Memorial Service Planned for Hiker Who Went Missing in Glacier National Park – Jakson Kreiser

HUDSONVILLE, Mich. (AP) — The family of a 19-year-old West Michigan man who never returned from a day hike in Glacier National Park has scheduled memorial services for the teen.

Jakson Kreiser was a seasonal worker at Lake McDonald Lodge in Montana who officials believe was trying to hike across treacherous terrain from Hidden Lake to Avalanche Lake on July 27.

Kreiser’s family wrote in his obituary that “… Jakson found heaven with an endless view of snow-capped mountains, tumbling waterfalls and cool glacial lakes.”

Park officials recently scaled back the search after finding no new clues to indicate the teen’s whereabouts.

The family released a public statement thanking community members for their thoughts and prayers.

Memorial services will be 6:30 p.m. Friday at The Pinnacle Center in Hudsonville.
