JASON EDWARD JOSEPH WALKOW On October 16, 2018, after 48 short years of giving laughter, creativity, and uniqueness to our world, Jay was taken from us and our lives will never be the same. Continuing to hold him in our hearts are his mom Jan, sister and best friend Lori, sisters, Kathryn and Lisa; brothers-in-law, Terry and Andy; nieces, Miya, Tyler and Nyah; aunts, uncles, cousins, valued longtime friends, and his four legged buddy, Paco. He was predeceased by his dad Edward. Jay was born and raised in Winnipeg and was proud to call it his home. He began his professional career with Rivard which paved the way for his own two successful businesses, AfterImage Media Productions and Magnetic Media. Jay was an editing, graphics and video production specialist who excelled at creating digital media products for a variety of companies. The Winnipeg Jets were a great source of pride for Jay and he was one of their greatest fans. In addition to the Jets, Jay had an endless number of interests and hobbies. Music, movies, fishing, camping in remote areas, road trips, grilling, watching sports with friends, organizing football pools and enjoying late night thunderstorms, were amongst his passions. Jay also loved being an online comedy streamer. Through these streams, Jay brought together a special group of people from around the world, who came to be known as the "Convoy". Jay's streams, and the valued friendships he developed through the "Convoy", gave him a tremendous amount of strength and support during his hardest times. The family wishes to extend its deepest gratitude to Dr. J. McElhoes for his compassionate care and support. Thank you to those who, through their prayers and acts of kindness, helped Jay and his family through this difficult year. We are forever grateful. A celebration of Jay's life will take place 2:00 p.m., Friday, October 26, 2018 at Glen Eden Funeral Home, 4477 Main Street, West St. Paul, with Rev. Fr. Gerry Ward officiating. Flowers are gratefully declined. If friends so desire, donations may be made in Jay's memory to the True North Youth Foundation / Hockey Fights Cancer: tnyf.ca/donate or mail - True North Youth Foundation, 345 Graham Ave., Winnipeg, MB R3C 5S6. Jay, over the past year you refused to give up hope and you never stopped fighting, right to the very end. Your strength, determination, and courage were truly remarkable. Rest In Peace, Jay.

  • Learning of Jason’s passing some time after the fact made me reflect on all the laughs and joy which he brought into my life as well as countless others. Jay never ceased to make me laugh and smile when I tuned into his show, it is a tragedy that his creativity and laughter which he brought into this world is over. Jays name and work will live on forever and I wish I had the opportunity to meet him and tell him how much he made me laugh and smile. I hope you are at peace Jason. -Griffin - Posted by: Griffin (Viewer ) on: Nov 05, 2020

  • Almost 2 years since Jay's passing and I'm rewatching Jesus Chatline. Really wish I could've met him and told him how much he and Richard made me laugh. Got me through some tough times. His legacy lives on through all of us. We all miss you Jay. - Posted by: Amy V (Viewer) on: Oct 16, 2020

  • I just learned of Jay's passing a couple days ago and thought I'd mention near the two year anniversary of his death how happy his shows made me. Jesus chat line was comedic gold and Steven's character made the show. Thanks for that laughs and memories Jay. The world will never forget you. - Posted by: Andrew (Viewer) on: Oct 15, 2020

  • He genuinely brought joy and euphoria to me in my darkest times. I watched every one of his projects up until his unfortunate passing. His comedic genius knew no bounds. If there's anyone that I would have loved to meet in person, it's Jay. God bless him and his family. - Posted by: Chase (Viewer) on: Oct 14, 2020

  • I just found your show a few days ago on youtube, I was very confused at first but I couldn't stop laughing.

  • I loved watching Jason perform online when I was a teenager, while the calls were vulgar, his reactions were always so perfect and would always bring me laughs, especially when I felt alone. Jason has passed, but he will always continue to make people laugh. - Posted by: Travis (Fan) on: Sep 07, 2020

  • I stumbled across JCL a couple years ago when I was a teen. Literally some of the funniest stuff on the internet at the time. Nothing will ever come close to taking the spot that JCL has created on my life. Every now and again when I feel sad or depressed, I revisit this program and scream laugh the same way like when I first discovered it. Amazing show supported by an amazing and memorable man. God bless Jay wherever he may be now - Posted by: Pablo (Fan) on: Jul 24, 2020

  • I worked with Jay through our work as Christians, and recall his musical talent. I played the violin to adults and children, as did he. Deep down we all know he is playing the fiddle with kids in heaven right now. - Posted by: James Russtles (Friend / Mentee) on: Jun 16, 2020

  • This man helped shape my humour, my awe, my love. This is one of the most beautiful men I have had the pleasure, and sad displeasure of only knowing from a distance. I wish him and his family and friends well, as well as all the other viewers. His charm, wit and kindness will forever be a part of my life. I hope the family and friends around him continue on his legacy, as well as everyone who watched him. He was truly a pioneer and visionary. Thank you. - Posted by: Harry (viewer) on: Jun 11, 2020

  • Thanks for all the laughs Jay. RIP. - Posted by: Chris (Fan) on: May 09, 2020

  • It’s already nearly been a year and a half...I can’t even begin to tell say how much Jay has influenced my humor and life ever since I discovered him in 2016. Even after all of this time that’s passed, the Convoy has not forgotten Jay. Even now we still send our condolences. A Comedic genius taken too soon. I’m so glad I was able to meet this legend before he passed! I always think about how he never broke in front of the Convoy on camera. I once asked him if he planned on stopping anytime soon, and he told me no! He knew how limited his time was with his friends and family, but he held onto his community until the very end. RIP Jay - Posted by: Declan (Viewer) on: May 07, 2020

  • RIP Jay, you were a true comedic genius and inspiration! God bless you and your family. I hope it brings them some sense of comfort knowing how much happiness you brought into peoples lives. You will never be forgotten! - Posted by: Geoff B (Fan) on: May 05, 2020

  • Cannot express how much you've impacted my life Jay, and made me smile in dark times. We all still think about you daily, and respect you for all the hard work you put into your shows. Thank you for everything my friend. Forever part of the convoy, forever following the Neon Bible. A true comedic genius and hero. Rest in peace my friend. ❤ - Posted by: Kyle ragan (fan) on: May 04, 2020

  • You made me laugh, and you brought alot of joy to alot of people. Goodbye friend - Posted by: Internet Fan (Fan) on: Apr 28, 2020

  • I can't believe it's already been over a year & 1/2 since Jay's passing. I wish I had gotten to thank him for all the entertainment, company, and comfort he provided me over the years. Like most, I first discovered Jay through JCL, then subsequently his Haulin Ass streams. I was a regular viewer for quite some time, but I had stopped attending the shows some months before it ended. A day after he passed I saw on my YouTube feed a tribute video for him, I couldn't believe it. It's a testament to Jay's selflessness that he continued to stream until he physically couldn't anymore, and never once concerned his viewers about his illness. He kept his private life away from his shows, and I think playing the role of T Rucker was a source of comfort just like it was for his viewers. He treated the convoy like family and it was an outlet for all of us to take our minds off of our problems for a few hours a week. He was quick-witted, clever, and one of the funniest people I've ever seen. More importantly, he always came off as a genuinely kindhearted person who was always grateful for everyone that was a part of his show. He is sorely missed. - Posted by: Nick (Viewer) on: Apr 27, 2020

  • Thank you Jason for the laughs, the great energy that you had and shared with all of us your viewers. I will never forget that show and you guys, you won't believe how much you've helped me when times were rough. A french viewer. - Posted by: Tanguy Decouv (Viewer) on: Apr 21, 2020

  • Jay, you and your shows will forever be a part of my childhood, and something that I will look back upon fondly for as long as I live. My deepest condolences to your family and may you rest in peace. We won't forget you. - Posted by: Ben (Fan ) on: Apr 19, 2020

  • I was a big fan of jays work TJCL brought me into many tears of laughter years back when I stumbled across it, it’s honestly surprising to see that jay has passed away. He will always be remembered and will always be online to entertain and make others laugh through hard times. Big Fat F for jay. - Posted by: Andy (Viewer) on: Apr 15, 2020

  • TJCL and T. RUCKER always fun to watch! Jason was a funny guy! - Posted by: KD1138 (viewer) on: Apr 14, 2020

  • I offer my dearest condolences to Jay and those close to him. The Jesus Chatline, where Jay portrayed the character of Steven Chilton, has brought me many hours of joy, and I can imagine that it has done that for many others. - Posted by: James (Fan) on: Apr 12, 2020

  • I'm terribly sorry and saddened to hear about Jason "Steven Chilton" Walkow passing away. I've used to be the German caller on his Jesus Chat Line call in show. I was a regular on that show and "Steven" and "Richard" created something that meant so much than anyone can imagine. It was a dark time of my life where I was without friends, a job and without any perspective. Then I suddenly found the Jesus Chat line and even though it was "just" a comedy program I think I can relate to people who say they have found Jesus and it gave them strength and new hope. I felt the same about the Jesus Chat line call in program. Jason would spread many laughs with his ideas and creativity and I was always excited about a new show. It was the light in dark times. I would become part of a community Jason had created and suddenly I wouldn't feel alone anymore, I felt like I belong somewhere. I suppose it doesn't matter if you join the church or the boyscouts or an internet comedy group, if you find people who think like you and are in a similar situation then there will be a strong bonding. Through his show I've met so many nice people from all over the world. I remember how Jason would set up online movie nights, an event I have never ever been part of afterwards. He would select all kinds of movies, often comedy films, and the community, people from all over the world, would watch those films together and also comment on them via live chat. It really was like watching a movie with your friends just that those were miles away. For this experience, for bringing joy into my life when I needed it the most, for making me find friends, for all the fun conversations we have had, I will forever be grateful to Jason. He truly will be missed and I personally hope that we will find a cure for cancer. A lot of friends and family members sadly passed away and now I have to add another human I really and sincerely liked to this unfortunately list. Rest in peace Jason "Steven Chilton" Walkow. I hope you are russling some jimmies in heaven now, looking down on us and having a good laugh. Don't crunch yourself.

  • Thanks for all the laughs and great times throughout the years. I hope you're sipping an ice cold Dad's Cream soda with Jesus now. Farewell Jason aka Steven and T Rucker we miss you. - Posted by: Chase Sallinen (Jesus Chatline and Haulin ass watcher) on: Jan 29, 2020

  • R.I.P. Steven. You'll be missed. - Posted by: Ash (Viewer) on: Jan 27, 2020

  • RIP Steven. Made me and my friends laugh for years. Only just found out today when I went back to watch some of your old stuff. Absolute legend. - Posted by: Gareth (Viewer) on: Jan 15, 2020

  • Rest in Peace Jay “Steven Chilton”I know this is late, but I just heard about this sad news. I was born in 1970 also,just a few months before Jay. I only recently discovered JCL but it brought me alot of laughs in a time when I really needed it, just like alot of other people. I hope Jay’s family & friends ( especially Dustin “Richard Burnish”)can find comfort in knowing the show accomplished just what it set out to do..it will help people in times of need now & in the future. I’ll be having a Dad’s Old Fashioned Cream Soda while watching reruns. - Posted by: Viewer in Iowa (Fan) on: Jan 03, 2020

  • Only heard about this today, so sad. Such a creative and funny guy, brought joy to others. Rip. - Posted by: Jan (Viewer) on: Jan 02, 2020

  • Like many others, I discovered Jays work on the internet in 2015. He brought joy and laughter into my life while I was struggling to reach it as a college student still finding my way in the world. Real laughs, so hard sometimes that I couldn't breathe or even open my running eyes for up to 60 seconds at times. His work, to me, is better than the vast majority of comedy available on TV or the Internet. Whenever I need a laugh I can search up the Jesus Chatline and rewatch the videos, they never get old. The continuation of comments from fans is proof of Jays genius and the huge impact he left on the world in his short time. I like to think that Jay is out there somewhere in the afterlife still taking calls and brining happiness to those who "get it". Thank you Jay Walkow/Steven Chilton...the world is a slightly less joyful place in your absence. - Posted by: Jack (Viewer) on: Nov 12, 2019

  • Jay, aka Steven as many of us knew you. Thank you so much for the laughs that you provided for me, indeed for many thousands more. You are truly missed and the internet still mourns for you, more than a year on. Fly high and Rest easy brother. Legends are never forgotten. - Posted by: Alex (Fan) on: Oct 21, 2019

  • Thank you Jason "Steven Chilton" Walkow for the amazing shows. It has been over a year since you passed, but you are still remembered and greatly respected in the Jesus Chatline community. My condolences to Jason's family, his friends and his pets. I hope you're trucking and taking calls up there in heaven. Rest in peace. - Posted by: Il (Fan) on: Sep 17, 2019

  • I understand that this is very late but I hope this is still read by anyone in the family in need of comfort when remembering Jay. Jesus Chatline was the first time I ever witnessed Jay and his genius on camera. He is largely responsible for giving me joy ever since years ago because to this day, I still religiously watch the Jesus Chatline reuploads on YouTube. I'm currently 25 and I can assure you that even in my 40s and up, willingly, I will still watch the Jesus Chatline because of the performance Jay gave to his audience and how dedicated, funny, and talented he was alongside Dustin (Richard Burnish). I know it's been a year, as I've already implicated at the beginning, but I would like to offer my condolences and would also like to assure you that although his projects were not as mainstream as they absolutely could have been due to the creativity and comedic gold, Jay is without a doubt a cult classic hero of the internet in my heart but also the communities' heart. He will forever be missed. - Posted by: Rain (Long time fan) on: Aug 23, 2019

  • Thank you Jay for the many hours of joy and entertainment throughout the years. You are forever immortalized in the hearts of many and will be truly missed... I wish your family and friends the best during their time of loss. - Posted by: Aaron (Fan) on: Aug 13, 2019

  • My friend told me about the Jesus Chatline back in summer of 2015 and i fell in love with it. I smiled and laughed for more times then I could even count. You brought me so much joy and happiness. Back in October of 2018 when i found out what had happened I cried for the first time in forever. I was devastated, but I knew that Jay wouldn't want me to be sad he would want me to be happy as could be. Thank you Jay for everything. We all know you are drinking dads cream and eating cherry pie right now. Thank you Jay, we all miss you. - Posted by: Jacob King ((Fan)) on: Aug 04, 2019

  • My life got a lot harder when I graduated high school in 2011. That happened to be the time when Jesus Chatline was at its peak. The follow year, in 2012, I found the broadcasts of Jay's show of Jesus Chatline and could not stop laughing. I rewatch those shows over and over again. The perfection of the entire show is astonishing.. it was definitely its own thing. It stood apart from other broadcasts or videos. I wish the show could have kept going on but it seemed there were issues behind the scene. Jay made a couple new shows such as Rumbled Feathers and Haulin Ass with T Rucker. I didn't spend as much time watching those. Jay was always so kind and funny. If you would have asked me 5 years ago when I thought he'd die I would have said maybe in 50 years. I seriously did not see that coming and it is hard to accept. I guess in some instances the good do die young. I had no idea he was struggling with cancer. I'm a childhood cancer survivor so I can relate. I've shed tears for him but know he would probably rather us smile so I will smile at the memories of him. - Posted by: Devin (Viewer) on: Jun 14, 2019

  • I was speechless when I heard about what happened to Jay. I used to watch Jesus Chatline on YouTube around the time it was still in production back in 2012 - I was an avid fan of talk shows being pranked by "joke callers" so this show was right up my alley. The JCL characters were IMO definitely ahead of their time; there was no other show that had the vibe that JCL had during their production & even afterwards. There's some that have tried to emulate the same vibes that Jesus Chatline had, but it's never the same without both Steven (Jay) and Richard (Dustin). I also watched Jay live when he had his show in 2013 called "Rumbled Feathers" - I always got a great laugh out of that. The commercials for JCL and Rumbled Feathers were hilarious as well. When you watch these shows, and many of Jay's other works, you can tell that there was a lot of effort put into these shows to make them entertaining. So many jokes they had to create, so much work implemented in the art & visuals such as the show's design, the commercials, the intros, the videos where they edit themselves into pictures and/or movies, so many different segments... Just think of the amount of time spent to come up with all of this; all to entertain us. Around the time when Rumbled Feathers ended, I lost track of Jay's whereabouts and figured he stopped making videos, and being that is... I never knew about his cancer situation. If I knew about it sooner, I would've lent my support. Jay was & is a very vibrant soul; I remember watching him in the many episodes that he was in, and I can tell that he enjoyed entertaining us. He may have had to work hard & it may have stressed him out sometimes, but once the show was in session you could see that him and Richard were having fun - it was pretty hard for them to try not to laugh. Seeing what a fun & dedicated soul Jay is, and what a wonderful personality he had & has... it's very depressing to hear that he's no longer with us in the flesh. I pray that Jay will find acceptance into Heaven, and that he will find eternal happiness. When I think of Jay, I also think about the fake funeral episode, and how Richard Burnish & the callers were joking about how Steven (Jay) has "touched" people... This time, I hope that he knows that he actually really has touched the hearts and souls of people both young & old. Rest in Peace Jason Walkow; forever missed, and forever remembered. - Posted by: Malcolm D. (Viewer) on: Jun 01, 2019

  • Jay was always really funny and genuinely cared about people. I’m forever grateful of the memories that we all had together on the live streams from JLC to Soarce to Haulin Ass. - Posted by: Zach (Convoy member ) on: May 21, 2019

  • Been a fan since JCL. Only happen to find Jay via someone commenting his new show on you tube. I saw a few live streams. Always watched the re-uploads on you tube. Always made a tough time turn in to a good one. Many thanks Jay May you rest in Peace! - Posted by: Grizzly (Viewer) on: May 19, 2019

  • Today at work I got to wondering what had happened to Jay and his crazy characters, so on my break - while Googling him - I found out the bad news. His shows helped me laugh and kept me in good spirits during a period of my life where I was very sick. He created a community unlike any other that I have ever belonged. I will always fondly remember him. Condolences to his family and friends. - Posted by: Derrick aka MaximumOverdrive (Fan) on: Apr 18, 2019

  • Jay provided some of the best memories of my later childhood watching his streams, and despite never knowing him in real life, he has left a big impact on me in such a joyful way. I also live in the same city he was from, and knowing he passed so close by to me makes me happy but also breaks my heart a bit. I'll never stop thinking of him when times get tough and I go through my own grieving of my dying loved one. These beautiful memories will never fade away! - Posted by: Cora (Fan) on: Apr 03, 2019

  • A shame to see such a good man go so fast. RIP - Posted by: Richard Burnish (Friend ) on: Mar 25, 2019

  • I began to watching Jay when he use to do the JCL with Richard. I actually began interacting within the shows during Haulin' Ass. I really don't know what to say, but I am genuinely saddened by his passing. He helped created shows that anyone could be a part of no matter who they were. Even in the darkest moments of my life the show always brought a smile to my face. My condolences to friends and family. You will be missed Jay. - Posted by: Lizzy (Fan/Viewer) on: Mar 23, 2019

  • From The Jesus Chatline to Haulin Ass... Jay was the original troll and comedy satire during the internet's infancy. He made us laugh, and will forever be a legend. Rest in Peace Jay. - Posted by: Duke Togo (Long time fan) on: Mar 06, 2019

  • I first came across Jay's streams on YouTube. It was re-uploaded Jesus chatline streams. I loved the man, he made me laugh so hard every single stream I watched. It wasn't for at least a year that I ran across a stream on Twitch called Haulin Ass. I clicked on it intrigued of what the stream was. I quickly recognized that face even after so long being absent from his streams. I realized it was the man who made all my bad days so much better. I called in and when I got on the air I was super nervous and was gonna shout curse words and hang up. Jay quickly made conversation which led to me not doing so and I'm forever grateful I didn't, I would've been banned and hated, but I was 15, I didn't know better. It led on to be a truly great relationship with Jay and Amanda. I loved the man so much that I would donate all the money I had to him as I was forever grateful for his assistance in getting me through rough times. He sent me a mug, a hat, a portrait and a shirt. My Haulin Ass shirt has my class of 2016 signatures on it and I will cherish that shirt my whole life. I was absent from his streams for the better part of another year. When I came back I remembered how much I missed him, and gave more money. The saddest thing is I ordered everything off his website (merch) and was absent from his streams again. After a while I remembered I hadn't received anything I ordered yet and started to look for his channel on Twitch and I couldn't find it. I YouTubed "what happened to t rucker" and I saw "A tribute to t rucker" and clicked it. I cried all night and the next day and the week after that. Knowing the man who I adored so deeply would never be going live again. All I can say is thank you Jay. You never did anything for the money. If someone even donated $10 you were very grateful for it, any other streamer probably would not have even read the note attached to the donation. And that's what made you amazing at what you did. You came home from your job and would spend 1-2 hours with a couple hundred people entertaining us. You fought until the end and I loved you. I will forever cherish your portrait and shirt until I die. You were and still are a massive part of my child and teen years. You influenced me beyond belief and I will never forget that. ❤️ - Posted by: Ben/ Local Cattle Farmer (Viewer/Fan) on: Feb 27, 2019

  • Rest Up and Easy you absolute legend. Appreciate the content you provided. I only watched Haulin' ass and Jesus Chatline (Not too sure if he created more, if he did I'm sure I'll end up watching those.) But what I did watch gave me pure entertainment and laughter for hours on end. Thank you Jason -Steven Chilton- Walkow. Legacy will forever be branded into the internet. Gone but certainly never forgotten. Rest In Peace Legend. - Posted by: KoolAid (Viewer/Fan) on: Feb 18, 2019

  • RIP to an absolute legend. I've seen every episode of JC, HA and the Noon Hour; some more than once. And I laughed all the while. I found out about Jay's passing a few months back, and still find him popping into my thoughts. Like many others, Jay's deft and unique comedic abilities were a crutch I leaned on during nasty parts of my life. And I leaned on them during the good parts, too. Wherever you are now, I'm sure they adore you. - Posted by: Stone (Fan) on: Feb 10, 2019

  • I've been watching Jay's content for a few years and I smile whenever I remember JCL or HA. Those shows gave me hours of entertainment and laughs. I wanted to call into HA, but never got to it. Unfortunately, I'll never receive that opportunity again. I'll miss you, Jay. You were one of the nicest and most entertaining streamers out there. I loved the tight-knit community that you helped create. All of us will remember you. - Posted by: Ellie (Viewer) on: Feb 08, 2019

  • RIP Mr. T. Rucker, you gave me and Callum hours and hours of entertainment and will continue to do so. Jesus Chatline and Haulin Ass were two of the best things ever made for the internet. You are a Legend! Score one for T - Posted by: Rob (Longtime watcher) on: Feb 05, 2019

  • Truly devastated to have discovered the sad news. I discovered Jay through the Jesus chatline and his shows really got me through my difficult times whilst studying at university. As a fan from the UK I also was lucky enough to tune in LIVE occasionally his to Rumbled Feathers show and can easily watch his shows on repeat and laugh everytime. Thank you for the laughs and characters you've brought to us. - Posted by: Adam (Longtime Viewer) on: Jan 23, 2019

  • Jason streamed and did online comedy before it was cool. I never knew him as anything other than "Richard" but had many laughs with him. What a shame, gone too soon - He will remain the absolute GOAT. RIP Jason. - Posted by: Nick (Viewer) on: Jan 21, 2019

  • Discovered Jay back in 2011 when he did The Jesus Chatline. He really made me laugh and brought a lot of joy to my life when I wasn't feeling happy. Just learned of His passing when I was googling him and Dustin to see what they have been up too. My condolences to his family. RIP JAY - Posted by: Nicholas Gambella (Fan) on: Jan 17, 2019

  • I have been watching Jay's old comedy skits and they really do bring me joy. It's sad to see that he has passed away but I would just like to thank him for all of the laughs he gave me. Thanks Jay!!!! - Posted by: John Fanning (Viewer) on: Jan 10, 2019

  • I found Jesus Chatline around 2016 and little later found T Rucker. I remember being anxious about calling to his show since English is not my main language but when I finally did it, Jay was so nice and kind to me. When I told him I'm from Finland he right away asked if I've heard of Patrik Laine. Turns out we both had a huge admiration on him. That eased my anxiousness and I did call him again several times later on. I was so devasted when i found out that he passed away. Honestly had no idea he was so ill. Thank you Jay for being so kind and making me feel confident. Maybe one day somewhere we get to talk about Laine again. Rest in peace. - Posted by: Harri Pylväläinen (Fan) on: Jan 09, 2019

  • I initially found Jay's comedy through the Jesus Chatline several years ago, as I'm sure many well-wishers did. To this day, it remains one of my very favourite pieces of internet media. Its originality, its subtlety and its tongue-in-cheek professionalism coupled with a laid-back attitude and obvious love for the popularity of the production will permanently stand it out as one of the funniest things ever made for the online world. Though I may not have known Jay personally, it's easy for me to say that he was a pioneer, and he'll be remembered by thousands. Rest in Peace; T, Steven and Jay. - Posted by: George (Fan) on: Jan 05, 2019

  • I remember me and my best friend watching his internet shows and constantly quoting him back in high school. Sad to see he passed away. He brought good times to me. Wish I could have met him. - Posted by: JP (Fan) on: Jan 02, 2019

  • I loved watching his internet shows, really brought me and others many laughs and joy. Rest in peace. - Posted by: Daniel (Viewer) on: Jan 01, 2019

  • This is beyond sad. I was in email correspondence with this dude over the summer. I don't think he ever let the audience know he was sick...really sad and messed up. I hope his widow and family are coping the best they can, and that this dude is in a peaceful place. The man gave me strength and laughter when I had nothing left in me and helped me cope with bladder cancer myself. Love you Jay. - Posted by: Travis Pankiw (Fan) on: Dec 28, 2018

  • It was only by happenstance that I learned this news. I've been a fan of Jay's for only a few years, and his shows did a lot for my anxiety. After a long and gruelling 12 hour shift, I would often find one of his archived streams and put it on to laugh and relax to. Just today I thought I would do just that, only to find out that he's been taken from us. I never thought the death of a person I've never met would affect me like this, but here we all are, remembering a man who brought smiles to the faces of hundreds, maybe even thousands. Thanks for the laughs, man. I'll miss you. - Posted by: Nathan Samuel (Fan) on: Dec 27, 2018

  • I dont know how to say this, but I have been watching this guy since 2011 ... 8 years and he always makes me laugh , even when Im sad or having problems in my life, I go watch JCL and sometimes I fell asleep watching JCL , I dont know what to say, really guys but life is a scary place . I hope Ill meet you in heaven. - Posted by: Sari (viewer on jesuschatline 2011) on: Dec 09, 2018

  • Jay was one of the funniest people. I have seen on his streams, such as Jesus Chatline and T Rucker. He made a lot of people laugh including myself, may his legacy will go on and he will be dearly missed. But his legacy of his t rucker streams and Jesus Chatline will forever immortalized him, we lost a very entertaining and yet good person this year. May he rest in peace. - Posted by: Jo (viewer) on: Dec 08, 2018

  • Jay was nothing short of a comedic genius and deserves to kick back some dad's cream and pie in heaven. - Posted by: Landon Senters (Longtime fan) on: Dec 06, 2018

  • I just found out that Jay passed away today and it truly hits home. Jay and Dustin got me through some tough times and I really loved their content. I still to this day watch Jesus Chatline and it makes me laugh so hard. A true streaming and comedy legend. Rest in peace, man, I hope you're enjoying Dad's Cream in the heavens. - Posted by: Nathan (Fan) on: Dec 06, 2018

  • Jokes aside, Mr. Walkow made me and my friends roll with laughter for years. His shows were, quite frankly, brilliant in concept and execution. A genius taken too soon. Rest peacefully Jason, you've earned your spot in Valhalla. - Posted by: Leroy Sinclair (Friend from Norway House) on: Dec 06, 2018

  • A legend of the internet. It hurts my heart to hear he passed. - Posted by: Ross Thomas (Viewer) on: Nov 27, 2018

  • Jay, you've made me and others laugh for many years, you've always been a fantastic human being, on your internet shows and off the air in private conversations. You've made me feel better when times were tough and your spirit and your humanity shines through you, even beyond the grave. I called your show back in September and unknowingly shared my final memories with you, I can't believe life can be this cruel to a man with such a heart of gold. Although I never met you Tee, Steven, Carl, Jay, you won't be forgotten. We will remember the great memories you gave all of these years to the convoy. Forever in our hearts <3 And may you rest in peace. - Posted by: Elliott Clark (Longtime viewer) on: Nov 23, 2018

  • This was such a great show. The comedy from it, made me laugh, and enjoy what there really was. Happiness, this show basically gave me happiness even when I was sad. This show was amazing with it's host Steven & Richard. Once they split, Rumbled Feathers was my favorite, then T Rucker was. I still remember their fishing streams. - Posted by: Ben (Viewer) on: Nov 22, 2018

  • I remember back in early 2013 when I found out about his and (Richards) online act with a couple friends of mine. To this day I still listen to his comedic shows that made everybody laugh. I passed by a tribute video thinking it was one of his old videos about the fake funeral, but it turns out it was real. I have been hit hard emotionally as well as my friends. We love you, Jay. From me, Josh, Yahya and Brandon. - Posted by: James Kingston (Fan) on: Nov 21, 2018

  • I was gutted to hear of Jay's passing. His internet streams brought me a lot of laughter during a difficult time in my life. I resonated with his sense of humor and I am very thankful that I was able to watch those. - Posted by: Joe (Stream watcher) on: Nov 11, 2018

  • I loved Jason’s programs of Haulin’ Ass and Jesus Chatline. He was a founder of stream trolling with the Jesus Chatline with his character of Steven Chilton. Chilton was a much better character than that poser Jonathon Hills from the Buddhism Hotline, played by Eric Pape. I remember once on the Jesus Chatline they pretended that Steven Chilton died. Now he has actually passed on. I know you’re in the Neon Bible’s version of heaven, Jason. You will be missed. F - Posted by: AJ Stolling (Viewer) on: Nov 10, 2018

  • Jay was a true comedic genius. He's laughing on the other side. - Posted by: Connar (Fan ) on: Nov 05, 2018

  • I remember first coming across Jesus Chatline in 2015. I have watched almost every show they had and I’ve watches some of Haulin Ass live. R.I.P. One of the originators of stream trolling... - Posted by: Brendan (Fan) on: Nov 04, 2018

  • Jay was friendly and wanted everyone to get along and could make everyone laugh with his carefree and on-the-spot humor. His comedy streams and creativity were gold and inspired so many people, whether comically, or just to do something creative with their technical skills. Don't know what life will be without you buddy. Rest in peace J. - Posted by: Roman G (Friend) on: Nov 01, 2018

  • Thanks for all the laughs. Truly a comedic genius of our time that I wish more people got to see. He made me and my friends laugh for years. What a legend. Thank you Steven/Carl/Tee and Jay. - Posted by: Demetrius (Caller) on: Oct 27, 2018

  • I first stumbled across Jesus Chatline sometime in 2017 and was instantly enamored with it, and still am. My love and appreciation for JC led me to Haulin' Ass and I really enjoyed several of their streams as well. Last year as a late birthday gift to me, my friend Beth agreed to call in and say, "You look pretty gay for a trucker." Ah fun times. I'm truly grateful having witnessed some of his streams and having been able to interact with him a little bit via the stream chat and via Beth kinda. Jay was hilarious and a pleasant person as far as I could tell. RIP - Posted by: Kole Popp (Fan) on: Oct 25, 2018

  • I've never met him in person, nor did he know who I am, but his shows, like the Jesus Chatline has brought me a lot of entertainment and laughter, the memories of me laughing hysterically to the Jesus Chatline the first time I found it. I decided to go back and watch some episodes again for nostalgic purposes, and I had stumbled upon a tribute. It was heartbreaking to watch, but I'll always look back on those times when Jay could bring me laughter and joy when I wasn't feeling so well. Rest in peace, Jason. You were a legend - Posted by: Filippos (Viewer) on: Oct 24, 2018

  • Jay's show has helped me through rough times in my life. Whenever I feel sad, down, I just have to tune in to him to find laughter, relief and hide away the pain. It hurt me to hear about his passing. My deepest condolence to his family. Jay, you are a brave man, you brought us laughter eventhough you yourself are in pain. You will forever be missed, pastor, trucker, and a friend. - Posted by: Tran Hung (Viewer/Fan) on: Oct 23, 2018

  • I became a fan of Jays in 2012 after discovering his internet show. I thought it was incredible. It then blew my mind to find out he was from Winnipeg. Love the old and new shows. I’m not sure what Amanda’s real name is but my deepest condolences. - Posted by: Jeffery Gobeil (Fan) on: Oct 22, 2018

  • When I heard of Jason's passing, I wasn't sure how to feel. I thought it was a joke again. I remember watching Jesus chatline back in 2012 and watching everything from that point on. I miss him. It's like an old friend has gone. Jason wasn't a web show host. He was a welcome guest in my home. - Posted by: Drew Craig (Fan) on: Oct 22, 2018

  • I stumbled across Jay's show online one night during a rough point in my life. Laughter echoed through my home like none other with some of the calls that came through on the show. Jay brought happiness and laughter to many folks, and I'm glad I could be one of them. Nonetheless, I wanted to take the time and express that you will be greatly missed, and the family has my deepest condolences. I'll see you on the other side my friend. - Posted by: Kyle Elam (Viewer - Long Time Fan) on: Oct 22, 2018

  • My deepest condolences to the entire Walkow family, and to Jay’s circle of friends...this is a heavy loss for us all. I will carry with me memories of Jay’s quick wit, his wonderful sense of humour, and most importantly his gentle nature. After any time spent with Jay, I always felt better, happier...there was never a shortage of laughs. Thank you for being my friend, Jay...you left us way too soon. You will be missed, but never forgotten.... Until we meet again, I remain, Your friend, Ry - Posted by: Ryan Fischer (Friend) on: Oct 20, 2018
