Jae G Heiner was called home on September 29th, 2021 after a struggle with Covid. Born in 1955 to Ted and Janeene Heiner in Afton, Wyoming, Jae grew up on the farm and dreamed from a young age of building satellites. After serving a mission to Korea for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he earned a BS and MS in Electrical Engineering at BYU, where he met and married his wife Lillis, and began a prolific career in aerospace working on satellite communications.

He was heavily involved in Boy Scouts, receiving the Silver Beaver award in 2017. He also spent many years researching and editing a new science textbook with colleagues, The Universal Model. Jae’s life is a legacy of the pursuit of knowledge, hard work, family, and devoted church service.

He is missed by his wife, eight beloved children, eleven grandchildren, and a multitude of lives touched by his integrity, love, service and his testimony of Jesus Christ.

The funeral service will be held on October 9th at 11:00am at 1550 N. Val Vista Dr. in Mesa, with visitation beginning at 9:30am. Flowers may be sent to Bunker Family Mortuary, 480-964-8686.
