Jason Austin of Davison Township celebrated his 100th birthday Feb. 20 with an outdoor birthday event in his driveway. Well-wishers stopped and drove by his home to honor the World War II veteran, and several police officers from Davison Township, the City of Davison and the Village of Otisville stopped by to offer him a salute. Jason was born in Flint in 1921. He served in the U.S. Army Ordinance Base Company in Saipan during World War II. He retired from Buick as a senior buyer after 40 years of service and is an active member of the Retired Men’s Fellowship of Greater Flint.
