Jason Allen Boernson, age 37, of Harrison, passed away Friday, July 10 (2020) with his family by his side, at Hospice of the Hills. Jason was born on Oct. 30, 1982, in Harrison, the son of Rhonda (Bailey) and Tommy Pulliam and Jeff Boernson.
Jason was a member of Red Oak Baptist Church and a lifelong resident of Harrison. He married the love of his life, Sheryl (O’Briant) Boernson, on Oct. 4, 2014, at Twelve Oaks Mansion. He was a 2001 graduate of Bergman and was known as the “Pepsi Man” for 19 years doing sales for Pepsi. Jason had leukemia as a child and because of his love of NASCAR, he requested through Make-A-Wish to meet Dale Earnhart Sr. He shared his love of NASCAR with friends and family and was an avid Razorback fan in a house divided, with Sheryl being an LSU fan. He has always been a fan of Elvis, Meryl Haggard, Johnny Cash, and CCR, and enjoyed fishing, but rarely had a chance to go.
Jason, above all, was a man dedicated to the Lord. He would never miss any opportunity to share his faith and care for others in need.
His family was his world and his kids would say that dad was always laughing and telling jokes, and the love he felt for his wife was endless. The love he showed for his wife, children, grandchildren and family will forever be felt. The love for his friends set the foundation for a deeper relationship for their families. Even after cancer took his voice, he continued to share positive messages on Facebook about caring for others and loving the Lord.
Jason is survived by his wife, Sheryl, of the home; his parents; his grandparents, Donald and Mary Bailey and Shirley Bailey; two sons, Hunter Allen Boernson and Paul “AJ” Lummus; four daughters, Jayleigh Kate Annie Boernson, Kourtlin (Jacob) Ricketts, Hailey Lummus, and Emberlynn Willhite; two grandchildren, Porter Ricketts and Teagan Ricketts; his step-brother, Cody Pulliam; his aunts and uncles; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
Visitation will be 6-8 p.m. Thursday, July 16, at Red Oak Baptist Church.
