Jason Lawrence Welker was born on September 16, 1976 in Saskatoon at St. Paul’s Hospital. Jason attended Victoria Elementary School and Nutana High School. He worked a few different jobs over the years but the food industry happened to be his thing and where he found his knack for cooking. Most recently Jason was very determined on receiving his Grade 12 Diploma and even more recently landed a job for a Landscaping Company that he was very proud of. Jason and Amy met in November of 2012 and were inseparable ever since. Jason was loving, kind, caring, funny, sarcastic, witty, stubborn, protective and very outspoken. Whenever you needed him, he never hesitated to help and was the type of guy that would give the shirt off his back. Jason passed suddenly on Saturday, July 10, 2021 at the age of 44 years. He is survived by Amy and her son Jayden; Jason’s daughter Tanis, Mother Susan, Father Larry, sister Mary-Jean; in-laws Mark and Maureen Nazar; Chelsea and Brendan Sowa; nieces Maryjo, Jessica, Erica and nephew Jordan; along with his great nieces and nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles and close friends that cared deeply for him. Jason was predeceased by his Grandparents Clayton and Shirley Welker; Grandparents Don and Margareta Ross; cousin Darren Belcourt; aunty Jodie Welker and uncle Roger Ross.

My condolences to Amy & all the family
Sorry for your loss
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at th
Really sorry to hear about Jason. I was just telling my kids about a cat that used to eat and sleep at both of our family houses when we were kids. One day Jason popped over our fence to say hi. Instead he saw the cat playing with us and said “Hey, that’s not your cat…That’s my cat!” We were little kids but I still remember his sense of humour and how he really cared about his sister.
