Patrick “Fat Rabbit” Jump
Patrick Leroy Jump departed this earth on the evening of Dec. 26, 2022. He was born on April 27, 1945 to Charlette Cole of Raymond, raised around many aunts and uncles.
Pat always told stories of what it meant to be on time for the dinner bell.
Patrick graduated from Raymond High School where he was a standout left guard on the high school football team.
After high school he married Jerry, and together they had a daughter Julie.
After a divorce Pat met the love of his life Donna Jo Aka Curley. Pat and Donna resided in their home together for 37 great years often laughing and joking about each other. Donna had two children Shane Chapin and Tammy Chapin that Pat loved and treated as his own.
Patrick worked almost all of his working life for Weyerhaeuser, starting out in the saw mill in Raymond then working in the riggin’ out of the Aberdeen branch and finally finishing his long career in the road construction department. Throughout his years in the woods he was always known as the fat rabbit on the CB and was proud of it.
Pat enjoyed raising his children and playing with his grandkids. He enjoyed camping with his daughter when she was growing up along with going hunting with his son Shane, grandson Bo and best buddy Mac Chapin. Together there were many fond memories. Pat enjoyed going on trips whether it be to the local casino for the night or a long trip to Cabo with his daughter Tammy and wife Donna.
One of Pat’s favorite hobbies was playing golf which he enjoyed doing with family and grandchildren, especially passing down his knowledge of the game which he had so much of. The Seattle Mariners and the Seahawks where always a topic in the house. Good or bad, he was always behind his teams.
Patrick is survived by his wife Donna Jump of the family home in Hoquiam, his daughter Julie and John Lukas of Woodinville, son Shane and Dana Chapin of Cosmopolis, grandson Bo and Natasha Chapin of Cosmopolis, grandson and grand daughter Justin and Olivia Lukas of Woodinville and one great-granddaughter.
Patrick was a great man who treated everyone he met with respect and was always full of laughter. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
