Condolences to SIRIUSXM SVP/GM, Music Programming STEVE BLATTER and his family on the passing of his brother JASON BLATTER on APRIL 14th at 45.
JASON BLATTER, who was born with holes in the walls of his heart chambers and cardiomyopathy, was one of the youngest heart transplant recipients at the age of 14 in 1984, received a second transplant in 2006, and was one of the longest surviving pediatric heart transplant recipients in history. His inspiring story was featured several times over the years, including in the NEW YORK POST in 2014 when his kidneys began to fail due to the medication necessary for his heart condition, and by the U.S. TROTTING ASSOCIATION covering his passion for harness racing.
