Obituary: Jason Franklin D'Agostino
Jason Franklin D'Agostino entered heaven's gates on Feb. 7, 2010. He was born in Newport Beach, Calif., on May 22, 1987. He was a much beloved brother, nephew, cousin, grandson and son.

As a young boy, Jason was full of promise and potential. He excelled in athletics, playing a vast range of sports including volleyball, baseball, basketball, soccer, tennis and karate. Upon entering high school, his focus began to switch from athletics to the arts. He began playing the guitar and experimenting with various forms of visual arts, including sketch drawings and oil painting. He was very popular (especially amongst the ladies...), and widely admired by his friends for his creativity and unique personality. He graduated from Thousand Oaks High School in California with a 3.6 GPA. After high school, he spent a year in Santa Cruz, Calif., living with his brother and attending a local community college. His artistic endeavors flourished during his time there as he began focusing on photography and music.

Soon after he moved to Santa Cruz, he began noticing a significant change in his physical ability. He began having trouble running and, within several months, he began using a cane to help him walk. During this time, he was diagnosed with Adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMN) at the UCLA Medical Center. He eventually moved home with his parents, and began transitioning into his new lifestyle as a disabled individual.

As Jason's condition worsened, his passion for the arts increased. He spent much of his time painting and taking photos of his surroundings. He eventually became wheelchair-bound toward the end of 2008. He spent much of his time swimming and socializing with neighbors. Despite advancements in bio-technology and medicine, his disease was incurable. His parents began caring for him on a more full-time basis, dedicating much of their energy to improving his quality of life. It wasn't until November 2009 that his health condition became critical. Over the next several months, until his death, family members and friends would visit frequently. The love they shared with him over this time was a true inspiration, and will never be forgotten.

He is survived by his parents, Frank and Cheryl; as well as his brother Justin; and many other close cousins, aunts and uncles, and beloved friends.

There will be a memorial service at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 14, 2010, at The Heights Church in Prescott, Ariz. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Royal Family Kids Camp (www.rfkc.org).

The parents would like to thank all those who cared for him over the years, especially the nurses and doctors at Barrow Neurological Institute, Yavapai Regional Medical Center, Yavapai Wound Care Center, Mountain Valley Rehab and Hospice Family Care. Our faith assures us that he is in a better place now. We can see him sprinting down streets of gold.
