Jason C. Swigart, 30, Camp Verde, Ariz., passed on to Heaven Sunday, Sept. 7, 2014, at the Flagstaff Medical Center, as a result of injuries sustained from an off-road vehicle accident Saturday, Aug. 30.
He came into this world March 20, 1984, in DuBois, as the son of Jeffrey and Diane Swigart, of Cottonwood, Ariz.
Jason was a proud veteran of the United States Air Force and was awarded Airman of the Quarter at Luke Air Force Base.
In addition to a promising career as a heavy equipment mechanic with Fann Contracting of Prescott, Ariz., Jason also owned his own metal fabrication company W&R Enterprises. Being a lifelong entrepreneur of all things metal and mechanical, he also held jobs in the mining and natural gas industry as well as within the off-road industry.
Jason is one of the original members of the Arizona Undertakers 4x4 Club and enjoyed rock crawling as well as competing in the Ultra4 and WeRock DirtRiot series of off road racing. Jason enjoyed hunting and camping, and was a talented metalworker with amazing artistic and design skills.
Jason was a loving and caring husband to his wife Heather, and an amazing father to their two beautiful daughters, Wylee Louise, 3, and Raelynn Marie, 1, of Camp Verde, Ariz. He is also survived by parents, Jeff and Diane of Cottonwood, Ariz.; sister, Leah Tallon and husband, Jeff, of Alisa Viejo, Calif.; grandparents, Ned and Joan Swigart of Brookville, Myron Smith of Brooksville, Fla., Carl Anderson of Monicello, Ky.; aunt, Cindy Radaker and husband, Bob, of Brookville; uncle, Myron Smith and wife, Lori, of Monroe, Wash.; and aunt, Lisa Pangallo and husband, Brian, of Powell, Wyo.
In addition to his family, Jason leaves behind a list of friends too long to mention here.
Jason was the type of person that would drop anything at any time to help someone in need. Many of his lifelong friendships started just that way, as Jason helping a stranger. Jason was his own person and his unique character and humor filled the room whenever he entered.
We all have fond memories of the never ending smile that was always on his face! Jason made a positive impact on everyone that he came into contact with and will be missed by so many.
In lieu of flowers and in the spirit of what Jason did his whole life, we will hope that you will do an unexpected and unsolicited act of kindness for someone in need.
