Jason Scott Yates, age 52, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, April 9, 2021 at Fauquier Hospital in Warrenton, Virginia.
He was born on January 28, 1969, in Manassas, Virginia, to Carl and Lorraine Yates. He grew up in Manassas, attended Stonewall Jackson High School and graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in 1987. Jason studied Civil Engineering at Virginia Tech and graduated in 1991. It was shortly thereafter he began his career with WDP & Associates (formerly KCI Technologies) in Manassas, where he has worked his entire career as a Professional Engineer. On June 4, 1994, he married the love of his life, Joy, and together they raised 3 boys, his 3 arrows. He couldn’t have been prouder of his family.
Jason was a devoted husband and father, a dedicated leader in the scouting community, a proud member of the Hokie Nation, a passionate history buff, a true craftsman, an outdoorsman, a pioneer in outdoor cooking, and friend to all.
Jason is survived by his parents, Carl and Lorraine Yates; loving wife Joy Yates; three sons: Jacob Yates and wife Amber, Adam Yates and girlfriend Melissa Butman; and Andrew Yates; two brothers: Cary Yates and wife Betty Lou; and Derek Yates. Also surviving are his beloved nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, cousins, and extended family and friends, including his dear friends and coworkers at WDP & Associates and his family with Boy Scout Troop 1187.
