How did Jason Crowther of iprintcanvas pass away? I see a lot of people are raising money for his family but no one will say how he passed or what the money will be used for.
Rather than saying what the money will be used for P***Sn*** states "We will provide details of how your donation was used to bless Jasonís family and children." It seems strange many photographers are being so persistent about asking for donations without telling what the money will be used for and they will not say how he passed when asked. I've never seen so many prosperous businesses ask for money to be given to a businessman that has passed but be so vague.

I have seen that its up to his family to say which sounds like it must be embarrassing to the family? I don't understand myself why everyone is being vague. I doubt anyone would feel any different or donate less if they knew. It just looks odd to ignore everyone's question asking what happened...
I'm sure the money will go to his wife to help support her and the boys or maybe also for funeral costs. It's always nice to help out a family in need and a reminder to count our blessings.

If it was any of your business you would know. If your offended my people asking for money to help a woman and her three children who just lost their husband and father then don't donate. But I think every one else would appreciate you keeping your comments to yourself.

Yes how did he die? I don't think anyone WOULDN'T donate to the family either way, in fact id probably give more, those kids are gonna need more help if they find out there awesome daddy had some control over his demise, well as much as anyone has if they have gotten to that point .But you can't expect people to just give money for something with no explanation. There are too many scams out there appealing to folks kindness .
If this is the case keeping it secret is not helping future great guys who feel they about to loose it, Not loose it and follow suit. I'm not heartless I would just like to help future families benefit from this poor families horrific experience

It is up to the family if they don't want to say anything. He did take his own life. I don't know why or what lead up to it. I can understand that people can see that there are scams out there but knowing how he died doesn't change weather its a scam or if people will donate more or less. It is too bad that there are scams out there and this is not one of them. I know Jason and worked with him on a daily basis and went to his funeral...its real and I wish it wasn't. I think about him every day. I hope this helps all those with questions. I believe once you know how he died then people want to ask why and I don't think they have any answers for that. I think that's why its quiet and its to hard to deal with.

Oh and the money will be given to his wife and children so that they can use it to live until she can get a job. There is no life insurance.

Jason I'm really sorry for your pain as it shows through your hostility. I know you are hurting but your response only raised more red flags. Why would you be so angry when people only asked what happened? No one made any comments. No one was offended by your asking of people's money but if you step back, I hope you can see how asking of others help/money then having such hostility gives a negative persona on the situation. If you are really wanting help for his children and kids, please try not to lash out to the people you have asked for help from. Your response is an example of why so many had questions. I've not seen other display their hurt in anger toward the givers, but I've seen tons of questions and no answers.

"If it was any of your business you would know." I promise I don't mean to be ugly but think about who publicized his death by asking for money? That is how we know all over the country+. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with asking for help, but money is very hard to come by for some of us! We live off little money for 6 of us. We do not put emphasis on material items and money and don't have a lot. We give to others everything we can even when we don't have our own bills paid because we love other and want to help. However, I wanted to make sure that the money donated would go to a legit need.

People were concerned whether to donate as the vagueness made people question why so many would request money but then be hush. I was considering donating until I started seeing so many vague responses. How he passed is a tragedy no matter what! When many ask others to donate to a business man but then don't state what the money is for or how it will be used makes me question if I should donate. It was not just a nosy question and I hope you can see why red flags might be raised.

There are way too many scams out there! Not that his death was a scam and I don't need details; however, I did feel like I needed to know if for example he had done some horrible crime and his wife was in on it and the money was going for attorney fees. We typically give food, clothes needed, etc and not money and this is why so many are questioning. We are to give and help others, but I also believe we've been given a brain to help in a productive way. We did not know he had no insurance nor did we know his wife didn't have a job. I think others would appreciate you understanding why we had questions before you responded hastily. Praying for you, the friends, and family.

Jess, I'm so sorry for your loss! I can tell you are heartbroken. Thank you for your information. My intentions wasn't to be nosy as I didn't know Jason. It's always heartbreaking when someone passes but I didn't know him so the how he died didn't matter except that I was considering donating until I saw so many vague responses. You can read my previous post about why I had so many questions. Money is tight for us and we try to be wise on how we donate money.

To the outside world (or atleast many I've heard)it appeared he was a business man and now friends were asking for money. Many times business men can have wealth so to ask for money for someone might appeared wealth from the outside looking in seemed odd. On the other hand, if there was a true need (which it seems there is) we wanted to help. To me, I just wanted to know that my donation went to a sincere need. Thank you for your kindness and understanding! When someone you love passes, it's sometimes to understand. You, other friends, & family are in our prayers!

I totally agree with the ' guest comment".
Money is hard to come by and what was so perplexing to was that after reading his obituary...what happened?
The ht that he had commited a crime or anything like that, never my mind.
I read his awesome obituary written by his wife, with no talk of Anything Negitive, followed by wonderful comments about him
And then BOOM!!
HEs had an accident.
I had a cousin die as well at 40, he had a headache , found out it was a brain tummor and in one month he was dead.
He didnt have life insurance either.
But unless you tell people that everyone assumes you do.
After my cousin died i got life insurance, lots.
But i am in my 40s and wouldnt have if i hadnt had had this happen.
Please donot assume we all knew jason we just know what weve read.
Can you understand?

Thanks guest. I came across this site looking for his address so I could send something to his wife without asking her, I didn't want to bother her.
He really was a good man and did all that his wife talked about in his obituary. His wife is amazing. I'm sure she is having a tough time dealing with it all. I just hope with the donations that will ease some of her burdens.

Thanks to everyone who can and has donated I know its appreciated.
To be honest I've never donated to people with afflictions/trials before because I don't personally know them and thru this experience and the generosity of strangers I have been changed. So for you guest, thanks for being willing to give something or thinking of it, to a family you don't even know...that's awesome.
