Jason Paul Telleen was a native and lifelong resident of Ft Collins, He was the only child of Paul and Patricia Telleen. He was the love of their lives.

After graduating from Ft Collins High Schol in 2004, Jason attended and graduated from Front Range Community College in 2007. Jason was very mechanically inclined and had a love for all things automotive. There was nothing that he could not repair, replace or redesign as needed.

After graduating from FRCC, Jason owned and operated a carwash in Loveland and a limousine service. He was self-taught in learning how to maintain and repair all of the car wash equipment, even rebuilding pumps for the bays in the equipment room. Then in 2012, Jason purchased a vacant commercial condo in Loveland and started his own automotive repair business, 66th Street Auto.

Jason was a friend to all who knew him. He dearly loved his friends and his family. He loved life and had a very bright future. Jason was only 37 when he was taken from those who loved him. This was a devastating loss, as he was a kind, compassionate, giving and loving son who took very good care of his mother, Patricia.

His devastating loss has been unbearable for his mother and she wrote the following poem for her son:

Dearest Jason,
My beautiful, perfect, precious son,
His mother’s only child,
His brilliant mind second to none,
With a heart so sweet, kind, and mild.
A careless driver took you away,
And my heart will ache for you until my last day.

In honor of her beloved child, whose life was tragically cut short, Patricia has selflessly chosen to establish this memorial endowment. With profound love and remembrance, she has directed the proceeds from his life insurance to create an enduring legacy in his name. Through this Endowment, we honor his memory and extend support to deserving individuals, echoing the kindness and generosity he embodied.
