- About Us
On April 19, 2019, Jacob Thomas Paskvan left our loving arms and returned to our loving Lord. We were blessed to have him in our lives for 14 short years. He had a beautiful soul and a loving heart. He was always smiling and asking how everyone else was doing.
Jacob was born on June 4, 2004, in Salt Lake City, Utah to Tom and Teri Paskvan. He was the little brother to his proud big sisters Kaitlin and Megan Paskvan. He was the love of our lives. He lived his whole life in Stansbury Park, Utah. He attended Stansbury High School as a freshman.
He learned to skate when he was 2 years old and played hockey ever since. He was on various recreation, travel and high school hockey teams including the Salt Lake Lightening, Utah Jr. Grizzlies and Tooele County Outlaws High School team. He loved playing hockey as a defensemen and made lifelong friendships with his teammates. He will always be our #88.
Jacob was at home in nature. He loved being outside from hiking Desert Peak to mountain biking in our beautiful canyons. He got his first fishing pole when he was 3 and loved fishing for bass from his backyard. He loved to hunt and shot a buck on his very first hunt.
He is survived by parents: Tom and Teri Paskvan and sisters Kaitlin and Megan Paskvan of Stansbury Park, Utah; Grandparents Ruth Jones of Tooele, UT, Sally Paskvan of Stansbury Park, UT, and Tom & Katie Paskvan of Osceola, WI; and countless other family and friends.
Jacob’s viewing will be on Wednesday, April 24, 2019, from 3-5pm at St. Marguerite’s Catholic Church 15 South 7th Street, Tooele, Utah. Funeral Mass will follow at 5pm. There will be a gathering at the family home afterward in Stansbury Park to celebrate his life.
He will be loved and missed by all for the rest of our lives.
