Disappearance of Jason Anthony Jolkowski

Jason Anthony Jolkowski is an American man who went missing under mysterious circumstances while walking towards his former high school to meet his coworker for a ride to work. Jolkowski was born on June 24, 1981. At the time he disappeared, he was attending college part-time while working at a local Fazoli's restaurant, his mother described him as “shy”, “a quiet boy” with only “a small handful of friends” and was not in a relationship. On June 13, 2001, Jason Jolkowski called his workplace, Fazoli's, stating that he made arrangements for a coworker to pick him up at Omaha Benson High School, where Jolkowski had attended school, due to his car being at the auto mechanic; the school was eight blocks from his home. He was last seen by a neighbor, who said he was taking out the trash at his home before walking to the school. Under an hour between 11:15 and 11:30 a.m. Jolkowski's co-worker had called his home stating that Jolkowski had failed to be at the high school for a ride to work. Jolkowski has not been heard from since then.

Shortly after his disappearance, the school's security cameras were checked, but none of them showed Jolkowski arriving at the school. His mother and father created Project Jason in his honor to help families through a loved one's disappearance. In 2005, after lobbying by his parents, "Jason's Law" was passed by Nebraska Legislature, providing for a statewide database on missing persons. Kelly Jolkowski, Jason's mother received a Volunteer for Victims award from U. S. Attorney General Eric Holder in 2010 and the Nebraska Governor's Points of Light Award in 2014 in recognition of her work to support families of missing people.
