My deepest condolences on Jaysons passing. I first met him through my dad while they worked at the sheriffs office. He will be missed. Hugs and prayers to his family.
Jayson had a smile when you met him, and he kept it there every time you came back together. Encourager, a force of energy, positive, fun loving, thoughtful, caring, and honest. Tricia and Jayson built a Family around Love and Energy, friends, and loved ones. But most of all, God was with Jayson, and Jayson brought Jesus along with him everywhere he went! Our Prayers continue for Tricia, Janson, Branton, and Jaydon!

The Deavers took care of my kiddos when they were littles and I will never forget their kindness and how Jayson would do anything to help out a friend or a neighbor. He had the biggest heart. Prayers for the family to celebrate this great life. Rest in peace old friend and save me a seat up there. You are already greatly missed.
Praying for you all. It is but a thin line between us and those that have crossed over. Jayson is still with you in spirit. Hugs. God will watch over you and your precious family. Both of you were the epitome of good parents and it showed in your kids.
I always enjoyed working with Jayson. Many nights of talking about our families on our trips to Lubbock and back. He is a stand up guy and a great friend.
Prayers for the family. He was a good man and coworker. He will be missed. Rest in peace brother.
I was so sad to hear this . I worked with his Dad and my daughter went to school with Jayson. May the Angels keep you close and give you peace.
Praying for God to wrap his loving arm’s around the family during this difficult time🙏🙏🙏
Sending my heartfelt sympathy to the Deaver family. My God cover you with love and comfort.
I’ve truly been struggling on what to say here. I haven’t seen Jayson in many years but for a brief moment in time he was my best friend. Staying up at his house until 2 am playing cards, instantaneous trips to San Antonio or being caught in a tornado in a sail boat on a lake with Jayson and Tricia so many years ago. Our paths have since diverged in this life my friend but I know I’ll see you again. To Tricia and your family my prayers and thoughts are with you at this time.
Prayers for the family. The pain of losing a child never goes away completely. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart,…”

I have known Jason since Jr high and worked with him at the Sheriff’s Office. He was a man of great honor and integrity. A friend to all who knew him. A gentle giant. My deepest condolences for the family.
