Jason Jolkowski: Radio Waves for Jason

Jason's mother is starting a new awareness campaign for him.
She has posted a message about it on several message boards, including (

As you all know, my son, Jason, has now been missing without a trace for 5
years and 8 months. There are no leads to follow up on, and we, at this time,
depend on the general public to provide new leads to help us find our son. For
those of you who have a missing loved one, you already know the struggle to find
ways to get the word out, especially as time passes. You know that you must be
creative in order to get the media to react and to be able to reach your target
The purpose of my letter is to inform you of a new campaign which has the
goal of creating awareness for Jason, targeting every radio station in the
country. I am looking to amass a team of volunteers to email each radio station
Jason’s story (already prepared for you) and link to more information, photos,
and a poster. If you are familiar with his story, you know that Jason was once a
D.J. for a local community college. It was something he enjoyed and he became
very popular in the local area. He had some financial setbacks, and had to leave
school and the D.J. internship. We, his immediate family, feel that if he is
still alive, it’s very possible that he is working for a radio station, thus,
our campaign, Radio Waves for Jason. (We will make “waves” in the radio industry
looking for him.)
If you are either a family member with a missing loved one, or one of our
peers in the missing person cause, this email is merely to inform you of our
campaign. You often ask about Jason, so we’re letting you know what we’re doing.
We wouldn’t ask you to become involved as we understand you are very busy with
your work or seeking your own missing loved one. This campaign might even give
you an idea for one of your own, which is another good reason to share it with
If you are a friend, family member, or a friend of Project Jason, and feel
you would have the time and commitment to help, we would be happy to have you
assist. As mentioned earlier, you would be given a prepared statement with links
to email radio stations in a set area. I estimate that it will take 3-5 minutes
to email each radio station. Even if you can only email a few locations, each
effort will help us reach our goal.
If you are interested in volunteering to help, please send an email to us
at radiowavesforjason(at sign) You will then be sent an email
with more details about the campaign and the prepared letter for the radio
*This campaign is suited for persons who are already comfortable
navigating the internet and using copy and paste functions.

Thank you for all you do for our family, Jason, and Project Jason, whether
it’s a simple prayer or more, all efforts are greatly appreciated.
With hope for all of our missing loved ones,
Kelly Jolkowski,
Mother of Missing Jason Jolkowski
President and Founder,
