    Details of Disappearance

    Jason was last seen when she picked up some medicine at her Bethesda, Maryland residence on July 20, 1977. She has never been heard from again. She was affiliated with the Divine Light Mission, a religious group based on Hindu beliefs that was founded in 1960 and rose to prominence in the West during the 1970s. She was possibly staying with their members at a house in Bethesda. She planned to attend a Divine Light Mission meeting in Florida and had packed clothes, money and a camera for her upcoming trip, but left them all behind when she went missing. Jason has been known to hitchhike. It's possible she did travel to Florida without her luggage.

    Jason enjoyed jewelry making in 1977. She is originally from the Chevy Chase, Maryland area and graduated high school there. Her case remains unsolved.
