Jayson Robert Murset, known by those who loved him as “Jay”, passed away on January 31,
2021 at the age of 16 in Phoenix, Arizona at Banner-University Medical Center from
substantial injuries due to a serious car accident he was involved in a day earlier. Jayson
was born on February 28, 2004 in Chandler, Arizona.
Jayson came from a big family. His parents, David William Murset and Emmalyn Budge
Murset along with his siblings, Dayton, Bryson, Ambria, Savana, Weston, and Carisa reflect
continuously on the kindness and tender heart that Jayson possessed.
Although Jayson’s life in mortality was brief, he touched the lives of many people in the 16
years that he was alive. Jayson was the kind of person who demonstrated true friendship to
everyone he came in contact with. He was always willing to serve those around him and
valued each relationship he was able to have while on this earth.
Jayson was a well-balanced person. He loved working out in his home gym and playing
sports, especially basketball. Dirt biking, snowboarding, and water sports were other
things that he enjoyed. He also knew how to play the piano and the guitar, was a master at
cooking breakfast, and extremely involved in his church. He earned his Eagle Scout Award
and had many opportunities to serve.
Even though Jayson endured everyday having Type 1 Diabetes, it never stopped him from
doing the things that he loved to do. He fought every day to maintain his health by working
out and eating healthy foods.
Jayson will be remembered for his strong faith, ability to serve in a way the Savior did, and
his lasting kindness and value of friendship. May we continue to live and love in the way
Jayson Murset did, esteeming our relationships as the highest priority.
