It is with heavy heart that we announce the passing of Mark Jason Mariano on May 6, 2021 at the age of 40 due to Pancreatic Cancer.
Jason’s greatest joy were his children Mark Jason Jr. (17) and Joaquin (11). He was a loving husband to his dear wife, Mariel. He loved to barbeque and shared his passion for food by cooking for family and close friends. He also loved drinking with his best buddies and driving for roadtrips. A big fan of basketball though his favorite sports was badminton. He was also hooked to Coin Master and Mobile Legends. Aside from steak, he was fond of eating liempo ( pork belly) and talaba (oysters) . He is sweet-toothed too. He is crazy over sansrival cake and M&Ms chocolate!
Jason brought so much light and cheer to the workplace. He was dedicated to his work so much that even if he was feeling ill, he still insisted to fulfill his role as team leader at 24-7 Intouch. He was supportive of his team members and inspired them to become leaders.
Born Sept 8, 1980 to loving parents Jorge Mariano III and Expedita Mariano (Nurse based in the United States), Jason spent beautiful childhood in Malabon, Philippines with siblings Anisa Cabote (based in the United States), Jorge Mariano IV and Miguel Mariano.
Jason went to St James Academy in Malabon for Elementary and High School. In college, he studied first at University of Santo Tomas then continued it in Letran College. He made his Mama proud when he finished his Bachelor of Science, Major in Marketing in 2003.
In 1998, Jason met his wife Mariel through his cousin Alex Marquez, who was Mariel’s bestfriend. Jason was Alex’s driver in the Junior/ Senior Prom. After the prom night, Jason and Mariel started dating. The inseparable Jason and Mariel became sweethearts since their fourth year high school and tied the knot in 2004. The family moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada in 2017.
Jason will be remembered for his genuine kindness. He was compassionate and was always willing to lend a helping hand. Up to his last breathe, cancer did not shatter his faith. His spirit was positive and his heart was full of gratitude. His contagious laughters and crack jokes will be missed!
