Jason Jennings Milholin 34, office manager at Merv Zimmerman, Inc.

By on April 17, 2013

Jason Jennings Milholin, 34, died unexpectedly in his home in Lititz, Monday, April 8, 2013.

Born in San Diego, Calif., Jason moved to Lititz with his father in 1986, and was a member of the Warwick High School class of 1996. Following graduation, he went to work for his uncle at Fullnet, a computer internet service company in Indiana. He returned to Lititz in 2001, where he was employed by Merv Zimmerman, Inc. as a purchasing assistant to his father. Jason’s computer programming and office management skills propelled him to the position of office manager in his 12 years of service there.

Survivors include his father: RJ Milholin of Lititz; his mother: Cathy DuBois and Dr. William DuBois, of Stanwood, Mich.; his stepmother: Valerie Milholin; and his half-brother: Troy Milholin, both of Landisville; paternal grandparents: Clark and Joan Milholin of Holiday, Fla.; maternal grandparents: Ernie and Lenora Challender of Jasper, Ind.; numerous aunts, uncles and cousins, and a whole family of co-workers at Zimmerman’s.

Jason was an avid fan of the Detroit Lions, decorating his home and faithfully cheering his whole life for this losing team. They never did make it to the Super Bowl in Jason’s lifetime, but "Thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Corinthians 15:57). We have confidence in Jason’s victory through God’s saving grace. As a baptized, confirmed, and confessing Christian, he surely rests now in the arms of his Savior.

A viewing was held at Mt. Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church on April 13 followed by a funeral service.
