Mr. Jason Tomoyasu


I was saddened to learn of the passing of Mr. Jason Tomoyasu (2/16/1952 – 10/2/2014) who was one of my Boy Scout Masters at Troop 75/Team 75 in Pearl City, Hawaii where I attained my Eagle Scout rank in December of 1992 while I was attending the University of Hawaii at Manoa.  His leadership style was very positive and I remember him as always smiling.  As an EMT, he saved many lives and as a soccer coach and Scoutmaster he left a lasting imprint on many of us.  My thoughts are with his wife Mrs. Tomoyasu who I had the pleasure of working with when I was a politician and she represented the teachers in Hawaii, son Cory Tomoyasu who I served with in Boy Scouts Team 75, daughter Tara Tomoyasu, and entire family.  I was very touched by the service at the Mililani Mortuary Mauka Chapel on the evening of 11/7/2014.  I especially liked the Japanese poem placed in the pamphlet by his Goddaughter Bobbie who he helped to save her mother’s life some years ago and she became his Goddaughter the next day:

On a journey, ill

my dream goes wandering

over withered fields.
