Jaime Michael Corbin: 1983 – 2024

This weekend ,Jake’s life is being celebrated by friends on the Oregon Coast. There will be lots of laughs and tears. Below is Jake’s obituary. Please share memories and photos of Jake and yourself! We can’t all be together to celebrate and mourn, but we can connect here.

Jaime Michael Corbin, of Eugene, Oregon, passed away November 27, 2023 in Medford, Oregon at 40 years of age. Jake, as he was known to those close to him, was born September 23, 1983 to Thomas F. Corbin and Jamie Marie (Briggs) Corbin. Jake was kind, easygoing, intelligent, hardworking, and he was funny. He had a somewhat dry wit with some silly mixed in. He will be sorely missed. 

He grew up in Southern California with his siblings and parents until they moved to Wyoming in the mid-nineties. Jake graduated from Mountain View High School in 2002 and soon after he and some buddies packed up an old sedan and drove to Oregon. With a papasan chair strapped to the roof of his car, Jake and company headed west. They settled in Eugene, where Jake lived until shortly before his death. 

Jake had found his calling soon after arriving in Oregon, when he began working in an auto parts shop. He would eventually work for Napa Auto Parts for upwards of 20 years. Jake had a knack for retaining data and could rattle off the part number for the timing belt on 1994 GMC Suburban without missing a beat. 

In 2010, Jake started dating the love if his life, Lauren Even. Together they welcomed their daughter, Eloise Luna, in March of 2017. Jake adored Eloise and he will live on through his beautiful daughter, as well as through the immense amount of fond memories held by anyone who knew him. 

Jake was undoubtedly met by his older brother, Tom, upon leaving this earth. What a joyous reunion that must have been! Jake was also preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Halford Briggs and Dorothy Morris; his paternal grandparents, Boyce “Bud” and Joan Corbin; his uncle, Jim Russell; his parents-in-law, David and Leslie Even; friend, Amy Kalama; and brother-in-law, Stuart Douglass. 

Jake is survived by his mother, of Talent, Oregon; his dad, of Casper, Wyoming; his daughter, Eloise; and his life-mate, Lauren, of Eugene, Oregon; his older sister, Kate Miller (Cory); his nieces, Avery and Lenna, of Casper, Wyoming; his aunts, Jane Johnson (Bobby) of Gillette, Wyoming and Judi Russell (Jim) of Casper, Wyoming; and a lot of loving cousins and many great friends. 

A celebration of Jake’s life was held at a beach house on the Oregon Coast, perhaps his favorite place.
