February 26, 1981 -
May 21, 2010 Jason Rodriguez, a prominent artist, known by all as
J-Rod, left us on the twenty-first day of May 2010.
J-Rod was an
amazing friend, loving brother and adored son. He lived life wide open
as a brilliant rock star, philosopher and lover. Born in Texas, where he
spent his childhood enjoying the country life. Later, as a young teen,
moved with his family to Darmstadt Germany, where he picked up
skateboarding and became immersed into the art world. His talent was
nurtured as he grew more reknown. During 1998, he moved back to the
United States, spending his time between Florida and Virginia.
Occupationally he was a tattoo artist noted for his use of brilliant
colors and custom pieces. People handed Jason their most significant
life experiences and emotions to watch him turn it into a work of art
using poetry, music and illustration.
Jason celebrated life with
an easygoing spirit; always doing his best to care for others. Words
seem inadequate to express our condolences, as his light will shine on
A memorial service will be held on the 26th day of June 2010 in Lake Ridge, Virginia. Info updates & guest signing: Facebook.com/pages/Jason-Rodriguez-Memorial
