Jason Beaird was diagnosed at age 37 with multiple myeloma (MM), which is a cancer of the blood plasma cells and is quite uncommon in young persons. Jason passed away in March 2013 at the age of 42. He was a man of many attributes: hard worker, passionate athlete and caring husband and father.
He lived life to the fullest - competing in Ironman triathlons, playing college baseball, living abroad, coaching Little League baseball, and raising money for charities - most of which he continued to do even after he was diagnosed with MM.
He never let MM be an excuse to NOT live life to the fullest!
