Tanner showed me so much about love, adventure, bravery and kindness. He led me on journeys I’d never have experienced without him, and I’m forever grateful I had the chance to know and love him. I’m so sorry he’s gone, but will remember his infectious smile, mischievous eyes, and enormous heart for the rest of my life. My deepest condolences to his entire family.

Dear Scott and Lisa - we were sorry to miss you and your family at the Kleffner Ranch to offer our condolences. Bill is off in San Cristobal (Mexico) and I had some last minute conflicts come up. I am sure you will miss Tanner something awful but am equally sure you all have some just terrific memories to hang on to. With love, Sandi & Bill Olsen

I was shocked and saddened to hear about the death of Tanner. I didn't know him very well but I went to Middle and High school with him and he always seemed happy, friendly, and popular. I remember going thru confirmation classes with him at St. Paul's United Methodist Church. I remember when it was graduation Sunday at church. And they invited me to sing a song with them and I didn't feel comfortable because I wasn't involved in much of the activities after confirmation but I went up with other graduating seniors anyways. Halfway thru the song I started crying and I remember Tanner put his arm around me to comfort me and I'll never forget that day. I thought that was so nice and thoughtful of him. May he rest in peace. My prayers and blessings go out to his family.

My family and I extend our deepest condolences on the pain and void in your hearts in losing Tanner. I never met him, but from what I heard he left a positive impact on people. He loved the natural world and the company of good friends and making new ones. Truly a life worthy of celebrating. RIP Tanner Since Tanner loved the natural world, may Psalms 37:9-11 give you "Strength,"Comfort"and "Hope" for Earth's beautiful future that includes those RIP (Acts 24:15) It's good as done because. .."God is not a mere man who tells lies,Nor a son of man who changes his mind. When He says something, will He not do it? When He speaks, will He not carry it out? "- Numbers 23:19

Tanner was one of the most brilliant people I’ve met. As a co-worker, he amazed me by passing LCB exam on his first try. And, he beat my score despite having no prior experience! On the trails, Tanner always kicked my butt. Always humble and always ensuring everyone was having a laugh. Patience, kindness, love - this seemed to be his mantra. I’ll miss you, buddy. My deepest condolences to his family.

The Jackson Family- I am deeply saddened to hear of Tanner’s passing. I haven’t seen Tanner since high school, but he made a big impression on me back then. We were in choir together and he was always so nice to and accepting of me even though I was a few years his junior. We had many fun times together at school, in choir class and out and about exploring. He was at my family’s house many times and my Mother loved Tanner. She fondly remembers the day when she made us PB&J sandwiches and Tanner promptly (and confidently) corrected her and told her how to make a PB&J sandwich “the right way”. I’m fairly sure he just loaded on the jam! :) Tanner was a kind soul, adventurous, fun, and loved to lead the pack. I only have good memories of him. I’m sorry the world has lost such a wonderful person. You are all in my thoughts and prayers! May Tanner Rest In Peace.

Although I didn’t know Tanner, I feel moved by his story. A boy brought up in Montana embraced by nature and the love of his family who grew into a man who connected with all who knew him. I’m very sorry Tanner’s life is over. I send my deepest condolences to his family and friends.

Offering my condolence to the family and friends of Tanner Jackson. It is obvious from the kind words that Tanner will be fondly remembered. As you cherish the many memories, reflect on the time death & sorrow will be conditions of the past! (Revelation 21:3,4; 1Corinthians 15: 26) This is what our loving God Jehovah has promised and Jesus Christ himself guaranteed the hope of seeing our loved ones again by means of the resurrection. (John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 26:19) May God’s word comfort & strengthen you each day, as we await the fulfillment of his promises! (Joshua 23:14)
