Jason was born on January 19, 1974, to Dennis and Judy (Kershaw) Fried. He graduated from Century High School and attended Bismarck State College. Currently, he worked for Farmer’s Union Insurance Company as an insurance adjuster. He was also the owner of Bismarck Prop Works and had expanded this business to include Bismarck Welding and Dakota Trailers after his dad retired.
On October 24, 2014, Jason and Lynn were married in a small service in Las Vegas, Nevada, after he surprised Lynn by flying her oldest daughter into town, an engagement ring and asking her to marry him the evening before.
Jason was an avid car, motorcycle and boating enthusiast. You could often find him cruising around in various sports cars, riding around on his Harley, or relaxing on the river in his boat and speed never really was a concern for him. As a businessman, Jason loved to wheel and deal.
Jason will be deeply missed and is survived by his wife, Lynn; daughters, Whitney Lindbo and Kylee Lindbo; stepchildren, Josie Christiansen, Cody Gartner, Callie Gartner and Emma Gartner; his parents, Dennis and Judy Fried; sister, Beth, and her husband, Trey Hubley; niece, Megan Hubley; nephew, Grant Hubley; brother-in-law, Kevin Harris, and wife, Stephanie; father-in-law, G. Ronald Harris, and wife, Kathleen; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Jason was greeted in Heaven by his grandparents, Dalbert and Aune Kershaw and William and Tillie Fried; mother-in-law, Rita Harris; and several aunts and uncles.
Our family would like to extend our appreciation to the wonderful ER and ICU nurses and doctors at CHI St. Alexius for the wonderful care and great compassion they gave so freely to Jason and our family during his stay there.
