Jerome "Rome" Francis Borsch

October 12, 2002 — August 14, 2023

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our cherished son, brother, uncle, daddy, partner and grandson. Jerome was born in Ogden, Utah on October 12, 2002, to Bridgette Borsch (Gerry Kunschke) and Jerome Borsch Sr.  


Jerome brought immeasurable joy and warmth to the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing him. His kind and compassionate nature left an unforgettable mark on the hearts of friends, family, and everyone who crossed his path. He had this incredible way of embracing life with contagious excitement, always willing to offer a helping hand. 


From a young age, Jerome displayed a curiosity and passion for animals, cars, football, and Tree(s). Whether it was exploring the outdoors, creating art, or pursuing his many different interests, he did so with dedication and a genuine love for learning. His zest for life was infectious, inspiring those around him to embrace every moment.


Jerome’s love for his family was without limit. He cherished the time spent with his two daughters, his girlfriend, Victoria “Vic” Martinez, siblings, friends, and family. Memories created with Jerome will forever be held close to our hearts.  He was a devoted and loyal friend, always willing to offer support, love and compassion and his friendships were a testament to just how big his heart really was. 


In his journey with OWATC, Jerome demonstrated a remarkable determination to excel. His hard work and perseverance led Jerome to participate in helping build the Weber Remembers 9/11 Exhibit. Jerome successfully obtained his diploma from OWATC and was eagerly looking forward to completing his welding courses, making his family incredibly proud of his accomplishments.


While our hearts are broken with the loss of Jerome, we find comfort in the beautiful memories he leaves behind. His infectious laughter, his boundless energy, and his kind spirit will forever remain alive in our hearts. Though his physical presence may be gone, his legacy of love and compassion will continue to inspire us all.


Jerome leaves behind his two daughters, Meila, and Ayylah Borsch; his parents, Bridgette Borsch, Gerry Kunschke and Jerome Borsch Sr; siblings, Brandon, Preslee (Ryan), Dustin (Maria), Taylor (Spencer), Sierra, and Shyesta; grandparents, Steve and Laurie Carter, Yolanda Borsch, A.C. and Kay Scheer. Jerome also leaves behind six nieces and one nephew; cousins, Zach Carter, Marissa and Tony Lilly. He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Jerome F. Borsch; great-grandfather, Arthur Sheron; great-grandmother, Barbara Sheron. 


The family extends their gratitude to Mystie Hansen, Ogden City Police and Fire Department, as well as the McKay-Dee ICU staff, and Taylor Borsch for the exceptional care and support of Jerome.
