Jay Edward Oberman, Jr, passed away suddenly on February 23, 2021. He was born on October 6, 1946 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to Jay Edward Oberman and Marybelle Oberman nee Fox. He graduated from Cumberland High School in 1965.
Eddie spent most of his younger life and school years in Camp Hill, PA with the exception of two years at The Mathews School in Fort Washington, PA which specialized in helping students with severe dyslexia.
After high school Eddie worked doing home construction jobs in the Harrisburg, PA area and did restoration work on his family’s cabin and others in Pine Grove Furnace, PA, as well as restoring classic American cars and English sports cars.
After three years in California working home construction, he moved to Loudoun County, VA in 1973. Once there he continued to do odd jobs, haul junk, home construction/restoration, farm pond installation/development and septic system installation and maintenance.
He also established a business reconditioning old log cabins and re-erecting them on properties of vacation home owners. He built his own log cabin on his property in Purcellville.
He started Cheap Eddie’s Roll-Off Service providing dumpsters for homeowners and construction sites as well as hauling manure for the many area horse farms. Along with this business Eddie (now mostly known as Jason) started Loudoun Construction.
Jason was a lover of animals, particularly dogs (Coty and Whipperdoo were favorites) and cats. He was a fun, life-loving, kind-hearted and hard-working man. He was loved and respected by his many friends and co-workers and will be missed.
A service in memory of Jason will be held at 11:30AM on March 27, 2021 at North Fork Baptist Church, 38130 North Fork Road, Purcellville, VA 20132.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Loudoun County Cat Coalition in honor of Jason online at loudouncommunitycats.org or mailed to Loudoun Community Cat Coalition, PO Box 1960, Leesburg, VA 20177.
