William Jason Petruzzi

william petruzzi
Jason was born March 1977 in New Rochelle Hospital, New York. Within days, he was transferred to NY Hospital/Cornell Medical Center ICU for complex cardiac issues which greatly impacted him for the rest of his life.

Despite his profound physical limitations, Jason persevered throughout his childhood. Moving to

Vienna in 1990, he graduated from James Madison HS in 1995, and began working for the Fairfax County Alcohol Safety Action Program in 1996. He later earned a B.A. degree in English from George Mason University in 2006, and an M.A. in Library & Information Studies from Florida State University in 2011. Jason loved books so much that he was writing short-stories and a novel which he had hopes of publishing someday.

To Jason, ASAP was his home and he enjoyed working with colleagues in helping the organization achieve its worthwhile mission. He had just begun his 19th year of service with ASAP at the time of his accident.

On Wednesday, November 19th Jason suffered severe injuries in a single car accident near home, apparently due to an unintended acceleration mechanical issue outside of his control.

Thanks to concerned neighbors, the Police and Fire Departments arrived immediately, and he was rushed to Inova Fairfax Hospital in critical condition. His complex cardiac issues and pulmonary problems complicated his situation. During his week in CCU, Jason's condition took a turn for the worse on Tuesday afternoon. He died peacefully and without pain on Wednesday afternoon, November 26th, at age 37.

Jason is survived by his parents, Roni and Bill Petruzzi, and his two sisters, Megan Petruzzi (Westminster, Colorado) and Kira Oliver (Ashburn, VA).

The family will receive friends on Sunday, November 30th, at Money and King from 3:00 to 5:00 pm, and Monday, December 1st from 10:00 to 11:00 am at Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Vienna, followed by an 11:00 am memorial service. Interment will be at Flint Hill Cemetery following the service.

  6. I had the honor of working with Jason at ASAP, and don’t know where to begin acknowledging he is not coming back. I have nothing but great memories from him. He always had a book attached to his hand and during lunch time seemed as if he transported himself to another world. During work hours he was always willing to assist. He was my to go person when Joe was not in. “Sure, not problem, let me see” was always his reply. Not sure what i would do when my “good morning Jason” will returned empty. Thank you for everything you did at work and the strength you showed me when i would freak out during your nose bleeds. You will always have a place in my heart.

  9. I am so sorry about Jason’s accident. I worked with Jason for two years at ASAP;I relied on him to help me with some of the more difficult cases I couldn’t figure out. I remember my time working with him with great fondness. My heart goes out to his family and friends in this difficult time.

  10. As Jason’s Supervisor for about 9 years, I found his dedication to work, his steadfast dependence, his wealth of knowledge about our program, and his willingness to take on new responsibilities as just a few of his great qualities. He is sadly missed in our office. For me personally, I will miss his smile and his gentle spirit. He was a joy to know. This thought comes to mind from an old Irish saying – “Until we meet again, may God hold (him) in the palm of his hand.” So long dear Jason! Anne Rush
