Jack Richard Taylor passed away unexpectedly at his parents' home in Young Harris, GA on Saturday, May 20, 2023.
He was born in Johnson city, TN on May 9, 1974 to Jackilee Thomas and Robert Richard Taylor. He was a graduate of Tri-Cities Christian High School. He attended Carson Newman University in Jefferson City, TN and graduated from East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, TN.
He was an excellent athlete and an avid Tennessee VOLS fan (GO VOLS!!) and Atlanta Braves fan.
Jack worked many different jobs which allowed him to travel and see many parts of the US. His last job found him working as a manager for Vail Resorts in Crested Butte, CO. He loved this change in his career path and, following a demanding ski season, was visiting family on a break before starting into the busy summer season which included mountain biking, and all the summer activities that the resort offers. In his short time there he made many friends.
Jack was preceded in death by his grandparents, John Richard & Marion Main Taylor and Joseph Porter &
Beatrice Odom Thomas and his beloved sister, Julie Dawn Taylor.
He is survived by his parents, Robert Taylor & Jackilee Taylor, his brother Gregory James Taylor and sister-in-law Elizabeth (Leeli) Taylor of Milton, GA, two nieces Ashley Barrett Taylor and Morgan Elizabeth Taylor and one nephew Brooks Thomas Taylor.
A Celebration of Jack's life will be held at a later date.
Donations in Jack's memory can be made to St. Jude's Childrens Hospital in Memphis
