Jimmy Don Jespersen "SPIKE"

Our loving husband, father, brother and friend, Jimmy Don Jespersen, was born March 26, 1950 to Don and Joyce Jespersen in SLC, UT. He passed away courageously June 13, 2011 surrounded by his family. He attended Skyline High School where he played football and developed a passion for the game and gained a lifetime of friends. Jimmy eventually followed his father's footsteps in 1968 and joined the U. S. Marine Corps and proudly served his country in the Vietnam War. He was a simple and humble man who enjoyed life to the fullest. His greatest passions in life were his family, friends, golfing, landscaping the yard, working hard, and of course UTAH FOOTBALL! Thank You Coach John Pease and Coach Kyle Whittingham for putting a smile on his face. A special thanks to all the caregivers, family members, and friends who helped take care of Jimmy. He is survived by his loving wife and best friend of 29 years, Susan (Suzie), two sons, Jamie (Jacqui) and Toby, daughter, Cortney (Chet Albanese), and three grandchildren, Livie, Lucy, Corbin, brothers, Jeff, and Jay (Kaye), and sister, Jerri (Duane) Vigos. We will all miss our Jimmy! A celebration of Jimmy's life will be held at South Mountain Golf Club in Draper, Utah between 1:00-4:00 p.m. on Friday, June 17, 2011.
