Jason was his father’s son.  He loved his mother, Margaret, but always said she played no role in his formation.  That’s what Jason needed to believe.  Jason explained to me, before I met his parents, that his mom had married a Laotian man, a guy he believed she felt nothing for, nothing except a need for his money.  Jason had calculated the marriage occurred about the same time as the child support payments were supposed to stop.  It wasn’t genius, just pure practicality.
