“I would like to say, specifically though, to my wife, my two daughters Amanda, Frannie and Maple,” he began. “Without you, none of it would be enjoyable, and it probably wouldn’t be possible.”

That’s when Jason started to get emotional. “I love you more than I even tell you I do. I’ll be home for kisses so don’t go to bed and Amanda pop a mint, I’m going to come give you yours in about five minutes,” he joked.
