Jason M. Artim, 33 of Bethlehem, died on Tuesday July 18, 2017. Jason was born in Allentown, son of James M. Artim of Bethlehem and the late Deborah (Kuzma) Artim.
Jason was a chef at Apollo Grill in Bethlehem. He enjoyed cooking and thrived in the kitchen. Food was his passion, calling, and career. It brought him great joy to share his love of food with family and friends.
He was a member of NA and found himself drawn to helping others with their fight. Jason’s journey was filled with love and encouragement from many, especially from his partner Jamie Romero. That journey recently brought Jason back to the church of St. Michael’s, where he found an accepting and loving church family with whom he shared his faith.
