Jarrod Neal Magnuson, 31, of Greeley went to be with his heavenly Father Saturday, October 10, 2020. He was born July 1, 1989 in Greeley to Herman “Butch” and Jayne (Rugh) Magnuson.

Jarrod graduated from Greeley Central High School in 2008 and attended the University of Northern Colorado for one year before transferring to Fort Lewis College. He played football there for one year and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Criminology and Sociology in 2013.

Working his first job as a correctional youth officer at Platte Valley Youth Services, he found his calling in working with youth and later became a detention case manager with SB-94. He then went on to join the family business, Valley Fire Extinguisher.

He loved football and coached briefly at Mountain View High School. He also enjoyed golf, camping, fishing, shooting, and being in the outdoors. He was a gourmet cook and grill master, entertaining others frequently. He could always light up a room with his smile and witty personality. Jarrod’s family will remember his warm embraces and giving heart.
Jarrod was a member of Ducks Unlimited and loved the Boston Red Sox.

Thankful to have shared his life are his mother, Jayne; brother, Ryan (Katie) Magnuson; grandparents; Chuck (Janet) Rugh and Herman (Cherlene) Magnuson, as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his father, grandmother Barbara Magnuson and aunt Kimberly Higuera.

A Life Celebration will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday, October 22 at Foundations Church, 1380 N Denver Avenue, Loveland.

I was fortunate to know Jarrod as a student athlete during my tenure at Greeley Central High School. He was a kind, funny, genuine young man who was a credit to his family and to our community. I remember him so fondly, and am deeply saddened by this loss, as well as by the loss of his father. My most sincere thoughts and prayers are with the Magnuson family during this incredibly difficult time. May God be with you all in the days ahead.

The warmth and compassion Jarrod exuded was truly special. I can't think of a day where he wasn't kind, compassionate and full of smiles. He and Butch will be very much missed, I am very sorry for your loss.

Jarrod was larger than life, such a big hart, I know how much he loved his family & of course his cat. Such a great kid, he had a loving family that cherished every minute with him. I will miss you Jarrod.
