Jason Anthony Aguilar was born on January 3, 1984 and passed away too soon on Saturday, September 15, 2018. He was preceded in death by his father, Joseph Bernard Aguilar; his mother, Mary Anne Brink; his grandparents: John Joseph Brink Sr., Rosemary Thompson Brink, Joseph Bazile Aguilar, and Frances Lupo Aguilar; and his aunt, Justine Aguilar Krohn. He leaves behind his loving wife, Christina Koch Aguilar; their two young sons, Joseph Anthony Aguilar and Jacob Ryan Aguilar; his brother, Darryl Joseph Aguilar (Jennifer); an uncle, John Joseph Brink Jr. (Sally); and three aunts: Edna Catherine Vest (Art), Rosemary Schellhaas (Ronald Burzelleri) and Jean Marie Quave. He is also survived by a host of in-laws, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends-all who loved him dearly.
Jason graduated from Nicholls University in 2006 and had worked for Cargill for the past 8 years. He enjoyed watching the many sunrises and sunsets while working along the Mississippi River. He loved all things New Orleans and rode in the Krewe of Okeanos for many years alongside his uncle. Jason was the “King of Mardi Gras”. He found his Queen in 2010 and the love he and his wife shared is indescribable. Together they rarely missed a parade, catching most of them twice, and in 2016 they started a Krewe of their own. He was a great father, an amazing husband, and a true family man. Family was his priority and Jason considered all friends as family. Jason was the life of the party. It didn’t matter to him if it was a birthday, holiday, Saints game, or a random Monday night. He always made sure everyone around him was having a good time and was well fed. For those that have had the pleasure of knowing him, always cherish the memories, and Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler.
