Jace William Graft

Jace William Graft age 26 years old, of Ivins Utah, passed away at his home December 26, 2020.  Jace…now and forever spends his adventures in the Heavens, painting sunsets and lightning flashes, jamming all types of tunes with the angels, orchestrating a few pranks, and riding free.  Jace was loved and cherished by all. To know him was to love him and be loved by him. Jace… a superhero Dad, loving husband, a perfect son, a brother who was always there, the Uncle full of adventures and best friend to anyone he knew. There was never a time he wasn’t willing to give all of himself to those he knew, (as well as strangers) to help them or bring a smile to them. Humble, playful, creative, and strong in the truest forms. We already miss his hugs, laughter, smile, epic rap songs, dance moves, athletic ability, beautiful photographs, and his presence. Knowing Jace, we know he’s still close by, continuing to care for and love those who need it. Jace leaves behind a posterity of two beautiful children, Cozette Louise Graft and Cohen William Graft. Cozi and Cohen have the support team of all those that love Jace. Maddy was loved deeply by Jace and cherished the family they built together. Maddy and family promise to constantly remind Cozi and Cohen how much Jace loves them. He was the most patient, kind and loving Daddy. Cozi is looking forward to Christmas in Heaven with her Daddy, when the time comes.

Jace was born on April 6th,1994 in St George Utah to Pamela Condie Graft and Jay Frederick Graft, who resided at the time in Cedar City Utah. Jace married Madison Sersansie April 22, 2017 in Pine Valley, Ut. They had two children together; Cozette Louise Graft and Cohen William Graft.

Jace was born the last of 6 children. Each of his siblings made a great impact on him throughout his life. The family moved from Cedar to Santa Clara Utah when he was one year old.  Jace briefly lived in Tremonton and Garland Utah, before moving back to Santa Clara and then Ivins Utah.  He graduated from Snow Canyon High School(SCHS), where he enjoyed most subjects, especially the sciences. Medical terms rolled off his tongue as if that was his first language. Jace played football for many years within SCHS’s programs starting as young as 11 and finished in his senior year as a free safety and receiver. Jace also competed with the track and field team, including competing at the state level in long jump, high jump and Javelin. Jace was called to the Jamaica Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day-Saints. He was impressed by the people he met there in their humble circumstances with such great faith and service. He continued his education by taking classes at Dixie State College in St George Ut and desired to work in the medical field. Jace was employed in the automotive industry as a manager to support his family while he attended college.

Jace is survived by his children, Cozette Louise Graft and Cohen William Graft, who reside in St. George Ut with their mom, Maddy Sersansie; his parents, Jay and Pamela Graft of Ivins, Ut.; his sisters, Kari Graft Finley(Bryan) of Santa Clara Ut, Sara Graft Grover (Cody) of Tremonton Ut, Amie Graft of St George Ut; his brothers, Tyrel Dustin Graft (Carianne Somerville) of Mesa Az and Clayton James Graft (Bryanna Benson) of Roy Ut; nieces and nephews: Kamree, Brylee and AJ Finley, Cristian, Jaxon and Korali Grover, Brielle, Audrey, Evelyn, and Felicity Graft, who each adore him relentlessly, as he did them. Jace is also survived by his  Grandma ‘Jeri’ (Valda Geraldine) Harris Condie and Grandpa George William Graft.
