Daddy + Jenn

It is with the heaviest of heart I officially take this very special moment to publicly share that on the evening of April 14th, 2014, at 7:50PM, my Daddy went home to be with our LORD. He took his last earthly breath surrounded by family, love, and the Holy Spirit.

As most of you know, my Daddy was battling Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer and was literally the strongest man I know. He fought the good fight until the very end and now He Lives – for Eternity – with our Heavenly Father.

Please keep us in your prayers. We are an incredibly close family and this grief is almost unbearable. We lean on JESUS to fill this void and carry us through. And although our hearts break, we are calmed knowing that Daddy is pain-free and with our SAVIOR. We look forward to the day we are all together again.

For those of you who knew my Daddy, you already know how extraordinary and wonderful he was. He selflessly loved his family and friends and was passionate about life. He touched so many lives in his 60 years and with so much life left; I hope we continue his legacy and that others see him, in us.

I am so beyond blessed to have the absolute privilege to call this man my Dad.


Please note:

A Celebration of Life is tentatively scheduled for May 4th, in Seattle, WA — Refer here (BillPederson.Org) regarding those details as they unfold this week. We will also be coordinating a Celebration of Life on Maui at a much later date. Make sure you are SUBSCRIBED (top right) to receive these TBD details. You may also send your condolences by leaving a comment here, below.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the HE IS GREATER | HE > Nonprofit Organization where ALL donations raised go directly to those affected by cancer. Visit here to donate OR paypal to Info@HeIsGreater.Org.


On this very Holy Day, Easter Sunday, I encourage you to listen to this beautiful song; Forever by Kari Jobe:

You can read the priceless lyrics here

I also encourage you to love on your family & friends. Count your blessings and take nothing for granted, because everything can change in a blink of an eye – tomorrow is not promised.

I no longer have the privilege to hug, kiss, or have earthly conversations with my Daddy. In light of my reality, please don’t allow Satan to get in the middle of your relationships and steal these precious moments — those gifts of life. Mend all those dissensions you may have with Grace and Forgiveness.

God Bless,

♥ Jenn & Family
