Jason Koyle

February 18, 1984 — February 4, 2023

On February 4, 2023, Jason Kevin Koyle returned to his heavenly home lovingly reunited with his loved ones.


Jason was born on February 18, 1984 in Payson, Utah. He spent most of his life growing up in Park City and Kaysville. He met his wife Tara on July 4, 2002 right after high school. While driving around with friends in Barnes Park, Jason spotted his future wife in another car with her friends. He would always say that he knew immediately that she was the one for him even though he says it took him a while to accept it. They were then married for time and all eternity on February 11, 2005 in the Bountiful Temple. They were blessed with five children, Connor (17), Wyatt (15), Parker (12), Brynlee (9), and Kamden (5) and their dog Molly (12).


As soon as he was old enough to talk and eat, he never stopped. Jason loved people and you were never a stranger to him. He made anyone he met feel like his best friend immediately. He was instantly willing to help people with anything they needed. Jason had a love for life and could always find the humor in any situation. He kept his family and friends laughing often with his stories and jokes. He never took himself too seriously and would make a fool of himself just to entertain others and put a smile on their face.


He grew a love for the outdoors and hunting from his Grandpa Koyle and his Dad. You could always find him up on the mountains on his four-wheeler, side-by-side, or helping people get unstuck with his beloved winch.


Jason loved to work on anything with his hands. His new passion was woodworking with large trees that he cut down himself. He built Tara a farmhouse table for the family, mantle, coffee table, and shelves for their home. He learned his love for trees and climbing from a friend and he turned that love into his own business. He was a hard-worker who never knew the meaning of lazy. He worked as a professional concrete finisher, arborist, small engine mechanic and had just started a new job at Hill Air Force Base.


He loved to share his passions with his kids. He especially loved having them help him work on his truck, often referring to it as his second wife. Tara referred to both his truck and his dog as his first and second loves. If you couldn’t find him on the mountains, it was a safe bet he was outside working on his truck.


Jason enjoyed expanding his repertoire of expertise and was constantly on the hunt for more knowledge. Throughout his life he took classes in swift water rescue, search and rescue, and volunteer EMT. He loved to help in any way possible. He learned about tree care, new mechanical skills, and working on water softeners and vacuums.


Jason is survived by his wife, Tara Koyle (Cano); his kids Connor, Wyatt, Parker, Brynlee, and Kamden; parents, Kevin and Elaine Koyle, Janet and Glenn Smith; siblings, Jamie Webb, Julie Hughes, Steven Hughes, Michelle (Levi) Swenson and loving extended family.



Jason, the kids and I thank you for sharing your light of love and service with us for as long as you were with us. We will carry your memory in our hearts forever, and we will continue to carry on your passion of service and love. We love you, always and forever. Till we meet again.
