JAWSAT was never "alive".  I have found the following keps.

ASUSAT-1
1 26061U 00004A   00029.19550033 -.00038946  00000-0 -13890-1 0   148

OCS

FALCONSAT
1 26064U 00004D   00029.05615445 -.00001789  00000-0 -61584-3 0   112

JAWSAT
1 26065U 00004E   00029.05563575  .00002078  00000-0  75457-3 0    90

MINOTAUR R/B

So all four objects were deployed from JawSat and JawSat was deployed from
the Minotaur R/B.  At least we have 6 object in space from this launch.

Which small satellites are you refering to?

All remaining satellites will be deployed from OPAL.
