Obituary: Jerimiah James Pebley
May 27, 2010
Jerimiah James Pebley began his life journey on Sept. 16, 1977, in Long Beach, Calif. He grew up in Big Bear, Calif., and graduated from Big Bear High School in 1995. After high school, he learned the trade of welding for Baileyand#8217;s Process Piping in Anaheim, Calif., but his love for snowboarding brought him back to Big Bear where he began working in terrain park development at Snow Summit Mountain Resort and eventually heading up the effort at Bear Mountain as a supervisor. After several years in Big Bear, Jerimiah moved to Truckee, Calif., and began working for Snow Park Technologies as a terrain park specialist which included building courses for the X Games, US Opens and working with countless resorts in such far away places as Japan, New Zealand and Europe along with many resorts within the United States. Jerimiah also worked on dozens of film and photo shoots over the years and most recently ended up back home in Big Bear working for Mountain High Resort. Over his career, he became one of the most respected terrain park designers and developers in the snowboard and ski industry.
Jerimiah loved snowboarding, fishing, exploring the outdoors, golfing, playing softball and enjoyed spending time with family, friends and his beloved dog, Seriah. Many will remember him as a devoted fan of the Lakers, Dodgers and 49ers.
Jerimiah touched the lives of many with his warm smile, loving personality and his quick-witted sense of humor. He is survived by his parents, Jim and Penny Pebley of Big Bear City; brother Robert Pebley of Big Bear City; sister Julie Klenner of Eagle Rock, Calif.; grandparents Robert and Gretta Lou Askey of New Plymouth, Idaho; uncles and aunts Bruce and Sharron Askey of Snowflake, Ariz., Robin and Tim Morgan of Big Bear City, Don and Cindy Conley of Solano Beach, Calif. and Bruce and Judy Pederson of Pismo Beach, Calif.; cousins Jodie, Sarah, Lisa, Karen, Scott, Brian, Sarah and Steve; nieces Kaylee and Hannah; and nephew Trevor Brard, among many loving family members and friends. Jerimiah found The Lord and was baptized at First Baptist Church of Big Bear Lake on Nov. 29 before heading home to his Savior on May 19, 2010. Known by his friends and family as Miah, he will be missed, but never forgotten.
Memorial Services will take place at 3 p.m. June 3, 2010, at First Baptist Church located at 41960 Big Bear Blvd., Big Bear Lake, Calif., followed by a celebration of his life at Snow Summit Mountain Resort. Remembrances may be made in the form desired by friends.
