Death takes the body

Our minds hold the memories

Our hearts keep the love

Our faith lets us know

We’ll meet again


Jason James Ulibarri

Our beloved son and brother, Jason James Ulibarri, age 36, a resident of Wikieup, Ariz., unexpectedly passed away on March 16, 2023.

He was a Belen Eagle football player and a graduate of Belen High School. Jason worked as an EMT. He lived in Belen and Alaska during his childhood with his family.

Jason was always looking for a new adventure, excited by new experiences living in multiple states and meeting new people. Some of his passions were playing guitar, camping, swimming and kayaking. Jason also enjoyed working on and riding his motorcycles.
