Jacob Ransom Crist
Jacob Ransom Crist, 19, of Las Vegas, NV on Monday evening December 23, 2013 passed away in his home.
Jacob was born February 11, 1994 in Ogden, UT, a son of Makala Crist Carruth. At age ten he came to Las Vegas to live with his Aunt, JulieAnne Snowball-Kowalski and extended family.
To say the least, Jacob was a feisty child, so full of energy. He loved listening to music of all kinds but especially Avenged Sevenfold, Escape The Fate and Asking Alexandria. He loved to skateboard with his many beloved friends. Jacob liked his video games, and would lose track of time in those worlds. Jacob was a smart kid but decided school wasn’t for him so he earned his G.E.D. in 2010, at age sixteen.
Survivors in addition to his mother and aunt include a daughter, Lilianna Marie. Jacob is also survived by his sisters Hope and Trinity of Utah and MistyAnne of Las Vegas brothers Josh, Chase, Kody, Brandon of Utah and TR of Las Vegas, whom he held very dear and shared many stories about. Survived also by surrogate mother Madre (Lori Harrett), brother Cody Joel Harrett. Jacob’s spirit will be forever missed by Lilianna’s mother Arlene and Kanani who is cherishing the last gift he left of an expecting new child. Another part of his sweet spirit left here for us to love and cherish. He had a large amount of loving family which includes many aunts, uncles, and cousins who will miss him dearly.
Jacob will be greatly missed by all who knew him. We will forever miss his smiling face. He was a beloved father, son, brother and friend. There will be no one else as special and unique as Jacob Ransom Crist was. There are no words to express how important Jacob was in our lives as we mourn the loss of this wonderful soul.
Memorial services will be held on Monday December 30, 2013 at 3:30 pm at the Hilton Grand Vacations (Mahogany Room) at 2650 Las Vegas Blvd S Las Vegas, NV 89109.

When I was younger and my mother and I could visit our family more often, Jacob was more like a brother to me than a cousin, more so than my real brother has ever been. We’d fight all the time, and he’d pick on me, but he had always been kind and compassionate past that. He would give anyone a chance to be given his support, and he was absolutely infectious. Or, at least when he wasn’t being quiet and reserved. He had really begun to find himself and grow in his last few years, and it is so, so hard to see him go so soon, when he had so much more ahead of him. He was the light under the door when you came home, he was the elephant in the room, the first rung on a ladder, the fresh snow before it turns to packed ice, an old door you don’t need the key to, and the eye of the storm. My heart is breaking because I cannot be at his memorial ceremony due to travel difficulties, and I wish i could be there to celebrate him with the rest of our family, but I will be lighting a candle for him and letting it burn on at 3:30. To have to let him go is a truly overwhelming and harrowing hallelujah; he has earned his place, and will no longer have to struggle. He is gone all too soon, but I know, and our family knows, that although his light has gone out, he will continue to burn on in us all, and with the sun. I wish the best of luck to his two lovely children, and to both Arlene and Kanani. My heart is with them, and with the rest of our family. I love you, Jacob, and I am so sorry that I cannot be there to see you off. But I will have my own time to remember and celebrate you, as we all should.

We were so sorry to read of the loss of one so young. May “the God of all comfort” (2 Cor. 1:3) be with you at this time.
this article says not nearly enough to say how amazing you were jake.
i remember when I first met jake he was so nice to me.Noone in the house knew who I was I just kind of appeared and disappeared then reappeared I was dating P at the time. I remember when P got me and jake with the freakin dart gun. They had to use pliers to get the dart out of jakes side. Me and jake would play fight he was like a little brother to me the one I wish I would have grown up with . I’m sad that such a wonderful soul has been called home I will miss him.
