Thoughts from friends, loved ones and others

Over the past three years I have reflected a lot upon Jason’s life. I graduated with Jason. I remember the first time Jason and I met, English class sophomore year. I entered a level 3 english class. As I grew up in Manchester not a lot of my peers I grew up with joined me in level 3 classes. The first day of that class I recall sitting there looking around and not seeing and recognizable faces. I felt a sense of apprehension as a result of not knowing anyone. When everyone filled in the seats around me after the bell rang Jason sat beside me, Jason was the first and only classmate of mine to lean over and introduce himself with a smile and demeanor that could comfort anyone. My apprehension of participating in that class was eased as I knew I had a friend at that point. From there on out Jason and I just clicked. I never thought over the next three years of our high school career I would have such a close friend. The memories in and out of high school will never be forgotten.

  I have visited Jason’s page multiple times over the past three years but this is the first time I have composed my thoughts into a message to you. Jason really touched me in a great way. Reflecting on that I realize that Jason taught me a valuable lesson. Do not judge someone based on where they came from or where they grew up. To my surprise two kids from “opposite sides of the tracks” turned out to be pretty good friends in the end.

  My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. All the memories I have with Jason are nothing but the best. He was always the life of the party, any time I  would go home early to get some sleep Jason would always say “….c’mon man you can sleep when you die! This stuff only happens once just hang out!” Jason without a doubt lived by that. Always the first one jumping into something always the last one awake trying to get everyone else awake to keep enjoying the night. Goodnight Jason, see you when I get there.

You and your family are in my thoughts

I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking about your family and Jason. Every year, October 9 is a very hard day for all of us, especially for you and your family. I love and miss Jason so much, it is still hard for me to believe he is gone. I hope you are all doing well. It has been a while since I have seen you last. Take care and say hi to Laura! I hope to hear from you soon.

Sincerely,

Heather Quigley

Dr. Goldner, My heart broke when you told me about your son. I cannot imagine the grief you and your family are feeling. I have been praying for you and will continue to do so for healing and comfort for your family. It is hard to understand why God allows these things to happen, but I do know He will use your message and speaking at schools to make a life changing difference in many lives. God Bless you all. Kathryn Luther, Matthew 11:28-30

When I could not get pregnant, I came to you. You are the best doctor I have ever seen. It took 5 years, but you helped me. I finally got pregnant with my daughter, Sarah. You called me yourself to let me know the news. I still have the picture of you and her when she was first born with the clock behind you and she. This year, my son, Stephan, who was delivered by Dr. Cervenka, is a senior at West. Though he is legally blind, he did drive at one time. He lost his sight to Leber’s Hereditary Optic Neuropathy six months after he obtained his license. He told me of your speech today at West and gave me the hand out. I still remember the first question you alwayas asked me at my physicals: “Do you wear your seatbelt?”. I cannot imagine the horror of losing my son or daughter the way you did. I plan on passing out Jason’s website to my friends and family. You are an inspiration to everyone. I know that I could not do what you did speak before an audience if that happened to my son or daughter. Thank you so much for sharing your story. And thank you for giving me the gift you gave me– my daughter, Sarah who, along with Stephan, is the light of my life. Maureen Barrett (aka Coppez)

Dear Wayne, I am a patient, we spoke during the snowstorm on Weds. Thank you for sharing this heartfelt essay on Jason’s tragedy. I will be sure to show it to my daughter who was a school mate of Jason’s and is a heavy drinker. I know she drives while drinking. She is a constant worry. I just hope she lives to overcome it. Thank you for sharing your feelings on this webpage. Sincerely, Mary Ellen McCarron

I exceeded the limit last time so, I will keep this one concise. One of the earliest memories of Jason is the time he took a knife to his front tire thinking it would not pop because it was Kevlar, and then he had to walk his bike back to my house. Everytime we went to the gym we pushed eachother to lift more weight and give 110%. I still to this day see him teaching me new techniques whenever I do what he taught me. We once made the plan of moving to the bahamas and opening a restaraunt/scuba operation, and can only now wish that was going to happen. He was one of my best friends and I will never forget him.

Dear Mr. Goldner; I am deeply touched by your story and your grief. It brings tears to my eyes as I have a son who just got his license one week ago! This subject is my greatest fear! I commend you for the courage of sharing your story and I will be sharing it with my children also. I did not get the opportunity to meet you but I am an Assistant at Dr. Katz office. I wish you and your family the best in this great time of sorrow. I hope this story saves lives!!! Sincerely, Dawn

I am so very, very sorry for your unspeakable pain and loss. My daughter, Brittney Sapere, attends Roger Williams and loves your son very much. She sent me a copy of the letter you wrote and I just wanted to say thank you for writing it. Jason’s death has had a profound impact on Brittney and she has openly admitted to driving while intoxicated in the past, but swears that now, she will never do so again. She called me crying and asked me to forward the letter on to other parents I know who have kids. I will be more than happy to do that and will also post it in the pediatricians waiting room where I work. I hope this is ok. I think your letter has the power to make many, many parents and teens stop, think and communicate about the dangers of drinking and driving. My prayers have been and will continue to be with you and your family.

Dr. Goldner and Family: Thank you for sharing your story about Jason. In 1980, I lost a wonderful 22-year-old friend under very similar circumstances. Dr. Goldner, I am not surprised that you chose to help others, even throughout your own tragedy, because that is what you do by nature as a physician in our community. I hope your efforts have brought and will continue to bring you and your family comfort through your grief. With many fond regards, MaryJane Hill Shelman

My deepest sympathy to you and your family. I have an 18 year old son and will share this with him. I remember being 18 myself and feeling invincible. Thank you for reaching out and trying to help others with this touching and personal website. As a parent, this is my biggest fear .Thankyou for looking beyond your sorrow and grief and reaching out to others. God bless you and I will remember you in my prayers daily.

Dr. Goldner & Family: My prayers go out to you and everybody who knew Jason. I was fortunate enough to live next door to Jason my freshman year of college at Roger Williams. I can certainly say there was never a dull moment in Cedar Hall when Jason was around. His smile could light up an entire room and he always seemed to keep everybody laughing. Jason was by far one of my closest friends at RWU. Not only was he funny and outgoing, but he had a heart bigger than anybody I know. Sadly, after freshman year I left RWU and transferred to a school in NY. Although I left RWU, I never left the memories I had with Jason behind. In fact, Jason was one of the few people I kept in touch with after I left. Although time will never fully heal our broken hearts, hopefully the countless memories we all have of Jason will help us get through each day and remind us of how blessed we are to have known him.

Wow…I cannot believe it has been 2 years already. I just want to say Jason that we miss you so much here at RWU and wish you could be here with us man. It’s not the same without you. Don’t worry though, tonight we are all getting together and these drinks are for you man. Love you bro, Miles

Wayne and family, I was thinking about Jason and missing his big beautiful smile. I pray and think about your family often and hope your days are getting less painful as you remember what a wonderful young man Jason was and all the great memories he gave us all. I hope the friends of Jason remember to arrange a ride before they start partying because it needs to become a mindset that they should plan ahead. Once the drinking starts they just don’t always make smart decisions.

Dr. Goldner, My 17 year old daughter & I were in to see you today and you gave me “Jason’s” website. I am now in tears and just got off the phone with my 16 year old twin boys to share Jason’s story. God Bless you & your family. Pamela Vesey

I can’t even begin to express how sorry I am for your loss. As the parent of a much younger child I often day dream of what life for my eight year old will be like in five, ten, or fifteen years. Something like this is what my nightmares are made of. I have shared Jasons story with my son and can tell that it has effected him profoundly. You have provided a tool that can be used to prevent the same tragedy from happening again. I have a feeling that this will stick with him for the rest of life… and I can’t thank you enough.

Wayne and Laura: what a touching tribute to Jason’s life and a selfless act of love, to share as you have, with the hope of keeping others from experiencing the heartache that you have. May Jason’s story reach out far and wide and have a powerful impact on our children’s choices. Blessings, Anna

I am sorry to hear of your loss. It takes great courage to honor your son and shine upon him a beacon of strength to prevent further tragedy. My husband is a high school baseball coach. I will forward this to the parents and students of new drivers. May Jason’s spirit make a difference for other youngsters. I will hug my sons tighter tonight. Thank you for making a difference. God bless.

Good morning, Dr. Goldner. My thoughts and prayers will always be with you and your family. I will certainly share this with my colleagues here at school and, with your permission, share this with our student body this upcoming spring prior to our Prom. No parent should have to suffer what you and your wife have suffered. With hope, your story will dissuade at least one student from making an irreversable mistake.

Dr. Goldner, You are a brave & honest man. I wonder, if I was in your shoes, would I keep my child’s drinking problem a “secret”? Especially if it was the death of him. What a sad and tragic end to your son’s young life. I will forward your message to my best friend who just told me that her 15 yo child recently got drunk at a friends house. She will be getting her license soon…. Thank you and your family for this important message. May Jason rest in peace.

Dr. Goldner: It took great courage and strength for you to share Jason’s life story. It is up to those of us who have received this webpage to have the courage to pass it on. Please know that I will respectfully do so. Upon reading your quotes… I hope you don’t mind if I share another that has long resonated with me: “Are we human beings having a ‘spiritual’ experience or are we ‘spiritual’ beings having a human experience?” I wish you continued strength and courage.

With the anniversary of your son’s death approaching; I am sure your hearts relive the tremendous pain. I pray that God will grant you peace and that Jason will serve as an angel to champion the cause of ending drunk driving. Now 33, I lost two friends in high school to drunk driving. Nothing can compare to the immeasureable pain of losing someone so young to a preventable evil.

Jason was one of my best guy friends in high school. Even during our first year of college he came to visit me. Ever since this horrible tragedy, I have made a point in my life to NEVER drink and drive and to not allow my friends at school to, not matter what the cost. It is not fair to anyone to have to deal with the loss of a friend and unfortunately, it had to take one of my best friends lives to get me to realize the devestating effects that our choices could lead to. May you rest in peace jason, i will never stop thinking about you and i thank you for blessing my life with your presence. I will go on everyday trying to prevent what has become the worst experience of my life thus far. i love you.

Every death is unique, as every child is. My heart goes out to all of you. I am so sorry. My children at home are still very young, however, I hope to make your son’s story an important lesson for my children as well as forward your story onto friends who have children who drive or will soon be.

After spending four years of high school together, I got to know Jason very well… he always had a comment about everything and when around him you just couldn’t help but be laughing. Jason was always full of fun and life and he had plans of becoming something greater than he already was. Not a day goes by without me thinking of him… my sincere condolences go out to his family and anyone who knew Jason. Rest In Peace Goldner <3

Dr. Goldner & Family, What a beautiful tribute to a young man who obviously touched alot of people in his too-short life. I’m sure there are many parents, myself included, who know in their hearts that this kind of tragedy could easily have come into their own lives in exactly the same way it came into yours. I am certain your story will save lives. God bless you for sharing it.

Wayne, Laura, & Family, I can not express the sorrow I feel for your loss. I also, as a parent with young adults the same age as Jason (Shea – as you may remember from his & Jason’s days at McKelvie & football- and Damian) know how hard it is to express my concern for their “activities”. I feel that, though they say they won’t drink & drive, they just don’t seem to understand that there is more than just themselves involved. I am going to forward this web page onto each of them and hope that it’ll be surreal enough for them to put a familiar face to a familiar conversation that we’ve had at home. Thank you for sharing something that is so heart-wrentching to be reminded of – let alone speak about to others. God Bless you, Michele Alati

I was deeply moved when I read Jason’s Web Page. Terrible to say, but, of course, we do have the same problem in Germany. It takes great strength to give such detailed information on such a desastrous, very personal experience. If it reaches the young people it is intended to reach, if it makes them feel and accept their responsability not only for themselves, but also towards those that care for them, you will have achieved something great. In your pain, we are at your side. Your European friend, Justus

Wayne, Thank you for sharing your story. My heart breaks everytime I hear of a young person’s life cut short. As a parent who has lost a child (22 year old daugther Michelle, 11/10/05) I feel your pain. Thank you for being so honest. I hear about Jason from Laura and he sounded like he was a hoot! Please take care of yourself. Peace and Hugs.

Thank you for your efforts to help other children. I will gladly share his story with my own. May your memories keep his spirit alive!!!

Dr. Goldner & family, There are no words here on this earth that I could say to express my sorrow for the loss of your son, Jason. I can’t begin to imagine your pain and heartache. I admire your strength in creating Jason’s Web Page and I thank you for sharing your son’s story. My 18 year old son is attending Plymouth State University and I am forwarding Jason’s story to him. You are in my thoughts and prayers always. Karen McNamara

Have just read JASON’S PAGE which was forwarded to me by my nephew and wife, George and Marilyn Goedecke. What a tragedy!! I can relate — partially — to your dismay and terrible grief — but only to a minor degree. I have a grandchild now serving 10 yrs. in prison for DUI. She hit a man, injured him, and consequently ended up in a State prison. After reading your message, I can only be thankful for her survival. My deepest sympathy to all your family. I hope this message will be heard “round the world” as it is one of our most serious problems

My sincere sympathy. One of RWU’s own. No one should have to go through what you have endured. I work with the Health and Wellness Educators at Roger Williams University -a group of about 11 students that do alcohol and drug education on campus. May we share your family’s story with other students? And, if you would ever like to come down and speak to them yourself please let me know as we would be more then willing to do the program planning and get students there.
