Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Jason Christopher Ross, age 36, of Peachtree City, passed away October 25, 2021.
Jason was born in Atlanta on May 24, 1985 to the late Joseph and Pamela Ross. He grew up in Fayetteville alongside his sister Jennifer. Jason was a 2003 graduate of Fayette County High School. He went on to serve his country in the United States Marine Corps on Corporal Active Duty in Iraq from 2003 until 2009. He then began a career in the finance department of Blue World Pools where he worked for nine and a half years. Jason was wed to Briana MacDowell on October 10, 2020. The couple settled down in Peachtree City, Georgia with their three children.
Jason was a born again Christian and member of Go Church (formerly South Metro Ministries) for the past two years. Jason enjoyed watching and playing sports. Jason was a founding member of the Atlanta United MLS Soccer Season Ticket Holder. He excelled in competition and being physically active. Jason played as a goalkeeper for an adult soccer league for more than five years. His favorite pastime, however, was spending time with his family. He frequently attended Atlanta Falcons, United, and Braves games at Mercedes Benz and Truist Park. He enjoyed concerts, beaches, mountains, parks, pools, lakes, museums, aquariums, theaters, and Disney World every Christmas. The Ross family rarely “stayed in”. Jason was an excellent chef. He would smoke food on his Traeger smoker. He loved good food and trying new things. He was always looking for great seasonings and meats. Jason was considered a big kid. He and his wife played with the kids constantly, and there was always a dogpile in the living room of all the kids stacked on Daddy, by the end of the day. Jason will be remembered as a wonderful man and about as close to perfect as a human can be. He loved his family dearly. He had so much love for everyone (except the occasional biased soccer referee and Joe Biden – Let’s Go Brandon!)
Jason is survived by his beloved wife: Briana Danielle MacDowell; children: America Belle (2.5 years old), Wyatt Lee (6 years old) and Kaiden Ross (10 years old), all of Peachtree City; sister: Jennifer Ross of Fayetteville.
A Celebration of Life will be held in honor of Jason Christopher Ross on November 18, 2021 at Go Church, 3935 GA-34 E, Sharpsburg, GA 30277. Friends may visit the family at 5 p.m. and the service will begin at 6 p.m. Visitation Assistance can be provided to the family at: Go Fund Me and Meal Train.

Jenn Collins says
My dearest Breezer, my heart aches for you and the kids alongside the rest of your family. Only meeting Jason one time that being the day you said ‘I Do’ holds a wonderful memory that’s true to my heart. Such a wonderful man, husband and father quickly ran my thoughts that short time I was with yall. You had finally found Mr Right! Just remember, in spirit, he is always there smiling that goofy smile he always kept on his face. I love you to the moon and back. Stay positive, my dearest longest friend. Much Love & Hugs!!

You have done a great job with this tribute to Jason.
I am very grateful to have met Jason, played soccer with him for years on multiple teams and becoming good friends with him. We bonded over our love for soccer and would frequently chat after work while I was driving home, or he was driving home. We would share many jokes about teammates who were too frail and would get injured too frequently, crooked referees in our leagues, or just whatever the latest Premiere League scores were. He had a great sense of humor as anyone who knows him can testify. And of course, he loved you and his family dearly. I am blessed to have had Jason as a friend; he was taken away from us too soon.
You and the rest of his family are in my prayers. I am here for you if there is ever anything I can do to help.
Brenda Grimes says
Briana, My heart breaks for you & your precious children. I’m so glad your children have such a strong & loving mom to transition & to keep the sweet memories that you’ll all treasure. My prayers are for peace for your heart. Love you.💜

You will ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED by your brothers and teammates Bo Smith, Ben Daniell, Richard Daniell, Sanu Sowe, Daniel Mc Adams and Carlos Morreira as well as Coaches Chris Mc Dermott, Richonne Clark and Tony Cooper of our AFC LIGHTNING 85 RED TEAM. We had a great team, we all always had a great time together and we all share so many great memories. Jason was a big part of our team both in goal and on the field. Jason had a Cannon shot on goal. None of us will ever forget the goal that Jason scored in the Georgia State Cup in 2003 in which Jason shot on goal straight from the Center Circle Kick off and put the ball right over the United Quest Goalkeeper’s head- nothing but net! What a shot! It was amazing! We all laughed, but not one of us was surprised because we all knew that Jason could easily kick a Soccer Ball 70 yards. I always knew that Jason could score right from any kick off and he proved me right.
Jason’s Character was second to none. He would help anyone he could any chance he got. Any time one of his teammates needed a ride either to practice or to and from a game Jason always volunteered to both pick them up and drive them home. He was a true Ambassador for GOD with all of his good works. To no one’s surprise, Jason went on to serve his country as a Marine. Jason was always a leader, who always lead by example, by doing for others any chance he got.
Jason WILL ALWAYS BE MISSED BUT WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!
Chris Mc Dermott,
Daniel Mc Adams and
ALL Of YOUR AFC LIGHTNING 85 RED FAMILY.
