    Jason is the younger of two children born to Natalie Way and only child of Andrew Cunningham. Jason was born in July and his mother in Nov. His dad named him using the first letter of each
    month connecting the two; completing the maternal bond. Jason was a family man who loved the Lord. His favorite scripture was Luke 18:27. Not only was Jason a great son, he was an awesome uncle, brother, cousin, nephew and grandson. Jason loved and adored his niece and nephews; serving as a surrogate father to Alannah, Julian and Bryce. He wanted nothing but the best for them, and every day went out of his way to make sure that their actions would position them for greatness.
    Jason was an avid basketball and football player. He played for Caesar Rodney Senior High School and represented the school proudly from middle school to graduation. He was able to serve as one of the team captains in his senior year and received accolades from his coaches and the community.
    Jason played in the Blue/Gold Game, which highlights the finest senior athletes in the State of Delaware for both sports. Upon request of his football coach, Jason also played Lacrosse in his senior year. Jason was recruited and played football and later basketball at Wesley College. He received an NCAA championship ring for football. His dream was to complete his degree and become a sports agent. Jason played recreational football and basketball for church sponsored teams, in the community,and recently played in a basketball game representing the staff of Delaware Department of Corrections.
    In his spare time, Jason took pleasure in collecting coins, fishing, playing spades, tinkering with the computer, cooking and watching sports and the History Channel. Most of all, Jason enjoyed spending time with his best friends, Brandon B., Reggie M., Brandon C., Ray W., David C., and Jeremy M. No day would be complete without his joking with his sister, Kim and cousin Fred.
    Jason enjoyed doing daily crossword puzzles and watching Jeopardy with his Pop Pop. He volunteered for various community organizations beginning at age 10. Jason adopted a spirit of community and support for all mankind no matter their walk in life.
    Two days before his passing, Jason sat with his mother to discuss his starting a foundation for youth. Jason’s strength and spirit will live on for generations to come. Jason was loved by everyone who had the opportunity to meet him and he loved everyone unconditionally.
