Senior Chief Jason Deisch Martel

JUNE 1, 1974 — JULY 7, 2023

With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Jason Martel, a beloved husband, father, friend, and veteran. Born June 1, 1974, Jason left us too soon on July 7, 2023. His absence leaves an unfillable void in the hearts of his loved ones, but his spirit lives on through the countless lives he touched.

Jason is survived by his beloved wife, Nikole Martel, who shared 25 years of marriage with him. They met in January 1998 on Super bowl Sunday, when he helped her with her car battery. Jason was 23 and Nikole was 18 when they met in Portsmouth New Hampshire. Others have said that they were like magnets, no matter what happened in their marriage, they always found their way back to each other. Nikole has said that he was her best friend, who constantly motivated her to reach for the stars while she was his anchor.

Jason cherished his four children, Elizabeth (24), Bradley (23), Thomas (21), and Andrew (17). His spirit of warmth, kindness, and devotion was reflected in his role as a doting father, raising them with great love and care. Jason also held immense pride in his 25 years of dedicated and commendable service in the Submarine Community of the U.S. Navy.

He also was an avid Harley Davidson rider, having ridden since he was 16 years old. His Road King was one of his most cherished possessions, riding it all across the country.

A memorial service for Jason will be held on August 2, 2023 at 10:30 AM, at the Tahoma National Cemetery. The ceremony will be a celebration of Jason's life, legacy, and the lessons he imparted to us all to live life to the fullest and foster genuine connections.

Jason had a personality that would light up any room. He was warm, kind, devoted, and had a humorous spirit that was contagious. He left a positive impact on many lives and careers, demonstrating a unique humility. Jason's legacy of a loving family and friends spread throughout the world bears testimony to the remarkable life he led.

Jason Martel was not just an ordinary man; he was a beacon of light in the lives of many. He may not be physically with us anymore, but his teachings, memories, and love will forever be etched in our hearts.

Arrangements entrusted to Cook Family Funeral Home of Bainbridge Island, WA.
