He graduated from Lubbock High School in 1999, thereafter enlisting and serving in the United States Army. Jason enjoyed his career as a salesman where his charismatic personality led him to a career as a licensed insurance agent. Jason was a Catholic and member of Saint Theresa's Catholic Church. Jason was also jokingly known as a member of the "BAR" association because he loved having a good time with friends and family. He was known for his BBQ and smoking skills. Jason thrived in cooking amazing food for tailgating and family functions, especially when it came to the Texas Tech Red Raiders; he was a Red Raider "FAN"atic! Jason also was an avid Dallas Cowboys and Texas Ranger fan. He loved country music, outdoor concerts, and yes, Jason was the first one in line for Karaoke. He loved traveling and spending time with family. He was known as the life of the party, the jokester, and was one of a kind.
Jason was a loving father, amazing brother, and an exceptional devoted son. He is preceded in death by his father Eddie Torrez.
