The Passing Of Jason Oliver

It pains me to report the sudden and unexpected passing of Jason Oliver, Assistant Superintendent at the Stanford GC. Jason was 26 years old. He was charged with overseeing the Siebel Varsity Golf Training Complex. Jason was a dedicated employee with an incredible passion for the golf industry. He had enormous potential and often stated his goal of someday being President of the Golf Course Superintendents of America. We will miss Jason and hope he is somehow in a better place.


  1. Jason was also very involved with the Stanford Hospital Softball League. We were out in the field yesterday when we heard the news about Jason. His team, Cardinal Sin, and the Leeches (our team), paused for a moment of silence before the playoff games began. Jason, your team members were very grieved at your passing but honored you with the highest regards. You were, and still are truly loved. Peace be with you.

  2. This is so heart breaking. I don't even know what to say.

    I'm praying for his fiancé and family. What a tragedy.

  3. Your smile energy and enthusiasm for life will be missed! Words can not express how sad and shocked I was to hear of his passing. My heart goes out to his family.
