In Memory

Jason Travis

Jason Travis

Arthur “Jason” Travis, born November 12, 1953 in St. Louis, MO., passed away in his sleep at the age of 63 on February 9, 2017 at Health South Hospital in The Woodlands, TX.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Art and Jay Travis.

Jason leaves behind his loving wife of 35 years, Danielle, daughters Jennifer Travis (Jordan Groll) and Jessica Travis, grandson Nolan Travis Groll, sister Kay Hubach, brother Stuart Travis (Janet), step-mother Jo Travis, nieces and nephews Jim Smith, Bill Smith, Dean Smith (Elizabeth), Mark Smith, Emily Rochy (Floris) and Justin Travis (Vidya), and numerous cousins and loving friends.

Jason grew up in Houston and graduated from Spring Woods High School. He graduated from Texas A&M in 1975 where he obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Distribution.

After experiencing a stroke in 2010, Jason and Danielle both retired and began checking off items on their bucket list. Over that seven year span, they enjoyed many adventures including an Alaskan cruise and numerous trips across the United States. Most recently a 7,000 mile trip exploring all of California.

Jason will always be remembered for his positive attitude on life paired with a kind and gentle spirit. His determination to live life to the fullest was quite evident in all that he did. He fought hard through many medical challenges these past 7 years. In 2012, he was a recipient of an eight - way kidney transplant begun by the donation of our former pastor and friend, Kathy Coble. He was looking forward to watching his new grandson grow up and traveling even more. Your family and friends will miss you dearly Jason and you will never be forgotten. Your legacy will live on.

Visitation will be held on Friday, February 17th from 6-9pm at Klein Funeral Home located at 16131 Champion Forest Drive in Spring, Texas.   A funeral service will take place at Klein United Methodist Church (5920 FM 2920 in Spring) at 3:00 pm on Saturday, February 18th with interment following at Klein Cemetery (9714 FM 2920 ). In lieu of flowers, the family asks that all donations be sent to a charity of your choice and that you consider signing up to be an organ donor.

So sorry to hear about Jason's passing.   I remember good times in homeroom at Spring Woods and later around the campus at Texas A&M.   My sympathies to his family.

Oh no, Stuart. You folks were amongst fondest memories of old days on Ganyard. We are in Texas Hill Country now. Will notify Bruce, Rochelle, & parents. Jason was a real buddy in high school. I named my son Travis. Had some good times. Dawn Redfield

I'm so sorry to hear this.  I met Jason through Dawn and we had good times; he was a good friend to all who knew him. Condolences to his family.
