     Jason was born in Carson City, Michigan on October 20, 1973, the son of George William and Beverly Ann (Bengel) Goerge. Jason graduated from Fowler High School with the class of 1992. He married LuAnn Schmitt on October 26, 1996, at Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church, Fowler, MI.

    Jason worked for the Michigan Department of Corrections for 25 years. Jason's true passion besides spending time with his family was coaching. He coached little league for many years and began coaching high school basketball in 2007.  He was currently the head coach for the Portland Raiders' boys’ basketball team.  When not coaching, he was an avid Michigan State Spartan fan.  Jason never left your house without a big hug, kiss, and an "I love you!"  He was a lifetime member of Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church and involved in the Knights of Columbus and the Fowler Athletic Boosters. 

    He is survived by his wife LuAnn Goerge; children: Jamison Goerge and Morgan Goerge (Alex Pung); parents George and Bev Goerge; siblings: Brent Goerge, Nathan (Emily) Goerge, and Lindsey (John) Pline; father and mother-in-law Don and Joan Schmitt; in-laws: Steve (Jane) Schmitt, Donna (Al) Glowacki, Mike (Tracy) Schmitt, Jan (Dave) Feldpausch, and Bruce (Michelle) Schmitt.  He is also survived by many nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his grandparents: Bernard and Jean Bengel and Roy and Josepha Goerge, and several aunts and uncles.

    Memorials may be made to the Fowler Athletic Boosters or the Portland Athletic Boosters. Online condolences can be sent to www.smithfamilyfuneralhomes.com. The family is being served by Smith Family Funeral Homes - Goerge Chapel, Fowler, Michigan.
