The Jason Hanson - Jared E. Shafer Story: "Special Administrator" Jared E. Shafer takes house and inheritance from 24-year-old man with cerebral palsy
The word sociopath is a noun meaning: Someone whose social behavior is extremely abnormal. Sociopaths are interested only in their personal needs and desires, without concern for the effects of their behavior on others.
This is the story of how Jason Hanson lost his inheritance, and hopefully its telling will lead to the prosecution of the sociopaths who profited from Jason's suffering. In 2008, Jason's father Gerhard Hanson died without a will, but before his death told his only child, then-18 year old Jason who was born with cerebral palsy, that he would someday inherit his 1257 square foot three bedroom, two bath single story ADA compliant town house, built in 1992 in a gated community in Southwest Las Vegas, along with approximately $50,000 in savings. Six years after his father's death, Jason is almost penniless, lives at taxpayer's expense in a group home with four other special needs residents, and is a client at *Opportunity Village. This week, Jason told INSIDE VEGAS that Jared Shafer of Professional Fiduciary Services of Nevada, Inc. never gave him his inheritance. Sadly, this was not the first time such a heinous accusation was made by an heir of one of Shafer's scandal plagued Clark County Family Court appointed wards or special needs trustees.
Several years before Gerhard Hanson's death, his son - then a minor - became a special needs ward of the State of Nevada because his father's acute alcoholism kept him from adequately caring for his son's needs. For several years Jason, who is very intelligent, was shuffled between Child Haven, foster care, and group homes. Today, Jason, a part time college student, is just learning what happened to his father's estate including his childhood home that he had every legal right to inherit and live in. Instead, according to Jason, his father's $50,000 life's savings is missing, and Shafer sold Jason's house for fifty cents on the dollar without his knowledge or consent, and kept the sale proceeds saying they were used to make the house salable.
