Jason was born on Aug. 4, 1973, in Schuyler, to Paul and Deanna (Dubsky) Pokorny. He attended school in Howells where he went to St. Peter and Paul Catholic grade school and graduated from Howells High. Jason loved trucking and farming. He was a hard worker but always took time to play. For the last five years, Jason and his partner Linda lived north of Schuyler where every spare moment was spent on a project such as cleaning up, fixing up or building new. Their latest venture was their herd of Aberdeen Angus. When he did have some spare time, he was always willing to help a friend or family member and also enjoyed camping and spending time with family. Jason was a great story teller and his stories will be missed by many.

Jason is survived by his partner, Linda Koci of Schuyler; parents, Paul and Deanna Pokorny of Linwood; step children: Paige Koci and friend Chris Cook of Norfolk, and Darin Koci of Monroe; siblings: Rachel (husband, Jeff) Wisnieski of David City, Kevin (wife, Jody) Pokorny of Omaha, Heather (husband, John) Caldwell of Omaha, Sarah (husband, Scott) Svatora of Columbus, Megan (husband, Kit) Mackie of River Forest, Illinois, Katie (husband, Aaron) Hinkle of Omaha; and nieces and nephews: Ben, Sam and Claire Wisnieski, Elizabeth, Jackson and Charlie Svatora, Madeline and Ava Caldwell, Jadyn Pokorny, Quinn, Shea, Thomas and Max Mackie.
