Obituary for Jason Michael

Jason Michael Brisson, age 40, a resident of Isle LaMotte, Vermont, lost his courageous battle with cancer on Wednesday, August 23, 2017 at the UVM Medical Center with his wife and family lovingly by his side.

Born in Fort Walton Beach, FL on August 5, 1977, he was the son of Timothy & Lola (Bergeron) Brisson, of South Hero, VT. Jason attended South Burlington High School and played on the football team. Jason graduated from Johnson State College in 2000, majoring in Environmental Studies.

Left to cherish in his memory is his beloved wife Ashley (St. Lawrence), whom he married on June 30, 2007. Besides his parents and wife, Jason also leaves behind his grandfather, Leonard Brisson; his sisters: Jennifer & Robert McAllister and their children Ryan, Leigha, Cassidy, and RJ; and Jessica & Jamie Mcallister and their child Connor; all of South Hero as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, & friends.

Jason was employed with Mammut Sports Group in Williston, in his youth he worked as a Camp Counselor at Hochelaga & Abenaki, and as a Park Naturalist for Vermont State Parks.

Always an outdoorsman; his passions were hunting, fishing, camping, gardening, foraging, exploring, and spending lots of time with those he loved; especially his nephews and nieces. Jason had fond memories of his Boy Scout days with childhood friends. He hiked a portion of the Long Trail in college which cemented his love of the mountains. Jason always had a bright smile on his face. His knowledge of nature was expansive and friends sought him out for answers.

Special thanks to the medical teams at University of Vermont Medical Center & Tufts Medical Center of Boston. Kudos to nurses and staff who made his journey comfortable & dignified.

Friends and Family may call on Thursday, August 31st, 2017 between 4:00pm and 7:00pm at Kidder Memorial Home, 89 Grand Ave., Swanton, 05488. The Liturgy of Christian Burial will be held for Jason from the Chapel at St. Anne's Shrine in Isle LaMotte, VT on Friday, September 1st, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. Jason will be buried at the South End Cemetery in Isle LaMotte; overlooking his new home and his gardens.
