With great sorrow, we announce the loss of Jason Lee McCarty, age 46, of New Braunfels on T hu r s d a y, Oct. 26, 2023. Jason passed away from the effects of systemic scleroderma which he had bravely fought for the past two years.

He then worked in sales for Texdoor in San Antonio for the next 23 years.
Jason loved being with his family and friends, fishing, hunting, the Texas coast, the DaNada Ranch, the deer camp, and sports.
He was so very proud of his sons’ accomplishments and was the captain of their fishing boat for FAN and Canyon High School teams.
