Jason Scott Honsowetz, born May 31, 1966, passed away unexpectedly at home on Jan. 26, 2013, at the age of 46.
Scott was a lover of deep thought, big words, all kinds of music, and had a great sense of humor.
He was born in Bremerton, where he lived his life, graduating from Bremerton High in 1985 and Olympic College in 2010. His early years of employment were spent as an Iron Worker. He loved being a part of the making of huge buildings; of being high in the air, looking out over the world.
A tragic accident in 2004 severely injured his feet, but not his love of life or his sense of humor. He then became a Chemical Dependency Professional, volunteered at and then was employed by the county at Kitsap Recovery Center. He found great joy in helping people re-find direction in their lives.
Scott loved living in the Pacific Northwest and being in the Olympic Mountains with all of God's creation.
Scott is survived by his wife, Paris Honsowetz (Bremerton); children Jessica and Samantha Honsowetz (Spokane), Amanda (James) Hornby (Spokane) and Caleb Karl (Aberdeen), his mother, Judy Honsowetz (Ron) Mastick (Grapeview), brothers and their families, Ged (Shannon & Ryland) Honsowetz (Tahuya) and Mike (Debbie, Taylor & Nathan) Honsowetz (IN); grandmother Harriette Honsowetz (Moses Lake), niece Aislinn (Patrick) Miner (CA); aunts, uncles, cousins, and many, many friends. He was preceded in death by his father, Ged William Honsowetz in 1989.
A celebration of Scott's life will be held on Sat. Feb. 9, 11 a.m., at North Mason United Methodist Church in Belfair (25140 SR 3) with a pot luck reception following. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to Kitsap Recovery Center Alumni program or to the family home.
