    I was there and saw the accident and aftermath my heart goes out to the family of the victim… I had to head to the hospital after because I am pregnant and was feeling ill after the shock of what I saw, just find the asian lady who caused the accident to find out she had vicodin in her system which she wasn’t to be driving under the effect! Breaks my heart to find out that thanks to that someone lost their life and a family a loved one; his cell phone kept ringing in his pocket and that hunts me to this day; someone was waiting for this person at home! :( may he rest in peace…

    It really annoyed me to hear a lady say that the motorcyclist was at fault and then went on about how they always come out of no where and always riding fast, in the first place he was on a cruiser not a street bike it wasn’t like he was really speeding I saw the arrow light turn green on his favor and then the car come out of nowhere the lady didn’t even hit her brakes and smashes into the car in front of her lane waiting for their light. She was the one at fault she looked to be in her late 50′s early 60′s asian and she looked under medicated and the cop even said that she had drugs in her blood test results. It wasn’t his fault my father checked for his pulse and said he looked to be in his 40′s so it wasn’t a reckless young guy on a street bike kind of situation…

    His family is from Benton, Illinois. I am not sure who all still lives there but his mother’s name is Dixie. Jason was a classmate of mine for a while at Sesser-Valier elementary school. He graduated in the class of 1990 possibly from Benton Illinois. He was a very nice person with beautiful blue eyes. I am very saddened to hear of this tragedy and my thoughts and prayers go to his family members.

    I am devastated at this tragic loss of Jason Sinroll. He was an amazing human being, kind, giving and he would help anyone in need. Please come forward those that witnessed the accident. I truly hope that the driver of the vehicle is prosecuted for a wrongful death. There are no words to discribe how hurt and lost we without him. RIP

  • Hello

    Hi family and friends of Jason M Sinroll,
    I’m truly very sorry. I wish everyone well, and I’m sure he was an amazing person. We went to his memorial site of the accident area again to pay respect. He is still so young!!!
    Does anyone know what the updates are on this?

  • Rebecca Bird, a loving ex

    Jason and I broke up in 2009, after dating for a couple of years. I found this posting completely by chance. Jason was such a safe rider that the accident and his death are a complete shock to me. I loved Jason so deeply and so very very much. His love for me was intoxicating. He was one of the great loves of my life and I will never forget him.
    His life was taken way too soon. I offer my deepest sympathy to his family, his girlfriend, and his friends.

    Jason Sinroll, I will alway love you. RIP

  • Tiffany Wayda

    Jason lived with me in Illinois and moved back to California in 2006. I have not seen him for awhile, but have many good memories of the diving trips, motorcycle trip, and the trips visiting his family. I have known Jason a long time and still can’t believe this happened. My thoughts and prayers are with all of his friends and family; girlfriend, mom, dad, and brother.

  • Denny Whaley

    Jason was a good friend growing up here in Benton. We had some great times. Although I havent spoken to Jason in years I feel a terrible sense of lost. Anyone who knew Jason knows the world os a lesser place without him. God Bless you bro, you will be missed, but not forgoten.

  • witness

    Somebody needs to stand up and do something about this, the lady got away like nothing… and all because she knew the officer in charge?

  • vitz

    I met Jason at UA in Fayetteville many years ago, we lived together with a roommate on Leverett Ave. Spent many days riding out on the country side, winters and summers down on Jupiter Island and many great weekends at his fathers place in Eureka and a fantastic trip home to meet his sweet mother, Dixie.
    He owned a business shortly after graduation, his love of course of tropical fish. I knew this man well when we were younger, he had a passion for life, love, family, and his friends. I am deeply saddened finding this news today, although he passed several years ago and we hadn’t seen each other since our college years…I’ll never forget his cool smile as he reached to light his smoke or his laugh as he jumped out of his jacked up, black Nissan truck encouraging his dog Trixie to follow. Thanks for all of the memories, Jason. R.I.P
