Hello everyone. Jason has a birthday coming up (50th!) and I know, since he hasn’t been on social media much lately, you all might be wondering how he is doing. He looks forward to his birthday celebration every year; seeing his buddies and catching up on stories. And, we really haven’t sufficiently celebrated his release of “Triumphant Hearts” yet, due to all the physical challenges. That means, we need to plan one big, bad-ass party. Unfortunately, the time just isn’t right at the moment. We hope that will change soon.
The challenges have been scary and continue to be mysterious. Just when Jason thinks he knows why he feels short-of-breath and weak, and has the remedy, it crops up again and we look for a new remedy when no clear cause exists. It has been hard to stay focused and positive, but the great response to the album, the love and caring of everyone, and some excellent distractions, like Monk(TV show) are getting us all through this and we expect to come back tougher than ever.
I’m not sure how we will celebrate his birthday this year (maybe by watching Jaws, Amadeus, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Alien one after another-HA HA!) but we will be with him and we will be full of love, hope, and gratitude. And we will plan a party as soon as we possibly can. Thank you all for your kind wishes, support and love through the years. Stay tuned!
Prayers my Brother for restoration! Love you!!
We love you Jason!! Happy 50♡♡♡♡♡♡♡
Best wishes Jason!
Omg what an amazing awesome guitar player… Wowww… Love this guy… Love you Jason…
Wishing you love and hope today and every day! Thank you for the wonderful music, keep rockin 🤘🎸
Aw, love you guys..
Happy birthday Jason. I’m turning 50 this year too. And have been a fan since we were both 17. I do play guitar, but no where on your level. You’re an inspiration and I love you. I’m in NY and when I make it to California the first thing I want to do is meet you. God bless and God speed. Again, happy birthday
HaPpY 50tH BiRtHDaY JaSoN!
I loaned my copy of Triumphant Hearts to one of the young bussers at the restaurant who is going to college for violin on a scholarship next year. He was blown away, and is sharing your music and story with his friends now. Hope that’s a good gift. (And he returned my CD. Nice kid.)
All of you inspire me to be a better person. Happy birthday Jason, and even though we’ve never met, I love you my brother.
Wishing Jason a healthy and full life ahead! Happy Birthday!!
Happy blessed birthday, Jason! I Adarsha here (aka Ruth Mendelson). I’ve shared music with you in the past. Are we see you at San Maroun with Amma! when I’m able to be there.

Happy 50th Birthday Jason! Have an awesome birthday! Prayers to you for feeling better and hopefully to conquer this battle, as you conquered the music world, you are a true inspiration!!!
Jason Becker is one of the reasons that I started playing guitar and a huge inspiration to any musician looking to start playing. I know that he probably has a lot of messages like this, but to be honest, his music had helped me through times of suicidal thoughts and extreme depression. I am a man from western Nebraska and learned to play guitar from my father and he is a huge fan. My love for your music is unexplainable. Please keep creating the most incredible music and inspiring musicians around the world. You deserve all of the love in the world, Jason. I hope you can see this.
Happy birthday Jason, hope all goes well for you!
You’re welcome but thank y’all for showing people that hope and love does pay off
Happy B Day Jason!! Keep fighting!! What you do is just amazing and an example for all!!!👍🔥🎸
We love you in Ohio!
I hope this msg gets to you.
I have had cancer & in remission 7 years. My son, Andrew, has Crohn’s disease which is high cancer risk, & he is an extremely talented musician, playing anything strings like you, writing music like you. We know the challenges of making your dreams a reality without knowing the future.
We know your story & admire you greatly!!
Maybe sometime you & Andrew can meet.
Thank you so much for your inspiration & strength of spirit!
Keep up the good fight Jason! And all the best to the Becker family for all that you do for Jason.
Happy 50th Birthday Jason!!! You are my greatest inspiration. I am learning to play End of the Beginning in piano. Your chord progressions, your melodies, and all your compositions and albums are superb. I already bought your 3 CD’s, the DVD documentary, guitar picks,.. I admire you so much. I would love to meet you someday and thank you and your family in person how much you mean to me. I love you. You deserve the best in the world. Take care and Long Live Jason Becker and family and friends. 50 years more! Saludos desde España. Berni.
Thank you for our gift of Triumphant Hearts! I hope they dial in his breathing machine. Can they add oxygen to it. I know mom was always worried and focused on hers and I was always sure to tell her the water level was good as she couldn’t see it. After watching her go through it, I am ALWAYS so amazed at Jason’s ability to thrive. Please tell him we love him, are grateful for his music and wish him comfort and peace. He IS my human hero! I wish I could add some joy to his life as he has mine. We love our prints we bought from the gallery that Gary painted. The poems , especially Jason Street are very moving and telling of your experiences as a family. Watching my mother die of ALS was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Helplessly unable to give her the co.forts you have succeeded with. I think being 79 made a bid difference in here ability and desire to carry on. Jason, thank you for fighting the good fight. It has not been in vain. Your legacy has grown far beyond your music. You , unfortunately , have been the one to show us that we can live on dispite our ailments and still create and most importantly LOVE. I love you Jason.
Happy Birthday to a man who inspires many!
Happy Birthday Jason, Peace and Love from St Pete Beach, Florida

Happy Birthday Jason. Your continued fight and remaining a creative force in this world is an increble source of inspiration.
Blessings and Light,
From Rome, Italy, with a heart full of love and appreciation with all Becker’s Family thing and action : drawnings, guitars, albums, celebration, birthday party. We all talks about our difficulties and bad things in our life , but (it’s my Milestone to go through my, every day more than yesterday for my job, exausting life) if Jason did it , in His suffering, heavy and constantly even on the life line, i will do it : I HAVE TO DO IT and GO ON. Unluckly I’ll be not there for Your Birthday but I know that Your wonderful Family and a very great number of Friends (Many Times i Look Ritchie Kotzen and others playing music) will be with You to fill Your Heart with their immense Love. With my heart full of love for You and Your Wonderful Family I salute You and I hug You
Thanks so much for keeping us posted. I am so happy that he has done so much and still shares his beautiful soul with us. Happy Birthday Jason, much respect and love from New Zealand.
Though we’ve never met, I Think about you a lot Jason. Wishing you and your family well and kudos on the up and coming landmark..50!
I’m 51 and been a singer all my life but some throat problems have all but stopped my vocal follies, So I started playing guitar about 2.5 years ago In order to express my thoughts. It’s because of you, Marty, Steve Vai, Satch, Ygnwie, Eddie and the rest of the gang that I have my inspiration to play. Thank you for the gift you’ve given us and rock on brother. Btw, I love Valley of fire!
Happy Birthday Jason! that’s half a century of pure awesomeness!
My best wishes to Becker family!
I pray for a speedy recover!! I’m a drummer in Oregon –I share my newtritional secret that I just recently started regularly eating: Sprouts!! I feel much better when I eat a lot of live, raw, sprouted foods—lately I’ve been eating sprouted Alfalfa, broccoli, radish, mung bean, lentil, black sesame seed as a bed and then I put lightly grilled tofu over the top, with mushrooms and garlic and I swear it’s the best meal I eaten in a long time! It’s full of live enzymes and organic vitamins & pre-digested proteins, ect. It’s really a nutritional shortcut that everybody should try
I wish I can be with you all there. Good luck great hero!
Happy 50th Jason! Triumphant Hearts is an amazing album. Thank you for sharing your life through your music. God bless you.

Just wanted to say thank you to Jason. My mother succumbed to ALS in 2012. I am a guitar player and after reading Jason’s story in guitar player magazine shared it with my mom who had fairly recently been diagnosed with ALS. Jasons story was a source of strength and hope for mom and I just wanted to express my thanks. Happy birthday Jason. Love you man. Stay strong brother.

Happy 50th Jason! Triumphant Hearts is an amazing album with amazing musicians and guitarists who shared their love and talent to us fans here in the Philippines. God bless you.
Happy 50th you sexy man!
Thank you, Pat. Deen (Castronovo) and our son, Kyle .. now 28.. talk of Jason often. Kyle is absolutely in awe of Jason! When he tried to get his friends to watch “I’m not dead yet” he came to me confused by how people see Jason. “They see the film as sad, Mom .. like he’s handicapped. He’s not handicapped by my definition. He’s brilliant inspiration and has SO MUCH left to share”
As a Mom … I thank and admire .. you! You’re my inspiration! What a gift you brought to the world 50 years ago! Happy Birthday, Jason!! God Bless you!
PS .. Additional Movies.. This is the End.. What we do in the Shadows and Keanu. (Deen/Ky/My line up)
Happy 50 Jason!! Hope your day is awesome!!! Much love and prayers to you!
Happy Birthday Jason and blessings to you and your whole family!
