Jason Ray: Always Remembered
Posted Sep 21, 2017
Ten years ago, inside Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey, Charlotte and Emmitt Ray said goodbye. On March 23, 2007, their son Jason – a 21-year-old senior at UNC who spent three years performing as the Tar Heels' mascot, Rameses, at sporting events – was hit by a car on the side of Route 4 in Fort Lee. Ten years later, Jason continues to be remembered.
