Jason was born July 21, 1984 in Florence, Alabama where he lived and grew up.

He was a graduate of Brooks High School where he lettered in both football and track and field, ultimately serving as team captain. During his junior year he led the team to an amazing 11-0 record.

After graduating high school in 2002 he attended the University of North Alabama to pursue Criminal Justice, during this time he met the love of his life Kelli Pitts.

They married in 2006 prior to his acceptance into the Alabama State Trooper Academy where he graduated with the coveted Firearms Award (and the Driving Award according to him). With his wife Kelli and son Branton, the Hewett family became assigned to the Lauderdale County – Quad Cities Post.

Starting his career, Jason was recognized for his expertise in keeping the roads safe by processing the most Driving Under the Influence cases in the state of Alabama for 2007-2008. His hard-charging capabilities led to his selection to train with Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Phoenix, Arizona and he became the first Drug Recognition Expert for the state of Alabama. Furthermore, Jason was the Physical Training specialist responsible for the physical testing and evaluation for all Quad City Post troopers. He was also appointed as the Field Training Officer, ensuring all new personnel were trained to the highest standards to work with the elite Quad City Post troopers. He garnered the respect of the entire judiciary system through his impeccable professionalism and top-notch leadership.

In 2010 Jason and Kelli had their first daughter, Ella Kate followed by twin girls in 2013, Addie Jae and Evie Kole. Although dedicated to his career, Jason was the ultimate family man. His family was number one and nothing could stop him from showing up for his children. He was there for every dance, every game and every school function. His love for his family was unconditional and anyone who spoke to him knew where his priorities lay.

He never met a stranger and could get along with anyone he encountered. He had the ability to lighten the mood in any situation and could make anyone laugh. His love for running kept him in shape and involved in many local activities, especially the annual Special Olympics Torch Run. His other hobbies included following Toronto Maple Leafs, Alabama football, and anything 80’s.

Jason was a beloved son to Rose DiMauro Hewett and brother to Kim Patterson and James Hewett. He will be remembered by all his family and friends for his optimistic approach to life and welcoming smile.   

 He was preceded in death by his father, James P. Hewett, Sr.; maternal grandparents, Rose and Joe Dimauro; paternal grandparents, Dwight and Annie Hewett; aunt, JoAnn Urso; uncle, Johnny Urso.

Hewett, Jr. (Sara); father and mother-in-law, Joe and Callie Pitts; sisters-in-law, Jennifer Pitts and Beth Wright (David); nieces, Sophie and Chloe Patterson, Callie Beth Wright; and nephew, J.D.

  15. Kelli and Family, I have seen Jason out running but we were not privileged to know him. Repeatedly we have heard how wonderful a man he was and what a precious family you each are—part of the solution instead of part of the problem. Please know that you all are being lifted with love before our Father and will be in days to come.

  16. I read the wonderful expression of your feelings for your precious Jason.
    May the words found at Rev 21:4 bring a measure of comfort to all. There we learn of the cleansed earth where when those sleeping in God’s memory will be awakened and reunited with the living. It says: ‘And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
    There is also the real promise found at John 5:28,29 ‘Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, ‘
    May these promises of God motivate all to embrace the true hope that awaits us. Please visit jw.org
    most sincerely
