Following the unexpected passing of Jason Moore, veteran bluegrass performer and bassist with Sideline, family and friends have established a pair of funds to assist his family with final expenses.
As some of you may know, with Jason suffering a major heart attack while on the road with the band, the costs associated with returning his body for burial near his home in North Carolina are quite substantial. And just as no one expects a healthy 47 year old man to die suddenly, no family has budgeted for coffin transfer fees.
The first is a memorial T-shirt offering with all proceeds from sales going directly to Jason’s family. The black shirts are available in three styles and eight sizes emblazoned with a pensive photo of Jason with his bass on stage printed on the front.
They can be ordered now from the Bonfire web site, with shipping to begin next week.
Some members of his family have also established a fund with a regional bank convenient to Jason’s widow, Mollie, the Woodforest National Bank. To make a donation by mail, send a check to the following address:
Jason Moore Bluegrass Memorial Fund
C/O Mollie Moore
304 E. Arbor Lane
Eden, NC 27288
To ensure that the check is properly credited, note that it is for the Jason Moore Bluegrass Memorial Fund, and indicate these last four digits of the account number: ******8108.
Donations and T-shirt purchases will provide some welcome assistance at a very difficult time for the Moore family, and you can be sure of their gratitude.
