Jaramiah Colby Olsen

    Jaramiah Colby Olsen, age 33 of Roosevelt, passed away on Tuesday, November 24, 2020 at his home.
    Jaramiah was born April 20, 1987, in Roosevelt Utah, Duchesne County, to Meldrin Martin and Louise Taylor Olsen. He was the 8th of 9 children. He was raised in Neola, Utah on the family farm/ ranch, where he worked hard to take care of the animals he loved. Especially "T-Bone" the family dog.
    In May of 2008, he met who became his life love, Molly. They started their adventure together.
    Jaramiah loved to drive truck and was very proud of his accomplishment in acquiring his CDL. He was passionate about his music and guitars. He loved spending time with his friends, his family and his fur babies. He loved to fish and be goofy.
    Jaramiah was a very kind hearted, loving, special spirit who always brought light into any room he was in. He had a way of bringing a smile and a laugh to anyone that knew him. If someone was having a bad day, he would make time for them and completely turn their day around. He always thought of others and treated them as individuals. He was the most non- judgmental person you would ever meet. He always had a smile on his face and would welcome anyone into his home. If you had a problem, he was there to help. He would give you the shirt off of his back without hesitation. His presence alone would turn the dark into light. He loved the holidays and brought life to every occasion. Everyone that knew him loved him. He will be missed dearly.     
    He is survived by his companion, Molly Mckeachnie, Roosevelt, UT; his siblings, Scott Martin (Shannon Allene) Olsen, Ivins, UT; Tamera Lynn (Brandon Morgan) Cook, Vernal, UT; Christopher John Olsen, Roosevelt, UT; Sean Carlos Olsen, Vernal, UT; Tiffany Lyn (Douglas Matthew) Rosendahl, Meeker, CO; Harlan Shelby (Anya K) Olsen, Roosevelt, UT; Joshua Kaleb (Heather Rennie) Olsen, Vernal, UT; Krysten Leigh Olsen (Lonnie Moore), Salem, UT; uncle, David "Cory" Taylor, Roosevelt, UT; aunt, Kathleen Taylor (Allen Kirby), Wasilla, AK; and his beautiful nieces, nephews and cousins.
    He was preceded in death by his parents, Meldrin and Louise.
