Bio: Jason Scott Donaldson was born in Houston, Texas to parents Gregory and JaDene Donaldson.

Jason was a loving husband to his wife of fourteen years, Jamie, and a great dad to son Anthony, daughter Hailee, and son Mason. He loved to travel and spent time making great memories with his family whether it was fishing, snow skiing or just hanging out. Jason was known for his sarcastic, funny and witty sense of humor. You never knew when he was playing you or giving you a straight answer. One of his 'other sons' said that he was always making fun of him, giving him advice or telling one of his many hilarious stories. Logan Lucas said Jason always made him feel as if he was one of his own children. He was the sweetest guy with a contagious smile and had the most hilarious personality.

Jason graduated from Bastrop High School in 1994 and tried his hand at several different career choices, but always fell back to his one true love -- law enforcement. He loved his job at the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Department and was well known as the person to go to for answers and advice. Jason held an Advanced Jailers License and worked for eleven years in about every aspect of the jail from dispatch, to maintenance to transport sergeant and taught Basic County Corrections course. Sheriff Lane often said 'that we shared many laughs, mostly at his expense!' He was honored last year as 'Corrections Supervisor of the Year' for Caldwell County. He is remembered for his years of volunteering with Brown Santa, serving as president of the organization.

Jason was selfless when it came to helping out people in need. During the Bastrop fires in 2011, he and Jamie opened their home to several people who were without a place to stay. At another time, they invited friends and their children to stay in their home while they were looking for a new place to live. He was always there to He was the sweetest guy with a contagious smile and the most hilarious personality. lend a helping hand.

Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: TX   USA   Mon. Aug. 02, 2021
Summary: Sergeant Jason Donaldson died from complications as the result of contracting COVID-19 while working at the Caldwell County Jail.

====================================================================

COVID-19, a flu-like virus, originated in Wuhan, China. Worth a mention, the Chinese Government had a biological research facility in that very province. At this point, it was widely held that COVID-19 was a bat-coronavirus and the first case was discovered in Wuhan in Oct. 2019.

On Dec. 31, 2019, Chinese authorities alerted the World Health Organization of pneumonia cases in Wuhan City, Hubei province, China, with an unknown cause. Jan 7, 2020 Chinese authorities identify a new type of coronavirus (called novel coronavirus or nCoV).

Despite deaths and an entire Chinese Province(Hubei) quarantined by the Chinese Government, the World Health Organization(WHO) simply declares a global public-health emergency. Despite this serious understatement, on January 31st, President Trump bans foreign nationals from entering the US if they were in China within the prior two weeks. Despite a large public outcry of racism, this move likely saved 1000's of American lives, it would later be deemed.

After a full blown global infection, and an entire country being declared on 'Lockdown'(Italy), on March 11th, WHO declared the outbreak a pandemic. This same day, President Trump bans all travel from 26 European countries. On Mar. 13th, a US national emergency is declared over the novel coronavirus outbreak.

On Mar. 23rd, New York City confirms 21,000 cases, making it the biggest epicenter of the outbreak in the US. On Mar. 31, more than 1/3 of humanity is under some form of lockdown. On Apr. 2nd, the world passes one million COVID-19 infections.

On April 7th, roughly 95% of all Americans are under lockdown, as 42 states issue stay-at-home orders. The entire American economy has ground to a halt. Congress passed laws awarding trillions in grants, loans and other types of assistance to the American working population and businesses.
