Jacob Allan Lee Hanson

September 3, 2022

Jacob Allan Lee Hanson’s life was taken from his family, friends and loved ones in a tragedy on August 19, 2022, in Burlington Washington. A celebration of Jacob’s life will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday, September 10, at the Skagit Golf and Country Club, 16701 Country Club Drive, Burlington, Washington, with a reception following.

As we take this in, I would like everyone to take a moment and remember Jake as the outgoing man he was.

Jacob Hanson was born December 31, 1995, in Anacortes, Washington, to his father, Allan Hanson and mother, Tammy Hanson.

Growing up he spent most summers in Bonners Ferry with his grandfather, Dan Dunning, and sister Megan Hanson. They spent their days morel mushroom hunting, fishing, huckleberry picking and camping alongside the Kootenai River, where he went cliff jumping, rafting and panning for gold. His time wasn’t much different back home, Jake would do anything he could to be out adventuring with friends and family fishing on the Skagit river, crabbing, camping and going up any backroad he could.

Jake made his career at Janicki Industries and Neilson Bros moving up to a foreman position before his passing. He had an extreme passion for the logging industry and was the most hardworking man. If he were ever to get hurt, he would brush it off and ensure the job got done.

Jacob values his time with his close friends as he had many. I asked a few of them to describe Jake using three words. He spent most days with Levi and his fiancé Alicia, and they describe Jake as one of the most caring, goofiest, hardworking and respectful man they have ever met. Other close friends described him as a true hearted, loyal, kind, funny, passionate, fun and courageous.

His most treasured moments with his friends would be fishing at Lake Shannon in Concrete, Washinton on a boat where he spent his childhood fishing camping with his family. His most prized possessions were his deer and elk sheds and wood craftsmanship. Jake touched many people’s lives and will continue to through memories.

Jacob is survived by his father, Allan Hanson, mother Tamara Hanson, sister Megan Hanson, great-grandmother Ruth Tiff, grandparents Sharon Dunning and Dianne Hanson, aunts Suzie Dunning, Lisa Parker and Celeste Simon, several cousins; his beloved dog, Maggie, who will now stay in the family.

He was preceded in death by his grandfathers Ronny Lee Hanson and Danny Roy Dunning and uncle David Roy Dunning.

Jake was taken to Lemley Chapel in Sedro-Woolley Washington, where his immediate family viewed him for the last time in person but will always keep him in memory.
