On Saturday August 14, 2021 Kason Ryan Adams died accidentally while cliff jumping in Lake Havasu, Az. Kason was born in Orange, Ca on December 15, 2001. He resided in Temecula, Ca. He is remembered fondly. An outpouring of reaction has come locally in Temecula and stretched across the nation. Since Kason’s passing our family has been heartened and admittedly surprised at times how positively he touched the lives of so many.
Kason was the kind of person who could touch your soul while at the same time cause your heart to ache and worry. Always an athlete and dare-devil, Kason since his early years was known for his athletic and physical prowess.
The sight of young Kason at 3 years old, on his BMX bike, jumping ramps in the middle of the street, was a sight to behold. Kason’s days in Pop Warner football at age eight exhibited a rare athlete overwhelming his teammates; and the opposing team by zig-zagging his way down the field for a hundred+ yard touchdown. Kason played quarterback and defensive back for Temecula Valley Pop Warner for a number of years. He then went on to play for Great Oak High School until sustaining a severe left elbow injury ending his career. Kason was a 2020 graduate of Great Oak High School.
Kason was in a way an old-fashioned kid. He loved his friends and the outdoors, fishing in the lakes of Temecula, the Colorado River and many other locations. He excelled in this skill and talked at times about becoming a professional Angler. Spending many days at the Colorado River Kason was also excellent at water sports. He loved the beach as well, where he would hang out with his friends and go bodysurfing and skimboarding. But if he wasn’t at the beach or at the river you could find him on the slopes in the wintertime. He excelled at snowboarding and couldn’t wait for fresh powder!
After graduating high school, Kason attended Northwest Lineman College in Meridian, Idaho. This trade school seemed a perfect fit to match his high wire antics. Kason graduated lineman school and “of course” he and his team won the coveted “Lineman Rodeo.”
Just a few months out of Lineman school he was hired by San Diego Gas and Electric as a Lineman Assistant. Kason was also a member of the IBEW 465. He was assigned to the North Coast Carlsbad yard where he took great pride in his job and spoke often about how much he loved it and his new family and the brotherhood he had developed with each of his crew members. Kason had big aspirations. He was working toward becoming an apprentice lineman and then eventually wanted to be an Electric Troublemen.
Unfortunately, his life was cut short and even though we are beyond devastated by his loss we are truly grateful for the 19 wonderful years we had with him. We have absolute FAITH that he is in a better place rejoicing with our Heavenly Father, and one day we will see him again! We will love you forever Kason, Rest in Paradise Son.
“I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die.” John 11:25
