Jason Michael Burgess
Jason Michael Burgess, aka Bubbalou, 50, passed away on December 31, 2021. Born to parents Jim and Beverly Burgess on May 13, 1971 in Portsmouth, Ohio. God thankfully broke the mold when He made Jason. He gave him so much creativity, artistic talent, wit, intellect, and love. While he struggles in some areas of his life, he excelled in others: art, music, comic relief, and being an amateur veterinarian. He made people laugh-sometimes with him, sometimes at him. He was not ordinary by any means and whether you were a patron of Bubbalou’s Tattoos or a fan of Pour the Coal, once you met him, you likely never forgot. He made people laugh until they cried, had the biggest smile and laugh along with the biggest heart. He treasured family, friends, and his precious dogs, Bullfrog, Chelvis, Chelvira, Lil Bit, Cookie, Coal, and Daisy. He especially adored his mother, Bebsi-Poo.

He is survived by his mother, Beverly Burgess of Portsmouth, OH, one brother, Marty (Michelle) Burgess of Brandon, FL, one sister, Jodi Burgess of Columbus, OH, a daughter, Marissa Burgess, and one granddaughter that he loved so much, Amiyah, of Portsmouth, OH.
