Jason Wayne Shaw, devoted father, spouse, son, brother, nephew, cousin and friend passed away far too young on April 28, 2021 in Aurora, Utah at the age of 42. He was born March 1, 1979, in Aurora, the son of Mike Wayne and Joanne Mills Shaw.
Jason married Jerica Obert on August 15, 2009 for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake Temple.
Jason was an avid outdoorsman who loved camping, hunting, motorcycles and side-by-sides and loved sharing these hobbies with his family. From his earliest age he had a habit of taking things apart to see how they worked. Luckily, he was also gifted and nearly always figured how to put things back together to make them work better. He shared this skill with friends and neighbors, always willing to help fix things, particularly computers.
Jason was an incredible father who was frequently accompanied by his kids as he fixed things around the house and for friends and neighbors. He patiently taught his kids how to help, even when it made the work take longer.
Jason worked for Utah Independent Bank in Salina, UT where he was known for his jokes and hard work.
An active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Jason served in many callings throughout his life. He was an Eagle Scout and served a mission in Baltimore, Maryland.
He is survived by his spouse Jerica; children: Daxton (8), Tyton (5) and Jaydria (18 months) all of Aurora; parents Mike and Joanne Shaw, Aurora; in-laws: Doug and Gaylene Obert, Riverton; sisters: Jamie Shaw, Washington; Nicole (Travis) Christiansen, Lehi; brother and sister-in-law: Dustin and Julie Obert, Herriman; and nieces/nephew: Maggie, Trace and Lucy Christiansen, Lehi; and countless aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents: Carol Wayne and Arva Shaw, and Eugene and Lucy Mills.
