Jason A. Foster

Jason A. Foster, 17, of Riverside Drive, Ipswich, died Thursday August 6, 2009 in a rollover auto accident on Rt. 1 in Revere, MA. One of his best friends also lost her life in this tragic accident.

Jason was born in Beverly  October 26, 1991, son of Charles ‘Chuck’ Foster of Gloucester and Michelle Herrera Foster of Ipswich. Jason was attending Ipswich High School, to enter his senior year this coming fall. He was a good student, with skills in math and creative writing as well as music and art. His contributions in high school included percussion ensemble, performance of his marimba composition, stage crew work as a ‘techie’ with the drama club, and drummer for the Pine Island music ensemble. He worked at Ipswich Natural Foods. Jason enjoyed learning Spanish, which he used when he visited his roots in Argentina 3 years ago.  He also enjoyed traveling in the Southwest.

Jason loved the self-development that he gained with the Art of Living youth programs. His sense of humor, lightness, hugs, peace, companionship, and passion for art and music will be greatly missed.

He will be remembered for his gentle soul, his loving and fun nature, talent and passion for abstract photography, and music composition. He surrounded himself with loving creative friends. He was uniquely self-assured in his non-conforming artist way, and self-motivated to express his creative talents. He shared his art and art commentary on his website www.plutonicfluf.deviantart.com/gallery .

In addition to his parents he is survived by his loving  grandmothers Gladys Foster of Melrose,  Blanca Herrera of Warwick, RI, and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.

A memorial service will be held Monday August 10 at 7 PM at the Ascension Memorial Church, 31 County Street, Ipswich. A pot-luck reception with group music will follow in the Boone Hall.

Arrangements under the direction of the Whittier-Porter Funeral Home of Ipswich.

Memorial contributions in his name may be made to the Art of Living Foundation (memo field: Youth Programs), c/o Michelle Foster, P.O. Box 304, Ipswich, MA 01938.
