Jason Daniel Cox, age 48, of Elwood, Indiana passed away on Monday, November 14, 2022. Jason was born on April 27, 1974, to his parents, Danny & Betty (Montgomery) Cox in Connersville, Indiana.
Jason grew up in Tipton and attended Tipton High School. After high school, he worked in local factories. Most recently, he worked for the Elwood Call-Leader Newspaper.
In Jason’s spare time he enjoyed the quiet of being in a boat on the lake with his fishing pole in the water and the excitement of going to amusement parks. He loved to watch football whether on television or at the stadium! He was a huge supporter of the Indiana sports teams, Indianapolis Colts and Indiana Pacers. He enjoyed listening to music and you can sure bet no matter what he was doing, he had music playing. He was also a huge horror movie fan and always suggested a horror movie on family movie nights.
Jason was a family man at his core. He loved nothing more than to be surrounded by his family; they were incredibly close. He was a gentle soul that was kind to everyone he met. If you knew Jason, you loved him! His gentleness naturally drew children to him, they found comfort in his presence. Jason often spent time with his nieces and nephews, just hanging out doing what made them happy.
Those left to carry on Jason’s legacy of love are his mother, Betty Cox of Nevada; brother, Steve Cox of Elwood; sisters, Cathy Miller of Cicero, Tammy (John) Cox of Nevada; nephews, Wesley (Audra) Miller of Decatur, Benjamin (Kelsie) Raquet of Clearwater, FL, Shane (Kayla) Raquet of Mexico, IN; great nieces and nephews, MJ, Landon, Kendall, Jaylee, Kayson, Rainbow, and Eylonna.
Jason was welcomed into Heaven by his father, Danny Cox; nephew, Torey Cox; and great nephew, King Raquet.
A memorial service celebrating Jason’s life is being planned for a later date. We will update with details once they are available.
