Jason Todd Titmus


Born 7-23-78, passed away suddenly and way too soon on 10-18-2014 in Big Sky, Montana. Jason is survived by his parents, Caroline and Terry Titmus, his brothers Joshua, Jennifer and their sons William and Dakota of Kettle Falls and Braden, Jennifer and their children Kolee and Connor of Colville, his fiancée Eva Ocvirk of Slovenia, and many aunts, uncles and cousins. After growing up and attending school in Lake Stevens, WA, Jason lived most of his adult life as a “free spirited gypsy”, travelling all across the country, working as a carpenter, a cowboy, a guide, a boat mechanic and a bartender from Washington to Florida to Chicago and the southwest and everywhere in between. Jason was ready to transition his lifestyle and he was looking forward to returning to Washington with Eva to share its beauty with her, put down some roots and incorporate her into the family that he was so proud of and had told her so much about,

Jason ‘s commitment to grab all that life had to offer with both fists and wring everything fun and beautiful from whatever he was doing are his legacy and calling card. His ability to talk to any person that he encountered throughout his life of travel and exploration connected him to many people from throughout the world and even those that he encountered briefly, immediately became his friends forever and he enjoyed reconnecting with these folks in often unexpected ways… Jason’s desire to learn although non-traditional, led him to seek and discover the wonder of nature. His companions on these adventures were drawn into his infectiously enthusiastic and inquisitive approach to everything that he did. Jason never ceased to challenge and question beliefs, lifestyles, and particularly authority and he loved the woods, the high desert, and his beloved Eva with all of his heart. He sought knowledge and acceptance until the day that he left this world, and although things were not always as he wanted them to be, he took the time to make things a little better than they were before he encountered them with a kind word, a willing and helpful hand, and a smile, a snicker or an exuberant belly laugh. He was often known to plant a wry smile on his face, scratch his head, and vocally opine about the trials and tribulations that life and his fellow human beings dealt to him with friends around a camp fire at the end of the day only to get up the next morning, grab a giant cup of coffee and have at it again.

Jason’s time was short, but he packed more living into his time on earth than most people do if they live to be 100. He was greatly loved and will be sorely missed by those that were fortunate enough to know him for who he was although that was probably different for everyone.

Jason was our son: we loved him and are very proud of him.

Jason’s family and friends from throughout his life are invited to share thoughts, stories and memories at a gathering in his honor on Sunday, 11-2-2014 at Legion Hall, 145 Alverson, Blvd ., Everett WA. 98201 from 1pm to 330pm or to share with us all on his facebook page.
