Jason James Bowers, age 48, crossed quietly to the “Unseen World” on November 22, 2018 after a later in life struggle with addiction and mental health issues.
Jason was born March 9, 1970 in Huntsville, Ontario to Mervyn and Eileen (Armstrong) Bowers (predeceased). Jason grew up in Peterborough, graduating from Peterborough Collegiate Vocational School (PCVS), class of 1988. He continued his studies at Sir Sandford Fleming College, where he studied telecommunications (1990), George Brown College, where he studied electronics (1993), Rochester Institute of Technology where he studied computers, ultimately earning an MBA from California State University where he studied General Management.
Jason was known to his family, in his early life, as “the globetrotter” having worked in such far away and exotic locations as Uzbekistan, Singapore and Rio de Janeiro, to name a few. One of Jason’s proudest achievements was climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro.
Jason leaves behind his beloved sister Carol Gilmour (Dan), brothers John (Nancy) and Bryan (Donna-Marie). Jason adored his nephews; Kyle (Janine), Dillon, Mathieu, Joel (Nichole), Bryson (Cameron), Trent (Kirsten), and his nieces Elyse-Marie (Michael), Jenna-Marie (predeceased) and great niece, Alivia. Jason’s family are planning a celebration of life.
