Our beloved son, brother, grandson and nephew Matthew Jedediah Hall, passed away at the age of 16 on January 22, 2018.
Jed was born on October 29, 2001 to Allen Lawrence Hall and Amy Leigh Kosmider Hall who lived in Idaho Falls, Idaho. He spent his entire young life in Idaho Falls, as the youngest of two children.
Jed attended Westside Elementary from Kindergarten through Fifth grade, and then happily transferred to American Heritage Charter School in Sixth grade, where he stayed until his death. He was elected by his peers as a member of the Student Council in his Sophomore year.
He is survived by his parents, Allen and Amy Hall, his brother Christopher Sherwood , his Grandparents Patrick and Sally Kosmider and Honorary Grandparents Ed and Harriet Scannell who all live in Michigan, Uncles Timothy (April), Howard (Debbie) and Tom (Darla) and many cousins.
He was preceded in death by his Grandparents Frances and Adrian Hall.
Jed was a kind person, very caring and helpful to others. He was interested in many things, and enjoyed travel with his family, camping, marksmanship, building stuff with many different materials and exploring.
He played soccer for years and was a valuable team player. He and a couple of his teammates always raced to take down the net after every game, and then hang by their hands on the crossbar as long as possible.
He was a member of the Civil Air Patrol and was a leader who was always ready to help fellow cadets. He had competed and won a spot at a summer camp with the Air Force Pararescue. Everyone in the squadron thought highly of him and respected him.
He was always ready with a batch of his handmade peanut brittle for any fundraiser or birthday. Jed LOVED water and was always happy playing in it whether it was the ocean, a lake or a pool. Some of his favorite time was spent on Lake James in Michigan fishing for Bass and catching sunfish.
A Celebration of Jed’s Life will be held at 1:00 p.m. Saturday, May 14th, 2022 at Nalder Funeral Home, 110 West Oak Street in Shelley.
