GLENROCK—Jason E. Tummond, 44, of Glenrock, WY passed away peacefully on October 13, 2019 at Wyoming Medical Center surrounded by friends and family.
Jason was born in Lakeland, FL on May 16, 1975 to Margie and David. The family including his two brothers, moved around before settling in Casper in 1981. As a young child, Jason was known around the neighborhood for his bright orange hair, pulling his red wagon, and occasionally stealing the neighbor’s mail. He was active in Special Olympics, Weight Lifting, Swimming, Bowling, Skiing and the KW marching band. He worked briefly at Albertson’s before being fired for “Smiling in the mirror, dancing down the aisles and shining the customer’s shoes”.
Jason was an inspiration to everyone who met him. He taught us to appreciate the simple things in life. His favorite things were rainbows, smelling flowers, art, children, holidays and most of all music. He had a pure, child-like spirit which never wavered, even during his many years of health issues.
He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Burton Hewett; grandfather, Leon Tummond; and grandmother, Rachael Tummond.
He is survived by his father, David and mother, Margie of Glenrock; his brother, Jeffrey and sister-in-law, Nancy; his brother, Jake and sister-in-law, Karli, of Portland, OR; his grandmother, Jean Hewett of Glenrock; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
A Funeral Service will be held 2:00 PM, Saturday, October 19, 2019 at the Glenrock Community Baptist Church, 301 South 2nd Street, Glenrock, WY. Interment will follow at the Glenrock Cemetery. A reception will be held for Jason at the Glenrock Senior Center.
