Jason David Peary of Woburn passed away unexpectedly on Monday, June 30th, as he was stricken at home while working on a computer presentation. The cherished son of David C. and Donna-Marie (Chinian) Peary, he was twenty-seven years of age.
Born in Winchester, Jason was raised in Woburn and attended the Shamrock Elementary School and the Joyce Middle School. At eight years of age, Jason joined Woburn’s youth ice hockey program. He also participated in Woburn’s soccer and baseball programs, was a member of the Woburn Boys and Girls Club, and a member of the Boston Bruins Jr. Hockey Club. Aside from being a terrific ice hockey player, he also loved street hockey, roller blade hockey, and was a season ticket holder to the Boston Bruins. He always enjoyed the outdoors and loved playing with his dog, Pebbles. Additionally he was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Order of the Arrow, which is considered the Boy Scouts National Honor Society.
Education was always a priority for Jason, and therefore he made the decision to attend Boston College High School where he excelled in computer science. While attending BC High, he was a member of Father Pollard’s ice hockey team and also attended the Elite Hockey Camp at Phillips Andover Academy.
After graduating in 1999, he went on to Boston College, where he received his degree in Computer Science in 2003. In addition to his college studies, he worked in BC’s food service program, preparing meals for the athletes, and also earned his certification as an Emergency Medical Technician.
Following his undergraduate education, Jason pursued his Master’s Degree in Computer Science at Suffolk University. While attending Suffolk, he was recruited and mentored by the owners of WITS in Waltham, where he was currently employed. Jason was presently working on several important projects, which he was delighted to be a part of and was looking forward to field testing his programs later this month in New York City. He also had plans to return to school to earn another Master’s Degree in Accounting as an adjunct to his present position at WITS. Jason also worked for Armstrong Ambulance, a job he held since graduating from Boston College.
Just recently, Jason expressed an interest in firefighting, as his grandfather, Robert Peary, was the former Fire Chief for the City of Woburn, his father, David Peary, a Lieutenant, and his uncle and cousins are all members of the Woburn Fire Department.
A responsible person throughout his young life, Jason had a passion for life, a penchant for learning, natural athletic ability, and was a caring and devoted son and brother who will be sadly missed.
Jason was predeceased by his maternal grandmother, Lorraine Chinian.
He is lovingly survived by his parents, David C. and Donna-Marie (Chinian) Peary, his sister, Rachel M. Peary, and his paternal grandparents, Robert and Myrtle (Couture) Peary, all of Woburn, and his girlfriend, Christen Saia of Tewksbury. Also surviving are many loving aunts, uncles and cousins.
A funeral will be held from the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn, on Monday, July 7th at 9:15 a.m., followed by a Funeral Mass in St. Barbara’s Church, 138 Cambridge Road, Woburn at 10. Interment will follow in Woodbrook Cemetery, 100 Salem Street, Woburn.
