Volunteers of the Month: September - Jason Thaxton and Lance Thaxton
Jason Thaxton grew up in Sandy, UT where he attended Hillcrest High School. After he served an LDS mission to Independence, Missouri, he attended the University of Utah. He graduated in 2003 with a B.A. degree in Economics and a Minor in Business. GO UTES!!
Jason started a window cleaning company to pay his way through college. Shortly after graduating he sold his company and moved his family to Logan, UT, where he was hired to be the Resort Manager at Ideal Beach Resort, located at Bear Lake. After driving back and forth from Logan to Garden City for a year, he decided to ride the real estate wave that came crashing through Utah. Jason acquired his real estate license in two weeks and began remodeling and listing homes.
For the last eight years, Jason has been working in the home health and hospice industry. He is currently the administrator for Legacy Healthcare.
Jason has been married for 16 years to his foxy wife Kelli. They have 3 children, Whitney, Alix and Jaxx. They love Kaysville. Jason enjoys family time, especially if it involves going to a major league sporting event, golfing, working, and watching ESPN Sports Center.
Jason and his family have been Kaysville residents for eight years and they appreciate what Kaysville represents. Jason and his brother Lance have been coaching sports teams for basketball, soccer, baseball and softball in Kaysville for several years. Currently we are coaching 3 soccer teams and as long as my brother Lance does whatever I say, we seem to win a lot of games.
Lance Thaxton grew up in Sandy, Utah where he graduated from Brighton High. After serving an LDS mission in Brazil, he attended the University of Utah graduating in 1990 with a B.A. in History. He earned a law degree in 1994 from Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas. He then joined the United States Air Force (USAF) as a member of the Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corp. He was stationed in California, Alabama, and Utah during his six years on active duty.
In 2000, he left active duty and joined a law firm in Murray, Utah. Eight years later he took a position as civilian attorney for the USAF at Hill AFB, where he is presently employed. For the past 16 years he has also served in the USAF Reserves as a JAG. He is currently performs his reserve duties in Illinois as part of the United States Transportation Command legal office.
Lance and his wife LuAnn have lived in Kaysville since 2000 with their four children, Emily, Abbey, Andrew, and Eliza. They love Kaysville. Lance enjoys watching and participating in all sports, but he most enjoys being with his family.
Lance has spent the past 16 years coaching multiple soccer, basketball, and baseball teams. After his brother Jason moved to Kaysville, the two of them began coaching together. Altogether they have coached 30 soccer teams, 6 basketball teams, and 4 baseball/softball teams. For the past several years both of their families have enjoyed gathering together on soccer Saturday and cheering on the 3 soccer teams Lance and Jason currently coach.
