Jason Michael Dunlap Obituary


Jason Michael Dunlap, 29, joined Jesus in heaven on July 9, 2020, following an ATV accident.

On October 9, 1990, Jason was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the son of Michael Newell and Cindy Lynn (Whitehorn) Dunlap. Jason grew up attending school in Hominy from kindergarten through his senior year, graduating with the Class of 2009 as the Salutatorian. During high school, he played football, baseball and was on the track team. After graduation, Jason enrolled at the University of Central Oklahoma, Oklahoma University, and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Geology from Oklahoma State University. He worked at GHD as an Environmental Scientist providing services to private and public sector clients. He exceeded the clients’ expectations and contributed greatly to their success.

Being outdoors, fishing, hunting, golfing and spending time with his family and friends was what Jason cherished. He was a loyal friend to everyone, and never talked wrong about others. His overpowering smile and laugh will be missed by everyone. The time he spent at Deer camp, on the lake skiing and wakeboarding was memorable and precious for him and his loved ones. Jason always anticipated others’ needs and was willing to help at the best of his abilities. In life, Jason loved the time spent with family, especially at his mom and dad’s house up on the hill where he spent most of his weekends.

Survivors include his parents Mike and Cindy Dunlap of Hominy, Oklahoma; three sisters Erin Koscheski and her husband Todd of Pryor, Oklahoma, Juliann Sparks and her husband Barry of Sand Springs, Oklahoma, Lizzy Orf and her husband Dakota of Blanchard, Oklahoma; his girlfriend Cassandra Butler of Sand Springs, Oklahoma; maternal grandfather Dudley Whitehorn of Hominy, Oklahoma; six nieces and nephews Karson, Dex, Layla, Major, Hadlie, Krew; his four-legged buddy Rufus, as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends that will mourn his passing. Jason was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents Robert and Wray Dunlap and his maternal grandmother Joyce Whitehorn.

Services will be held at 11 a.m., Monday, July 13, 2020, at the Whitehorn Family Cemetery. Visitation will be held at Mike and Cindy’s home on Saturday, July 11, and Sunday, July 12. Chapman-Black Funeral Home will be handling the arrangements. Friends and family may visit an online guest book and memorial page for Jason at www.chapman-black.com
