Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet

by JCC Staff

It is the 1980s, and 19-year-old Jason Becker has it all. 

He is a flash guitarist, has a supportive, loving family and is about to begin one of the most sought after gigs in rock music – guitarist for the David Lee Roth World Tour. 

Becker is also likeable, creative and cute.

Then he discovers that he has ALS, otherwise known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. But that is not the end of Jason Becker’s life – in some ways it is the beginning.

Becker's story is poignant and entertaining, full of inspiration and great music. 

Time and time again people have proven that with perseverance and dedication one can thrive with difficulties that seem unimaginable to most. Jason Becker is one of those people. Jason faces the life altering obstacle of ALS head on. He maintains his sense of humor, writes music and serves as a role model to those around him. 

The JCC is proud to partner with the ALS Association, Indiana Chapter, to bring
Becker's story to the community when we screen the film Jason Becker: Not Dead Yet. 

The event is scheduled for Thursday, August 21, at 7 p.m. and is presented in coordination with the Heartland Film Festival. Profits will be donated to the ALS Association, Indiana Chapter.
