Jamin Vaun Mikesell, our beloved husband, son, brother, uncle, and friend, returned home on March 20, 2019. Jamin was born on November 18, 1991 in Salt Lake City, Utah to parents Annie Stauber and Michael Mikesell.

Jamin graduated from Riverton High School in 2010, served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Argentina Bahia Blanca Mission (2011-2013), then received his Bachelor of Science degree in Professional Sales from Weber State University in 2017. He married the love of his life, Jayna Bell, on November 13, 2015 in the Ogden Utah Temple.

Jamin will be remembered for his love of water sports, disco skating, dancing, and making people laugh. Jamin lit up any room in a matter of seconds with his charming smile and engaging sense of humor. He was loved by all who met him and had a deep desire to help anyone in need. He craved salt water in his hair and loved to attend, analyze, and think about all sports.

Above all, this fun-loving soul cared about spending time with family and friends. Jamin is survived by his wife, Jayna Mikesell; his parents, Annie and Patrick Stauber, and Michael and Jenni Mikesell; his twin brother, Kyler Mikesell; sister, Kelsee Mikesell; step-siblings, Derrick, Travis, Spencer, Lauren, and Kasidy; in-laws, David and Christie Bell; and countless friends and relatives who will miss him dearly.

    I met Jamin through the Admissions Office at Weber State. I came on as a full time staff and loved working with him every minute. He brought so much laughter and light into the office. Admissions definitely felt a little more empty when he moved to Arizona. But that hole that has grown immensely since his passing. He is a part of the Weber Admissions team. He was so so loved. I’m sorry for his loss. Just remember, if you need ANYTHING, you have that family right there to help.
