Jason Corvin, age 37, passed away on Wednesday, August 12, 2020 at Bristol Regional Hospital. He was a native of Washington County, Va. and was an accomplished man in his short life. Jason was a graduate of Patrick Henry High and was a member of the Rebel Regiment Band. He played saxophone and became the Drum Major in his senior year. He went on to study at Emory & Henry College where he earned degrees in Business and Economics. He later earned his Master’s in Accounting from Liberty University.
After college, Jason taught Accounting at Virginia Highlands Community College (VHCC) and at King University. While at VHCC, he founded and managed the Wolf Grounds Coffee Shop. Jason had his own accounting and tax preparation business; Corvin and Company. With his giving heart, he recruited students to accompany him to the Bristol, Va. Library, where they would prepare taxes for individuals who could not afford these services elsewhere. He received numerous awards and recognitions for his volunteer work.
Jason had a fun loving and lighter side. He was a true University of Tennessee, Big Orange Fan. He enjoyed countless card games and playing dominoes with family and friends. Jason took great pride in his home, and especially with his flowers. During his illness, he hoped that working with his flowers would give him something to do. Jason was a member of Greenfield Baptist Church.
He was predeceased at age 7 by his father, Ricky Corvin.
Jason is survived by his loving mother and father, Janie and Glenn McGlocklin of Meadowview, Va.; brothers Jonathan McGlocklin of Charlotte, NC and Jeremy McGlocklin and wife Angel of Meadowview, Va.; numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. He is also survived by his fur buddies Diesel and Rocky.
Becky Corvin of Abingdon is his only surviving grandparent. Those two had a special bond after the death of Jason’s father. They could laugh, cry, fuss and makeup. Jason was her pride and joy and she always thought that he “looked like a million bucks.”
