According to Romereim, the teens were leaving the mall on Friday night when one of those friends attacked the others with a knife.
"My nephew tried to protect his friends, one of which was a female. He was stabbed multiple times and had his throat slashed. He ran on pure adrenaline to find help even with being badly injured," Romereim said.
Jason needed emergency surgery and all of the victims were taken to the hospital with multiple injuries.
"Jason is the type of kid who will try to help you even if you have done him wrong in the past. He is a great kid who did not deserve something like this happening to him," Romereim said.
