Jason Travis Fox, 48, of Redwood City, California passed away on November 15, 2020. He died tragically and unexpectedly but doing something he loved, diving and spearfishing.
Jason was born on June 6, 1972 in Asheville, NC to Jack and Betty Fox. From an early age, Jason was full of life and love. He was kindhearted and possessed an adventurous spirit, viewing life as an expedition. He had a unique gift of putting others at ease showing care and concern. A devoted Christian, he pointed others to Christ in word and deed, living out his exemplary faith.
As a child Jason loved spending time outdoors, fishing, hunting and exploring as well as taunting his two older sisters. He graduated from T. C. Roberson where he competed on the wrestling team. It was during his teen years that he taught his nieces and nephews how to moon walk, added to his mother’s anxiety by building a BMX bike ramp in the front yard and finding practically any adventure to share with friends. Though truly kind, he was opportunistic in giving others a scare which usually ended in a loosening of the lips or side-splitting laughter. At Appalachian State University, he explored his artistic ability, earning a degree in Communications, and taking an interest in rock climbing and Taekwondo. Upon graduation he worked for Gerber and then moved to use his tech-savviness for building a career with IBM. Starting in Atlanta, Georgia, the company took note of his work and devotion and in promotion relocated him to Austin, Texas and then to San Francisco, California where he worked and lived for the past 21 years. He was a world traveler and was often sent to places like India on business to aid companies assimilate into the IBM corporation. It was in California that he developed a passion for sailing, deep sea fishing, and watching the Giants from his boat in the Frisco Bay. He continued his education, earning a masters in Technology Commercialization from University of Texas- Austin. He had a love for dogs and a passion for training them. Jason was truly an unselfish soul who loved everyone he met. Those who had the pleasure of knowing him enjoyed the sensation of feeling quite at home sharing tantalizing stories, laughter and adventures.
Jason is survived by his wife Ania Weseloh Fox, stepson Kyle, mother Betty Fox, and two sisters, Debbie Davis (Jerry) and Pam Gibbs (Steve) as well as a number of nieces, nephews and cousins. He is predeceased by his father Jack Fox.
