Jason “Jay” Oneil Lowther, 39, of Marietta, Ohio, died after an extended illness, Sunday, May 19, 2019 at Cleveland Clinic. He was born in New Jersey July 13, 1979 to James Alvin and Edna Louise Layfield Lowther.

Jay attended Bergen County Tech, NJ and graduated from Ritchie County High School in 1998.

Jason, I will miss you so much. I remember our little band we had and how much you made us laugh in a good way. Your laughter and friendship meant a lot to me. I am very saddened by your passing away. Until we meet again my friend. God Bless your family also.
