\nJeffrey Jay Page was born Dec. 22, 1959 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Jay and Peggy Page. He passed away on Oct 31, 2023 in West Jordan, Utah at the age of 63.\n\nJeff Page, a man of profound faith, enduring strength and boundless creativity, was a beacon of light in the lives of those who knew him. Jeff has always been a determined person, working on various projects and continually making improvements wherever he could. Jeff’s mind was always searching for the most efficient way to accomplish his goals. Jeff had a powerful conviction which showed through in his conversations with others. They consisted of his passionate opinions about the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Health, and Politics.\n\nJeff met his wife and eternal companion, Annette Green, at a Halloween party while he was bottle feeding kittens. From that moment on, he knew that he wanted to be with her. Jeff and Annette were sealed for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake LDS Temple, on July 16, 1981. Jeff was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and bore his testimony of Jesus Christ frequently. Jeff did not treat people differently because of their life choices, but he wanted them to know of his testimony of Jesus Christ and what he knew to be true. He served faithfully in several callings but his favorites were being the Ward Mission Leader, serving as the Second Counselor in the Bishopric, and taking every chance he had to teach others about the Gospel of Jesus Chirst.\n\nHe graduated from Bingham High School in 1978 and soon after started his business, Discovery Collision & Painting. He used his talent and creativity to paint and restore vehicles in which he won many awards. Jeff was also known for his custom pin-striping work for Butterfield Ford in the 90’s. His designs were so unique that you could spot his talent on various vehicles while driving around town. Jeff and his dad, Jay, shared a passion for the restoration of old vehicles. One of the most well-known is the 1963 Ford Falcon Squire Wagon which was painted in Jeff’s custom-made color he called “That’s It Green”.\n\nJeff and Annette were blessed with three children; Brandi, Ryan, and Cherie. Jeff was very proud that all three of his children have a testimony of Jesus Christ and are active members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Their fondest memories of Jeff consist of Sunday family activities that included visiting loved ones, family bike rides, and spaghetti dinners. Jeff was a thrill seeker and often took his family around the US to various amusement parks to experience the adrenaline rush roller coasters provide. His favorite was riding the Millennium Force at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. At the time it was the world's largest and fastest rollercoaster - he even waited in line for two hours to ride it. Anyone who knows Jeff would know this is an accomplishment for him because he disliked large crowds and waiting in lines.\n\nJeff loved to plan vacations and explore the outdoors. One of his side businesses was being a cruise consultant for CruiseOne. He particularly enjoyed planning large group excursions for family and friends. He had a passion for traveling, seeing, and experiencing new places. He especially loved nature and the natural beauty God created.\n\nJeff was an avid skier from a young age and loved backcountry skiing and snowboarding at resorts. He started mountain biking in 1986, which he fell in love with instantly. Jeff rode his mountain and road bikes year-round three times a week for 28 years. He enjoyed every minute of his time outdoors participating in these sports. In August 2015, in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, while on a mountain biking vacation, Jeff rode off a 6-foot drop that he didn’t see. He broke his neck and became a C6-7 quadriplegic. He was paralyzed from the middle of his arms and chest down. Although devastated by his injury, this did not stop him from doing the things he loved, like biking and skiing.\n\nAfter his accident he never stopped seeking out opportunities to make adaptive sports more enjoyable for those who are wheelchair bound. Especially those with limited capabilities like quadriplegics. His brain was constantly going, trying to figure out how to improve the sports & recreation equipment for quadriplegics like himself. Once he had an idea he didn’t stop searching until he could find someone to help him make that idea a reality.\n\nJeff was the first quadriplegic in Utah to have a power assist handcycle with voice activated shifting. From that time forward, he worked with several programs to help build and obtain the right equipment so others could enjoy handcycling as well. He worked with and advised Wasatch Adaptive Sports, the National Ability Center, U of U Trails program, Electrify Bike Co., and the Endless Sphere Forum to help them develop and improve equipment/software that expands the sports and recreation opportunities for all wheelchair bound persons.\n\nHe had an incredible mind for engineering and problem solving. After his accident he got to work trying to create and improve ways for other people like him to be able to participate in his favorite activity of biking. Many people were blessed with the opportunity to be his hands as he continually worked to develop and improve his designs and bring them to reality. This often meant a 30 minute fix would take several hours.\n\n Sarah Ban Brethnach once said, "The world needs dreamers and the world needs doers. But above all, the world needs dreamers who do!" Jeff was a dreamer who DID and he had a great desire to make what should be possible become possible. He changed the way many people view quadriplegics and the misconception that they aren't able to participate in sports and recreational activities.\n\nJeff was blessed with an amazing caregiver, his wife Annette, who served him 24/7 for the last 8 years. She is truly an angel here on earth and a great example to us of the pure love of Christ.Their marriage of 42 years may have been cut short in this life, but through their temple sealing it will endure into eternity. The knowledge of our Heavenly Father’s plan brings us strength and peace as we cope with this loss.\n\nHe died doing what he loved, riding his bike. He loved his bike because he could feel like he was back to his pre-accident self, with the wind rushing over his face. Riding his bike was one of the few things he could do that gave him a sense of normalcy and freedom. Although we are saddened by this sudden tragic loss, we are grateful that he is now free from his severe physical limitations here on earth. Jeff always viewed death as a graduation from this life into the arms of his Heavenly Father for eternity. He never feared this step in the Plan of Salvation.\n\nJeff is survived by his loving wife, Annette; his oldest daughter, Brandi (Zach); his son, Ryan (Julee); and his youngest daughter, Cherie (Blake). He left behind 9 grandchildren; Jaxon (16), Kaisalyn (14), Talon (12), Sierra (11), Tylee (8), Aliyah (8), Aspen (7), Avery (5), and Colton (2). As well as his parents Jay and Peggy Page; his siblings Roxane, Elise (Eddie), Terren (Stephanie), and Randy (Tiffany); his in-laws Clifton and Joyce Green; multiple aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and many friends. We would like to thank everyone for the outpouring of love, support, and prayers at this time.\n\nIn Lieu of flowers, you may donate directly to Annette's Venmo account (@Annette-Page-7) or donate money to Wasatch Adaptive Sports (www.wasatchadaptivesports.org/donate) on behalf of Jeff Page.\n\nThose wishing to pay their respects may visit on Sunday, November 5th from 5-7 PM at the LDS chapel located at 8950 South 1300 West, West Jordan UT, 84088.\n\nFor close friends and family, a short visitation will be held November 6th, from 10-10:45 AM with the funeral to follow at 11 AM at that same address.
