Jacob Dixon Kummer
October 24, 1986 – November 28, 2012

Jacob ("Jake") Dixon Kummer, 26, of Provo, Utah, returned home to his Heavenly Father on November 28, 2012. He will be deeply missed by all that knew and loved him. He was born October 24, 1986, in Bakersfield, California. He attended grade school in Bakersfield, California; junior high school in Spanish Fork, Utah; and high school at Timpanogos High School, in Orem, Utah. He graduated from the Utah Fire and Rescue Academy in 2007 and was most recently pursuing a paramedic degree at Utah Valley University.

Jake had a big heart and loved helping others. He was tender, caring, and compassionate. He had an incredible sense of humor and a passion for the excitement of life. He loved snowmobiling, motorcycling, and everything adventurous. He also loved animals, traveling with family, and being outdoors. He often felt most at peace under the stars.

It is rare indeed to meet someone who makes such a positive impact on the lives of others as Jake did. Our lives—and countless others—have been greatly blessed by his short time with us. He will be dearly missed and will remain in our daily thoughts, but because of, and with gratitude for, the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we know we will see him again. For, "Jesus said, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live." John 11:25.

Jake is survived by his parents Dixon (Dana) Kummer, of Bakersfield, California, and Kim (James) Johnson, of Orem, Utah; his sisters Emily, Lauren, and Stephanie; his brothers Grayson, Matthew, and Jared; and his beloved dog, Pyro. He also leaves grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends that greatly loved him.

Funeral services will be held Monday, December 3, 2012, at the Heatheridge 6th Ward, 1505 North 130 East, Orem, Utah, at 11:00 a.m., with a viewing prior to the funeral from 10:00-10:45 a.m. An additional viewing will be held at the Walker Sanderson Funeral Home, 646 East 800 North, Orem, on Sunday, December 2, 2012, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Jake will be laid to rest next to his grandparents at the Spanish Fork Cemetery.
