Jason Wayne Dugger, 41, passed away unexpectedly on Sept. 9, 2014 in Dallas, Texas, after complications from an outpatient surgery.
Jason is survived by his wife Lauren Jones Dugger; beloved children Evan Michael Dugger and Ryan Kirks Dugger; grandmother June Joan Dugger; mother Patsy Alvarez Breckenridge; step-father Richard Breckenridge; father Wayne Alan Dugger; brother Tyler Breckenridge; sisters Savannah Breckenridge, Lindy Dugger Behling and Sarah Dugger Lyons; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Higinio and Lourdes Alvarez and his paternal grandfather, Wayne Anderson Dugger.
Jason was born on Aug. 19, 1973 in Corpus Christi. He graduated from The University of Texas at Austin where he worked at The Daily Texan and interned at the Austin American Statesman. He earned a bachelor of journalism in 1996, worked at the San Antonio Express News and then joined the sports department at The Dallas Morning News in 1999. Highly respected by his colleagues, he became the design editor of the sports section before leaving the paper in 2008 to begin a career in marketing, sales and graphic design. After working at e-Data, Inc. and Kaba, Inc., Jason joined M-Files, Inc. in February 2014 as Core Marketing Manager.
A life-long Spurs fan, Jason also loved to golf, play guitar, and travel. Those hobbies took a backseat after his children were born. His latest favorite pastime was playing Star Wars with his boys and his childhood action figures. The boys adored their father, and Evan and Ryan were the joy of Jason’s life, his proudest accomplishments.
Visitation will be held from 4-6 pm Sept. 13, 2014 in the Brooks Family Chapel of the North Dallas Funeral Home, 2710 Valley View Lane, Farmers Branch, Texas 75234. The Memorial Service will be at 3 pm on Sept. 14, 2014 at Lovers Lane Methodist Church, 9200 Inwood Rd., Dallas.
