About Jason Ohm

Since 2005 the local community and fellow friends have come together with one goal in mind; preserving the memory of Jason Ohm.  Jason Ohm was a young man who lost a two year battle with cancer on March 11, 2005.

Jason and his Family moved to Roseburg from Portland in 1986.  He attended school at Fullerton IV, Fremont Jr. High, and graduated from Roseburg High School in 1995.  Jason had a very special personality and a knack for dealing with people.  He always worked hard and put 110% in everything he was involved with.  He would never settle.  He was always looking for a challenge and way to defeat the challenge.  At an early age he knew he wanted to pursue a career as a Firefighter/Paramedic, and use those valuable people skills he was known for.  While attending Umpqua Community College, he became a scholarship student with Sutherlin Fire Department.  A scholarship student entails most of the same responsibilities of a career Firefighter and more, such as; intense training, carrying as many as twenty credit hours per term.  Students are also required to work ten 24 hour shifts a month and five 12 hour night shifts at the Calapooia fire station to pay for a place to live.  Needless to say there is not a lot of extra time for a part time job.

September 1st, 1998, all the hard work and effort paid off.  He fulfilled one of his lifelong goals by being hired at Fire District No.2 as a Firefighter/Paramedic.  At Fire District No. 2, Jason was thought by many, to be one of the most promising young Firefighters/Paramedics to come through the department. He continued to work hard and provide the greatest care to the patients he encountered.  After four years with the District he decided he needed a change of scenery and went to work for Springfield Fire Department.  Again, Jason easily adapted to the new department and excelled at his job.  While working at Springfield, Jason fulfilled another goal by completing his Bachelor of Arts degree in business management at Northwest Christian College, graduating in 2003.   

At the age of 25 he had already accomplished a lot for his young age, and touched many lives en-route. Just as the opportunities in his career were taking off, he met the biggest challenge of his life “Cancer".  Jason had many surgeries and treatments to try to remove the cancer; however it proved to be too aggressive. He eventually lost the battle March 11, 2005.

Jason’s life was very special and he made a lot of friends along the way.  He was very dedicated to his family, friends, and his career.

Jason is no longer here to enrich our lives; however we still want him to inspire people the way he inspired us.

Community Cancer Center

In honor of Jason Ohm, and his dear friend, partner in firefighting, and mentor, Tom Weiss, we will be donating funds from the 2015 Run for Ohm to the Tom Weiss Memorial Fund.  Tom passed away this year from a tragic mid-air collision.  Tom played a big role in inspiring Jason to become a firefighter and also taking Jason on a flight just weeks before Jason passed away.  The RFO will also continue to provide firefighter scholarships through Umpqua Community College.  The RFO will also use a portion of profits to continue to support The Community Cancer center and their wonderful services. 

The Community Cancer Center has been operating for over 30 years and provides an array of services to Douglas County residents.  As a private, non-profit,community-owned and operated facility, with no government funding, the Community Cancer Center runs solely for the benefit of the community. 

The Community Cancer Centers objective is to ensure that patients receiving cancer treatment have minimal disruption of their everyday lives.  They offer patients a variety of in-house services designed to accommodate their particular needs.  In addition to the radiation treatment services, they house three private medical oncology (chemotherapy) practices, a laboratory, nutritional, psychological, and social counseling as well as other cancer-related services.  The Community Cancer Center was the first radiation therapy facility in the State of Oregon to receive accreditation from the American College of Radiology.  This accreditation is only awarded to organizations that meet their very high criteria for quality of care and safety and have an on-site inspection by a team of radiation oncologists and medical physicists. Their reports are then reviewed by a panel of experts who can make a recommendation for accreditation. The Community Cancer Center first underwent this review in March 2005, and continues to be reaccredited every three years.

The Run for Ohm committee and Cascade Community Credit Union are excited that Jason Ohm’s name will continue to leave its mark on Douglas County and benefit cancer patients in his home town.
