Jason was born on May 7, 1986 in St. Cloud to Tom and Julie (Stock) Zimmerman.  He graduated from Rocori High School in 2005 and from the St. Cloud Technical College Electrical Program.  Jason was employed as a Parks Supervisor for the City of Cold Spring prior to his move to the Public Works department with the City of Sartell in 2014.  Jason married Brianna Emslander on September 20, 2014 at Mary of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Rockville. He was a member of Mary of the Immaculate Conception Parish and the Waite Park Rifle Club as well as other hunting and fishing organizations.

 Jason was an avid hunter and outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting, fishing, hiking and the great outdoors.  Above all he treasured spending time with his family and friends.  He will be remembered for always lending a helping hand, his gratitude for kindness shown and his hard work ethic.  He will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered as a husband, father, son, brother, grandson, uncle, son-in-law and friend. 

Jason is survived by his wife, Brianna; children, Landon (4) and Everly (1); parents, Tom and Julie Zimmerman of Rockville; brothers, Jake of Cold Spring, John (Missy) of Richmond; grandparents, Chuck and Janice Stock of St. Cloud and Janet Zimmerman of St. Cloud;  parents-in-law, Ron and Brenda Emslander of St. Cloud; brother-in-law, Corey (Christy) Emslander of Sartell; nieces and nephews,  Raylan and Autumn Zimmerman and Hudson and Haidyn Emslander; and many other relatives and friends. 

He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Nicholas Zimmerman.

A heartfelt thank you to all who have shown love and support to our family during this difficult time.

Memorials are preferred in lieu of flowers to assist with an Education Fund for Landon and Everly.

Tom, Julie and family, I was so shocked and saddened to hear the news about Jason. I know we've lost touch over the years but my boys and I have the wonderful memories of T-ball, Sunday School and weekly playdates with your boys. I will always remember our friendship.

Dear Julie, Tom, Brianna and Family, Vince and I are sending love and support to your family. Jason is foremost in our minds at this difficult time. We have wonderful memories of the boys sitting at the council table after school. Such good boys. Jason was always special to me. He had a way about him that melted your heart. So glad I got to talk to him after mass a few years ago and see his little baby girl. 💕💞
