Minton's gofundme forJonathan Smith

Jonathan D Smith

7/06/1992 – 8/25/2018

A mere 26 years old! Jay was the guy that never said “NO”

 Jay, as he was known to his fellow employees and friends, was a Level 3 Apprentice of Carpenters Local Union #152 of Northern California. In April 2017, he approached his uncle Bill for a chance to join the union as a carpenter to forward his career so that one day buy his high school sweetheart wife a house and start a family.  He was a hard worker and always willing to work the extra hours to help the company out. 

Jay lost his life while driving to a jobsite Saturday morning,8/25, on highway 237 after losing control of his vehicle from a tire blow out.

He was loved by many family and friends.  Jonathan leaves behind his loving wife, mom, dad, and siblings.

Please join us in helping raise funds to cover the cost of his funeral.
