Wyatt Christopher Jackson

11/29/2001 - 08/16/2020
Visitation Date: 08/20/2020
Visitation Time: 6:00 - 8:00 PM
Visitation Location: Bunker's University Chapel, 3529 East University Drive, Mesa, Arizona

Wyatt Christopher Jackson, 18, of Mesa AZ passed away suddenly in his sleep on August 16,2020 from a genetic heart condition (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy).  Wyatt was the proud loving son of Janet and Jeffrey Jackson.  Wyatt graduated in the class of 2020 from Mountain View High School in Mesa.  He was proud to be employed by Mesa Public Schools as an IT Tech, which helped him to support his true love of Chevy trucks.  His passion for trucks led him to become a dedicated member of the C10 Club doing photography and truck renderings and meeting lifelong friends along the way.  Wyatt spent many quality hours with his dad restoring their Chevy square body trucks.  Family was so important to Wyatt and the bond he shared with his mother was truly undeniable.  They spent a lot of time together just talking, laughing and enjoying the same music.  They both agreed their bond of humor was clearly a saving grace. Their love and time together cannot be compared to any other and is cherished.

He is preceded in death by grandparents Ernie and Norma Benton, Uncles Tim Benton and David Jackson and his nephew Jackson Welch.  Wyatt is survived by his parents Jeff and Janet Jackson, grandparents, Dick and Robin Jackson, Dick and Nancy Carlquist, sister Nancy Welch (Peke Urias) nieces, Savannah Witzel, Teryn Jackson and nephew Caleb Witzel. Also survived by loving Aunts, Uncles, cousins, and a special friend, Taylor Bowman.

Words cannot express the loss of this kind, respectful, well-loved, talented and humorous young man taken way too soon from us.  Wyatt will be sadly missed by all that knew him and is way too loved to ever be forgotten.

Son, we love you to the stars, suns, moon and back.

Thank you for being there for me and helping me through all of the difficult times….You are a big part of why I made it through those difficult times…and yes I do remember all of them.

  • Jeff, Jan, I am so sad and sorry. I pray for strength for all of us during such moments, as no sense can be made of this. Your love and grief are felt.

  • I was one of the blessed ones who was able to spend a year with six year old Wyatt. He was such a fun kid to have in first grade and I’m so thankful I was able to connect with you this last year Jan and hear about all the amazing things he has done since then. I try not to ask why often…but this is one of those times. Love you and Jeff and will keep you lifted up in prayer💜

    Jeff and Janet, we have been out of town and just learned about Wyatt. Our tears and heart break cannot fully convey our shock and sadness. Wyatt was the nicest young man, always waving as he drove by in one of his restored trucks, always a nice good morning or hello. He made the world and our lives a better place. He will be missed.

  • Judy Craigie Miller

    I remember Jeff as a fun loving little boy on camping trips with his Grandma Gayle. What a loss.

  • Oh my goodness. I am so sorry to learn of this sad news just now; I loved Wyatt’s smile and enthusiasm for his trucks! Such a kind and honorable young man. It always brightened my heart when I realized I would be able to sit and talk with him about his hobbies, even if for a few minutes. He had a way of energizing me through his bright personality! He will be missed during the rest of this mortal experience by those left to finish it up, but I believe you will be with him again.
