My dear friend Jenny lost her little brother yesterday. My heart is breaking thinking about her, thinking about my own little brother and the rest of my family. If you know Jenny, please send her as much love as you can right now. And if you'd like to get in touch with her, let me know.

Jason Kiyoshi Harada passed away July 28th, 2008 at his home in Bend. He was a 2000 graduate of Bend High School. Following high school he pursued a degree in Culinary Arts at COCC. He went on to work at several eateries in Portland and Bend, most recently at Summit Stage and Saloon.

Besides his love for cooking, he enjoyed music, theater, camping, hiking, video games and just hanging out with his friends. He will forever be remembered for his sense of humor, his warm heart and big bear hugs.

Jason is survived by his mother Sally Harada, and sister Jenny Harada, both of Bend, Oregon. He was preceded in death by his father, Dan Harada.

The memorial service will be held at Niswonger-Reynolds Funeral Chapel on Thursday July 31, 2008 at 4 p.m.
