    • Eulogy: Read by Jenny Rush and Adam Rush - : Jason- in one sentence. A man of family values. Now if Jason was writing this eulogy, he would keep it to this. But he isn't, and he is well aware that his family likes to talk?.. A LOT, so I think he knows what's ahead.
      Let me take you back in time to one of the most exciting days of my teenage years.
      Its 9.26 pm on Monday the 28?sup?th?/sup? of May 1984. My mother walks into the waiting room of the Lady Goodwin Hospital and announces that I have a baby nephew, his name is Jason Phillop. After swiftly counting all of his fingers and toes, in the usual frantic first time aunty way, I have the fondest memory. I remember holding this little baby boy in my arms, kissing him on the forehead, just staring in amazement. I remember thinking just how perfect he was, and how lucky my big sister was to be blessed with his arrival.
      Jason and Christine stayed in the hospital for what seemed like an eternity. I couldn't wait to have them home with us. I have a memory of wishing for this in fact. Sure enough a few days later my wish was granted??. But not in a conventional way, as one would expect. My family and I were at one of dads junk collection auctions as they came to be known. The next thing we knew a car was arriving in the parking lot?? sure enough this was Christine with baby Jason. In a true demonstration of Christine's determined independence, she had checked herself out of hospital and caught a taxi to us.
      We then gathered the whole family, which now included another edition (and possibly the cutest) and proceeded to K Mart to buy Jason his stroller. What for? Well, it was for his very first big day out?? the Callaghan Park Races. The following day, dad announces that we would go and do a bit of fishing. To which we all obliged. This outing which he called 'a bit of fishing' turned out to be a six week long fishing expedition, which was very interesting with a new born let me tell you.
      Jason made the local newspapers when he was three years old. The headline was no surprise to any of the family 'Miracle Baby'. This was most certainly not an understatement. Jason fell over the balcony of a three story building, and merely sustained a broken arm, much to the amazement of emergency personnel.
      By the time Jason was 5 Christine had married Allan, the man who became Jason's father. Jason often said that he couldn't wish for a better father, in his words 'my only dad'. He was so grateful that Allan was such an influential part of his life. This influence was so evident to all around Jason. The comparisons between Jason and Allan were plentiful.
      Jason had a big heart, one he not only extended to his family, but the greater public in general. He held such regard for the value of human life. If there was someone in this world that was worse off than Jason and he knew about it, he tried his hardest to make it better. If the times were tough, we could all rely on Jason, one phone call and he was there, doing all he could, regardless of any dispute. In fact he often went above and beyond the call of duty, that's the man he was.
      He went above and beyond the call of duty, wanting to be noticed and appreciated. If he was asked to pop a nail into the wall, he would first re-build the wall, paint it and then nail it. All you asked for was a nail, but thanks to Jason, you got a new wall, freshly painted and then the nail you asked for.
      Jason was heavily involved in numerous fundraising efforts; one of these was the Leukaemia foundation. The year was 1999; Jason aged 15, his brother Scott 17. The dual settings of the story are Sapphire and Mt Larcom, two tiny towns in central Queensland. Jason and Scott were fundraising for months, Jason once again doing his best for those less fortunate.
      He shaved his head, on behalf of the leukaemia foundation. This is nothing unusual for one wanting to help, but what is unusual is the extent to which he helped. Jason and Scott raised so much money for the foundation, and more importantly for those in need, that they won the regional finals. Scott then nominated Jason to continue to the Queensland finals, as only one could go. Jason won second prize for the most funds raised in Queensland. The boys raised these funds in tiny rural townships with a population of no more than 3000. This is an amazing achievement, and a true testament to Jason's character and dedication.
      2008 saw the passing of Jason's nanna. Jason often said that this was the saddest day in his life. The saddest day in his life, occurred in what turned out to be what Jason would describe as the happiest year in his life. The reason for this is clear to all. This was the year that Jason met Kym, the woman he constantly referred to as his greatest love.
      Jason and Kym met in 2008, whilst they were both working for Jason's uncle, his uncle Roger. Jason and Kym's true and very deep love was prevalent to all around. They had an instant connection from the day they met, a connection which never fizzled. Jason was so certain that Kym was the person that he would spend the rest of his life with, that he expressed his desire to marry Kym to his mum at a Christmas BBQ in 2009. His mum was obviously delighted at the news.
      It was not until the 9?sup?th?/sup? of July 2010 however that Jason built up the courage to officially propose to Kym, and she accepted. The great love that they shared was soon to be even greater, an official union of Jason and Kim.
      Jason and Kim found out the most exciting possible news in the winter of 2010, they were to expect a child. Jason, with his abundant values of family, was so proud that he was about to become a father. He was about to start his own family, which he would have described as the biggest achievement of his life.
      Jason was a family oriented man with a heart as big as they come, a man of integrity and compassion. His life was full?.. full of family, full of friends and full of love, thanks to the one true love of his life Kym.
      His life was tragically cut short, but those here today can be rest assured that he packed as much into his short life as one possibly could. He ensured that he surrounded himself with positive and energetic people, people that he loved and people that loved him in return. You are these people. You have been there both for and with him throughout his life and he would feel so honoured, so blessed that you are here doing the same after his death.
      Thank you for your attendance here today. I thank you on behalf of Jason, his loving fianc? Kym, his soon to be baby girl Ayesha, his mother Christine, his father Allan and all of his family.
      I will now conclude with an infamous quote from the man of the hour himself, short and sweet, straight to the point, just as he was. I think in this circumstance, he would like to have said, with a great pause before it of course, In true Jason style??. 'Harden up princess'. [2]
