Jacob William Rogers July 28, 1984 - August 13, 2015
Jake Rogers, 31, passed away peacefully on Thursday, August 13, 2015 at University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle, surrounded by the love of family and friends, following rejection of a double lung transplant.
Raised in Glendale and Kanab Utah, Jake spent his days creating wonderful paintings and unique art pieces loved by many. With unending positive optimism and a contagious sense of humor, Jake made friends everywhere he went. This includes his time spent at the University of Utah studying graphic design, in Portland Oregon where he created some of his most amazing artwork, and his time spent in hospitals receiving care for cystic fibrosis. Physicians, nurses, and patients alike fell in love with Jake's unending positivity, and his creative antics. Whenever and wherever the trial, Jake has gone through it with a smile on his face and a joke to tell. Jake loved the outdoors, was fascinated with outer space, and found beauty and art everywhere he went. While he never let his physical condition hold him back, now he is limitless.
Jake is survived by ten nieces and nephews that absolutely adore their Uncle Jake, four siblings, and his loving parents Russell and Julie Rogers.
