Jared Tyrel Robertson passed away instantly on August 7, 2017 in Lloydminster, Alberta as a result of a tragic motorcycle accident while riding with the Disciple Christian Motorcycle Club to which he belonged.
Jared was born on February 2, 1991, to Al and Valorie Robertson in Regina, Saskatchewan. With an older sister Natasha and a younger brother Braden, he had a fun-filled vibrant childhood. The majority of these years were in the Yorkton area.
Jared enjoyed many activities such as soccer, taekwondo, skateboarding, snowboarding, Muay Thai, camping with the family, scuba diving and truck driving with his dad all over Canada and the USA. He often talked of being a navy seal in hopes of being a hero. He cherished the “Arts” especially music, film, stand-up comedy and tattoos. Jared attended private and public school but was mostly homeschooled by his mother. He attended “Youth With A Mission” in Denver after his high school graduation. He also spent an exciting year in Australia, swimming and surfing.
From the time he was young, he struggled with AD/HD and was therefore extremely energetic and impulsive. Although sometimes a detriment, many times it led to deep friendships with people young and old who appreciated his energy, his zeal and his “unfiltered” approach to life. However, through his teen years Jared became entrapped in substance abuse which thankfully came to an end with the help of much prayer as well as the influence of his girlfriend Nicole.
Jared’s personality was larger than life. Whatever it was that he was excited about, he put 100 percent of his heart and soul into it. He was always brutally honest and valued that quality in others. He was compassionate and had a natural ability to understand people and perceive who needed to be included. He loved to tell us what we should and should not eat and was concerned with taking care of his body. He loved to talk about his visits to the gym and encouraged many others in reaching their health and fitness goals.
Jared was blessed with a large and loving extended family. On June 1, 2013, he married Nicole Rae Sharp in Yorkton, Saskatchewan. They moved to Saskatoon where Nicole finished her degree and Jared worked as a truck driver and then later in car sales. Nicole was the love of his life. Some of the activities they enjoyed together were: working out at the gym, going to concerts and movies, a summer of semi trips to the States, modeling shoots, riding together on his motorbike and events with the motorcycle club.
Jared had many jobs in his life including retail, directional drilling, fast food restaurants, truck driving and most recently, selling cars. He loved his job at Saskatoon Auto Clearing where he was always setting new goals.
Jared understood clearly that Christianity is not an institution or a religion but a way of living. The Church is not a building but a living body made up individuals who are connected to Jesus Christ through submission and obedience. Jared was thankful that salvation is not earned but granted by God...that eternal life in heaven is not a reward but a gift...that forgiveness is not about us and what we have done—but about Jesus and what He has done. This last year, Jared grew in his faith walk, and in his own words, was ready to meet Christ.
Jared leaves behind to mourn his beloved wife, Nicole Robertson; his parents, Al and Valorie Robertson; sister Natasha (husband Chris) Palmer and their twins Alisha and Alaina; brother Braden (girlfriend Sophia); grandparents, Isabel Robertson of Moosomin, Bernie and Hilda Brandt of Kamsack; parents in law: Carol Hildebrand and Ray Sharp and many more relatives and friends. He is predeceased by his grandfather, Cliff Robertson.
The pallbearers were Greg Coombs, Braden Robertson, Jesse Suran, Chris Palmer, Brook Andres and Jacob Eskildsen.
The funeral service was held on Monday, August 14, 2017 at 11 am at the Curling Rink of the Gallager Centre, in Yorkton. One of Jared’s motorbikes along with numerous other motorcycles were on display at the service. Pastor Ryan Wiesner and Pastor Randy Moffit of Roblin, Man. led the service. Pastor Ryan Wiesner was the officiant at Jared and Nicole’s wedding. The worship band, Pastor Cheryl Klingspon, Pastor Des Klingspon, Ramsay Moore, Luke Moore and Samuel Derkatch led the congregational music in singing “Blessed Be Your Name” and “10,000 Reasons”. For special music they sang, “Are You Ready?” and “It is Well With My Soul”.
Other motorcycle groups accompanied the Disciple Christian Motorcycle Club as they rode together to lead the 35 other vehicles in procession to Jared’s final resting place in Moosomin. A special thank-you to the Yorkton RCMP for assisting this cavalcade through Yorkton. The interment service was held at the Sunset Memorial Gardens in Moosomin, SK where Jared’s body was buried among other family members.
