Jason Thomas Blowers, 40, of Austin, Minn., died at his home on Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2013.


Jason Thomas Blowers was born September 25, 1972, in Minneapolis to Michael and Charlene (Heimer) Blowers. He also had a sister, Jenny, who will never forget sitting and talking with him even though she could never get a word in. He graduated with honors from Riverland Community College with an industrial maintenance degree. Jason also worked at Streaters. He was the proud father of four children: Ryan, Calin, Brodi and Olivia.

Jason loved going to the movies and going on bike rides with the kids. He was an avid fan of the Twins and Vikings. He enjoyed giving people crap and if you ever needed to know something, he was the one to ask. He always gave his mother a hard time about being a democrat and he always talked about the military with his father and Uncle Paul.
