Our loving father, son and brother peacefully went home to be with the Lord Wednesday, December 27, 2018. He was born November 13, 1987 to Geri Gilyard-Morris and James Chapman, Jr.
Jason better known as "J Champ" or by others as "Super Nova", graduated from South Side High School class of 2005, in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He later went to study Mechanical repair and Precision crafts at Vincennes University class of 2007. J Chap later discovered he had a passion for hair, so he decided to go Ravenscroft Beauty College to study Trichology.
Super Nova pursued his career as a professional master barber at Up Top Barber Shop. Shortly after working at Up Top Barber Shop, he went to become the co-owner of Above Average Barber Shop. Some of Jason's hobbies were football, track, listening to rap music, fashion and traveling, but above all he was most passionate about his career as a barber.
