Mailing strawberries

I know this sounds strange but I have to ask. Hopefully someone will actually know the answer.

I am spending the summer in Michigan where the strawberries are now in season. These berries are very red, very juicy and unbelievably delicious so I've made a few pints of strawberry sauce to put over shortcake, ice cream, etc. My question:

Can put the sauce in jars and ship them home next day air? I would be adding 3 Tablespoons of sugar to each quart so I'm hoping that will act as a preservative. I plan to ship them to my son's house and he will be freezing them for me. I really want these berries since the ones I get at home (Las Vegas) are nowhere near as juicy or as good. What do you think?
