Yesterday Mineola lost a great leader and civic icon. Jason Hightower, owner of KMOO succumbed to the cancer that had been plaguing him for a few years.
Jason touched so many lives in the area that there is no way to effectively say just how far of a reach his work had. He was also 2008 Chairman of the Texas Association of Broadcasters.
Everyone who knew Jason speaks of his untiring efforts to help the broadcasting community as well as his efforts with toy drives and other fund raising activity here in Wood County.
