Captain Jason Eric Farley was three weeks short of his 20th anniversary with the Claremore Fire Department when his station received a call to assist members of the community out of a housing addition that had been flooded. Captain Farley was swept into a storm drain and drowned before members of his team were able to rescue him.
Jason was a loving husband, father, son, and brother. He was married to his wife, Shelli, for 22 years and leaves behind a 16-year-old daughter, Hannah. He was an active member of the communities where he lived and worked. Jason lived life to its fullest and never missed an opportunity to travel and participate in any and all types of games and sports. Jason was larger than life, and his brothers at the fire department will always remember him as the king of practical jokes, especially pranks involving water.
To the community he served, to his friends, and to his family, Jason will always be remembered as a hero.
