Jason Mueller

Jason Mueller has been a lifelong resident of Greenwood, Indiana. He taught fifth grade for 14 years and physical education for three years at Center Grove schools. Due to health complications, his fourth year of teaching PE has been put on hold along with his role as the public announcer at most varsity athletic events, “Voice of The Trojans.”

Jason has had ulcerative colitis for over 13 years that has shrunk and scarred his colon so bad it’s no longer doing its job and needs to be removed. He also has primary sclerosis cholangitis which is a progressive disease of the liver and gallbladder characterized by inflammation and scarring of the bile ducts which normally allow bile to drain from the gallbladder. This disease will cause the liver to give out within 10 years and he will need a liver transplant.

Due to a complication with a medical procedure for his bile duct, he now has necrotizing pancreatitis. Parts of his pancreas are dead that will require surgery to remove and prevent abscesses as well as infection.

Not only has he survived sepsis twice, but for the past two years, he has survived acute pancreatitis that has resulted in too many abscesses and drains to count.

Jason has been in and out of the hospital over the past few months. During his most recent hospital stay, his legs began to swell as blood clots set in. He had to have a thrombectomy to help relieve pain and swelling in his right leg. To further complicate his condition, a mass was found in his colon that is cancerous.

Unfortunately, Jason’s digestive system and overall health is unable to take and overcome cancer treatments at this time. The Mueller family is hopeful that his body will start healing and get to a place where he will be able to handle surgery that will remove his colon and pancreatic necrosis.

This surgery will have a significant recovery period but Jason and his family are optimistic that this will give him the chance to have an outlook at a better quality of life. He is looking forward to pain free days where he can enjoy time with his family, friends and students. He states, “People ask me how I keep going, how I continue to fight and move forward. All it takes every morning is one look at our family picture, one look at the stacks of cards and loads of donations from the people in Center Grove, and I pick myself up and continue. My family and this community are everything to me.”

Our team asks that everyone please come Klean to Contribute with Kopetsky Auto Wash on March 9th, and help us support a great person that has been a role model and positive influence for many CG kids and families.
