Posted by Janet Laubhan Flickinger
Jason Burney Giles, 40, of Norman OK passed away August 11, 2016 as a result of a long and courageous battle with Leukemia. His friends and family were by his side when he drifted off to be with the Lord.
He was born on May 4th 1976 to Glen B Giles of
Carnegie OK and Donna Long Giles of Norman OK.
Jason was born and raised in New Jersey and graduated from Middletown North High School in 1994. He later graduated from Devry University. Jason moved to Norman 10 years ago; he was in search of the perfect home to raise a family and live a comfortable life. Jason was an outdoors man who truly enjoyed nature. He loved hunting, fishing, skiing and golfing. He loved to spend time with family and friends and enjoyed life to the fullest and there was no greater joy in his life than being a father. Jason’s first priority was always his family and he worked tirelessly to support and provide for his wife and three daughters. He adored his daughters and his wife tremendously.
Jason worked at Ernst & Young for 17+ years as a Visual communications and interaction product manager, within the workplace and enablement organization. He took pride in his work and was very driven to succeed. Whether in the workplace, at a social gathering or anywhere he was present, his charismatic soul and contagious laugh would make you smile instantly. His wisdom, love, and caring for others always came through. Jason was a true fighter and fought his battle with cancer with strength and determination, without ever giving up. Jason’s family is in deep mourning over the loss of this beautiful soul, who was taken way too soon.
Jason is survived by his wife Fiorella Del Castillo Giles; daughters Sofia, Adalynn and Isabella Giles; his parents Glen and Donna Giles; his sisters Tammy Trumble and Amy Condon. He also leaves behind several aunts, uncles, cousins, niece and nephews, and a host of friends, colleagues and mentors who played very important roles in his life.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents Horton and Helen Giles of
Carnegie and Donald and Betty Long of Norman.
Funeral arrangements are being handled by Havenbrook Funeral Home and St Thomas More University Parish in Norman. The funeral services will be held at 10:30 am on Saturday, August 20th at the parish; burial will follow at Sunset Memorial Park Cemetery in Norman.
In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that you consider donations to the Light the Night Walk sponsored by the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Jason was very proud to take part in such an amazing cause. His family’s fundraising efforts have helped contribute to blood cancer research and potentially saving someone else’s life. http://pages.lightthenight.org/ok/OKCityL16/fgiles
