Donor, Minnesota

Jaydan was a vibrant, beautiful young lady whose smile lit up a room. She was loved by many and touched the lives of so many others. She was very active in extra-curricular activities while in school. She did cross country, basketball, track, and was a baseball manager for her dad (Jayson). At an earlier age she played volleyball, softball, and participated in musicals. She played basketball for her dad starting in 3rd grade. She also enjoyed spending time with dad in the dugout as a manager at baseball games. She had a great sense of humor and a most distinguishable laugh 🙂 Jaydan and mom (Michelle) would have deep conversations and enjoyed jamming to music. Her two sisters (Kirsten and Kaylee) and brother (Alec) loved her even though she could get under their skins at times – ha ha. Jaydan became a proud Aunt with the birth of Asher – she loved him! She worked as a paraprofessional at Ogilvie Elementary School for two years and loved working with the kids, in particular River! We miss our Jaydan so bad, our hearts ache. We love her and are very proud of her for helping save the lives of many as a donor. She was able to donate her heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, and pancreas. She also donated her corneas and skin. She loved to help people and she was able to help and save many through these donations. Her final act of giving provided incredible gifts for many! We may not understand why she had to leave this world – but it doesn’t change the fact that we will always remember and love her.

She loved Taylor Swift (a swifty) and enjoyed collecting rocks and crystals. She loved to spontaneously have fun !

With love from all of your family and friends. You will never be forgotten !
