Jason Brian “JT” Turner

Jason Brian “JT” Turner, age 48, of Pelham, passed away unexpectedly Saturday, Feb. 16.

He was raised in Montevallo and graduated from Montevallo High School, class of 1988. From a young age, he served as a volunteer firefighter and worked at Montevallo Auto Repair. JT attended the University of Montevallo and the University of Alabama. He drove a purple Peterbilt 18 wheeler, and his children have fond memories of going on long hauls with him.

After that, he started Jason Turner Construction in 1997, and then became 360 Tower Services, which serviced cell phone towers even though he was afraid of heights. He loved to listen to Merle Haggard and all the country greats while drinking Miller Lite with his PG, Molly.

He was a kind and generous man who loved to spoil his children. His love for others was subtle but full.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Norvin and Shelby “Jean” Turner; and his daughter, Jordan Bailey Turner.

He is survived by his wife of 26 years, Danielle B. Turner; children, Dillon Jace Turner, Lindsey “Sissy” Turner and Lana “Pork Chop” Turner; brother, Kevin Turner (Kristi); sister, Janet Dockery (Scott); uncle, Norris “Uncle Einstein” Turner; aunt, Alpha Stanford; nieces and nephews, Stone and Sam Turner, and Megan and Shelby Dockery; mother-in-law, Frances Baxley and numerous cousins, in-laws and friends.

His funeral service will be held Saturday, Feb. 23 at 2 p.m. at University Baptist Church in Montevallo. The family will receive friends beginning at 12:30 p.m. Bro. Stan Dawson will officiate, and burial will follow at Montevallo City Cemetery.
