Jason Borage, who was known to many in Middle Georgia as DJ Jason Hawk on Q106.3, passed away at his Macon residence Saturday, May 13, 2017. He was 35. A Celebration of Life will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, May 19 at Mulberry Street United Methodist Church in Macon with the Rev. Jimmy Towson officiating.

Jason was born Aug. 25, 1981, in Lubbock, Texas, to Clarence and Stephanie Borage. His family later moved to Colorado, where he spent much of his young life, went to college and began a career in radio. Jason moved to Macon in 2006, ultimately landing a job with iHeartMedia, where he worked the last decade of his life.

Jason hosted trivia nights at restaurants across Macon, meeting his future wife, Jennifer, at El Azteca trivia the year he moved here. He DJ'ed weddings and hosted a pregame radio show for Mercer University football for several years while also helping out in the press box.

Jason loved football, whether it was college, pro or fantasy, and his favorite team was Texas Tech. He was a fan of all genres of music, amassing a collection of more than 5,000 CDs. He enjoyed playing poker and teaching others how to play as well. Games were always free. He wanted friendship, not money. Jason never met a stranger.

Above all, Jason loved his young daughter, Bethany.

Those left to cherish his memory are his wife, Jennifer Borage; daughter, Bethany Borage; parents, Clarence and Stephanie Borage; sister, Stacey Borage; grandfather, Howard Haan; and numerous other friends, family and strangers who he touched through the radio or maybe even a Facebook post.

The family suggests that those who wish to make donations in Jason's memory do so to the Fibrolamellar Cancer Foundation, 20 Horseneck Lane, 2nd Floor, Greenwich, CT 06830. Donations also may be made online at fibrofoundation.org/donate.

Snow's Memorial Chapel, Cherry Street, has charge of the arrangements.
