Jason Clawson

Jason Clawson- Widower, Father, Therapist, Friend. A man whose life has been marked by both unimaginable loss and miraculous blessings. Jason faced one of the toughest challenges anyone can face when he lost his beloved wife Valerie to stage 4 colon cancer, leaving him to grieve with his two young boys.

In the depths of his grief, Jason found a way to heal by helping others. He started a non-profit and business called “Hope Kit”, which provides Hope Kits to those who need them the most, offering comfort and support to those going through their own hardships.

As a therapist with over 15 years of experience working with individuals facing life-altering events, grief, trauma, and mental illness, Jason has a unique perspective on the power of resilience and the human spirit. He believes in the importance of following God’s path and has dedicated himself to bringing joy and hope to those who need it most.

Despite the challenges he has faced, Jason’s story is one of hope and miracles. He found love again and remarried, and less than a year later, he and his wife Kirsten were blessed with a miracle child, something they were told was impossible.

Through it all, Jason’s faith has been his guiding light, helping him find purpose in the midst of tragedy and bringing him closer to the tender mercies and miracles that are all around us. His story is an inspiration to anyone who has faced adversity in their lives, showing us all that even in the darkest of times, there is always hope.
