Memorial Gifts & Donations


Jason Scott Riggs passed away on May 2, 2023 in Georgetown, SC. He was born on April 1, 1988 in Morehead City, NC, Carteret County.

Jason lived a life full of adventure, always tinkering with anything that had an engine ever since his dad gave him his first carburetor at the age of three. His natural talent of fixing things even included people. Jason loved being on the water, fishing, and wrangling all kinds of animals, with a special love for reptiles; and like “Crocodile Dundee”, he had a fearless and adventurous spirit.

Growing up in Carteret County, NC, Jason attended Cape Lookout High School and never met or knew a stranger. He had a contagious laugh and a compassionate heart. Although he didn’t attend church, his mother, Tammy, knows that Jason is in the arms of the Lord and is at peace.

Jason is survived by his mother Tammy M. Riggs, father Jonathan S. Riggs, stepfather James A. Wagnon, fiancé Jennifer Lynn, daughter Savannah N. Riggs and son Charlie Zoblisien, two step-children whom he loved as his own Justin W. McCandless and Taryn P. McCandless, brother Dalton Davis Riggs, paternal grandfather David R. Fulcher, Uncle Daniel E. Morrison, Aunt Linda Joy Hart, and cousin James Callans and his wife Teresa.

Jason is preceded in death by his maternal grandparents Mary Puchalaski Morrison and Daniel T. Morrison, paternal grandmother Lionel Taylor Fulcher and paternal grandfather Ralph Riggs.

Jason made a lasting impact on the lives of those who knew him and he will never be forgotten. He was a loving son, father, and friend. He brought joy and love and laughter to all he knew and his spirit will continue to live on through all his family and loved ones.

“For today, I can share that in Heaven above, God has taken my hand and I am complete, I am love.”

Rest in peace, Jason, you will be forever missed.
