Jason Ray's legacy lives on as an inspiration to organ donors


It's been 10 years since Emmitt and Charlotte Ray lost their son, but not a day has passed without honoring his legacy. "Jason was a good guy,” Emmitt Ray said. “He had a big heart. No pun intended. He was just a good kid.” Ray, a Concord native, was the UNC-Chapel Hill mascot Ramses, but most importantly, he was an organ donor. (WSOC)
