Jason Alfred Morin, age 52 of Buffalo, MN, passed away September 14, 2023.

He was born on October 5, 1970, to proud parents, Thomas and Loretta (Wurm) Morin.

Jason’s life was a testament to the power of compassion, kindness, and unwavering friendship. He had a natural ability to bring smiles to the faces of everyone he encountered. His gentle nature and kind heart endeared him to all who had the privilege of crossing his path. Jason was the embodiment of loyalty, always ready to extend a helping hand and offer support to his friends and family in their times of need.

One of Jason’s many remarkable qualities was his fun sense of humor. His laughter was infectious, brightening even the darkest of days. He had a unique talent for finding joy in life’s simplest pleasures and sharing that joy with others. Whether through a clever joke or a warm smile, he could effortlessly lighten the mood.

Jason’s last wish was simple yet profound: that his family would continue to take care of each other with the same unwavering devotion that had always bound them together. The last words he wrote were a poignant reminder of the love that defined Jason’s life and will continue to be a guiding light for his family and friends in the days and years ahead.

He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Roland and Marie Wurm and Alfred and Margaret Morin.

Jason is survived by his parents, Thomas and Loretta (Wurm) Morin; siblings, Dale Morin, Lisa (Mike) Stender, and Anne Pentz-Morin; nieces and nephews, Christopher (Amber) Morin, Alison Stender, Kayla Stender, Drew Stender (Desteny Salinas), Jozie (Andy) Gonzalez, and Braden Pentz (Sam Hoffman); great-nieces and nephews, Lillian Barlage, Mira Morin, Mason Morin, and Theo Jay Gonzalez. Jason was proud to be Jozie’s godfather and Theo was named in honor of Jason. Jason is also survived by many other relatives and friends.

    I’ve had the honor of working with Jason for about 2 years. I would always tell him that his smile was the sunshine in the building, and it was true. He had quite the sense of humor and he will truly be missed. I would miss our conversations, they were all very meaningful, I’d always stop by to see him whenever I visit MN. Sending my deepest condolences to Jason’s parents, siblings and family. May he rest in peace.

    I was fortunate enough to spend many hours working in the kitchen with Jason at Country Kitchen aka then Brooks Family Dining. We had so many laughs and also he worked hard! He had a quick smile and was always full of energy with a hint of mischievous look. I know he touched so many lives in such a caring and enduring way.. He will truly be remembered and missed… Dan Tilus
