November 4, 1991 – Edmonton, AB
July 23, 2014 – Springbrook, AB

Jasen Kim, beloved son of Harry and Laura Kim of Calgary, passed away on Wednesday, July 23, 2014 at the age of 22 years.

Jasen was born in Edmonton and graduated in 2013 from Haskayne School of Business, University of Calgary. He received his Bachelor of Commerce degree and was working towards a CPA designation at Collins Barrows Accounting firm in Red Deer, Alberta.

Jasen loved the outdoors and enjoyed spending as many days as he could at his parent’s cottage in Fernie, B.C. Here he enjoyed snowboarding, golfing, quading, snowmobiling, dirt biking and fly fishing. After some tiresome days at the slopes, he loved to end the day playing the guitar in our family “Guitar Hero” rock band.

Jasen loved to watch sports on TV, including NFL, CFL and NHL games. He enjoyed participating in football and hockey pools with many of his childhood and university friends and at the office. As much as Jasen loved sports, he really enjoyed spending time with his friends as time allowed from his studies.

Jasen is survived by his parents Harry and Laura Kim; sister Melissa, grandparents Don and Maureen Snyder; grandmother Chung Won Kim; aunt Susan Koybasi (Erturk); uncles John Kim (Maria) and Craig Snyder (Marion); cousins Nesrin (Craig), Nese (Kelvin), Jessica, Matteo, Marco, Aydin, and many friends and co-workers. He was predeceased by his grandfather Hyung Su Kim, and Uncle Paul Kim (Barbara).

Condolence from Hazel Burns on July 27th, 2014 10:36 AM

Dear Laura, Harry, and Melissa,
Words can’t adequately express the shock and sadness I felt when I saw the picture of Jasen in the newspaper announcing his passing. He was such a terrific kid when I taught him in third grade: so quiet, hard-working, and always striving to do his best. I was pleased to see how much he had already accomplished in his young life. I’m sure you were very proud of him as am I. I wanted you to know you are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. May you be granted the strength to face this immeasurable burden and given the peace and comfort to face the days ahead. Please give Melissa an extra big hug for me and pass on my sympathy to Maureen and Don as well. At Christmas I always think of Jasen as I display the beautiful Santa Claus Moose that he made for me. It has received so many compliments over the years. I will always treasure it.
Thinking of all of you,
Hazel Burns

Condolence from Bill Hope on July 27th, 2014 12:44 PM

Laura, Melissa & Harry,
We were shocked & saddened by the news of Jasen’s sudden passing. Words are inadequate to express the sadness & sorrow that we feel for your family. Jasen was a wonderful person and he will be greatly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.
Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Susan & Bill

Condolence from Caroline Hendry on July 27th, 2014 5:47 PM

I had the pleasure of teaching Jasen for Comm Tech, while he was in grade 10. I remember him as a cheerful and fun student. I am saddened to hear of your loss.

Condolence from Johanna Evert on July 27th, 2014 10:53 PM

Laura, Harry, and Melissa
We are so sorry to hear of Jasen’s passing.
As boys Jasen and Patrick spent many hours playing and working together. We have a particularly vivid memory of Jasen and Patrick in Grade 8 as they worked on an analysis and presentation of the song “Stairway to Heaven”. The teacher’s evaluation, which we still have, states “Among the best I’ve seen.” “Exceptional.” “110%” “A++”. These comments are a reflection of the kind of person Jasen was.
Johanna, Curtis, and Patrick Evert

Dear Maureen and Don
Rick and I were so very sorry to hear of your beloved grandson’s death. I know how much he meant to you and how much you will miss him. Your grandchildren are so special to you. You are very much in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

Condolence from Jenny Kinas on July 29th, 2014 11:36 AM

Dear Harry, Laura & family,
My sincere condolences on your loss. I know that feeling of sudden unexpected loss and it is a void that brings with it many emotions. May you find comfort in knowing what an exceptional young man Jasen was. He touched many people in his shortened life and will leave behind a multitude of strong memories to all. Lane told me he was “truly the nicest guy he’d ever met”. He loved the time they spent together with your family in Fernie. Life sometimes takes us down a different path than that which we would choose, but somehow we find our way. May the love and support of family and friends help you through this time and the healing periods ahead.

Jenny Kinas

Condolence from Laurie Lewis on July 29th, 2014 4:17 PM

KIM family,
Words cannot express the loss of one that is held so dear by his family. I remember all the help he gave us when we started our new payroll program, his smile and patience when so many of us were frustrated. I will remember him for being so pleasant, he was such a wonderful young man. My heart goes out to you and may you find comfort in each other and knowing that he left a lasting impression on those that he met along his journey.

Condolence from Michelle Lombardo on July 29th, 2014 8:45 PM

The Kim family,
My most sincere condolences on your sudden loss of Jasen. I had the absolute pleasure of getting to know and work with Jasen while we were in university together. I remember how helpful he was and how he was the most sincere, kind and funny person around. Upon his passing, I came to the realization that we had actually gone to preschool together – I wish I had gotten to share that with him and to hear him laugh at what a small world it really is.
My heart goes out to the entire Kim family at this time and know that you all are in my thoughts and that Jasen left a long-lasting impression on everyone that he encountered.

Condolence from Susan Anning on July 29th, 2014 8:58 PM

I was so terribly sorry to read of Jasen’s passing. You spoke of him often and with deep love and admiration when we would work together. He was such a gentleman when I met him.
You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I’m so sorry.
With sincere sympathy,

Condolence from Maureen Coulombe on July 29th, 2014 10:11 PM

Kim Family
I was so sorry to hear of your loss. As a student in my Design Studies class at Dr E.P. Scarlett, Jasen was an intelligent, hard working, fun and kind individual. He made me smile everyday. Those of us whose lives were touched by Jasen were indeed fortunate. Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss.
Maureen Coulombe, Jaffray B.C.

Condolence from Mike Thauberger on July 30th, 2014 3:28 PM

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Kim,

Jasen was an incredibly caring and thoughtful man. Being four years younger and growing up down the street from him, Jasen always looked out for me. He acted like an older brother to myself and all of our fellow neighbours. He made sure we were always included in every game that was being played. And if we weren’t included, it was because Jasen felt one of us could potentially get hurt. His attitude was always positive, no matter the circumstances. I am terribly sorry of his passing. Please accept my sincere thoughts and prayers.

Mike Thauberger

Condolence from Janet Guterson on July 31st, 2014 5:11 PM

Kim family,
I had the pleasure of teaching Jasen in my PE 10 class. He was a fantastic young man who I know will be missed greatly. He always gave 100% effort and was an awesome young man to teach. I am sending you all lots of love and hugs and I want you all to know how sorry I am for your loss.
Mrs G.

Condolence from Dave and Anita Brunker on August 5th, 2014 4:48 PM

Harry, Laura and Melissa and family
We just heard today of Jasen’s untimely passing and we have no words to express our profound sadness. We pray for strength and comfort for you as you go thru this most terrible of trials. Jasen was one of the most delightful, funny, diligent young men we have had the privilege of meeting. A true reflection of the love and his upbringing in the Kim household.
Dave and Anita Brunker

Condolence from Becky Job on August 18th, 2014 4:45 PM

Dear Laura, Harry, Melissa and family,
We were so shocked and deeply saddened when we heard about Jasen’ s sudden passing. Jasen was a wonderful young man who accomplished so much …a real tribute to Laura and Harry’s parenting, and all the love that was always so apparent in your family on both the Kim and Snyder sides. Our hearts go out to all of you. The service was a beautiful collection of stories and photos that reflected his life. We will treasure the memories that we have of Jasen and are at your side as you go through this terribly difficult time. Love, Becky, Scott, Tracy & Kristin
