Jason's Box was created to extend our hand in gratitude to men and women for their service in all our military branches.

We provide physical support and emotional encouragement by sending deployed troops items they miss from home.

And when they come home, we will be there to support their transition from military to civilian life.





Jason's Box has continued to grow and collaborate, driven by an engaged and informed board of directors, many compassionate and caring volunteers, and a new partnership with UnityPoint Health - Trinity. This progressive health system has stepped up in a big way to support the mission and goals of Jason's Box by providing valuable resources. They are forward-thinking, aware of the issues faced by our veterans, and actively implementing, along with Jason's Box, strategic initiatives in support of the military community.


From care packages to education and training to advocacy, Jason's Box is taking the lead in caring for our troops and veterans so they have the support they need. We believe that by working together, we can reduce the barriers to those who will benefit from treatment. And we want to help make the process of getting that help easier and more accessible.


Among Teri’s most cherished possessions is a beautiful walnut chest filled with items from Jason’s military service. She simply calls it Jason’s Box. It was a gift given to her by an Army Lieutenant Colonel with a heart for God and for soldiers. The story behind Jason’s Box has inspired Teri to keep giving and to send special gifts from home to our troops deployed around the world. It all starts with a thank you card on which they can request items they need or want. A box is then custom-prepared and sent to them free of charge as a way of thanking them for their service.


Jason's Box is a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the health and well-being of our military men and women. Jason's Box was founded by Teri Johnson, in honor of her son CPL Jason G. Pautsch, KIA April 10, 2009, Mosul, Iraq.
