Jason A. Yost, age 42, passed away at Rose Arbor Hospice Residence on Friday, June 28, 2019. Jason was born in Pittsburgh, PA, the son of Richard and Kathleen Yost. He was a devoted son, husband, and father and a dedicated teacher to his students at Kalamazoo College, where he was a visiting instructor of literature. Jason received his PhD in English at the University of Chicago and loved teaching literature, especially from the Renaissance and Medieval period. Jason also enjoyed hiking, traveling with his family, cooking, gardening, and cheering for his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers. On Aug 6, 2005 after meeting in the English department at the University of Chicago, he married Babli Sinha with whom he shared his interests in literature, politics, and travel. He treasured reading and playing Legos and sports with his young son Neel, whom he loved with all his heart. Jason’s humor, intellect, and curiosity will be missed, and though he has passed too soon, his memory will live on in the hearts of all those who loved him. Jason is survived by his wife and son; parents; in-laws, Mita and Provat Sinha; brother-in-law, Ricky Sinha and his wife Amanda Sinha; as well as nieces, aunts, uncles, cousins and dear friends. He was preceded in passing by his grandparents.
