GLANCE JASON DOW GLANCE (Age 44) Beloved husband, son, brother, and friend to many died on Sunday, August 31, 2008, at Georgetown University Hospital from complications of colon cancer. Jason was born and spent his young life in Winston-Salem, NC. He received his undergraduate degree from New College in Sarasota, FL and his MFA in painting from George Washington University. Jason spent a year in Taiwan teaching English and then made his home in Washington DC for the past 21 years, working most recently as the graphic designer for the journals of the American Psychiatric Association. Jason was a gifted painter who also enjoyed playing the flute, saxophone, and the piano. He also amassed an impressive collection of jazz and classical recordings and his knowledge of jazz of the 20’s to the 50’s was extraordinary. Jason was cofounder of a neighborhood magazine, the Grant Circular, and was a loved member of the Petworth community. He is survived by his wife, Jacqueline Arendse; his mother and father, Bill and Bette Glance of Winston-Salem, NC; brothers and sisters-in-law, Jeff and Tricia Glance of Raleigh, NC and Jonathan and Cindy Glance, of Macon, GA; seven nieces and nephews, and in-laws, Basil and Coral Arendse of Easton, MD and Avril Arendse of Philadelphia, PA. A graveside funeral service will be held at Rock Creek Cemetery, Rock Creek Church Road and Webster Street, NW, Washington, DC 20011 ( ) on Friday, September, 5, 2008 at 10 a.m. Friends and family are invited back to Jason’s home afterwards. All correspondence of condolence and friendship can be sent to 4206 New Hampshire Ave, NW, Washington, DC, 20011. A memorial service will also be held at the Home Moravian Church in Winston-Salem on September 13, 2008. In lieu of flowers, any memorials can be donated in Jason’s name to “3 Bles Nursing Staff” Georgetown University Hospital, 3 Bles, 3800 Resevoir Road, NW, Washington, DC 20007, for the nurses on 3 Bles, Georgetown University Hospital to use for the cancer patients they care for on that ward. These nurses are truly gifts to the sick and their families at the most difficult time of their lives. They made Jason’s last days joyful, comfortable, and peaceful and for that we will always be grateful.
