Jason Sebastian Cady

July 2, 1969 – December 6, 2021

 “Jason is the most interesting person whom I know. Period.”

“He marches to the beat of a different drummer.”


Extremely curious and very intelligent.  Multi-talented and multi-faceted.

Hyperactive and lazy.   Empathetic and kind.

Persnickety.  Misunderstood.  Difficult.  Rigid.  Hard to know.

And sorely missed.


Jason Sebastian Cady was born on July 2, 1969 in Fort Collins, CO to Maurice and Clarice Cady.


Throughout his childhood, Jason preferred to take apart machinery, toys, and computers to see how and why they worked.  Then he put them back together again. He was intrigued by cooking and baking.  He observed and quickly learned how to create culinary delights at a young age and continued to do so throughout his life.


Music always was a love.  He frequently would be humming a tune and quick to harmonize with someone who was humming or singing.  He sang in several choirs with his favorite being acapella.  He read music and played piano and organ by ear.


Jason valued education and pursued degrees and certifications throughout his life.  At CSU, he studied computer science, chemistry, business consulting and management, education, and statistics.  However, he graduated with a B.S. in Psychology.  In 1995, Jason moved to Seattle to start a new job.  While working in Seattle, Jason earned multiple software and technical certifications.


Jason’s empathy and kindness often took the form of helping people and causes with technology.  When he moved to Seattle, he started a software job at Microsoft, but he gained more satisfaction maintaining the IT system for Casey Family Programs, which helped children and families. From there he worked for the City of Seattle for almost 20 years.   He performed a variety of computer services—security, planning, strategy, and IT coordination.


Jason was preceded in death by his grandparents Clarence & Johanna Wynia and Clayton & Everine Cady, and his stepfather Albert Hockett.  Jason is survived by his mother Clarice Cady and his father Maurice Cady (Evelyn), his sister Susan Curtis (Matthew Kirby), his nephew Jeffrey Curtis and niece Michelle Jorissen (Kyle), a large extended family, and a host of friends.
