Brian Jason Perry, 45, passed away on Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 24, 2022. He was
born November 15, 1977, in West Valley City, Utah to Stanley Perry and Barbara Brown Perry.
He married the love of his life, Brittanny Marie Carpenter, on the glorious day of Friday, June 18, 2010, in Newport Beach, California.
Jason was born and raised in West Valley City, Utah. As a kindergartener, Jason regularly
helped tie his friend and classmate, Corby’s shoes. While attending Jackling Elementary School
he enjoyed playing tether ball and building transformers. He entered a science competition and
built a transparent beehive so well the judges thought it was done by an adult. At Kennedy
Junior High School, he was quite disruptive during Marching Band practice. His teacher, Mr.
Carsy, made him flail on the floor while crying “I’m a dying cockroach!” This was his favorite part of band practice! His favorite pastime while attending Hunter High School was to cause trouble.
He was a drummer with his friends in the band Tinker Toys. Jason thought it was very cool when
they were asked to play at a school assembly. In high school, Jason was loved by all,
especially younger neighborhood kids who would ask him to play street basketball with them.
At 19 he went on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to Tacoma,
Washington. He came home just before Christmas in 1999. In spring of 2000, Jason and his
brother Nate left the mountains of Utah for the ocean waves on the coast of Southern California.
While living two exits from Mexico, Jason and Nate worked in Imperial Beach at Stanley
Steamer. He was written up for costly long distance phone charges they incurred while calling
his mom on the work phone. He entered school to become a chiropractor and simultaneously
worked at Geico in Poway, California for a few years. In 2004, Jason and Nate bought a condo
in Escondido, California. After Geico, he worked at a State Farm office in Carlsbad, California,
where he gained experience running an insurance office and decided he wanted to open his
own. In 2006, Jason and Nate bought another condo in Laguna Hills, California. In 2008 he
opened his own Allstate office in San Juan Capistrano, California. Jason and Brittanny met on a
Sunday in November of 2008 after church at a “Break the Fast” get-together he was hosting at
his house. It wasn’t long after they began regularly going out to dinner. For Valentine’s 2009
Jason took Brittanny to the Pantages Theater in Los Angeles to see Phantom of the Opera and
after that, it was all over. They enjoyed spending time together nearly every day after work and
became best friends. On February 11, 2010, Jason and Brittanny both got off work early and
went on a horse ride together through the hills of San Juan Capistrano, California. They rode
until Jason saw a spot overlooking the ocean. He asked Brittanny to marry him and she wouldn’t
have wanted it any other way. On June 18, 2010, their families gathered at the Temple of the
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Jason and Brittanny were sealed for time and
all eternity. While living in Laguna Hills, California they welcomed their baby girl, Madelyn Rose Perry in October 2011. In the summer of 2012, Jason, Brittanny, and Madelyn moved to Santa Clara, Utah and six months later to Washington, Utah. Jason and Brittanny welcomed their first baby boy, Bennett Cash Perry, in December 2013. In 2015, they bought two horses, Jules and Sarg. They loved to ride and spend time with the horses, and even take them camping. The
same year Jason and Brittanny bought a motorhome, which they renovated together and spent
many weekends camping and spending sacred family time. In June 2016, they welcomed
another baby boy, Garrett Finn Perry. In late December of 2016 Jason, Brittanny, and the kids
moved to a new house in Washington, Utah. The next few years were spent raising his family
and growing his business. He coached each of the kids’ soccer teams, one time even two
teams the same season. Friday nights were always for family date nights. Jason enjoyed
shopping with his Rose, camping with his boys, working on home projects for his Brittanny. He
spent every day working from home and spending as much time together as possible. Family
vacations were a highlight in his family life. In Spring of 2020, Jason bought another insurance
office which was an important milestone for him. Jason and Brittanny welcomed another baby
boy, Maverick Cole Perry, in August 2021. That November, Jason bought a new travel trailer for
his family. He was so excited for all the family time and traveled extensively with the trailer. The
summer of 2022 is one that will not soon be forgotten. It was filled with constant camping trips to different locations with the horses, trips to water parks where they would spend multiple days
playing in the water and sitting in the shade of the cabana, visiting Thanksgiving Point, and an
adventure-filled week in Montana and Yellowstone, followed by a trip to the Grand Canyon.
Jason chased every dream, felt every feeling, loved without end, and gave everything he had.
He accomplished an incredible amount in his life. To those who knew him, nothing was
impossible. He was incredibly smart and there was never a problem he couldn’t solve. He was
always the first to selflessly serve when someone was in need. Even if he was up to his ears in
projects, he always got it all done. His testimony of the Gospel was written on the fleshy tablets
of his heart. He knew who he was and to whom he belonged. Jason was solid, steady, and calm
in the storms of life. There will never be a day when his family will not deeply miss and need
him. Heaven gained one of the best of us.
He is survived by his wife Brittanny Perry and children Madelyn Rose, Bennett Cash, Garrett
Finn, and Maverick Cole Perry (Washington, UT); his parents Stanley and Barbara Perry (West
Valley City, UT), his brother Nathan Perry (San Diego, CA); his sister Angela Perry (Taylorsville, UT).
Funeral services will be Saturday, December 3rd at 1 o’clock in the afternoon at 450 West 3650
South, Washington, Utah.
Arrangements are made under the direction of Spilsbury Mortuary, 110 S Bluff Street, St. George, Utah. 435-673-2454. Family and friends are invited to share a memory on Jason’s obituary page at
