Jason A Swanson was born to Lisa Marie (Li) Swan and Aaron Gadberry on February 15, 1994 in Anacortes, Washington. Jason died suddenly on June 1, 2018 in Sedro-Woolley, WA. Jason grew up in Sedro-Woolley, raised by Li Swan and Will Swanson. Jason attended Sedro Woolley High School and State Street High School.
Jason had a big heart and is remembered for going out of his way to help others, even when he had unmet needs of his own. Jason had many “homes” where he would pitch in and help out. He was also fiercely loyal, jumping to the defense of his friends, family, and girlfriend whenever it was needed. He showed up for his people, even though he didn’t drive. Jason often worked as a handyman, sometimes worked construction, and most recently worked as a snake wrangler. Jason had a brilliant mind, and was often found researching topics of interest. He enjoyed sharing what he had learned with those around him.
Jason is preceded in death by his uncle Jason Aaron Stansbury, for whom he is named, and by a grandfather, Warren Hill.
Jason is survived by his younger brother, Xavier M Swanson, his parents, Li Swan, Will Swanson, and Aaron Gadberry, by his grandparents Ruth and Karen Rook, Robert Stansbury, Jim and Ilona Swanson, Kathy Hill, and Darlene Gadberry, by his great grandmother Wilma Stansbury, and by the love of his life, Jasmin Pickin.
