CAHU Glossary

In Memorium

OCAHU is sad to announce the passing of one of our own, Jason Reichert, who passed away in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, on May 4, 2020.  A long-term member of OCAHU, CAHU and NAHU, Jason was a past Vice President, Political Action Committee, for OCAHU.  Jason was full of life; a former baseball player from Little League through high school at Villa Park High School, an avid golfer, a long-term season ticket holder for the San Diego/LA Chargers, and a huge supporter/booster of his girls’ soccer teams.  He also enjoyed Anaheim Ducks hockey and USA Men’s and Women’s soccer.  One of his favorite past-times was deep-sea fishing, and he had planned to build a house and retire on the Sea of Cortez, where he could enjoy his favorite things. 

Jason was a successful insurance agent and proud owner of JLR Insurance Services, Anaheim, California.  He was involved with many charities.  If you knew Jason, you would undoubtedly remember his warm smile, his generosity and loyalty, and his love of life.  He was always willing to lend a helping hand and was there to talk if you ever needed a friend. 

Jason passed from Acute Pulmonary Edema, which was a result of many rounds of radiation therapy following his past cancer diagnoses.  He is survived by his parents, James and Carolyn, two sisters, Lisbeth and Liane, and his children, Elizabeth (15) and Jacklyn (13). 

Jason’s family has indicated that there will be a Celebration of Life at a later date.  In the meantime, in lieu of flowers, the family has asked for donations to an education fund set up for his daughters.  Please contact Catherine Lagaris at Hephatha Lutheran Church, at (714) 637-0887, or by email at  If you would like to share your memories and photos of Jason please visit the memorial site at!/
