December 8, 1954 ~ May 26, 2022 (age 67)

Attention, J-Mart Shoppers, with deep sadness we announce that the owner and proprietor of J-Mart has passed away and will no longer be able to serve you at this time. Jay R Christensen was a man who loved to help his neighbors, friends, and family. The doors to his home and shop were always open. Jay was a loving grandpa who spent his time helping others, tinkering, and supporting his kids and grandkids by going to plays, sporting events, livestock shows and any other “fine activity” his family could dream up. Jay R loved to find a bargain and store it on his property until he or some other person he knew needed it for a project. Nothing made him happier than to dig some item he bought at a swap meet, N.P.S., or salvaged from a job site and give it new life in the hands of someone in need.

After battling cancer for several months, Jay R passed away peacefully in his home with his wife and kids at his side. He will always be remembered for his big heart, kind smile, and ability to manufacture any contraption out of whatever material he had on hand. He taught his family kindness, love, and how to turn work into play by inventing little games. We love you, Dad. You will be in our hearts forever.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday June 4, 2022 at the Bothwell Park (10350 W 11600 N, Tremonton,) from 5-7 P.M., casual best.

Condolences and memories may be shared with the family at Rogers and Taylor Funeral Home.
