Jason Timothy Smith was born in McAlester, Oklahoma, on September 18, 1978, to Tim Smith and Denise Wiseman. He grew into a young man with a strong work ethic, an intelligent mind, and a wit that never failed to make people laugh. He possessed a sense of responsibility and a deep love for family and friends. He was a knife and gun-carrying crack shot by the time he was 10. He loved everything mechanical and grew a passion for anything on wheels. The outdoors was his safe place, and hunting and fishing were his passion.

Jason was a devoted and loving husband to his wife, Amy. They realized and built a love and a profound friendship that was evident to everyone. Their daughters, Taylor and Julia, were priority. Jason was the most amazing dad and guided his family by modeling the best of morals. He was excited and proud to be PaPa to Emmett and Jaxon.

He worked as fleet manager and mechanic for Drilling Fluids Technology, was a member of Community Faith Church and the Lions Club, all while being there for his friends and family. He was a humble Titan and gave his admiration and credit to anyone but himself. As a matter of fact, he’d be pretty upset with us right now for fussing over him so much. He was a man of virtue and grace who practiced honor without hypocrisy. He made us feel better with his easy ways and ever-present wit. He selflessly and tirelessly set examples and was a friend to all.

Jason was escorted home by a multitude of first responders. The family is extremely appreciative of this memorable welcome home. Let this stand as witness to the magnitude of Jason’s life and the impact he made. Honor his memory with your actions of love and kindness to loved ones and strangers alike, and shoot lots of bullets through lots of guns…he’d like that, too!

Jason was a captain and devoted member of the Balko Volunteer Fire Department. He spent many hours maintaining vehicles and answering the call when a fire or accident was paged out. Jason was burned when his truck flipped while fighting a wildfire. He succumbed to his injuries five weeks after the accident. We miss him tremendously but take great comfort that he is resting in the loving arms of Jesus.
