ELLAVILLE, GA-- Jason H. Hill, 39, of Jacksonville, Florida joined his loved ones in heaven on Thursday, January 11, 2018. Services will be held 2:00 PM Monday, January 15, 2018 at Oglethorpe Baptist Church in Oglethorpe, GA. with burial in the Ellaville Cemetery. Rev. Richard Taylor , Rev. Mark Poole and Dave Frederick will officiate.
Jason was born June 1, 1978, the first of three children from Bruce Hill and Kay Dillard. Jason enjoyed spending his days with his brother, Jarrod Hill, on their boat fishing for Red’s, Trout, and Flounder. Although he lived in Florida, Jason always rooted for the Georgia Bulldogs. His true passion was music; Jason and Jarrod spent many years as DJ’s for events through their company, Groovin’ Records. While he may not have DJ’d in a few years, he could always be found at local concerts enjoying the music that he loved.
Family was a huge part of Jason’s life; he spoke weekly with his sister, Janna Hill, his mother, Kay Mooney, and his father, Bruce Hill. Jason and his brother, Jarrod Hill, lived together in Jacksonville, Florida, and also worked together at G2 ID Source. They were the best of friends.
Jason had an eye for art. This was evident at his job where he was in charge of the art department. He spent his days taking an idea from a customer and bringing it to life. Whether it was a banner, wall graphic, vehicle wrap, bottle label, or any of the other medians he worked with, Jason put his heart and soul into everything he did. He will be greatly missed by his work family.
Jason touched the lives of so many people, from family, co-workers, and friends at his local spot, Green Room Brewing at JAX Beach. The life that he touched the most is that of his girlfriend Leena Van. Since Leena came into Jason’s life those around him noticed a change in him instantly; his heart was full of love for her. Never has there been a love as strong as the love that Jason shared with Leena. Together was their favorite place to be.
Jason is survived by his father, Bruce Hill, his mother, Kay Mooney, his brother, Jarrod Hill, his sister, Janna Hill, his step father, Neil Mooney, his step mother, Clare Hill, step brothers Anthony Mooney, Brian Mooney, Scott Stokes, and Leon Stokes and his longtime friend, his cat, Boogie.
Palllbearers will be Adam Dillard, Leon Stokes, Scott Stokes, Bart Miller, Ryan Miller, Marshall Hill, Kevin Hill, and Jay Robbins.
