Jason Deed Griffiths

June 18, 1978 — January 29, 2023

Jason Deed Griffiths, 44, our loving husband, father, son, and friend returned to our Heavenly Father on January 29, 2023 at his home in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania from a brief, but valiant battle with brain cancer. Jason, the firstborn of Curtis George and DeAnn Purser Griffiths arrived on Father’s Day, June 18, 1978 in Logan, Utah. Jason grew up in and around Cache Valley, Utah. Due to the persistence of his mother, Jason was an Eagle Scout and loved time outdoors. He attended Wellsville Elementary and Mountain Crest High School where he played the saxophone in the marching band, played in the Chess club, goofed around with friends, and graduated. He served faithfully in the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania Mission, and continued his service throughout his life in various positions and callings for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He went on to earn his Masters Degree in Business Administration from Keller Graduate School. He loved to play softball, cards, checkers, chess, and any game where he could best his opponent. He often resorted to psychological tactics and wasn’t afraid to intimidate his opponents.  At times, he was a show-off and loved when others, including his grandma, would come watch him play. He loved a good baseball game, and over the last few years was working toward attending a game at each major league stadium across the country.

He met his eternal companion and love of his life, Janae Andreasen, while they were both working at Walmart in Logan, Utah.  After months of flirting and talking back and forth, Jason finally got the hint, and asked Janae out on a date to a Grizzlies hockey game. Their courtship blossomed, and a year later they were married on February 16, 2001 in the Logan LDS temple. They were blessed with four beautiful children; Raydin (19), Jayde (17), Oakley (15) and Stryder (12). Through his actions, Jason was an example of Christ-like service to all around him. He loved serving with the LDS missionaries and was fond of taking his children with him anytime he helped another.  His service was exemplary and he knew the value of a person was far more than their current circumstances. He had a testimony of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and acted accordingly. He always encouraged his children to stay close to the Lord and to trust in Him in all matters. Jason and his family lived in various places in Northern Utah until 2018 when they moved to Richland Center, Wisconsin for Jason’s job with Schreiber Foods. Jason enjoyed the work he did there and was excited and happy when an opportunity arose to transfer to the plant in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania. There he could show his family the areas he served in on his mission. Moving across the country was hard, but Jason and his wife told their children their circle of friends was only getting bigger and that together they could do hard things. Jason enjoyed photography and especially enjoyed doing it with his dad and with good friends. He found a passion for motorcycles and enjoyed riding with good friends. Music played an important part of his life and he introduced his children to all genres; music always seemed to be playing in the home or in the car. Jason knew the value of time and made the most of his by loving and caring for all those around him.

He is survived by his wife, Janae Andreasen, and their four children: Raydin, Jayde, Oakley, and Stryder of Chambersburg, PA. He is also survived by his parents; Curtis and DeAnn Griffiths of Logan, UT, siblings: Kate (Jamison) Sellers of Orlando, FL, Tiffany (Jonathon) Gleason of Boise City, OK, Shawn (Telene) Griffiths of Laramie, WY, TesAnn (Gary) Peel of Hyrum, UT, and Jasmine (Alix) Sorensen of Hyrum, UT. He is also survived by his grandmother, Floris Chadwick Purser of Preston, ID. He was preceded in death by his sister Rozlyn, and brother George Lyman and grandparents Delmon Joy and Kathleen Barfus Griffiths and Arland Gloyde Purser.
