Jaden Daniel Zimmerman, 20, of Corvallis, died Dec. 5, 2021, as the result of a tragic car accident.
He was born on April 28, 2001, in Corvallis to parents Dale and Amie (Riggs) Zimmerman.
Jaden spent his childhood as a military brat. He moved 10 times, visited 15 countries, and attended seven different schools in 11 years. After his dad's time in the Air Force ended, Jaden and family moved back to Corvallis, where he attended Linus Pauling Middle School, spent some time at College Hill High School, and graduated from Corvallis High School in 2019.
Jaden loved to make people laugh, be the center of attention, and pull off a good prank. Hanging out with friends and being outdoors were his favorite things to do.
Whether floating the river, hiking trails, exploring abandoned houses, climbing buildings downtown, or having a spa day at the hot springs, Jaden needed to be active. He also seemed to visit the emergency room more than the average person.
Throughout high school Jaden was involved with Young Life. He spent time volunteering in many capacities from an assistant coach for youth flag football, to building wheelchair ramps.
Some of his interests included studying the Bible, reading the U.S. Constitution, playing video games, taking friends to go shooting and developing various business ideas. Jaden was a true patriot who loved America and was passionate about protecting our freedoms.
Jaden loved his family, his dog Revan and his opinion. He is survived by parents Dale and Amie Zimmerman, twin brother Blake Zimmerman, younger brother Efrem Zimmerman, his dog Revan, grandparents Kevin and Jeannette Hoover, Dan and Lisa Riggs, Scott and Lori Zimmerman, great-grandparents Bob and Rose Rice, Ron and Diane Riggs, Juanita Merritt, Dale and Marilyn Huth, as well as a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, the fungus in his bathtub, and a collection of shot glasses and ammunition.
