could have a conversation the way we used to.
    Jason, I’m going to miss you very, very much. I’m sorry we didn’t stay in touch the way we did when you were a younger man. But life has a funny way of doing just that all too often. Perhaps you & I will meet again one day, somewhere, somehow, but wherever you are right now, i hope it’s a better place. You made a lot of people very sad for leaving them…us. Life can be incredibly cruel at times. Nevertheless I miss you already my dear friend & you’ll always be a fond memory in my thoughts. Rest in peace my Jason. I love & miss you brother!
    -Myke Hideous

  25. I first discovered Jason’s band Mister Monster when I was 15 years old, in 2005, I fell in love with their music and Jason’s unique voice and they quickly became my top favorite band, I learned every lyric to every song and even named my now 6 year old daughter after their song “Teenaged Dreams”. I had the pleasure of meeting Jason in 2008(?) when he was touring with Wednesday 13, it was in Scottsdale, Arizona at a venue formerly called Chasers, he was out back having a cigg so me and my friend asked if we could join him, I smoked a cigg just to meet him and I hated cigarettes lol he was so nice and even let us take a picture with him, I’ll always cherish that memory and the fact that I had the opportunity to be graced with his presence, he had a huge positive impact on my life and I’ll always be thankful for that, rest easy Jason, all your fans love you and we will miss you dearly
    Skeleton Crew Forever

    Love and condolences,

  26. Rest in peace, Jason. Thanks for the memories and music you gave to so many people. All the best to your family and friends.

  27. I’m very sorry for the loss to the Heveran family, Jason was a one of a kind guy. His music touched many lives across the globe and a large majority of those people got to say this to him in person on his many tours due to the lifestyle his talents afforded him. I first met him in 2007 in the UK and he was nothing but a cool and down to earth guy. The last time I saw him was in 2013 in NJ and they were only passing words, but I will remember Jason forever.

    “Never say goodbye
    Only say goodnight
    Dream up of our world
    Rest in bed so tight
    Sleep with angels”

  28. Dear Mary and Family

    My sincere and heartfelt condolences on the loss of Jason. May your cherished memories bring you some comfort and peace during this difficult time. May he rest peacefully.

  29. Hearing of your loss Jason is devastating and yet I haven't seen you in so many years. We were friends in middle school and though I probably never told you but you were a truly best friend to me at the time. You accompanied me to one of my very first concerts of course and I knew you didnt want to go but you did because you were my friend and just one of the sweetest guys out there. I wish I could of hung out with you again since we went different ways. I'm so sorry and my heart goes out to your wife Alice, your mom, and your family. You have left us the sweetest memories Jason.

  30. I first met Jason in July 2000. I drove up to North Jersey with a friend to see a few bands we liked. Mister Monster also played that night. I was drawn to Jason from the moment I first saw him. After the show, he noticed the Cryptkeeper Five sticker on my car and we started talking. We became friends, and I started going to see him play all the time. I was always there, video camera in hand. I would drive an hour every week just to hang out with him at Connections, even though I wasn’t old enough to drink yet. I met so many amazing, wonderful people because of Jason. He helped me when I was learning how to play the bass, and I will always remember sitting in his basement playing “Don’t Cry.” When he moved to California, I took my first plane ride just to go visit him and continued to do so every year he was away. I will never forget the late night phone calls talking about our lives, creating music videos together, and watching him pour his heart out through his music. A few years ago, we fell apart and I will always regret that. I never stopped thinking about him and I never will. He helped shape who I am today, and he will always be a part of me. I am grateful for every moment we shared. My heart breaks for his loving mother and sister and his beautiful wife. He was a truly special person and made so many people smile, including me.

  31. Mary –

    My heart breaks for you. No mother should ever have to bury her son! You and Lisa AND Dave are in my prayers.

    Much love,
    Diane Engstrum Irwin (and Donna Engstrum Jayme, too!)

  32. Dear Mary,
    We are so sorry to hear about the passing of Jason. We are thinking about you and your family and sending our love. We hope that through family, friends and faith you have the support and love to get through this difficult time. Please know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

  33. In the late 90s/the year 2000, I found Mister Monster music online. Napster. Remember that?

    I was attending Centenary College in Hackettstown, NJ and had an overnight show on their FM station 91.9 WNTI.

    I pretty much played Mister Monster on every show. I had Jason and Joe up in person to do in studio interviews (which featured cameo phone calls from Myke Hideous and the Mr Stoops guys) and had them both do several phone interviews over the years.

    Jason was nice enough to give me his phone number, he gave me MM records before they were out and we ended up just talking or going to the diner.

    I've seen him and those guys play countless times at Connections and even drove down to North Carolina and Alabama to see them, too.

    A lot of people here are saying they lost contact with Jason and wish they'd seen him more. That goes for me, too. We didn't speak much after he went to California. I wish I called him more and saw him more.

    I'm sorry.
    I miss him.


  34. Dear Mary and family,
    My sincerest condolences on the loss of Jason. He was one of the most gifted and talented musicians I have ever had the honor of sharing a stage with. He always was able to make me laugh and he was someone who I was able to bond with immediately.
    When my first daughter was born, Jason was the first one to call me personally and congratulate me…I will never forget that.
    I will always consider Jason a friend, a bandmate, and one of the kindest, friendliest souls I've ever met.

    He will be missed terribly.

  35. My heartfelt condolence to the Family. I am so sorry for your loss. There are few experiences more difficult than losing a loved one in death. As you cherish the many memories of your dear loved one, Jason, please reflect on the time when sickness, death and mourning will be no more. (Revelations 21:3,4) This is what our loving God Jehovah has promised and Jesus guaranteed the hope of seeing our loved ones again by means of the earthly resurrection. (John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 26:19, Psalms 37:10,11) May God’s word bring you comfort during this difficult time and in the days ahead as we await the fulfillment of His promises.

  36. My deepest condolences for his family and friends. I met Jason in the early 2000’s when he was living in L.A. We worked at Tower Records together in Glendale and shared many good moments. He was very loved and such a wonderful guy. I will always remember him and miss him dearly. With much love Heveran from Soto.

  37. My sincerest condolences to his family and friends. I am so sorry to hear of his passing, heartbreaking. He was so talented. I will always remember his big heart and warm smile. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. R.I.P my old friend

  38. "My condolences to the family and friends of Jason.
    Jason's music is very special to me.
    I'm a big fan from Brazil.
    Please accept my heartfelt sympathy; I believe Jason is with God in a better place now."
