1978 ~ 2012
David Jones died suddenly and tragically Friday July 27,
2012 at the age of 33. He lived in Cedar Hills, Utah.
Daniel was born September 28, 1978 to David Lee and Dianne
Jones in the city of Monterey, California.
Daniel served a full-time LDS mission in St. Louis, Missouri
from 2002-2004. He loved his experience as a missionary
and met many wonderful friends there. He reminisced the
exhilarating stories of the rough streets of East St. Louis
with fondness. He served as an assistant to the President.
Daniel earned degrees in Social Work from BYU-Idaho and
University of Utah. He was an excellent student and graduated
with Summa Cum Laude honors as well as being involved with
meaningful charities at the time. Since his completion of
his M.S.W. Daniel worked for Valley Mental Health in Salt
Lake City as a mental health therapist. He especially enjoyed
his work with inmates at the Utah State Penitentiary. He
focused his life on loving and helping other people.
Daniel married Stacey Jensen in the Mt. Timpanogos LDS
Temple on September 2, 2006. The couple made their home
in Rexburg, Idaho while Daniel finished his B.S. They moved
to Utah County in 2009 and purchased their first home in
Cedar Hills last year. Daniel has two children, Cloey Dianne
(4) and Maya Ann (2) who love him dearly. He was an involved,
playful and silly father.
Daniel loved outdoor adventures, hiking, biking, practicing
jiu-jitsu, computers and technological gadgets. He was an
outgoing and friendly man who loved to make a joke.
Daniel’s last year on earth was one of pain and ill
health. We hope and pray he will find solace.

and Ankah, his beloved German shepherd.
