Jason Michael Neff unexpectedly left this life on the morning of Wednesday, November 24, 2021, much too early, at the age of thirty-seven. Originally from Claymont DE, Jason graduated from Smyrna High School in 2002. Jason eventually moved to Rio Grande, NJ in 2012, where he later became employed at Michaels Arts and Crafts. Jason was an essential member of the Michael's team until taking leave, due to health issues, in late 2021. Over the years Jason was entrusted with setting the store's visual merchandising. He took great pride in it as it gave him the opportunity to let his creativity and organizational skills shine. Jason particularly loved to stage the holiday displays and products at Michael's for everyone to enjoy. In acknowledgement of his years of hard work, Jason was set to receive a promotion to management which he was greatly looking forward to.
Outside of work, Jason really loved music, particularly Country. He also enjoyed his TV time. Comedy, cooking, sci-fi and reality were at the top of his list. Jason looked forward to movie nights as well; Musicals especially. Reading or listening to an audio book on long walks was another relaxer for him. Jason greatly enjoyed nature and animals. He had an eye for photographing both while on trial hikes, beach walks and road trips. Trips to Atlantic City for some gambling and dinners was another thing Jason really looked forward to. Jason had a love and savvy for all things tech as well, particularly smart-technology. He would often volunteer to set-up devices for family and friends, making their lives easier and so they could be interconnected with him.
Jason had a heart that shouldn't have fit in his body. He was such a gentle man. Reserved to a point but that all melted away once you got to know him. Those he was closest to knew a kind, sweet, giving person. He was always willing to help a friend and did all that he could to make life easier for those he loved. Jason also had an imaginative, wicked, practical joke side that made everyone laugh and kept them on their toes. Jason was so easy-going and it didn't take much to make him happy. At the end of the day, it made him happy just to know that he was accepted and loved.
Jason was pre-deceased by his mother, Deborah Powers-Keller, and father, Michael Richard Neff. He is survived by his step-father, Francis Keller, his fiancé, Sean Love, future mother-in-law, Laura Love, as well as, close friends and his beloved min pin, Autumn.
