Notes:   Jae was born in St. George, Utah, in 1942.  During his childhood, Jae lived wherever his father, an army officer, was stationed, giving Jae encounters with other cultures, many opportunities for adventures, and instilling in him a life-long passion to be on the move and see new places.  He lived in Panama, Japan, and in several areas of the United States before returning to Utah to finish high school.  In 1960 he graduated from Logan High School and soon thereafter enrolled at Utah State University, where he would meet his future wife, Kathleen.

Always committed to his faith, Jae interrupted his schooling and left his sweetheart to serve as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in southern Germany from 1963 to 1965.  After returning from Germany, Jae and Kathleen were married in Salt Lake City in 1965.  Jae went on to complete his business degree at the University of Utah.

After graduation from college, Jae was hired in 1969 by Wells Fargo Bank, where he would remain an employee until his retirement in 2011.  After working a few years in northern California, Jae was transferred in 1973 to southern California, a move that brought Jae and Kathleen to Glendora, a community they would grow to love and the place where they would raise their six children.  Jae's quick intellect, hard work, and common sense propelled him into leadership positions at Wells Fargo.

Jae had a gift of leadership and was called upon to serve his church and Savior in many different capacities.  He was a counselor to several bishops, a bishop himself, and a member of the high council, dedicating much of his time, in particular, to the service of the youth and elderly.

Jae was 71 when he passed away unexpectedly, but peacefully, in 2014 at his second home in the Cottonwood area of Salt Lake City, Utah.
