Beloved son, brother, cousin, nephew, grandson and friend Aaron Jackson Vo Husmann of Shakopee passed away unexpectedly on the evening of April 10, 2023, at Mitchell Lake in the presence of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Aaron was preceded in death by his sister Jasmine, grandmother Joy Husmann, and grandfathers Thuan Vo and Khanh Bui. Aaron is survived by his parents Jamey and Thuy-Hang; his siblings Gabrielle, Henry, Vina, Viki and Elizabeth; his grandfather Lou Husmann and grandmother MyLe Vo.
Aaron was an exceedingly kind, considerate, compassionate, empathetic, energetic, driven, sweet, gentle, selfless, giving, caring, loving, pensive, intelligent, hard-working, responsible and funny young man. He could find humor in nearly any situation and had an infectious laugh that could fill a room. Aaron loved his family and close friends infinitely and was loyal to those he loved. He loved animals and aspired to be a veterinarian. He practiced his burgeoning craft taking care of and administering medication to the family dogs, cats, fish, and hamsters. Aaron loved to volunteer his time in the nursery at Grace Church and was beloved by the toddlers in the Dolphins room.
Aaron was a creative chef and confident grillmaster. He was considered a foodie by his family and would willingly fix a hearty meal for the entire family if we asked. He loved embracing his Vietnamese heritage with a good bowl of Pho. He also loved trying new foods as well as good steak and sushi.
Aaron was passionate about and had an insatiable thirst for knowledge of cars and trucks. He loved his Hot Wheels and Lego car collections. He could tell you the make, model, trim level, production year and engine specs of just about any car we saw on the road. He loved his Toyota Tacoma and was meticulous in its care. He was proud of his immaculate driving record.
Aaron loved fishing and spending time outdoors. He always kept his fishing rod behind the second row of his truck. He loved the family camping trips and was looking forward to taking CCC in the spring and backpacking in the fall at EPHS.
There will be a visitation at the Grace Church Chapel on Friday, April 21, at 1 p.m., with the Celebration of Aaron’s Life at 2 p.m.
At the visitation, a basket with notecards will be provided for guests to share their memories of Aaron. People may either write a message at the visitation or take a notecard with them and mail it to the family at a later time.
For those unable to attend in person, the service will be livestreamed.
In lieu of flowers, please direct memorials to: The Grief Club of Minnesota, 2025 Coulter Blvd., Suite 100, Chanhassen, MN 55317.
