Jason Anthony “JJ” Jolkowski was a 19-year-old man who lived in Omaha, Nebraska. Jason was working at Fazoli’s restaurant in Omaha and also attending college part-time in Iowa, where he had gotten into the college’s radio broadcasting programme.
On the 13th of June, 2001, Jason was supposed to have a day off work but got called in early due to short staff. As his car was currently being repaired, Jason was originally going to walk to work but he then made plans for a co-worker to pick him up at Benson High School.
On the way out of his family residence, Jason decided to help his younger brother take out the trash cans into the garage. A neighbour saw Jason carry the trash cans into his house at around 10:45am. This is the last time anyone saw Jason.
Between 11:15am and 11:30am, Jason’s co-worker called the house to see why Jason hadn’t met her at the high school as they planned. This is when Jason was discovered to be missing. A check of the surveillance footage from Benson High School showed that Jason had never turned up at the property.
Jason has not been seen or heard from since. He had $650 in his bank account that has not been touched since his disappearance. He also has not cashed any new cheques or used his mobile phone or bank card since. His car was never picked up from the repair shop either.
At the time of his disappearance, Jason had no more than $60 on him. There were no personal items missing from his bedroom, and he did all of his personal chores up until he vanished. Jason was also due to start a new job the following week which he was very excited about.
Jason’s family believe that foul play may have been involved in his disappearance. They have said that he was too responsible to just take off without a warning, and he was not experiencing any problems at the time of his disappearance. Jason was a shy person who was close with his family, had no involvement in drugs or alcohol and had no known enemies.
Jason was 19 years old when he disappeared on the 13th of June 2001. He was a white male, 6″1′, 160lbs with brown hair and brown eyes. He had learning disabilities related to speech and language, which may make him appear to be midly mentally disabled but he is actually above average intelligence. Jason would also go by the nickname “JJ”. If Jason is still alive today, he would be 41 years old.
He was last seen wearing a white Chicago Cubs or Sammy Sosa t-shirt, a blue or black Chicago Cubs baseball cap, black dress pants and black dress shoes. He was also carrying his red work t-shirt with him.
