Jared Coursey Obituary

Jared David Coursey, 34, passed away January 25, 2024 near Craigmont, Idaho. Jared was born September 1, 1989, in Grangeville, Idaho, to David and Darla (Presnell) Coursey of Craigmont. Jared was the youngest of three children joining sisters Kayla and Kristina. 

Jared loved the outdoors. He loved hunting, fishing, and camping. His favorite place was the Southfork, which is a treasured place for the family. A sports family, Jared was athletic and did well in all sports. He graduated from Highland High School in 2008.

From a very young age Jared was engrained with a strong work ethic that he carried into adulthood. At ten years old he started his own lawn mowing business in Craigmont, investing in his own riding lawn mower. As his business grew, his Grandpa Bud provided him his own trailer he pulled behind the mower. The profits he earned afforded him his first vehicle by the time he obtained his driver’s license. Jared’s dad was always impressed with Jared’s work ethic and attributes it to generations of family dedication from both the Courseys’ and Presnells’, and in particular, Jared’s Grandma Dot, who was known for her commitment to a hard day's work.

Jared was quietly intelligent, able to work on and operate many types of machines. He was involved in farming, and was a farm lead for Meacham Farms for many years through 2018. He worked for the City of Lewiston from 2018 through December, 2023.

Jared became a father to his first son, Tyson, in 2007, whobecame a true blessing to the entire family. He met Haleigh Schmidt a few years later in 2011. They fell quickly in love. Their family was growing, and they welcomed son, Isaac, in 2013, followed by daughter, Olivia, the following year in 2014, the same year they married on December 31. They didn’t feel complete until they welcomed their youngest son, Henry, in 2020.

Family was everything to Jared, and he considered his family his best friends, from growing up with a strong family bond, to the one he and Haleigh created. His greatest joys with his kids include archery with his sons, Tyson and Isaac, and dance parties with Olivia and his little sidekick, Henry. Together they loved riding dirt bikes, side by sides, swimming, fishing, and Jared took a strong preference to having a hot tub and making sure any vacation stay was properly equipped with one. The Oregon Coast holds a special place for Jared and Haleigh. They honeymooned there and have been back several times with the kids and friends.

Jared had a great sense of humor, and was quietly witty. He also had a great love of music and expressed himself through it. Some of his favorite memories were attending concerts and music festivals with Haleigh and family and friends. 

Jared will forever be dearly loved by his family and friends and missed by all who knew him.

Jared is survived by his wife, Haleigh; children, Tyson(Clarkston, WA), Isaac, Olivia, and Henry of Kendrick. Parents, David and Darla of Craigmont. Sisters, Kayla (Josh) Sidwell of Kennewick, WA, and Kristina (Casey Wilsey) Stamper of Grangeville; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, in-laws, and nieces and nephews.

Jared is preceded in death by grandparents, Harold (Bud) and Dorothy (Dot) Coursey, and James (Biddy) and Shirley Presnell; uncle, James Coursey; cousin, Colby Thomason; and brother in-law, Dustin Stamper.

A funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, February 10, at Craigmont Community Church, 304 Halliday St. If you so wish, attendees are encouraged to come wearing Jared’s favorite color, forest green.

The family expresses sincere thanks for the many condolences received and with appreciation suggests memorial gifts be donated to the online GoFundMe account for Haleigh and the kids, or at Cottonwood Credit Union. Arrangements are under the direction of Blackmer Funeral Home, Grangeville
