Jason Scott Campbell Born 10/23/76 passed away suddenly July 19. Loving son of Duncan and Donna Campbell. Dear brother of Adam and the late Chad Campbell. Cherished uncle of Ava and London. Nephew of Christina Clarke, Lee Campbell and Andy Campbell. Also survived by many loving family members and friends. Jason was a graduate of Reading High School and Kent State University. He was class president at Reading High in his senior year, a swimmer, 6-year wrestler, drummer in the marching and pep bands, and he landed the lead in numerous plays as a Thespian. He was part of Teen CASA (Citizens Against Substance Abuse) where he mentored and counseled other students. He worked to get his college degree in 3 years so he could get started on his career. His first professional endeavor was with the Blue Man Group using his percussion skills. He lived in New York for over 11 years where he enjoyed success as an actor in off Broadway productions, Independent films, online campaigns and numerous national commercials. He was a finalist at the Actorsí Studio in NYC. He traveled extensively around the county and the world. When Jason was 34, he became ill and was later diagnosed with bipolar disorder. He struggled for the last 10 years to accept taking the necessary medication and grieving for his former life. Jason was a teetotaler and health fanatic who ran, worked out, ate healthy and didnít even take aspirin. This illness and the needed treatment were impossible for him to reconcile. While Jason enjoyed stability for the last year and a half, that stability required medication. Stability also meant he was thinking more clearly but that clarity was a double-edged sword. His decision to take his own life is something that will forever haunt us but something we always feared was possible. Jason believed in God with all his heart and we feel he is at peace and in a better place. He is no longer struggling to find a path forward. Our hope is by sharing Jasonís story others may know they are not alone. Private services will be held for the family. In lieu of flowers please consider sending a donation to Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health (GCB) or National Alliance on Mental Illness {NAMI} Southwest Ohio.
