On Saturday, April 17,2021, Jason Hammer passed peacefully in his sleep at the age of 49.
Father, Son, Brother, Uncle, Nephew, Cousin and friend. Jason Hammer (Jay) was all of these things and more. He was born Jason Michael Hammer in Wheat Ridge, Colorado on February 28, 1972. He is survived by his three children; Taylor, Derek and Dylan. He is also survived by his mother and father Robert and Karla, brother Blake and his two sons, Michael and Matthew and his sister Heidi and her daughter, Karleigh. He also leaves behind his girlfriend Kristi and many cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends.
The family left Colorado in 1983, moving to Tacoma, WA before settling in Gig Harbor, WA shortly after. Jason graduated Gig Harbor High School in 1990. Upon graduation, Jason took after his father and began his career in glazing and construction. He was a very hard worker and had the respect of many of his co-workers.
He was well-known for not only his work ethic, but his contagious smile and fun-loving personality. He loved to tell a good story and to make people laugh. He could find the humor in almost any situation. He was always smiling, and people were drawn to him. He loved it when family and friends could get together and was the driving force behind many of these occasions.
On any given Sunday, you’d find him watching football. Either cheering on or being an armchair quarterback for his favorite football team, the Denver Broncos. He loved all things Broncos. You could ask him any question about them, or any football team for that matter, and guaranteed he’d have an answer for you. He was a walking encyclopedia for statistics. We always told him he should be a commentator for the sport.
Jason, we will miss you forever and we’ll carry you in our hearts today and always.
I invite anyone reading this to please include your favorite memory of Jason. Maybe a story he told or anything that reminds you of him.
