Jason Jolkowski: Rally article

A few days ago, I had mentioned that Jason Jolkowski was going to be included in the CUE Center's Road to Remember Tour 2007. Here is an article on the rally that was held.
It sounds as if it was successful; now if only Jason and Jesse could be found!

Missing people's stories told at ceremony
Kelly and Jim Jolkowski aren't giving
Wednesday marked six years since they last saw their son, Jason Jolkowski,
then 19, when he left their Benson area home to walk to work.
More than 50 people attended a ceremony Wednesday night at Holy Name
Catholic Church to commemorate the day, which Mayor Mike Fahey declared Omaha
Missing Persons Day.
Project Jason, founded by the Jolkowski family, sponsored the event where
community members prayed and listened to stories from families of missing
"Things are going very good for Project Jason," Kelly Jolkowski said. "We
have had national recognition in many ways.
"Awareness is key."
Jolkowski said her toughest challenge has been living day to day not
knowing what happened to her son.
Through Project Jason however, she is able to show support to other
families of missing people and receive support in return.
The Cue Center, a nonprofit organization based in North Carolina that
provides assistance for families of the missing, included the Omaha event as a
stop on its fourth annual "On the Road to Remember Tour."
Monica Caison, founder of the organization, said it's important for
families of missing persons never to give up, but also to maintain a healthy
lifestyle for themselves.
The tour, which runs through June 21, will cover 2,400 miles, making 22
stops in 11 states and raising awareness for 75 missing person cases.
Don and Donna Ross of Belton, Mo., traveled to the Omaha event to show
support and raise awareness for their missing son, 20-year-old Jesse Ross.
Jesse Ross, who was a sophomore at the University of Missouri-Kansas City,
vanished Nov. 21, 2006, after attending a conference in Chicago. After a dance,
Jesse was seen heading to his hotel room, a 10-minute walk. He never made
"Seven months later we are still hoping for word," Don Ross said. "Thanks
to (Project Jason), Jesse's story has been heard nationwide."

If you know anything about the disappearance of Jason Anthony Jolkowski, please call the Omaha Police Department at (402) 444-5657 or Omaha Crimestoppers at (402) 444-STOP.

Jason is one of the missing people you can "adopt" through Project Jason's Adopt a Missing Person program. For more information, visit
