Spring Chief, Jason Peter

November 7, 1972 – September 29, 2012

Jason, beloved husband of Christa, passed away on Saturday, September 29, 2012 at the age of 39 years.

Jason attended school in Calgary and at Crowfoot, Milo, and Arrowood Schools. He furthered his education at Old Sun College. He was currently employed with Sustainable Resources Developments as a Heli-Tack member, Siksika’s first. He loved coaching baseball for the Siksika Jays, as well as little league and also for Minor Hockey. He achieved awards for the Deerfoot Raiders Cross Country, Wrestling and Baseball teams. One of Jason’s greatest joys was visiting Graceland, home of his idol Elvis Presley. His other idol was George Jones. He believed in native spirituality and his Catholic faith. He was well known for his kindness, caring ways and always had a smile for everyone. He had a lot of respect for the elders and the people he met. His Aunties and Uncle will particularly miss his morning phone calls just to make sure they were alright.

Left to mourn the loss of such a kind man are the love of his life and soul mate for 24 years Christa “Priscilla” and his precious children whom he loved so dearly Destiny “Destinaki”, Wyatt “Mister”, Teagan “Boom Boom” and Mandy; mother Joyce Spring Chief and step-father Jack Stevens; in-laws Chief Fred and Pam Rabbit Carrier; sisters Andrea, Louise (Callen) and Erica (Keon); brothers Freddy (Jess) and Deon; nieces Mina and Angelee; nephews Brett, Saffrin and Kolt; grandparents Mike and Connie Rabbit Carrier and Gordon and Christine Big Snake; Aunties Joan (Don), Annette (Ryan), Shirley, Ann Marie; Uncles Floyd, Errol (Anne), Harley (Delia), Sam (Alexis), Kelly (Jackie), Allan, Randy (Carolyn); Great-Aunties Rosemarie (Robert), Sandra, Annie, Christina, and great uncle Roy (Linda). Also left to mourn are all his cousins who he took as his brothers and sisters. His extended families Running Rabbit, Duck Chief, Little Chief, Doore, Wolfleg, Low Horn and McMaster. Sorry if we missed anyone.

Jason was predeceased by his brother Keith Spring Chief; grandparents John and Elizabeth Spring Chief; Aunties Brenda, Delphine, Claressa Little Chief, Margaret Wolfleg; Cousins Ivan and Jane and great uncle Phillip Little Chief and his mentor Emery Medicine Shield.
