Jason Jolkowski is a missing person from Omaha, Nebraska and has been missing since June 13, 2001. Jason was 19 when he was last seen in his Benson neighborhood. He was going to work to cover a shift at Fazoli’s restaurant and was to meet his ride at Benson High School, because his car was in the shop. Kelly, Jason’s mother said her son did a few chores and got ready for work. His brother and a neighbor saw him leave the house but he never made it to the school. Jason walked a few blocks to the school around 10 a.m. in his work uniform. When his ride showed up, Jason was not there. A video from the school does not show Jason at the school. Witnesses saw Jason walking towards the school.
Less than an hour later, his boss called and spoke with Michael, Jason’s brother and complained that Jason had not shown up for work and had never arrived at the high school to meet his ride.
Further investigation showed that he had about $60 on him at the time and he didn’t take money out of his savings account, nor took any clothing or personal items with him.
Jason’s mother, Kelly Jolkowski convinced Nebraska lawmakers to pass Jason’s Law, a measure that created a state repository of information on missing persons. Jolkowski also decided to start Project Jason to assist the families of missing adults and children.
