Jason Lynn Thiriot

LAS VEGAS, NV - Jason Lynn Thiriot, age 40, had a cardiac arrest and made his final hook shot in this earthly life. He returned to his loving Heavenly Father on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 21, 2015. Jason was born on September 18, 1974 in St. George, Utah to Roger Dean and Bonnie Bracken Thiriot. He married his Sweet Pea, Crystal Whitehead, in the St. George Utah Temple on March 15, 1997 for time and all eternity. Jason’s early years were spent in Las Vegas, Nevada and later in St. George, Utah. He graduated from Dixie High School and served as a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Bahia Blanca Argentina mission. He continued to serve faithfully his entire life.  He was a true disciple of Jesus Christ - whether as a scout master, Elders’ Quorum President, Bishopric member, Sunday School teacher, youth leader or home teacher. Each call to serve was fulfilled with love and enthusiasm. Jason spent countless hours in the service of his friends, family and neighbors. He graduated from Dixie College and the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV). Jason was employed as a Natural Resource Analyst for the Colorado River Commission of Nevada. Jason was an Eagle Scout and served honorably as a translator/interpreter in the Utah Army National Guard 141st Battalion. One of Jason’s many talents was the ability to organize and motivate all those around him to accomplish things which would otherwise seem unattainable. He often said, “Many hands make light work!” His infectious laugh and sense of humor could not be denied. He had a quick smile for all those lucky enough to be in his presence. Jason had the ability to make each individual feel as though they were the most important person in the room. His family was the absolute focus and priority of his life. Jason was a dedicated, kind, loving, devoted husband, father, brother and uncle. He supported his wife and children in every way as a father, role model and friend.  Jason was the light of his children’s lives.  He was truly their hero in every way, but mostly because of his rock-solid testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ and the way he led his family as a righteous priesthood holder. Jason is now reunited with his parents, Roger Dean Thiriot and Bonnie LaRee Bracken Thiriot. He is survived by his wife, Crystal Thiriot; his children, Jayden (15), Bonnie (13), Carter (10), Wade (7) and Brooke (3); and his band of brothers, Bryan (Kathy), Nathan (Alysia),  Bryce (Susan), Jarren and Jon. Viewings will be held on Thursday, June 25 from 5-7 p.m. (MST) at the Heideman Hughes Mortuary, 1037 East 700 South, St. George, Utah, and Friday, June 26 from 5-7 p.m. (PST) at the North Las Vegas Nevada LDS Stake Center, 50 East Azure Avenue, North Las Vegas, Nevada. Funeral services will be held Saturday, June 27 at 10 a.m. (PST) at the North Las Vegas Nevada LDS Stake Center, 50 East Azure Avenue, North Las Vegas, Nevada. Interment will take place Saturday, June 27, at 4 p.m. (MST) in the Pine Valley Cemetery, Pine Valley, Utah.  Scouts are welcome to attend in uniform to pay tribute to Jason’s love of scouting and country.
