Jerome Oscar Bornn

Jerome Oscar Bornn of Erie, Colorado, died on May 27, 2019. Born in Santa Paula, California on April 13, 1972, Jerome grew up in Oxnard, California and cherished spending time at his grandparents ranch in San Luis, Colorado. 

Jerome is survived by Stacie Bornn and their two beautiful children; their son, Caidon and their daughter, Scarlet. Jerome loved his children and spent the last decade of his life dedicated to being a work-from-home dad to raise and care for his family. Jerome’s children were his greatest source of joy and contentment in this world. He was a proud family man who treasured his privacy and solitude with his loved ones. He valued the simple pleasures of the great outdoors, indulging on homemade veggie lasagne, and the gift of a warm hug. He is predeceased by his beloved father, Oscar G. Bornn.

Jerome found his passion for manufacturing as a young man and excelled at process efficiencies and organization. These talents could also be seen in the meticulous care he put into his home, designing and building constant, meaningful improvements. His hobbies included restoring old objects to new, such as his classic Chevy Chevelle, mid-century antique furniture, or unique found objects. 

Jerome had a vibrant sense of humor and delighted in a good laugh. He had an arsenal of jokes at the ready and enjoyed sharing a laugh with friends and teaching his kids the hilarity of a well-timed punchline. He adored listening to music and watching movies, but more specifically, dancing with Stacie in their living room and cuddling with his kids on the couch for a family movie night. 

Jerome passed away as a result of his long battle with depression, PTSD, and other mental health issues. Yet the memory of his laugh, his tenderness, and his love will live on through Stacie and his children.

 

“Suffering, loneliness, sorrow, discouragement, and death will be part of your journey, but the Kingdom of God will conquer all these horrors. No evil can resist grace forever.”

Remember me in the spring

When the flowers bloom

And robins sing

Call to me

And I'll be there

Like a breeze

Whistling through your hair

For I've never really left

I will never part

As long as there's a piece of me

Left in your heart

Let not your heart be troubled

For I am in a better place

Until we meet again

Through God's grace

Remember me in the spring

When flowers bloom

And robins sing
