Once upon a time, there were four guys (Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie) who discovered they shared a love for music, and then got together to become their idols – The Four Freshman, The Hi-Lo’s and The Crew Cuts. Rehearsing in the basement of Smudge’s family’s plumbing supply company they became “Forever Plaid”. On the way to their first big gig, the “Plaids” are slammed broadside by a school bus and killed instantly. It is at the moment when their careers and lives end, that the story of Forever Plaid begins….

The Jason G. Fordham Memorial Endowment Fund was established following Jason’s death on September 24, 2013. He was 39 at the time of his death. Almost 4-years earlier, Jason had been diagnosed with an inoperable malignant tumor, and every treatment used over that 4-year period proved unsuccessful in reducing or treating the cancer.
Jason was a supporter of the arts in Rome and Floyd County, Georgia, particularly related to community theatre and the preservation of the Historic DeSoto Theatre. Jason was a member of both the Rome Little Theatre Board of Directors and the Historic DeSoto Theatre Foundation Board at the time of his death. Jason had served as president of the Rome Little Theatre Board of Directors from 2009-2011.
In addition to his love of theatre as an actor, director, and producer, Jason was also an avid reader, game designer, singer, and writer. The two organizations to which he was so dedicated continue to miss his creative and intellectual abilities.
The Jason G. Fordham Memorial Endowment Fund was established to not only honor Jason’s contributions to theatre and serve as his legacy, but it will also provide on-going support for Rome Little Theatre, Inc. and the Historic DeSoto Theatre Foundation, Inc., both of which are 501(c)(3) organizations.
Your donation to the Jason G. Fordham Memorial Endowment Fund will be held in trust to generate interest and dividends for equal distribution to Rome Little Theatre, Inc. and the Historic DeSoto Theatre Foundation, Inc. to be used in whatever manner each organization deems appropriate to advance the arts in Rome and Floyd County.
