I never got the chance of ever meeting him but none the less it hurts to see a fellow ballers go down.

My thoughts and prayers!

Calef "Towlie," Jason Thomas





CEDAR RAPIDS - Jason Thomas Calef "Towlie," 22, of 5005 Valley View Dr., Cedar Rapids, died Tuesday, Nov. 18, 2008, unexpectedly at University Hospitals, Iowa City. Services: 11 a.m. Monday at Teahen Chapel, Walford, by Pastor James Bzoskie. Friends may visit Sunday from 3 to 7 p.m. and after 10 a.m. Monday at Teahen Chapel, Walford.

Jason is survived by his parents, Eric and Michelle; a brother, Matthew; and two sisters, Danielle and Taylor, all of Cedar Rapids; grandparents, Bill Calef of West Liberty, Mary Calef of Cedar Rapids and Arlo Becker of Norway; a great-grandmother, Doris Denney of West Liberty; aunts and uncles, Barnie Calef (Kathy Weuste) of Shellsburg, Ray (Kim) Calef, Robin Calef and Mike (Chris) Calef, all of Cedar Rapids, Mike (Kathy) Becker of Atkins, Lisa (Michael) Porter of Fishers, Ind., and Robin (Rich) Pingeton of Normal, Ill.; several cousins; and his many friends and brothers in the National Professional Paintball League and the Paintball World.

His loving grandmother, Judy Becker, precedes Jason in death.

Jason was born March 19, 1986, in Cedar Rapids, the son of Eric and Michelle Becker Calef.

Jason was one of those extraordinary individuals who was able to enjoy his passion and love for something so much that it enabled him to perform at a professional level in paintball that gained the respect and adoration of teammates and opponents alike. He was able to carry that zest for living in everything he did, positively affecting every person who was graced by his touch. He will always be loved and missed by many.

From his paintball brothers.

Any Given Sunday. This is what Jason lived for. He never carried a frown and always made the people around him smile. It truly takes a great individual to be loved as a son, not only by your family, but also by numerous families and people around the world. Most take a lifetime to search for those things most important to them. For Jason, 22 years held more lifelong memories than most, and those memories positively touched everyone blessed by his presence. To turn the heads of a few makes a character. To turn the heads of thousands takes a hero. One thing Jason taught the world was to live every day to the fullest with a continuous smile on your face. You'll always be on the field with us. We love you.

Online condolences may be left for the family at www.teahenfuneralhome.com

A memorial fund has been established in Jason's name

As of right now I do not have the name or location of the funeral. I should have that information tomarrow and will post it.

I know the time is going to be 11 A.M. Monday, November 24.

Again as soon as I get the funeral and cemetery's information I will post it up.


If anyone, you, your friends, your team, or your sponsors would like to send any cards, flowers, pictures, or condolences to Jason's family here is there address:

Eric and Michelle Calef
5005 Valley View Dr S.W.
Cedar Rapids, IA 52404

I do ask, with this being very very personal, that all of you that do choose to send something, that you make sure everything is tasteful and to the utmost respect for Jason and his famaily.

I'm not trying to knock on anyone or saying that you won't, this is just something that needs to be said.

If anyone has any questions on things that they also might want to do or are unsure of you can PM me or call me and I will check with Damian.

Oh wow, thanks for posting those pics Tim, I totally forgot about that!

I dont remember all the story behind those pictures, but I think the team Towlie was playing for had no chance to win that match. He took his barrel off and just started lobbing balls at people. He somehow made it to that carwash and just hit there while his team finished off the game.

RIP Towlie

That game was absolutely hilarious. I think he dove in the carwash off the break then came out later in the game. He was running all over the place. One of the funniest moments ever.

Anyone remember the NLPL in Menomonie, WI where MW ARMY and VINTAGE had the civil war battle? That was almost as good as the carwash move. I'll try to find pics.
