Jaden was born on February 8, 1994, in Havre to Vanessa Griggs and Jack Murray. A loving son, grandchild, big brother, nephew and cousin, Jaden wore a smile every day of his life. A fun-loving young man, he enjoyed spending time with his grandparents and family camping, fishing and playing cards. A proud brother, Jaden was looked up to by all of his younger cousins. He had a passion for auto mechanics gained from spending years with his father and friends on derby cars in the shop.

Jaden enjoyed working at Pizza Hut and spending his free time working on friends' and his own vehicles. He was an avid Broncos and Griz fan, loved Fords, and hunted every year with his grandfather and cousins. With friends, he was a night fisherman, played video games and enjoyed the outdoors. He graduated in May from Havre High School and recently traveled to Dearborn, Mich., to compete in the 2012 National Ford/AAA Student Auto Skills Competition after placing first at the State Competition in Helena. He was going to study Diesel Mechanics at MSU-Northern in the fall.
