Jason Kenneth Muncy

04/19/1971 - 01/24/2022

Jason Kenneth Muncy, husband, father, son, brother, cousin, and friend to all, passed away peacefully in his sleep at his home in Mesa, AZ on January 24th, 2022.

Jason is survived by his wife, Angelee Muncy, sons Aedan and Seamus Whitcher and Brian Arciniega and spouse Lindy, parents Ken and Mary Muncy of Gilbert, sister Sarah Muncy of Chandler, nephew Reid Payne, niece Rayna Nuriddin, numerous aunts and uncles, and grandchildren Madison and Gage. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Jim and Opal House and paternal grandparents, Bob and Darlene Muncy.

Jason brought so much joy to his family when he was born on April 19th, 1971 in Fullerton, California. His parents moved to Arizona when Jason was a toddler and his extended family soon followed, as they could not bear to live so far from his bright light. He attended Ida Redbird and Crismon Elementary Schools in Mesa, as well as Rhodes Junior High. He graduated from Dobson High in 1989, where he was known for his contagious smile and lowride custom VW bug. Jason obtained his Bachelor of Science in Education with a minor in Spanish from Northern Arizona University after studying abroad in Cuernavaca, Morelos Mexico. After graduation, Jason worked as a bilingual interpreter for US Airways prior to joining Southwest Airlines. Jason loved working for Southwest, as it allowed him the freedom to use his bilingual skills and connect with people in a meaningful way daily.

After 45 years of waiting for his perfect match, Jason met Angelee, his soul mate, and they married in Puerto Penasco, Mexico, in 2018. Jason welcomed Aedan and Seamus into his home proudly and prided himself in teaching them to be friends to everyone. His sons remember him for his humor and kind nature, and his parents enjoyed a lifetime of adventures with Jason; he was a wonderful son. Jason was not only a brother to Sarah, but also played the role of “big brother” to his numerous cousins; Britney Saito, Wyatt House, Derek Youngberg, Brandi Lerche, Mark Eib and Marcus King, as well as cousins in other states.

Jason was a huge sports fan, frequently wearing the Seahawks team sweatshirt belonging to late friend Chad McAllister on game days. Jason always had a smile on his face and twinkle in his eye, believing that any conflict could be resolved through friendly conversation. He was a true and loyal friend who will be missed by his family, friends, and colleagues at Southwest Airlines. The family would like to thank the entire Southwest family for their love, friendship and support of Jason over the last 20 years.

  • You’ll be greatly missed. I remember the early 90’s watching bands, and checking out VW’s. It was also great to run into you in Nashville. RIP

  • Bob & Teddi Daigneault

    We’ve known and loved Jason since he was nine years old. Having lived across the street from him for 10 years and remaining close friends to the Muncy family for 41 years, we saw him grow into a lovely young man. Then we saw him marry the love of his life and that day, he was the happiest I had ever seen him. God bless you, Jason. Give Opie a big hug for us and a big high five to your grandpa! Look in on your mom every now and then…You are her light.

    Jason was the sweetest nephew! He was only a few months old when I took him for the night to experience caring for a baby before becoming pregnant. He was so easy to take care of and even slept all night. He made me decide having a baby would be right for us. Jason was the cutest little toddler, respectful teenager and turned into a great man. I never heard him speak badly about anybody and will miss his big beautiful smile until we meet again in Heaven! I LOVE YOU JASON.

  • You were one in a million cousin Jason. You were more like a big brother to me. You introduced me to so much cool music, and even taught me how to skateboard and snowboard. When you were a teenager BMX racing in Chandler, you encouraged me to race my big wheel. I still have that little trophy I won when I was 7. I always looked up to you, and wanted to be more ike you. I grew my bangs out, and bleached them with sun in to look more like you. I have so many great memories golfing with you, and long boarding around Tempe Town Lake. Any time spent with you was an honor, and I loved our talks. I know you are in a much better place now. I can’t wait to see your big shining smile on the other side.

  • To my bro. I met you when you were in 6th grade at Crismon. You were always the chill grounded one in the crew. I am so very sad we lost touch over the past few years. You were and always will be the guy who could lift up the group with your laugh and kind heart. Rest easy my brother I know you will be watching over us. Love you bro

  • Jason was a great guy, and he will be sorely missed by his entire family!!!!!!

  • Oh Jason how you are loved adored by so many. I was just 12 when you were born but I remember the joy you brought to not only your parents but to your paternal Grandparents, their first grandchild. Over the years I watched you grow from afar into such a wonderful man that your family is so proud of. You will truly be missed and your memory will be cherished in our hearts forever. Give Grandma & Grandpa Muncy and Uncle Kirk a huge hug. Love Aunt Bobbett

It’s clear that Jason will always be remembered for the positive and loving role he played in the lives of friends and family. May God be with you and guide you in your hour of need . . .

  • When I was in 5th grade..Jayson and ken were building the bug. Always let me hang out in the garage and feel involved, despite being younger.
    At that time I didn’t get along with my brothers so it was a special time for me. And great times on the half pipe.. Little did we all know I would end up married to sarah and we blessed our family with Reid.
    R.I.P Jayson.
    Always kind brother in law..awsome uncle.

  • Derek Youngberg

    Jason, you are sorely missed! Thank you for spreading your love and light during your time with us. We are all better people for having known you. You inspired us and cared for everyone. It shows through the love and encouragement you received from your mom, dad, and sister growing up, and you mirrored that to the rest of the world. I have always loved you like a brother growing up together and through your passing I have had so many memories the past few days of how you inspired the great parts of my life and who I am today. I wish I had another opportunity to say “Thank You, for you being the best you that helped me be the best me.” Until we meet again.
    Your cousin Derek

  • Jason: this is so hard to believe. I remember your first day at Southwest, like it was yesterday. You were so full of enthusiasm and couldn’t wait to inflect your own brand of humor on everyone you came in contact with at PHX. We had some great party’s in Chandler and it was always a blast when you made an appearance.
    I’m very sorry for this tragic loss for your family…you are a bright light that will never be extinguished!
    God speed my friend and Rest In Peace 🙏🏻

  • I worked with Jason at SWA. He was such a nice guy. I will never forget him. His wife and family are in my prayers…

  • Only the good die young.
    Been missing your smile, laugh and light hearted spirit at work since I’ve transferred and am sad to learn I’ll never have that experience w/ you again.
    My prayers and condolences to your loved ones. You will surely be missed

    I miss you BROTHER! I wish we could have one more shift in the ramp sups office together laughing so hard. The ramp sups and I had a drink for you on Friday. So many funny stories and heartfelt memories shared. Super Muncy REST ON THE BEACH MY BROTHER!!!

  • Jason you made everyday at work with you a good one. No matter what was going on you did it with a smile, kindness and a great sense of humor. So thankful to have have 8 years of working with you in PHX. To your wife Angelee, your family and friends I’m so sorry for the loss of this bright light in your lives.

  • One of the coolest, sweetest, sunshine-y-ist guys I ever knew. It is impossible to remember Jason without a smile on his face. Miss you.

  • Jason, My Son. Almost 4 weeks without you. I am crying less, and everything beautiful reminds me of you. You were my little buddy when I was 19. We shared everything together: T-ball, baseball, football, motor cross, karate, jogging, marathons, every birthday, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, 12 immediate birthdays, Nashville, Fort Myers, letters, jokes, secrets, but most of all we shared our hearts. Jason, You will always be my favorite and only son. I thank you for loving me so kindly and respectfully all of your life. You were never scolded or spanked as a child because you were always so hard on yourself if you messed up like:
    setting your bedroom closet on fire, trying to drown Sarah in our pool, inviting ALL Dobson High students to our house to party (along with live band) when Dad and I went away for the weekend. I could continue for hours with memories of You.. Jason, I know you are not far away. I look forward to the day I can hug you again. I love you with all my heart.
    Your Loving Mamasita, Mom 💕
