Landon James Gressman, beloved son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend was tragically killed in a jet ski accident on Saturday, June 17, 2023, on his 18th birthday at Lake McConaughy in Nebraska. He is survived by his parents, Ryan and Cheri, his older brother Jacob, younger sisters Ashlynne and Lauren, his grandparents Gil and Lori Jaramillo, Thomas Gressman and Diane Gressman as well as many other family members and friends.
Landon was born and raised in Highlands Ranch where he was a recent graduate of Mountain Vista High School, where he played on the football team. He grew up playing basketball, baseball and football. He had a newfound love of playing golf with his father, brother and his friends. Some of Landon's hobbies included all the boy things like Star Wars, Legos, anime and gaming. For those lucky enough to know and love Landon, we knew him as an adventurous and driven kid, when he wanted to do something, he wouldn't hesitate, he figured out a way and he did it! Landon was loveable, caring, had a smile you could see in his eyes and gave the best hugs. Landon was planning on becoming a commercial airline pilot and with his drive, work ethic, and his bright mind there is no doubt that he would have accomplished any goal he had set for himself. Landon made an everlasting impression on everyone who was fortunate to know him, he is forever loved, and we treasure the memory of his beautiful soul.
