Jason E Tummond

Jason E Tummond, 44, of Glenrock WY passed away peacefully on October 13th at Wyoming Medical Center surrounded by friends and family.

Jason was born in Lakeland, FL on May 16th 1975 to Margie and David. The family including his two brothers, moved around before settling in Casper in 1981. As a young child, Jason was known around the neighborhood for his bright orange hair, pulling his red wagon, and occasionally stealing the neighbor’s mail. He was active in Special Olympics, Weight Lifting, Swimming, Bowling, Skiing and the KW marching band. He worked briefly at Albertson’s before being fired for “Smiling in the mirror, dancing down the aisles and shining the customer’s shoes”.

Jason was an inspiration to everyone who met him. He taught us to appreciate the simple things in life. His favorite things were rainbows, smelling flowers, art, children, holidays and most of all music. He had a pure, child-like spirit which never wavered, even during his many years of health issues.
