‘He lived his faith’
Sudden passing of beloved Bay Ridge
pastor prompts outpouring of support
BY JESSICA PARKS
A Bay Ridge pastor is being deeply
mourned by his community and the
many lives he’s touched after passing
away suddenly in his sleep of a genetic
heart condition on Oct. 13.
“‘Well done thou good and faithful
servant’ are the words I have no
doubt my brother Pastor Jason Andrew
Walker heard this morning when he
went to be with his Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ,” wrote Jerry Walker Jr.
in an online fundraiser for his brother.
Pastor Jason Andrew Walker is remembered
by all for his passion for
serving others throughout his 43 years,
including the 17 years he served as a
pastor at the Bay Ridge Baptist Church
— a post he succeeded his father in.
“He epitomized Christ’s love and
shared his testimony and his faith not
only verbally but more importantly he
lived his faith as an example to others,”
his brother wrote.
The young pastor leaves behind his
wife of 20 years and seven children,
the youngest only 10 months old and
the oldest in college, as well as his parents,
Jerry Sr. and Dawn, a brother
and sister, and nieces and nephews.
He was also known as a father fi gure
to the countless teenagers and
children that he met via the church,
through his youth programs and
through the summer Bible school he
spent months organizing each year,
according to information provided to
Brooklyn Paper by Walker’s family.
Kids knew him as someone that
could both lend them advice but also
knew how to have fun — often greeting
them with a blast of Silly String or a
water gun. He would spend hours driving
across the fi ve boroughs to shuttle
kids back to the church so all could enjoy
the supervised activities hosted at
the Fourth Avenue parish at the intersection
of 67th Street.
Walker also devoted his time to the
seniors in his community starting when
he was just a teenager working at the
front desk at Norwegian Christan Home
and Health Center in Dyker Heights
— where he would practice preaching,
giving sermons once a month to the
women’s club, and later work as a parttime
chaplain meeting with residents
and hosting a weekly praise service
“Walk to the World” from 2007 to 2009.
“When Jason was a teenager and
studying for the Ministry, he worked
at the Front Desk and all the residents
loved him,” Amy Christodoulou,
of Norwegian Christian Home
and Health Center, wrote in a tribute
to Walker. “He preached once a month
to the Home’s Ladies Club where he got
practice and they got a good sermon.”
When he became a minister at Bay
Ridge Baptist Church along with his father,
they created a spring program at

the senior center in conjunction with
the Bob Jones Academy, a Christian
school in South Carolina, and Walker’s
family always volunteers for the
home’s Christmas Eve festivities.
“The residents loved him and his
beautiful family and our programs
were excellent because of their part,”
Christodoulou wrote. “We were always
grateful that they would spend
Christmas Eve with us.”
His love for New York City led him
to serve as Chaplain for the Brooklyn
Cyclones and the Manhattan Detention
Center in Manhattan’s Chinatown.
And people around the county and
the world may have been impacted by
Walker and his family, who volunteer
with Operation Christmas Child— a
project by Samaritan’s Purse giving
“shoebox gifts” to kids in need all over
the globe— and through missionary
work in Uganda.
Though he kept himself very busy,
the pastor was able to keep Tuesday
nights for his side passion, playing
recreational hockey at Aviation Sports
Center in Marine Park — where he
played as goalie on the same team as
his wife, Lisa, who plays right wing.
Walker’s impact on the world can
never be calculated but the outpouring
of support shown on the two online
fundraisers opened to help out his
family could be an indicator — raising
$80,000 within fi ve days of launching.
In addition to the donations, many
have posted prayers and words of gratitude
for the impact Walker has had on
their lives from Brooklyn, New York to
South Carolina and even Moldova.
The two fundraisers, both posted on
the popular donation site GoFundMe,
with a combined goal of $250,000 were
made by his brother Jerry and a family
friend though the money raised
will all go to his wife, Lisa, to pay for
funeral and living expenses.
A service for Walker was held at
Bay Ridge Baptist Church on Oct. 20.
