Jason Yarger

January 29, 1980 — October 14, 2022

Jason Howard Yarger, son of Howard Eugene and Sandra Kay (Spencer) Yarger, was born January 29, 1980, in Springfield, Missouri, and passed away October 14, 2022, at his home in Seymour, Missouri. He was 42 years, 8 months, and 16 days of age.

Jason grew up and attended school in Seymour, and he graduated from Seymour High School with the class of 1998. He got married March 6, 1999, and had two children, Desray Hope and Keaton Howard. He drove a feed truck for the Hartville Mill, and he later drove an over-the-road semi-truck. He was also able to team drive with his dad for a few years.

Jason enjoyed barbecuing and having get togethers with family and friends. He was also fascinated with semi-trucks and enjoyed looking at different models. He especially loved trucks and trailers that had bull hauler lights on them. Jason enjoyed listening to old country music in his spare time. He liked to be outside in nature, and he also enjoyed hunting. He loved spending time with his family, especially playing with his nieces and nephews.

Jason was preceded in death by his father, Howard Yarger, two sisters, Donna (Yarger) West and Renee (Yarger) Pojar, his maternal grandparents, Ted and Millie Spencer, and his paternal grandparents, Morris and Mabel Yarger.

He is survived by his mother, Sandie Yarger, one daughter, Desray Hope Yarger, one son, Keaton Howard Yarger, one brother, Shawn Lester, three sisters, Lisa Lester, Joyce Yarger, and Rhonda Yarger, all of Missouri, and many nephews, nieces, cousins, and extended family and friends who will miss him.
