Jason Jolkowski

Jason Jolkowski disappeared ten years ago yesterday from Omaha, Nebraska. His disappearance is one of those seemingly inexplicable ones that leave you wondering whether he got taken by aliens or something. He was nineteen years old and an ordinary enough young man, living with his parents, working in a restaurant. There’s no mention of drugs or anything. He was just gone. If he is alive, Jason will turn thirty years old on the 24th.

His mom, Kelly, has managed to create a great deal of good in the aftermath of her son’s disappearance. I believe it was her activism that got the Nebraska state missing person database online, and she also founded Project Jason, a nonprofit dedicated to spreading awareness of missing people and helping their families. I’ve referred quite a few people to Project Jason.

    You have to wonder how he could have disappeared, could he potentially have fallen into a manhole or something?

    If it was mid morning one would have to assume their were people around so that it couldn’t have been a hit and run where they take the body too, etc. Only other explaination is that he either accepted a ride with a stranger OR with someone he knew.
