But when Jason’s mother revealed she’s a lesbian, Jason’s father was banished from the church and had to take several jobs to feed his family.

  2. What a sweet, lost soul. I was crushed at the very end when it said he was drinking again. I truly hope he was/is able to keep it under control. This episode really touched me, especially the older sister who mothered her siblings after the mom left.

  3. I thought it said he has been sober since 2008? I found him to be very attractive at the end of the episode!

  5. i don’t understand why candy didn’t have the mother apologize for leaving them at the mercy of their horribly abusive father and that she also didn’t have BOTH parents, but particularly the father, apologize for the severe abuse. i don’t get it?? jason, and frankly ALL the kids, need to hear that. to help them heal. i’m really disappointed in this episode.

    • She was also extremely abusive towards her kids. She broke one of the girl’s arms. Both parents beat them until they were broke.It sounded like things may have gotten better once she left. Meaning the father is working all day and she’s no longer around so the beatings must have stopped.

      JMO….I’m sure Candy took everything into consideration when deciding how she’s going to lead the intervention.

      I was sad that Jason started drinking again. He was so broken up. He was screaming out for help. He’s literally crying out . I loved this whole family. Talented and loving towards each other.

  6. Has anyone been able to find out anything about Jason and Joy? I have searched and searched and cant find anything. This is my all time favorite episode. I totally relate to Jason with the family stuff, my family was always pretty dysfunctional and as an adult i found substances make all those memories go away for awhile. At 57 now ive grown out of partying but im on pain medication for the rest of my life (im a cancer survivor) and even now all these years later i still find myself taking my meds to “forget” things. Jason just really touched my soul listening to him talk about his past.

  7. I wonder how this brother & sister are today? Joy’s son would be about 13-? Very sad story & not sure why these siblings were not taken away or the parents investigated when their sisters arm was broken from being abused-? I wish them all well & hope that they all got help.

  9. the part when he plays music whith his family in the middle of the show, then he goes outside and cries in the stairs while music is still playing is according to me the best editing work I’ve seen all Intervention episodes.

  11. Sadly, their niece was murdered. Her name was Jordan and her obituary states that Jessica was her mother.

    Here are a few links about the whole situation from start to today.

    I don’t have them in order so please check which is current. There are plenty out there from different times because it seems like this was a huge story.
