I am sad to report that Trooper Jason Kaine passed away within the past hour.
The Vermont State Police family has suffered another terrible loss. Jason fought a courageous battle with leukemia. We all have learned a lesson in courage.
The details of the services are yet to be worked out. Capt. John Filipek has been assigned to coordinate those details. As soon as those details are known we will get the details to the field.
Please take a moment to remember Jason's family; Joyce his wife, his children Lucas and Liam, his parents Larry and Karen as well as his other immediate family members.
Thank you.

Jason Kaine has had a setback in his treatment.
Today Jason went to Brattleboro Memorial Hospital for some routine follow up. A blood test revealed his platelet count was significantly lower than normal. The good news is the white cell count was normal and tests have not detected any indication the Leukemia is back. Jason is receiving a blood transfusion at this time to stabilize his condition. That blood was relayed from Fletcher Allen early this afternoon by VSP Troops.
The folks at Duke Medical Center want Jason back there for treatment tomorrow. Joyce Kaine is making the arrangements for travel at this time with the help of Troops from D2. At this point it is hoped he will travel to his parents in CT tonight and then fly to NC at about 0700 Friday morning.
While this news is concerning, it's important to note Jason is still up and around and the medical folks are optimistic. At this point we ask that everyone just keep Jason in their thoughts and prayers.
I will issue updates when new information is available.

Today we welcomed Jason Kaine back home. We met Joyce and Jason at the State line and escorted them back to the house. Jason looks good and sounds very positive. He was clear that his goal was to return to work as soon as possible. Jason wants everyone to know how much he and Joyce appreciate all your support. (Click on Photo for Enlargement)

I just spoke to Jason Kaine on his cell phone and his Team of Doctors has released him 15 days early and he is headed northbound on INTERSTATE 95 as of 1400 hours..  Joyce and Jason are headed to New Jersey to stop over at Joyce's parents and will return to Vermont on either Thursday or Friday!!
Jason can return to a normal routine with diet and lifestyle.  He dropped allot of weight while undergoing treatment and is currently 163 pounds.  He hopes to gradually get his strength back and increase his weight up to about 185-190..
Jason stated his blood counts are in the normal range now.
Jason's goal is to be back working light duty sometime in June and then hit the road in late July early August!!
I want to thank everyone for their support especially those of you who donated annual leave to help Jason through this period of time.  
Thanks again,

Lt Anderson
