Jason was born in Denville N.J., lived in Vernon and graduated Vernon H.S in 1993. He attended Lincoln Technical School majoring in Heating and Air Conditioning. Once H.V.A.C. Certified he worked in the Vernon area before moving to Orlando Florida with his life long friend Alan Puzio. (Jason always hated the cold!) In Orlando he started a successful contracting / remodeling business specializing in Kitchens and Baths in and around the Orlando area. His design skills, craftsmanship, work ethics and attention to details earned him a reputation as one of the best craftsmen in the area. He took pride in making sure the customer was always happy with the finished job and will often work weekends and nights to complete a job on time as promised.
Jason when not working enjoyed being outside, camping, fishing, skeet shooting, quiet time at the beach and playing his guitar with Alan and friends in their band “Maryanns Jacket.” He especially looked forward to his yearly meet up to relax, ride his Harley and camp with his close friends during “Daytona Bike Week”. (You all were and are valued friends of Jason and Teresa. Thank You). Jason passed on his love of Harleys to his son Chase. He loved riding together with him by his side. Sharing the road, his friends, the culture and traditions with his son gave him great joy, pride and the biggest smile.
Jason is survived by his parents Anne Marie and Anthony Guarino, his son Chase Guarino, his wife Teresa Garrigan, brother Lee Guarino, sister in-law Carita Guarino, nephew Townsend Guarino, Uncle Glen and Aunt Marie Guarino, Aunt Deborah Guarino, Aunt Sharon and Uncle James Pendorf and Aunt Adriane Guarino (deceased).
