Jason was executed around 10 p.m. on 10/14/2004, as he waited for food in McDonald's drive thru at 9 th. & Spring Streets in Reading, Pa. Five individuals surrounded his car, 3 on the passenger side, one in the rear and the gunman who was at the drivers door and shot Jason 5 times in the face and neck. They all wore hoods to cover their faces.

The lighting at in the drive thru was not very bright, and they had an old reused tape in the surveillance camera that only produced blurry images.

Jason was executed because he was at a friends the week before watching a movie and had just ordered pizza, there was a home invasion where three men came in, robbed & killed his friend Mike Colon on 10/3/04. Jason was able to identify the one robber because he went to school with him.
