Condolences from Chris and Linda Kohout on the passing of Rick. We have great memories of our times together all through 4 years at the Psi Psi house and at UNL. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Linda, we are so sad for you and all of your family. Our memories of Rick are also a part of my Cornish family memories. You guys coming to important miles stones in our lives, getting together for the bonfire parties out at Pelican Point...always good friends to us all especially to my mom and dad. Rick will be missed. Love, Nancy Exstrom
Rick, I only knew him a few months and after first day of meeting him and Linda I knew where I wanted to work. I have met JASA drivers all over and all have said how great Rick and Linda are. That says something about how great he was . last time I had the honor of talking to Rick he met my son and was so nice and talked in depth about what college my son was going to and his major. We talked about the small things in life like how he loved to watch animals and birds. Made me feel like we had known each other for years.. Linda he picked you for a reason and I know things are tough now just remember you have a family here at JASA that love you and are thinking and praying for you .?
I can think of several words to describe Rick: integrity, helpful, honest, willing, humorous, passionate, listener, patient, sweat, hard-working, non-stop. I've had the honor of working with Rick from a business perspective for 15 years and not once did I ever feel I was being given the short end of the deal. Rick was very customer fucused and great to work with. Linda, I'm so sorry. My thoughts and prayers are with you, your family and your extended Jasa family at Jasa Transit.
I've only known Rick for 3 years. He was one of the very few left that you could deal with a handshake. I was never treated as a driver I was treated as family. He knew every day where every driver was because he cared. When I look into an empty office I know no one will ever fill his shoes. The kindness that he showed can only come out of a special man. Linda right now no words can make this any better. What we can do is stand behind you and continue to make Rick's dream come true. And that is to do the best job we can to make the company grow. Jesus told us in the Bible in my father's house are many mansions. And I go to prepare a place for you where I am you will be also. With that promise we know Rick's looking down on us. We pray God's comfort for you at this time and that he will continue to hold you through this difficult time
So sorry for the loss-Rick was a man of integrity and provided opportunities for so many, including me. I appreciate his fairness and straight forward honest way of doing business. His door was always open with a friendly greeting. Many lives were impacted over the years by Rick, for which we are all thankful. Rick will be missed!
Our thoughts are with our Jasa family during this sad time for all of you. Rick was loved and will be missed by us so much, Love to all: Uncle Chebu, Debbie, Gary and Todd.

Our sympathy and prayers are with your family during this difficult time.

We are so very sorry for your loss. Faron has always spoken so highly of Rick. He has done so much for Faron and our family. Faron is so very proud to have been part of this company from the beginning and Rick truly meant everything to Faron. I have heard nothing but the best about Rick Jasa and as I witnessed first hand, he was an amazing man. He has stood by Faron, stood behind Faron and believed in him. He will be dearly missed by our family. Rick was dearly loved and admired and we are so fortunate to have been part of the Jasa Transit family. Rick did treat us as family.
So sorry for your loss. Rick has been such a huge influence on Faron and our family. He will dearly be missed. I am so thankful that he has been such a wonderful influence, friend, and business associate. I have never heard a negative word about Rick and he treated Faron awesome. Rick cannot ever be replaced.
We are so very sorry for you loss. Rick was so liked and valued as a partner with us. I personally enjoyed any time that I got to spend with Rick in different discussions and he was very helpful to us when we were starting the plant. He will be greatly missed. Please let us know if there is anything that we can do.
There are no words to express my sorrow for your loss. I began my relationship with Rick, Linda and Jasa Transit over 19 years ago with a handshake to do business together. That business relationship grew over the years to be one of my true and valued friendships. Its hard to define what makes a great man, but you know when your in the presence of one. In Rick it was easy to see, he was truly a Great Man. A man of his word, A man of wisdom, A man of character. Truly a Great Man who I was honored to call a Friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
Linda... We're so sorry to hear about Rick's Passing. So many fond memories of all the years and the good times we had in High School, College, and early married life. Just know that you're in our thoughts and prayers. Tom & Mary
So many years have passed since we were with Rick yet what I remember is a kind and gentle person that made you feel like he truly cared. Linda and family, our hearts are aching for you! God's Peace through our Lord Jesus! Peggy Dobberstein (high school classmate)
