The hospitality community mourns the loss of local favorite, Jason Ponte, with a celebration at Ricky’s.

Jason Ponte was a well-loved hospitality professional throughout South Florida.  Many remember him for his humor, smile and hospitality at any establishment he worked at.

Jason left us too soon but his spirit lives on as bartenders and hospitality professionals paid tribute through Facebook and other social media platforms.

Colleagues have been reaching out to others to honor him in a special way. Jason was an organ donor and was able to help save other people’s lives and continue his legacy of love and generosity.  It was one of the most defining things about him and his character.  A Go Fund Me page was set up in his honor, click here to donate.

All proceeds will go to the FIU hospitality scholarship program.  All of his family are in hospitality from Jason to his father, mother, and brother.

His celebration will be held at Ricky’s on Miami Beach.  Tuesday, March 5th, 9PM-CLOSE.

“One special night to bring all of his friends together to meet & experience great stories of his amazing life.”

Partial sales will go to his Go Fund Me page.
