Jason Leffler

mourning the loss of jason leffler

Jason Leffler died Wednesday night after being in an accident in a dirt car race event in New Jersey. He was only 37-years-old.

I didn’t know Jason personally, but losing him is devastating to me. I’m not sure if it’s because he was so young, or because he was a father, actually it’s all of that. My heart breaks for his son, his family and his friends.

I interviewed Jason in Las Vegas a few years ago, asking him the 10 questions they always ask from Inside the Actor’s Studio, and the final question is especially significant now. I think his response can offer some small solace that even though he’s not with us anymore he’s still doing what he loved to do.

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
Look at this beautiful race track, you can race for eternity here.

Rest in peace, Jason.

    So sad for his family and friends, but I hope that’s exactly what God said to him when he arrived. He can race for eternity and be a guardian angel for his son. Tragic loss, though. Another reminder that none of us is guaranteed tomorrow.
