Jason Landers, originally from Paris and a graduate of Paris High School lost his battle against cancer on Monday.

In January 2013, Landers was diagnosed with Stage IV cholangiocarcinoma, a form of cancer that originates in the bile ducts. Chemotherapy helped shrink “three or four” golf ball-sized tumors in his liver, downgrading his cancer to Stage II.

Jason was a volleyball coach and math teacher at Bowie High School for 17 years, and his wife Cathy was also a softball coach there. They have 4 year old triplets.
