Jason Wayne Smith

June 27, 1980 - Aug. 7, 2022


On Sunday, Aug. 7, 2022, Jason went home to be with the Lord, at the age of 42. Jason was born on June 27, 1980 in Frankfurt, Germany to Richard W. Smith and Marianne England. Jason met his wife, Richelle in 2008 and they married on June 28, 2013. They were blessed with two beautiful children, Andrea and Jayden. Jason was so proud of his family and loved them dearly. They lived a life of adventure including packing up and moving from California to Washington state in 2017. Jason had a deep love for nature and the Washington forests after living in Port Townsend as a teen and young adult. He always knew that is where he was meant to be, and he and his family started a new chapter in Bonney Lake.

Jason was extremely talented, could fix or build anything and took great pride in his work. His dream was to own a construction business, so he and his wife made that dream come true in 2018 when they opened JWS Remodel & Construction. After several years of running JWS, he decided to take a job working for a construction company as a superintendent. Jason's passion for creative design and running his own company was always on his mind, so in 2020 he started Byldco, a remodeling business. Jason truly enjoyed his line of work and took great pride in the relationships he built with his clients.

Jason had a huge heart and was always willing to help others. He was known to give to the less fortunate, cover meals or groceries for strangers and bring food to the homeless.

Jason was a man of his word and loved people, struck up conversations with anyone and genuinely cared about the stories they had to share.

Our hearts broke when Jason left us, but he left his mark on this world and we are proud to have been a part of his life. You were truly lucky to cross his path, feel the love from his heart, hear his contagious laugh and experience his love for adventure.

Jason leaves behind his loving wife, Richelle; children, Andrea and Jayden; mother and step-father, Marianne and Jack England; father and stepmother, Rick and Susan Smith; grandmother, Anne Cannata; sisters, Cyndi (Kenneth) Jenkins and Jennifer (Kris) Bulleri; mother-in-law and father-in-law, Terri and Tom Ririe; grandmother, Sandra Cornell; sister-in-law, Candice (Jesse) Gomez; sister-in-law, Brianna (Brian) Desilva; and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and countless friends who often turned into family.

He is preceded in death by his grandfather, S. Frank Cannata; grandparents, Thomas and Evangeline Smith; and father-in-law, Richard Carbajal.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to a fund for Jason's family. Venmo: Richelle-Smith-2.
