John Dallas Jump, born Sept. 4, 1947, in Klamath Falls, passed away at home in Homer, Alaska, June 30, 2013, after a long battle with kidney failure.
He is survived by his soul mate and wife of 44 years, Charlene Jump; son Bill Jump and family; three daughters, Kathy Walton and family, Laurie Bray and family, and Teresa Jump and family; brother Joe Smith and family of Sun Valley, Nev.; and niece Brenda Crawford of Klamath Falls.
A memorial service was conducted in Homer and a family gathering will be at a future time in Klamath Falls.
"Jack" Jump was loved by all who knew him.
He was a Vietnam veteran, a heavy equipment operator for Weyerhaeuser Co. for over 20 years and much more than that. He was an artist, storyteller, craftsman and an avid outdoorsman.
He was an active member of the Mt. Mazama Mt. Men in the late 1980s to early 1990s before he and his wife, Charlene went north and settled down in Homer, where he was ship loading supervisor for Circle DE Pacific for about 12 years until the company sold and continued working in the timber industry until he retired due to health issues about five years ago.
He also was an active member for over 20 years of the Homer Elks Lodge, serving as lodge chaplain most of those years.
His greatest joys in life were his children and his grandchildren and his faith in God. He will be sorely missed by all.
