Introducing Jason Lee Freeman: A father, a husband, a Christian, a former professional boxer and Mixed Martial Arts fighter. He held 10 regional amateur championships across the State of Ohio before becoming professional. Amateur record of 112 wins and 5 loses. He continued advancing his classroom time with Grand Master David Reese, to achieve his honorable 1st degree black belt. Master Jason Lee now holds a 5th degree black belt at age 40.
And Jason is also very likely the biological Grandson of Charles Manson. Freeman’s father of record, Charles Manson Jr., committed suicide or so the record says.
Like some Greek tragedy, in search of the father story or maybe his Christian crusading motive is more like King Authur’s son Mordred who eventually kills his own father. Or will it be something more akin to when Luke Skywalker meets his own father?
These are the questions that raced across my minds when we heard that Freeman intends to meet Charles Manson face too face sometime this year or the next. In Joseph Campell’s “The Hero With A Thousand Face’s” we watch this ritual take place.
In this step the person must confront and be initiated by whatever holds the ultimate power in his or her life. In many myths and stories, this is the father, or a father figure who has life and death power. This is the center point of the journey. All the previous steps have been moving into this place, all that follows will move out from it. Although this step is most frequently symbolized by an encounter with a male entity, it does not have to be a male; just someone or thing with incredible power.
Imagine if you were the 3rd generation of a ‘Family’ most people in your native country believe to be cursed – Imagine if you were the grandson of a man so notorious most Americans see him as the very personification of incarnate EVIL. And – imagine if you were the son of a man very few people know anything about beyond repeating the official propaganda reports, that your ’father committed suicide’ and your ‘grandfather practiced witchcraft’.
Imagine - that 25 years since your father’s alleged ‘suicide’ you never saw your stepmother or your half-brother ever again. A family divided by national historic events. A family divided by the mainstream media and a President of the United States. All by a quintessential event out of all our histories, with the equivalent (in its impact on a nation) of an atomic bomb, metaphorically speaking.
Against all the odds, could you even dream to be a good family man? Could you be a good husband? A good father? Could you even possibly be a good grandson to the man who almost all of the people, controlled by the media in a nation, call a ‘Monster’? Would there be any reason why that would be a wise decision to make if you were a family man, to meet the man who your family forbids you almost all of your life to ever even mention?

Imagine - watching people for almost one half of a century profiting off of images, letters, music, etc., of your grandfather’s. Imagine - your parents giving up your true surname; and then you, grow up watching all the opportunistic people, over all the years, using your surname to sell death and fear?
Jason Freeman: “I made my mind up years ago to just stop asking. I left it alone through my childhood. As it surfaces back to the front of my mind in my early 30′s, I still make the choice not to watch the medias’ perspective and the past history of the case and events. I had a different view. – As I held a strong grudge against my grandfather for my father’s death. I still needed answers. Answers only the Old man could answer. Also, I needed to know my grandfather on a personal level. To see if he was what society portrayed him to be. Through time I got the answers I was seeking – About my father, the relationship with my grandmother. Most of all was this man a man I wanted to, or could even build a relationship with – From a grandson reaching out into the deep unknown. Questions only asked by a family member to another – Nothing to do with the murders, what, how, where or when. Deeper questions not yet raised by anyone. Questions from a young man whose father was gone due to suicide while a grandfather lays his head on a pillow and rests on a cement slab locked away from society.”
A SECRET NAME, all your life you’ve known, was yours. But a name absolutely owned by the ‘Public Domain’ and so far, used for over 400 books, countless movies, coveted music, underground art, infinite t-shirts, multitudinous bumper stickers, etc., ad nausea. A man who numerous rock bands, artists and writers continuously fictionalize with absolute impunity.
A man whose name is still in the news every two months for over the last 45 years. A man reportedly mentally ill, who has spent over half of a century locked up and much of that time in solitary confinement while that same man, (your grandfather) by law is not allowed to profit off of anything he creates, but anyone and everyone else can profit from the very lucrative marketing of the MANSON family name.
A man who has had no rights to his own name . . . for three generations. Would you want to dare to take back your surname and defend it?
Now imagine – yourselves, how titles about your grandfather like, ‘Attempting to Smuggle his Sperm out of Prison,’ and ‘Desperate to Have a Child,’ or even ‘Fiancee Wanted to Marry him for his Corpse’ would make you feel when the sources of those false stories are not biologically related to you or your grandfather, but have successfully manipulated the mainstream media into relating them to – as their fictional father and fantastic fiancee; wife; friend; guy in the cell doing life next to him, who? What? Where? Does that fall into the gray-area of ‘Fair Use’ laws or in inimitable hearsay? Are these people, “Best Selling Authors” and reputable news magazines mere pawns of the mind controlling mainstream media surrounding this one notorious mans’ sons and daughters?
Rolling Stone rag magazines, packaged, product, powerful, magnificent. Media minded power?
Imagine - if some guy who participated and got paid, in the ridiculous creations of some of the rudest stories, was the same guy you granted your own DNA for testing to prove him as your uncle and the biological son of your grandfather; who then four years after he was proven not be relatedto you (or by proxy your grandfather) he is still in the money-minds, media machine, making money from your surname and the bloodline of your fathers? Imagine – that!
Would you be mad? Would you want to pick a fight?
Jason has set several goals about going out, in search of his roots. Bootsie (pictured below) with Jason’s brother Paul White and father Charles Manson Jr., are two family members Jason hopes to reunite with this year. - Possibly with the help of someone reading this - Not having seen them since his father’s death has always left Jason with a lot of questions.
Paul & Bootsie with a very young Jason Freeman.
The well-being of Jason’s grandfather is the primary concern these days. How a Nation treats it’s convicts, it’s elderly, it’s mentally handicapped is the issue. Jason is seeking legal professionals interested in not only protecting but in regaining his grandfather’s rights; and his own rights to his biological surname and next-of-kin rights, seeking pro bono legal aid.
Meaning: the burden carried (for the public good). Someone well versed in almost all fields of law: Constitutional rights; civil rights law; criminal law; family law; mental health law; intellectual law and entertainment law.
