On March 20, 1990, the world said hello to Jason Ryan Hommes.
Jason, son of Lesa and J.D. Hommes, has a
brother, John, a sister, Jocelyn, and a dog, Pepper. He also has
roughly 20 farm cats, “give or take,” he says.
Jason has participated in a multitude of in- and out-of-school activities over the years. In school, he participated in band and jazz band for four years, quiz bowl for three years, track for two years, and journalism for one year.
Outside of school, Jason attends First Reformed Church for Sunday school and RCYF and is an active member of the praise team. He refereed youth soccer for two years at the T10-T14 level. He is the “Taps” player for the American Legion and the VFW. He enjoys attending and working at Teens Encounter Christ (TEC), a weekend retreat for youth. He is currently on the TEC Council, which is a group of adult and student representatives that oversee and manage the weekend events.
Jason has kept busy his senior year, and his classes reflect his work ethic. He is taking band, calculus, government, grammar, physics, single survival, Spanish IV, P.E., and Journalism I and II.
If Jason could spend a day with anyone, living or dead, he would spend it with his favorite author, J.R.R. Tolkien, the writer of his favorite trilogy of books, The Lord of the Rings, which just so happens to be his favorite movie trilogy.
After school, Jason hops into his car, turns up his favorite music, country or Christian, and goes home or to his job at the local Pizza Ranch, where he works as a closer and shift-manager. When he’s home he enjoys watching his favorite TV show Baseball Tonight.
Jason loves band, in which he is the current first-chair trumpet for both regular band and Jazz Band I. His favorite colors are both red and blue– he can never decide which one he likes better. His favorite foods are pizza and chili crispitos.
In the future, Jason plans to attend a four-year college to pursue a career in meteorology. He sees himself with a good job and a family, just being the best he can possibly be.
Jason can’t decide on a specific high school moment as his favorite, but he says the whole Spanish Trip to Cancún, Mexico was one of the best experiences of his life.
Jason has achieved the high honor role throughout high school. His senior class voted him “Most Organized.”
Jason’s advice to underclassmen is powerful: “Don’t ever give up; do all that you can! Now is your chance to prepare for college. Work hard to get good grades because you can’t change the past!”
