A touching tribute from Millennium Restaurant in San Francisco, where Jason was the beloved Sous Chef, is shared below.
Millennium's Sous Chef, Jason Dunbar, spent his last day in Yosemite on Friday, his favorite place outside of the kitchen, with people he loved, people who loved him. He and Eric Tucker created the menu together for the past five years and he had been with Millennium since February of 2004. Jason left us too soon, and he will be missed deeply by everyone who knew him.
He was honest and full of life—someone who believed that if he was going to do something, it was going to be done right and with all of his endless energy and integrity. He was a wonderful teacher, an avid reader and someone who was always true to himself and to those around him.
He was extremely talented and so passionate about and dedicated to feeding people delicious food that did not do harm in its making. He loved laughing and making people laugh, and he went out of his way every day to make this day better than the one before. He has influenced so many, and so much, and his spirit will live always in the people who love him, in our enduring memories, in our constant gratitude—in us forever.
