It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Christopher Paul Jaeger on December 24, 2021 at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre, Blairmore, AB after a short, but hard-fought battle with cancer. He was only 37 years of age.
Chris was born in Calgary, AB on October 23, 1984 to parents Sasha JaegerBaird and Gordon Jaeger. He grew up in Calgary and moved down to the Crowsnest Pass, AB after graduating high school which is where he met his wife and the love of his life, Ashley Holmes. They were married on July 30th, 2011 and were blessed with one son, Jacen.
Chris had many passions and talents including, but not limited to cooking, wood turning, camping, flying drones, singing loudly and out of tune, photography and gold panning. He worked in several jobs in customer service in the Pass, most recently and the for the longest time at Bamboo Bistro and Black Rock Pizza with his good friends John and Erica. There was never a more handy or prepared man out there, except maybe MacGyver. If you ever had a problem that needed solving or something that needed fixing, Chris was your man. He will be forever remembered as a kind, quirky, generous and loving soul who would gladly give his shirt off his back for anyone in need, but especially to his family and friends whom he cherished.
Chris was predeceased by his father, Gordon Jaeger and his grandfather, Gene Storeshaw, and he is survived by his wife, Ashley; his son Jacen; his mother, Sasha JaegerBaird; his stepfather, Guy Baird; his sister, Alex Jaeger; his brother, Richard Jaeger; sister, Amanda Baird; his grandmother, Elizabeth Storeshaw; his nieces and nephew, Gabrielle, Raiden and Charlotte; and many wonderful friends. A Celebration of Life will be held in the summer of 2022. Condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca.
