10 years later, UNC mascot Jason Ray's memory kept alive through organ donation


Sunday will mark 10 years since University of North Carolina mascot and Concord native Jason Ray died after he was hit by a vehicle in New Jersey. "You've still got that big chunk in your stomach when you think about it," mother Charlotte Ray said. Jason was in New Jersey to perform as the Tar Heels’ mascot, Rameses, in the NCAA Men’s NCAA Tournament. (WSOCTV.com)
