Two things seem certain when you step on the campgrounds in Corsicana, Texas. A plethora of snakes and scorpions to contend with, and Major Jason Blake. Major Blake was a youth camp institution, always giving of his time and energy to serve during the camps of the East Texas District. He constantly invested not only himself, but his finances as well. Major Blake passed away at General Convention in Dallas, TX on June 29, 2011.
I can think of no better way for us to honor this great man than to continue with the Major Jason Blake Memorial Camp Scholarship Fund, which was founded by my brother, Rick Martinez. Each year, we raise money for this cause and use those monies to send children to camp in memory of Major Jason Blake. We are proud that Jason's spirit of benevolence will live on and that student's lives will be changed as a result of this scholarship program.
