Cassia Tavares


Cassia Tavares Biography


Jason Hitch was a 38-year-old from Spring Hill, FL, and Cassia Tavares was a 23-year-old from Curitiba, Brazil, when she arrived in America in a K-1 visa.

The couple originally met on Facebook while Cassia was in an online relationship with Jason's friend.

Once that relationship ended, Jason and Cassia sparked up a romance.

Cassia relocated to the United States and moved in with Jason and his father; however, they separated in 2017.

In early 2018, Jason filed for divorce amid accusations of domestic violence, but he reportedly withdrew the petition in March 2018.

However after failing to work out their issues, Jason filed for divorce again in September 2018 and the couple's divorce was reportedly quickly finalized about a month later in October 2018.

In December 2021, Jason died at the age of 45 from coronavirus.

Cassia admitted she was "shocked" to hear about her ex-husband's sudden and unexpected death.

"It's always sad when someone you spent part of your life with stops breathing," Cassia wrote Wednesday on her Instagram Stories.

"I guess one could never be prepared for that. I wasn't, today. When I started receiving messages, I thought it was a joke. I'm shocked. My condolences to his family and friends. Rest In Peace, Jason."

Afterward, Jason's sister, Shannon Speagle, urged everyone to get vaccinated against the COVID-19 coronavirus that took her brother's life.

Shannon told TMZ that Jason was not unvaccinated and had considered himself an anti-vaxxer.

Shannon, who is vaccinated, said her brother had assumed he'd be able to fight the virus quickly and easily because he was a healthy and fairly young individual.

Jason had allegedly even sent his sister misinformation about the vaccine supposedly not being effective, which resulted in a disagreement between the siblings.

Shannon told the website that during her final conversation with Jason, she begged him to get vaccinated because he had been planning to visit her and her children.

Jason had allegedly refused to get vaccinated and decided to instead just not to visit his family, and then he became ill.
