Jason Dee Swope Obituary
1978 ~ 2013
Our brother, son, cousin, grandson, nephew, and uncle Jason slipped unexpectedly but peacefully from this life into God's care on October 21, 2013 at home in Sandy, Utah at the age of 35.
Born on April 2, 1978 to Terry and Vicki Swope in Salt Lake City, he was the fifth of five children. Although his life was full of challenges, Jason was kind, loyal, faithful, hard-working, strong, obedient, and funny. He enjoyed reading books, playing guitar, listening to classic rock, spending time with his family, watching videos, and baking the world's best chocolate chip cookies. We were always amazed at his detailed memories of his childhood on Crestwood Drive. His favorite shows were "Seinfeld" and "The Simpsons,"; he often added punchlines from the shows into his conversation. His passion was always the gospel and family. The principle joy of his life was gathering with family for holidays, birthdays, or just weekend visits.
Jason graduated from Hillcrest High School in 1996 and earned his Eagle Scout award the same year. He was a member of the LDS East Millcreek 10th Ward and Union 3rd Ward. He helped beautify the Salt Lake Temple gardens as a service missionary in 1997. For 11 years, Jason worked diligently as a janitor at the University of Utah. He also helped his parents in too many ways to number.
Jason is survived by his parents Terry and Vicki Swope, sisters Lori Ann Block (Randall), Jana Whitley (Mark), and Sherri Michie (John), brother Michael Swope (Andrea), grandmother Susana Doty, and six nieces and four nephews. We'll never forget you, J-man.
Funeral service will be Saturday, October 26 at 10am at the Sandy Utah Cottonwood Creek Stake LDS meetinghouse, 1535 East Creek Road, Cottonwood Heights, Utah with a viewing one hour prior. Interment following service next to Grandma Lila at Tabiona City Cemetery, Tabiona, Utah.
