NEW BRUNSWICK - JASON HOWARD ROTHSTEIN passed away on Thursday, May 7, 2020, from COVID-19 at 71.
Born March 10, 1949, in Jamesburg, he grew up in East Brunswick, NJ, and for more than 20 years resided in New Brunswick, NJ.
Surviving are his two brothers, Alan Rothstein of Avon, CT and Paul Rothstein of Gainesville, FL. together with nieces, nephews and grand-nieces and nephews.
He loved the title, Uncle Jason, and enjoyed spending time with his brothers, his nieces and nephew, whether it was up North or in Florida. His passions included Buddhist teachings through the Shambala Meditation Center, languages especially Russian and Yiddish, pets, traveling, and kibbutzing Narishkeit with his family.
