Jason William Abbott, age 40 of Somerset, passed away July 10th, 2017. Jason was born on September 13th, 1976; the son of Brian Abbott and Deborah (Hunter) Abbott.  He attended elementary school as well as high school in Hudson, Wisconsin. Jason was General Manager of Allied Moving and Storage Inc. before becoming the Lead Installer at Aquarius Home Services.

Jason loved his family and friends above anything else in life. His genuine and selfless personality was felt by everyone that got to know him. Sports and entertainment were also greatly important throughout Jason’s life. As an avid fan of good music, Jason could often be heard singing along to the works of Frank Sinatra, or whichever artist happened to be on his radio in the car; he also had a profound interest in community theater. Jason became a fan of many sports; he was proud to be a Minnesota Timberwolves fan and also followed the Green Bay Packers. He was actively involved throughout his son’s hockey seasons as well, traveling all over the state of Minnesota to watch the games and show his unwavering support.

Jason will live on in the hearts of his son, Cody LaCosse; daughter, Bronte Ayre; parents, Brian (Joan) Abbott of Minong, WI, and Deborah (Lance) Conley of Hudson; siblings, Janelle (Brian) Abbott-Schak of Lake Elmo, Rich Schrader of Colorado Springs, CO, Jenni Abbott of Hudson, Michelle (Luke) Thorson of Hudson, John Noreen of Hudson, Allison Conley of Hudson, and Kevin Conley of Hudson; grandmother, Catharine of Edina, MN; his best friend, Megan (Nate) Gooden; and his dog, Jethro.

He is preceded in death by his grandparents, William Abbott, Nancy Greenwood, and David Hunter.

A gathering of family and friends will be held from 4:00-7:00 p.m. on Friday, July 14, at the O’Connell Family Funeral Home, 520 S. 11th St., Hudson, with a brief time of reflection at the conclusion. All who loved Jason are welcome to attend. Memorials are preferred in lieu of flowers. 

Jason Abbott's Tribute Wall

Tributes (11):

  1. So sorry to hear of this loss. I grew up with Jason in elementary and always knew him to be a good guy. Although I haven’t seen him in years, it is still sad to know that we lost someone like Jason. May God bless the family and loved ones in mourning.

  2. Your last day.
    The Lord knows our last day before he places us in the womb. I always wonder, if we knew it would it change how we were in our lives. I always believe it is better not to know, but then, if we knew, we’d be blessed with a good-bye. A party the day before to see everyone that we hadn’t seen or things that were left undone. I continue to learn this the hard way. Thanks, because no matter what, you were always there. You made Dad feel special and always thought to call him. Thanks for being the kind and good person that you were. I remember when you’re mom was carrying you, she held true to her love every single day of that journey. Afterward, I got to watch you grow for the longest time, until, well, life… what can I say. I wish I had gotten ahold of you more often, but I am truly grateful I got to know the Man.. Clayton still has all the family pictures that you didn’t get a chance to pick up. You wanted your mom and her sisters to have it and so we got it there. I promise it will get delivered. I know, at this time, they will enjoy the walk through memory lane that those pictures will bring. Love to the whole family, I’m sorry we didn’t stay in touch. All of you were always the reason that I was okay with my parents divorce, because, I was blessed with a whole lot more family and a whole lot more love. Say hi to your Grandma and my dad for me. I love that you will be gathered to your people and begin to enjoy the blessings of heaven that the rest of us imagine. LOVE TO YOU ALL

  4. Jason,

    I’m devastated that you’re gone. Your smile, your laugh and your heart will forever be missed. I hope where ever you are, you’re at peace.

    I’ll cherish the memories we had together, our silly high school shinanigans mean so much more. I mourn along side many others who had the honor of calling you their friend.

  5. Dear Debbie and Family,

    I am so sorry for the passing of your beloved son. Jason was a friend of my stepson’s when they were in high school so he visited my home on numerous occasions. He was a really nice young man. Again, so very sorry. Please take care and know all of you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Lots of love,


  6. Jason,
    Even though it has been years since we last saw each other. You are a part of many of my fondest memories acting, dancing, singing, and directing with you and for you. I am deeply saddened by your sudden passing. I for one am blessed to have had the time I did with such a wonderful, cheerful, and courageous person as you. I will miss our late night set building nights and planning event nights. Whenever I think of my many years in theatre I will and have remembered the many projects and shows we did together with fondness. It saddens me that there will not be a chance for an encore for the two of us, but I will look for you when it is my time to join you in heaven.

  7. Oh my Jason, you are gone? Hopefully in some Prior Lake Players capacity on the big stage in heaven or soon to be watching our new Timberwolves squad that you have waited so long for. Best wishes and break a leg Jason.

  8. Oh Jason. I’m so so sad about this. It’s been so long, but you have and always will hold a special place in my heart.

    Love to your friends and family. May the memories help ease the pain.

  9. There are simply no words so I won’t try and come up with any. My heart breaks for all of you. He is already missed. (((HUGS))) to one and all. Love, Melanie

  10. Jason from the day you were born you were a blessing to everyone that encountered you and the back bone in our family. You warm smile and infectious laugh will forever be etched in my mind. When someone needed help with anything you were there. Thank you Jason for making this world a brighter place… until we meet again Jason farewell for now…love you always Auntie Dolo

  11. I have been blessed to call you my nephew. Your wit, compassion, love of family and community will be missed immensely. You have been a beacon of light in our family. Forever loved and cherished.
