Jason Lee Longie
September 11, 1975 - May 30, 2018

Residence: Grand Forks, North Dakota

Jason Lee Longie danced into heaven May 30th, 2018 at the age of 42. Jason was born September 11th, 1975 at Tioga Medical Center to Louie and Carol Longie of Tioga. He attended Central Elementary and graduated from Tioga High School in 1994. After high school he moved to Minot where he attended the Quentin N. Burdick Job Corps center. You could always find a smile on Jason’s face. He took pride in being the “BEST pizza maker in town”. He loved hanging out with family and friends. Nothing made him happier than when the music was cranked and he was ‘busting a move’. He was always first on the floor and the last to leave. Jason loved all forms of music and could dance to it all. Few could move like Jason…” Man that kid can dance!!”

Jason moved to Grand Forks, ND in 2007. After working various retail and service jobs, he found his passion working at Wal-Mart. Shortly before his passing he was promoted to a management position. Jason had many close friends that he worked with over the years, but nobody compared to his Wal-Mart friends and family. He took pride in what he did, and truly cared for everyone he worked with and many customers he knew. Jason never met a stranger. He would give his shirt off his back to anyone he thought was in need. Speaking of the shirt, Jason had a style of his own. He could be seen in many different styles but one that stood out most recently would be a Hawaiian shirt, flip flops, and his straw fedora hat.

Jason touched many lives, he taught us to dance through life and love unconditionally.

Jason is survived by his loving mother Carol Longie of Tioga ND, Brothers Louis (Cindy) Longie, Brian (Kimberlie) Longie, Cary (Becky) Longie all of Tioga ND, Mark (Shawna) Longie of Manhattan, MT, Kevin (Stephanie) Longie, Kelly (Stephanie) Longie of Bismarck ND; and many Nieces, Nephews-including his Godson Kellen, Cousins, Aunts and Uncles. He was preceded in death by his father Louie Longie, and Grand Parents Peter and Natalie “Rose” Longie and Ida Moe and Carlie Moe and cousin Connie Wold.

Words cannot express the loss we all feel in losing Jason so soon, in such a horrific manner. He will always be remembered with a huge smile, a big hug, a frim handshake, and a very warm heart. He didn't let life get him down and spread his love of life to all who knew him. He was best known to the younger ones as the best pizza maker in town, and oh how proud he was of his little house he had across from our new City Hall. His first step out as a man...… and what a decent, kind man he was. God be with you all, you are in so many prayers, and hearts. I will always remember him with that boyish grin, and happy disposition. Rest in Heavenly Peace Jason. Until we meet again, you are with us in our thoughts.

I'm very sorry for the loss of Jason. I live two blocks from where this terrible fate took place. I along with my friends were very shocked by all this. I knew Jason in different ways but the best way was his personality. He was a very nice and funny person. We talked a lot at Walmart. He was a hard worker and loved the spot-light. If it wouldn't have been for the storm, I would have been at your Superbowl Party. You are and will be missed. May Jesus have mercy on you. Amen.

Carol, boys and families....My heart was broken when Kathy called and told me about Jason. I have so many wonderful memories of he and the boys. I especially love the memory of Jason running around in his red pjs with the feet in them. I’m not sure what was more red, his hair or the pajamas. I feel like Kathy and I grew up with all of you. I love you all and send you my thoughts and prayers. God bless Jason. I will miss him dearly.

Love, Kim.

Our condolences to you as go through this most difficult time. Jason had a way of bringing a smile to my face (and lots of times laughter) whenever he would 'pop' into my classroom. I thoroughly enjoyed the conversations and time we spent together. Praying for God's loving arms to provide comfort to you all.

Carol, Louis, Brian, Cary, Mark, Kevin, Kelly, and families,
I am having trouble finding the words to express the things I want to say. I have so many memories of all of you. Like Kim said, we grew up with your family. Carol, my very first job in the whole world was helping you with the house and with the younger boys when you were expecting Jason. After he was born, he quickly became my little buddy. We all spent hours playing , laughing, rocking, singing and the list goes on. One of my favorite memories was when the little boys and I would crank up the record player, turn up the volume, and we would dance… oh the moves we had! We had a couple of favorite songs, Sugar Sugar and Dizzy, and we would play them over and over. We danced ourselves silly, sang at the top of our lungs, and oh how we would all laugh….. so much joy.
My heart is very heavy for all of you. Please know that you are very much in my thoughts and very much in my prayers, now and in the days to come.
Sending much love,
Kathy

I worked closely with Jason at Walmart every day and knew him well. He was a wonderful person that never said an unkind word about anyone. I will miss his smile and happy attitude the most. He was very easy to get to know.. was a hard worker and had faith. I will miss him coming in the morning for his cappuccino to start the day!! Rest In Peace my friend, until we meet again! Prayers for his family... heaven gained a dancing angel! ????????????

Dr. Kelly Longie, Dr. Kevin Longie and Dr. Traxinger-Longie, our deepest sympathies to your families as you celebrate your brother's life. My smiles replace your tears in the days ahead. I am thinking of you all.

My heart goes out to Jason's family, friends, and any of us that he influenced with his happy live life to the fullest personality that he definitely had. Although Jason will only continue to do a dance beside all of us in spirit, there surely still will be a part of everyone that will be missing him being here physically. Thoughts will stay positive though, for he has been given his angel wings n is now able to watch over us n dance beside the Lord. So, I say to you kind spirit n fellow classmate, until our paths may cross again, may peace be with you Jason, the Lord as called you for a dance of his own, and although you were taken much to soon, we must allow you to do his style of dance n follow alongside him where your needed.
