They became parents to Max in 2012, and Jason wanted that little boy to have everything in the world. He liked nothing better than to shop for things for Max. Jason was so dedicated to giving his children the best possible life, that in 2014 Kami was expecting their second child, he made the decision to leave Bismarck for Grand Forks, to be closer to the family who loved and supported their family. They moved to rural Grand Forks in May 2014 and Jayci Jo was born in August (JJ, like her daddy).
