Tribute to teenage crash victim
Jason Ness
Jason's parents said he had a love for the military
The parents of a teenager who was killed in a car crash in Kinross-shire have paid tribute to their "wonderful and very special" son.

Jason Ness was a passenger in a Peugot 306 which overturned in a field off the B920 Scotlandwell to Ballingry road at about 2240 BST on Saturday.

The 21-year-old driver suffered minor injuries in the accident.

Jason's family said he was a "model son" who would "always be adored by us all".

'Always smiling'

His parents, Willie and Rosie, said Jason loved sport and keeping fit, and had wanted to join the Royal Marines after serving his apprenticeship as a bricklayer.

They said: "He was such a brilliant person who was always smiling and he had a wicked sense of humour. He was always the life and soul of the party."

Words cannot describe how much I will miss him

Mr and Mrs Ness said Celtic fan Jason had joined the Army cadets at the age of 12, where he met his girlfriend Lorna.

Mrs Ness said: "He was a perfectionist in everything that he did.

"Whether it was getting ready for a night out or ironing his clothes, everything was done to military precision.

"He always wanted the best in life and was so ambitious. Once he set his mind on doing something he wouldn't stop until he had achieved his goal."

Jason's elder sister Suzanne added: "Jason was my wee brother but he was also my best friend.

"Words cannot describe how much I will miss him."
