Jaden was born to Darci Winger in American Fork, UT. He was number five of six biological siblings.
At two weeks of age, Darci was no longer able to care for him. Soon after, Allen and Debbie Frost and their family all knew that Jaden was to be part of their forever family.
Their oldest daughter, Lindy, brought Jaden home to Monticello, where he instantly won the hearts of everyone who met him.
In the summer of 2008, when Jaden was five years old, the Frost family celebrated finally being able to officially adopt Jaden and have him sealed to them for time and all eternity in the Monticello Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Jaden attended school at Miss Julie Lewis’s Preschool, and Monticello Elementary, Junior High and High schools, where he was well loved by friends and teachers alike.
From a young age, Jaden loved running as fast as he could! He loved being a part of the track team and especially enjoyed sprinting, where he excelled.
He was a Yu-Gi-Oh! legend, an entrepreneur-candy man – Skittles vendor, and always ready for a good game of cards.
Jaden enjoyed participating in the Boy Scouts of America. He had earned the rank of Life and was working towards his Eagle.
In July of 2017, Jaden had the opportunity to attend the National Boy Scout Jamboree in West Virginia, where he enjoyed many new adventures and made lots of friends.
True to his love of collecting, he really enjoyed trading patches at the Jamboree.
Jaden enjoyed an active life of dirt-biking, bike riding, long boarding, working on scooter tricks, and running. He loved camping, four-wheeling, boating, and traveling with his family.
He loved spending time with his parents, siblings, nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, cousins, friends, and grandparents.
He was his dad’s right-hand man, skipper, dog whisperer, sheep herder, and helped with all kinds of projects around the house.
Jaden passed away on April 4, 2018, in Monticello UT. His funeral services were held on April 9 at the Monticello LDS Stake Center, and his body was laid to rest at the Monticello Cemetery.
As Jaden’s family, we will be forever grateful for the blessing and privilege of having Jaden as an important part of our family. He was a great example of pure vulnerable love and always gave the greatest full two-arm hugs!
Jaden is survived by his parents Allen and Debra Frost; siblings Lindy Frost, Dustin Frost, Valerie (Austin) Howe, Daniel (Kayla) Frost, Angela (Ryan) Stuart, and Taralee (Dylan) Knight; nephews Gavin, Parker, Sawyer, and Zane; nieces Alyssa, Pearl, Evelyn, and Aspen; grandparents Larry and Sally Winger, and Harold and Erline Frost.
Jaden is preceded in death by his biological mother Darci June Winger; uncles Larry Dean Winger, Ray Hooper, and Jose Ojeda; and cousins Nicole Ketchum and Javin Francom.
