Jason M. Fletcher of Chelmsford

 

5885-fletcherJason Fletcher, a beloved family man, teacher and coach, passed away peacefully in his home September 27th 2016.

Whether you knew him as "Bubs" "Bubba J" "J-bird" or "Daddy", Jason was a remarkable people person.  His laughter, genuine kindness, and unbelievable big heart are a tragic loss for his family and the community.

Jason has deep roots in Chelmsford, Massachusetts living in town most of his life. Born in 1973, to Jack and Mary Jane Fletcher Jason attended Chelmsford public schools, Ithaca College, and UMass Lowell. Jason was an excellent football and hockey player throughout high school and college.

In 1998, Jason began an incredible career in education. As a teacher and coach, Jason inspired kids to achieve more than they thought possible by demanding that they believed in themselves. His passion for his work in the classroom will be missed deeply by all of his SEEM Collaborative family where he worked for 18 years. Jason's loss will also be felt by the students and teachers at Chelmsford High School where he spent the better part of his life on one of many athletic fields.

"Bubba" will also be deeply missed during Wednesday night cards and Motorcycle weekend by his countless friends who shared a lifetime together.

Jason will be missed most by his adoring family. His wife Tara Fletcher and daughter Abigail will miss his smooches, hugs, and cuddles beyond imagination.  The house owned by his loving parents, Jack and Jane Fletcher will have a fewer jokes and one or two less fights about athletics at Chelmsford High School. Jason's loss will be felt by his sisters Kelly Pitts and her husband Edward Pitts, Katie Garcia and her husband Christopher Garcia, and his beloved brother Todd Fletcher who shared an extraordinary bond as siblings. Jason's favorite chair will sit empty at the house of his adoring in laws Alex and Kathy Souleotis of Chelmsford. His brother-in-law Kenneth Souleotis will miss Bubba's ability to lighten up his sister at a moments notice. Ben Pitts, Julia Pitts, Caroline Pitts, Maya Garcia, and Julian Garcia are devastated by the loss of their Uncle Bub's who would take them boating on Lake Winnipesaukee, water skiing and the fine art of buying junk at yard sales. Jason will also be missed by numerous Aunt's, Uncle's, Cousins, Nana, and Grampy.

  6. Jim Collins says:

    Jack, Jane, Todd and the entire Fletcher family. Please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss. My thoughts and Prayers are with you all during this difficult time. The one memory I recall of Jason was getting Todd out of the locker room for an interview after he had great game. After the interview was completed I remember Jason putting Todd in a headlock and asking him if he was a superstar now ? Jason obviously was proud of his brother but made sure he gave him the business. He always had a smile on his face. Win or Loss. – Jim Collins

  11. Beth Tilton (O'Neil) says:

    Mr.Fletcher, Kelly and family,
    I am so sorry for your families sudden loss. I wish I was able to attend the services, please know my thought are with you all during this time.
    I don’t recall meeting your son however I am sure if he was anything like you Jack I know he was a caring, funny, sensitive and postive role model who reached out to the ones who needed him the most. Bless you all.

  12. Elaine Lambert says:

    I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to the Fletcher family. There’s such a sense of helplessness when someone we love dies. I’d like to share some scriptural thoughts that really helped me. Prayer is so valuable at this time, but it’s not that prayer simply makes us feel better. 2 Cor. 4:7 says that God can give us, “… power beyond what is normal “, to go from one day to the next. This does not mean that we no longer cry or that we forget, but it means we recover. The reason we recover is because of our hope. Jesus Christ talked about our hope in John 5:28, “…all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out “. Jesus was referring to the resurrection; this is our hope that helps us recover and gives us power to go on.
    2 Cor. 1:3 describes our Creator as, “… the God of all comfort “. One way that God comforts us is by moving people who care about us to give us words of encouragement that we need to hear. May God (Ps. 83:18) grant you peace and comfort now during this time of sorrow.

  13. Kari and Siana Rosado says:

    Bubba, You were one of a kind. Thank you for being such a great role model to all these kids. Siana took her hockey skates out and skated on the ice for you tonight one last time. You will never be forgotten. Siana and I send our sincere condolences to the Fletcher family. May he Rest In Peace <3

  14. Peter Hantzis says:

    Dear Jack and Jane, having returned from your beloved son Jason’s wake tonight I wanted to share a few thoughts with you. Hopefully they will provide a little comfort to you. I have never witnessed anything like this level of tribute for anyone who has passed. Never anything even close to what I saw tonight. It wasn’t only the seemingly endless line of people waiting to share their love of Jason and condolences to you and to all of his family. What I saw in people’s eyes, past the grief and sadness was an amazing level of pride and gratitude for Jason. For the way that he lived his life. For everyone who he made better. For everyone who he supported, taught, guided and encouraged. He will be remembered always for the way that he lived his life. These memories will be eternal. So as we share in your sadness and grief please alow us to also share in what must be your great pride for this truly remarkable young man.

  15. Diane Valliere-Burlington studios says:

    Dear Jack and Family, My deepest condolences to you and your entire family on the unexpected passing of your son. Jack, although its been 10 years since I worked with you and the CHS athletic office. I still remember your humor and kindness toward me. I loved working with you and Carole and photographing all the sports Teams. Although I never met your family I just knew you had to have one beautiful and Happy family, because you were always so kind to me with a one of a kind personality. My husband Chuck and I send our deepest condolences during this heartbreaking time. Diane Valliere Dracut, Ma. Former Sports photographer Burlington Studios

  16. Colleen Gleason Zilmer says:

    Tara, Abby and Fletcher Family,

    I am so sorry for your incredible loss. Not that you would be surprised, but I too loved Jason’s infectious smile and his true ability to light up a room with his mere presence.

    One of my great memories of Jason was when I was honored to be able to stand at the podium when he was receiving my father’s memorial award when he was a senior in high school. He accepted the award and then immediately turned to give my sister and I a hug which also came along with his famous wink and thumbs up!

    I have no doubt that in the very near future his beautiful daughter Abby will one day be handing out an award to another deserving athlete in her Dad’s honor.

    Rest in peace Jason. You have obviously touched thousands of people’s lives including mine.

  17. Stephanie (MacDougall) Richards says:

    I was saddened to hear of Jason’s passing. My sincerest sympathies go out to your entire family. Please know you are in our prayers.

  19. Judy O'Connor says:

    To The Fletcher Family,

    I did not know your Son, my Niece, Katie, is friends with his Sister, in California. We all grew up in Chelmsford and attended CHS, myself, much earlier! I am so saddened to hear of the passing of such a young, vibrant, accomplished man! My condolences to his Family, Friends and Students.

  20. Kelly (Kinney) Fay says:

    Dear Fletcher Family,

    I am so sorry to hear of Jason’s passing. I hadn’t seen him since high school, but our paths had crossed many times over the last 6 months. It was no different when seeing him, always a huge smile and a hi Kel. On the first day of gymnastics for our girls, I watched him as he watched his daughter through the window. You could see in his face the joy he got from her, and how much love he had for her. Rest in peace Jason, your bright smile will be missed by all.

  21. Lisa Rosenblatt says:

  24. Father John W. Hanley, OMI says:

    To Jack and all the Fletcher family, please accept my sincere condolences and assurances of prayers during this time of the death of your beloved son Jason. I will remember you all at Mass this weekend.

  25. The McCurdy Family says:

    Our deepest sympathies to Tara, Abigail and the entire Fletcher family. Jason was an extraordinary man and played a huge role in helping my son integrate into the world again. He meant more than we can express. The knowledge that he instilled on the kids will continue to be a positive driving force within them. We were very lucky to know him.

  26. Frank and Laura Sexton says:

    We are so sorry for your loss.

  27. Jason Falardeau says:

    Always always smiling. We’d go many years between running in each other but we’d share a big smile and a laugh. Stick on the ice and head up Bubba.

  28. Steve Hadley says:

    Unexpected loss of someone that was so full of life can never be fully understood; but your Faith in God and his presence in your life will help you through this time of tragedy.

    Remember your friends are one with you, and will be there if needed. Use them during this time of questioning and grief.

    And ALWAYS keep in your heart: His legacy of life will continue and be always remembered

  40. Kristin Williamson says:

    Although I had only known Jason for a short time, the news of his passing came as a complete shock. Along with Tara, Jason coached my daughter Nora’s very first softball team, The Lightening, this past spring. The first time I met Jason I knew right away that he was one-of-a-kind. His smile was infectious and I could tell immediately that he had a heart of gold. Jason made such a huge impact on Nora from the beginning and she always looked forward to seeing him at the field. His ever-encouraging attitude and ability to make every kid a winner are things that you just don’t see everyday. Reading the memories that others have shared have only hit home what I already knew about Jason just from the short time I had known him. His absence is sure to leave an immense void in the community. Rest easy, Coach! Tara and Abby, you are in my thoughts.

  41. Christine Gorman Cullison says:

    Dear Jane, Jack & Family,
    I am truly sorry and am not able to comprehend the loss of your kiddo. Just recently, I met Todd, one of Jason’s friends when buying a cook top in Framingham, a couple of weeks ago, such a small world!
    Our prayers are with you.
    Love always,
    Chrissy Gorman & Harry Cullison

  44. Chris Kordish says:

    We’re so very sorry to hear of this terrible news. We offer our condolences to entire family. May Jason RIP.

  45. Nancy Janerico says:

    To the Fletcher Family
    My sincere condolences to all. I met Jason through SEEM Campus Academy. He went above and beyond to help my son through high school. If it weren’t for Jason, Joe may not have graduated. He was a wonderful man.

  46. Risa Dubin says:

    Dear Fletchers,
    I heard the news of Jason’s passing this morning, and truly, I am stunned. Jason was my most memorable student, and surely, one of my all time favorites. I loved all of his friends, and had many of them in the same senior English class. He and Kevin Branco were the tied winners of the class bake-off, which seems like it was held just last week. I remember it so well! I am working with student teachers through Bridgewater State University now and just last year one of my students was placed in the Middle School in Waltham where Todd works. He brought me up to date on all the news regarding Jason and his family and friends. Please know that you are all in my thoughts. I am so very sorry for our loss of a most wonderful person.
    Sending my love,
    Risa Dubin

  47. Toby and Julia Villineau says:

  50. Jennifer Balser-Adams says:

    Tara, Abigail, Mr. and Mrs. Fletcher, family and close friends…I am sorry and deeply saddened for your loss. I have not seen Bubba J for over 20 years! What I will always cherish about him was his infectious smile and his kind and gentle being. He was a good friend while at CHS. My prayers are with your family, may you rest in peace Bubba J, you were an amazing human.

  51. Marc F. Pelletier says:

    Condolences on behalf of the Central Catholic Baseball Team…in our thoughts & prayers.

  52. Julie MacPhee Phelan says:

    To the extended Fletcher Family, words cannot express how deeply sorry we all are. Life will never be the same for any of us whose lives were blessed to have known such a wonderful human being. May Jason somehow give you all some comfort from his new home in Heaven; whether showing you a simple sign, a warm memory, a song on the radio, an animals’ expression to show you he is with you and always will be. Our thoughts and prayers are with you now and in the most difficult times ahead. God Bless, Julie MacPhee Phelan and family.

  53. Gina (Coraccio) Kinney says:

    Tara & family, I am so sorry to hear of Jason’s passing. What a tragic loss for both your family and for Chelmsford. You are in my thoughts. Love, Gina

  54. Gail McGoldrick says:

    Dear Jane, Jack and all your family, As everyone feels, how sad. My deepest sympathy to the family. As I read thru all these wonderful notes, anyone who reads them will know exactly the kind of person Jason was. All these years I have known Jason he would always greet me with a big smile followed by a big hug. Moving away from Chelmsford, I had not seen him in awhile, well, just a couple of months ago, he had written something funny on face book pertaining to the high school years getting in trouble, of course I chimed right in to answer. Well, didn’t he answer right back saying hello and thanked me for always being there for “my Bubba’s”. He brought tears to my eyes as I have right now writing this. I will keep all of you in my prayers and know God will give you the special graces you all need to get thru this very hard time. I know you will all keep the wonderful memories you have. Take care of yourselves and each other.

  55. Michael says:

    I cannot find the words to describe the type of man that Jason Fletcher was. Jason was more than a teacher for me, for a short period of my life he had an immeasurable impact on the man I’ve become today. Jason Fletcher was a teacher, in a school full of kids who were labeled, shuffled through the system, thrown away, or just plain given up on. Jason was a man who went into work every day with one goal in mind; who can I help today? I sit here and write this choking up, knowing the kind of man Jason was, and the impact he had on me in such a short amount of time is nothing compared to the impact he has had on some other lives. I can only hope that one day, I am able to touch someone’s life, the way he touched mine. Rest easy Bubba…know that you’re thought about with laughs and smiles, and the tears are just a sign of how much everyone loved you.

  56. Michelle & Jim Buckland says:

    With deepest sympathy we send our sincere condolences to Tara,Abby and the entire Fletcher family. Wishing you love and strength as you all lean on each other and try to find peace coping with this tremendous loss. We are keeping you in our thoughts.

  57. James Kastritis says:

    Our deepest condolences go out to the Fletcher family & all those who knew Jason. Chelmsford & the world has lost one of its finest.

  58. Lisa (Legrand) Dickie says:

    My thoughts are with the Fletcher family during this difficult time. I remember being very little and watching Jason play baseball. He always went out of his way to be nice to me and that was true for all the years that followed. Jason was kind, funny and just all around a great person to be around.

  59. Patti & Ken Goodwin says:

    To the Fletcher Family,

    I hadn’t seen Jason in years, but he was one of those people who left an impression on you after you met him, someone whose name was mentioned and it would bring a smile to your face. May you one day find comfort in the memories of him. Our deepest Condolences

  65. Anonymous says:

    I’m sorry to hear about this loss and it deeply saddens me, bubba fletch did one thing that most people never preached, he always told me don’t sweat the small stuff and I lived by that for years.

  66. Paul Branco says:

    Fletcher Family,

    I’m not even sure where to begin… There are so many kind words that I’ve already read in these condolences, but I know that as good as they may make you feel, nothing will ever replace having Jason with you.
    I just want to take a minute and reflect about the amazing person that Jason was. He had an unmatched ability to make everyone feel welcome and loved. No matter how often I saw Bubs he would take the time to make me feel welcome, loved and like the most important thing in his life at that moment. The most amazing thing is that he made everyone feel that same way. His incredibly outgoing personality, love of life and sincere caring for everyone around him will forever be remembered.
    I can’t even put into words the loss that you must feel, but please know that Jason has touched every one of us like no one else could. He was and always will be an amazing friend, family man, coach, teacher and person. I realize that the loss we feel will never match the loss being felt by his immediate family, but please know that we all mourn with you and will remember Jason forever. I’m thankful for the time that I did get to spend with Jason and for the incredible impression that he left on our entire family. I know that he will always be with us in spirit and that his glowing smile and personality will never fade.
    Bubs… Thanks for being such a great friend to our family! You will forever be missed!
    Love, Paul

  67. Mike Piergrossi says:

We cannot possibly comprehend the depth of loss to his family and our entire community.

  81. Tracey Kelly says:

    Jason and I went to elementary school together and I hadn’t seen him since I moved in the 6th grade. I thought of him often though throughout the years, which might sound strange. However, that boy I knew was so kind, and sweet, and a little goofy, with a great laugh. He was one to be remembered and I always hoped he had a beautiful life. It sounds like he did. I’m so sorry that he is no longer with us. He left an impression on me and so many I’m sure. May the memories he made stay close to your hearts. I haven’t seen this person for 30 years, but I’m sad to hear of his passing. That speaks to lives he touched all through his short life. My most sincere condolences.

  82. Beth Adler says:

    To the Fletcher Family,
    I’m very sorry for your loss. Jason was such a kind person with a wonderful spirit. I only saw him occasionally around town as adults, but we had some fun times together as classmates. He always had a smile for everyone when he was young and that never lessened with age. During such terrible loss and grief I hope you feel some comfort knowing that his life touched so many people over the years.
    My sympathies,
    Beth Adler and Family

    To the Fletcher Family:

    I’m so saddened by the sudden loss of your beloved Jason. When I heard the news yesterday, the 1st image in my mind was of a young Jason in the late 80’s at CHS who’s seemingly shy smile made everyone a friend. That is how I will always remember him.

    To Coach Fletcher and his wife: You raised a wonderful boy into a kind, loving, gentle and selfless young man. You’re not supposed to go throught what you’re going through now. It’s not the natural progression we yearn for. My heart breaks for you. Thank you for sharing your son with all of us.

    To Jason’s siblings: I lost my sister 4 years, 3 months and 3 days ago. Its a crusing blow to your trust in the lie that everything happens for a reason, to lose a sibling. Nothing in life prepares you for it, it’s not something we ever consider, and it takes a long time to get over it…in fact, I’m not sure you ever do. I’m sincerely sorry for your loss.

    To Jasons frienss amd team mates: Tell stories,speak of him often, and don’t ever feel like you shouldn’t bring him up in a moment when everyone is smiling and happy. Don’t feel like you’ll bring them down with a memory. Or that you’ll remind someone he’s gone. His family won’t ever forget and they want to remember him. In the days, weeks and months ahead, they need to know you remember him.

    To Tara: Everthing I’ve read here is that you two were made for each other. I’m so very sorry that your love story had such a tragic end. Thank you for loving Jason and making him so happy and letting him be him.

    To Abby: Your Daddy was an amazing man who loved you more than life itself. Everyone I’ve talked to these last few days has confirmed that. Don’t ever think he isn’t with you. He will be forever.

    With sincerest condolences and deepest sympathy.

  97. Dale & Elaine Bartels says:

    Jack Jane and Fletcher Family:

    Our deepest sympathy goes out to all of you. There are little words to describe how we feel..Dale and I have so many fond memories of Jason and all of you at the West Point Beach. May God give you all strength to cope during this difficult time.

  98. Andy Kaknes says:

    This is beyond upsetting and such saddening news. I had his father Jack Fletcher as my math teacher for 3 years at CHS. I grew up down the street from Jason’s Grandfather and Great Grandfather, and I was their paperboy too. A great family that always made you feel welcome. I ran into Jason quite frequently since my return to town in 2008 after a 16 year hiatus. He always had a great smile and was a pleasure to chat with. My condolences to all family and friends of Jason “Bubba” Fletcher.

  99. Tom Doyle says:

    Jack and Jane – Nothing in life prepares you for the loss of a child. Our hearts ache for you and we will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Condolences to your entire family. Tom & Joan Doyle

  100. Dale & Elaine Bartels says:

    Jack Jane and Fletcher family:

    Dale and I were devasted when we heard about Jason. We have so many fond memories of all of us at the West Point beach and there are few words to express how we feel. Our prayers go out to all of you during this difficult time and may God give you all the strength to cope.

    Love Dale & Elaine Bartels
