On October 21, 2020 our whole world was shattered, by the unexpected and tragic passing of our Jayders.

Jayden was the most kind and caring person to everyone around him. His smile would light up any room. He had the biggest heart imaginable. You could always see it through his eyes. His smirky little grin and gentle tenderness will be deeply missed. If you knew Jayden you would know that he had an amazing sense of humor. He loved to make people laugh. He was so handsome, earning the nickname of "model".

Our world is darkened by his sudden absence from our lives. We will forever remember our Jayders as the most patriotic person you could find. He proudly represented the red, white and blue across his heart. He loved the great outdoors and spending time camping, fishing and being with his family and friends. His favorite days at the lake were spent with his brothers Preston and Jordan. He was especially protective of his little sister Makaylah whom he adored and didn't miss a day without a Facetime call or text. If you were lucky enough to know him, you knew he loved his family with every fiber of his being and you felt comfort in his presence.

Jayden was a senior at Taylorsville High School and he had a passion in working with his hands and hoped to one day to become a welder. His most prized possession was his 1991 Jeep Cherokee. He spent countless hours fixing and modifying his jeep.

We will miss our sweet Jayden every second of everyday. We pray that he is at peace in heaven.

Jayden is survived by his father Mike (Amanda); mother Sabrina (Michael); siblings Azia, Preston, Jordan, Makaylah, Damon and Makynlee; grandparents Michelle and Adam Houasli, Lynn Itchon, Scott and Krystal Benson, Dee and Roger Forgeron, Ted and Ann Itchon; great-grandmother Carol Moore; aunts and uncles Liala and Zeth Docter, Riaz and ZebUn Ahmad, MandeeLynn Swensen; cousins Avyah and Zarah; dear friend Nina Kirby, and many other aunts, uncles, cousins, and a small group of close knit friends.

A Graveside memorial will be held on Saturday, November 7, 2020 at 3:00 pm. At Larkin Sunset Garden located at 1950 East 10600 South Sandy, Utah.
