Jason De Jongh, 63, of Holland, passed away on Sunday, June 30, 2019.

Jason was born in Zeeland on June 25, 1956, to Criston and Gladys (Klynstra) De Jongh. He graduated from Hudsonville High School and did two years of technology training before starting his career at Hope College. Jason later worked at TeleDial/US Signal/Worldcom for a decade and closed out his working career for 15 years as the Operations Manager at Love INC.

They were active members of Christ Memorial Church, where Jason served multiple terms as a deacon and was an active supporter of CMC Missions. Jason was a devoted and loving husband and father. He never took his family for granted and was very intentional, present, and fun in his familial roles. He will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his wife of 33 years, Joni, children: Jeshua De Jongh of Portland, Oregon, Jenna and John Puttrich of Holland; sibings: Jerry and Evie De Jongh, Janet and Rick Van Rhee, Judy and Steve Pawloski, Julius and Jennee De Jongh, Jenny and John Haga; sister-in-law Ruth Klinge and Tom Zenzer, Aunt Lorraine and Maurie Lemmen, Aunt Joyce (Gerry) Klynstra, Aunt Joyce (Jim) Klynstra, and many extended family and friends.
