Jason Currie ’96
Jason Saunders Currie, a loving father, son, brother, uncle, loyal friend, and life warrior, passed away unexpectedly on Sept. 2, 2020.
To those who knew him, Jason was strong, funny, enthusiastic, compassionate and extremely kindhearted. He made an impact on every person he met and will be greatly missed. Jason’s heart was immense, and his generosity knew no bounds. He loved life and his family and was proud of being a Currie. Jason was a great athlete, starring in soccer at Hope College. Most of his business career was spent at Grand Northern, the business he built with his brother, Mike. He loved the outdoors: farming, fishing, hunting, watersports – whatever it was, Jason was all in. His love of hunting translated into a passion for Hunt with Heart, a nonprofit that gives terminally ill children a chance to experience a hunt. But his greatest love and accomplishment were his children, Tucker and Charlie. Jason left this world too early, but his family is comforted knowing that he is reunited with his mom, Janice, and sister-in-law, Megan.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Janice; sister-in-law, Megan; and grandparents, John and Flo DeBoer and George and Bev Currie.
Survivors: Children, Tucker and Charlie; father, William G. Currie; brother, Mike (Melissa) Currie and their children, Mackenzie, Zach, Stephanie and Whitney; brother, Ryan and his children, Connor, Caitlin, Casey and Cami; sister, Courtney (Alex) Bianchi, and their children Natalie, Claire and Mia; fiance, Kacie Hamric and her son, Braxton; and an army of loyal friends.
