Thanksgiving was the first holiday Jason had to spend away from his children, Megan told ABC6/FOX28.
You have those things you always do as a family, Megan said as tears filled her eyes, Ask anyone, I'm not a cook. I can bake, but when it comes to cooking, he calls himself Chef Boyar-Reed. It's because he's an amazing cook.
Megan said she and the boys regularly Skype with Jason. She even sets up the camera to face the television so Jason can watch Ohio State University football games, even though, theyre often late at night.
