Jason Thomas Cyran, 27, formerly of Tullahoma, died on the 22nd of October 2007 in his apartment in Chicago, Illinois. He was born in Nashville on 14 May 1980 and was raised in Manchester and Tullahoma. He was raised in the faith of his family, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and attended church at the Tullahoma Ward in Tullahoma. He attended Hickerson Station and Robert E. Lee Elementary schools and East Middle School. He graduated from Tullahoma High School in 1998. Later earned an Associate Degree in Business from the Borough of Manhattan Community College in New York City in December 2005 and was on the Dean's academic list several times. In February 2006 he began work for a freight brokerage firm, C.L. Services Inc., in Atlanta, GA. In June 2007 he was asked to help open a new branch office of the company in Chicago which entailed him moving there. He really loved his job, was reportedly a workaholic, and was employee of the month when he died. He was a real country boy that enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, caving, rafting and adventure. He loved ice cream, hot wings and a good steak. He was respectfully mannered with a free-spending, extroverted, risk-taking personality. He loved fast motorcycles, but was never able to master outrunning the police, and had a large collection of speeding tickets from many states. He loved helping people, and spent time as a volunteer in the rebuild effort after Hurricane Katrina in Gulfport, Mississippi. While living in Tullahoma he worked as a motorcycle mechanic and a pizza delivery man. He was an Eagle Scout in Troop 336. Because his extended family was rooted in the New York City area, he spent a lot of time there throughout his life. For a few years he went to school and worked as a security guard up there. He is survived by his parents, Frederic B. and Maryellen (nee Brienza) Cyran of Snellville Georgia; four sisters, Amber Cyran of Augusta, Georgia; Marietta Cyran of Atlanta, Georgia; Angela Cyran of Snellville, Georgia; and Rachel Cyran, at home, and one brother, Matthew Cyran, at home. He is also survived by his grandparents, Michael J. and Lillian Cyran of Queens, New York, and Alfred and Mary Brienza of Smithtown, New York, plus many uncles, aunts, and cousins.
