Jason Dull Obituary

Jason “Jake” E Dull, age 76, was called home to be with our Lord and Savior at 9:20 a.m. on September 3, 2023, after bravely enduring an extended illness.

Jake was born on August 4, 1947 to the late Forest and Helen (King) Dull of Willshire Ohio. He is survived by his faithful and loving wife of 56 years, Rae S (Ernewein) Dull of Celina Ohio.

Five children survive him: Jennifer (Bobby) Brewer of Celina Ohio, Juliet (Chris) Coppler of Decatur Indiana, June (Jason) Arnold of Celina Ohio, Jessica Jaye Archibald of Lima Ohio, and Joelle (Travis) Pond of Celina Ohio. Also surviving are 18 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren as well as two siblings: Ned Dull of Wren Ohio and Carolyn Whitmore of Spencerville Ohio.

In the late 70s and early 80s, Jake was in retail management at Musicland Records. He also managed Casablanca Records in downtown Celina Ohio in the mid-80s. He continued to work in retail management as well as owning and operating Jay’s Lawn Service for many years, before his retirement at the age of 62.  Jake was a firm believer in Jesus Christ and was compelled to spread the word of God to everyone he knew and even those he didn’t. He was a devout fan of The Ohio State Buckeyes, the Cincinnati Bengals, and the Cincinnati Reds. Jake was a lover of music, of the outdoors, and the family pets. In recent years, Jake enjoyed studying the word of God and spending time with his family, particularly watching recorded events of his grandchildren’s activities.

Jake was preceded in death by a child, Amy Dull; a sister, Marilyn Ahrens; a brother, Max Dull; a grandchild, Ayden Forest Maxwell Archibald; and a great-grandchild, Beau Alan Ray Flory. He was also preceded in death by two brother-in-law’s, Ralph Ahrens and Donald Whitmore and two sister-in-laws, Alice (Hughes) Dull and Gloria (Merriman) Dull.
