Episode The Sleepover
Status Alive

Jason Beaudry is the husband of Holly Beaudry and the father of Neil and Brandi Beaudry.

On the outside, Jason seemed like an upstanding upper-class citizen. Behind closed doors, he was a parent who was either indifferent to his children at best or abusive at worst. The night that Rita Baxter died, he and his wife returned home early and found that their daughter had a sleepover without permission. He intimidated Rita, but ultimately sent her home. Unbeknownst to him, Rita returned and witnessed him strong-arm his son into waterboarding Brandi as punishment. 

Years later in 2004, Jason and Holly were interviewed when the police considered Neil a suspect after he killed another woman. They denied meeting Rita, not wanting the police to find out about their abusive behavior. After Tiffany O'Connell testified seeing Jason return home the night Rita died (as well as menacing her), he and Holly were brought in. Jason admitted that he had gone over the line by menacing Rita, but denied killing her. He tried to justify his behavior by talking about how Brandi had drowned their pet cat when she was young.

After Ariel Shuman was arrested, the Beaudrys tried to visit their son in the mental hospital. Brandi, who was also visiting, didn't want to see her parents. Detective Scotty Valens agreed and slammed the door in their faces. It's unknown if they faced charges for abusing their kids.
