Jason “Jay” Paul Myrick, 48, of Blue Springs, MO passed away unexpectedly April 8, 2023 from sudden cardiac arrest. He was born August 28, 1974 to Jack Russell Myrick and Susie (Lintner) Myrick. He was a graduate of Blue Springs High School and worked at Zarda BBQ, where he formed many lifelong friendships. When he started working at Sterling Fitness he realized his passion for health and nutrition and eventually started his own business: Fitness Colosseum. He sold weights, work out equipment, supplements, and offered personal training sessions for many years. After the close of the business, Jason worked at Sterling Industries as a fence installer and paint striper for many metro area Quik Trips; at Guier Fence as a fence installer; at Precise Forms as a welder; at GSC as an office furniture installer and residential Christmas lights installer (which he loved); and most recently at Integrity Building and Creation (owner) designing custom deck and fence builds.
Jason has exemplified his strength of will and determination in many ways throughout his life, most notably with his 5+ years of sobriety (this June would’ve been 6 years), and his perseverance in managing his Parkinson’s symptoms (diagnosed about 3 years ago). He loved his family and friends with all his heart. His loyalty to those he loved was unmatched. His desire to help people in any way he could motivated him to be the best version of himself. He loved to laugh and make others laugh, he loved getting a good deal and thrift shopping, coaching/playing volleyball, bowling, baseball, working out, designing and building things, fast/loud cars, 80’s and 90’s rap and rock music, 4th of July, Christmas, Greek mythology and gods, he loved mentoring people, tattoos, giving people a hard time and being sarcastic, cooking/grilling food, his mom’s fried chicken, and the KC Chiefs.
He is survived by his mother Susie Myrick of Blue Springs, MO; sister Heather Camp of Blue Springs, MO; daughters: Myah Myrick (mom Shannon Myrick) of Grain Valley, MO, Sydney Myrick (mom Angie McGeeney) of Parkville, MO; nieces Courtney and Katie Camp of Blue Springs, MO; Brother-in-law: Greg Camp of Grain Valley, MO and girlfriend Deana Hayes of Liberty, MO.
