Christian Charles Draayer


Christian Charles Draayer, born Jan. 11, 1976, grew up in Salt Lake City and Park City. In 2003, he graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of California, San Diego with a Bachelor’s of Arts degree. He achieved the highest departmental honors in Psychology and Philosophy with a minor in Law and Society. In 2006, he earned his Juris Doctorate from the University of Texas at Austin School of Law. He was also a member of Phi Delta Kappa honor society.

Christian leaves behind his mother, Susan Ocard Draayer, and his wife, Ashley Rothwell Draayer. He was preceded in death by his father, Chris Gene Draayer. Together with his father, Christian enjoyed a lifetime of active motor sports with a special love for snowmobiling, motorcycling and car racing. Christian was an avid outdoorsman and was excited about becoming a member of the Summit County Search and Rescue.

Christian and his wife led a beautiful life together filled with much love and many exotic travels and adventures. Christian will be severely missed by friends and family and will forever be remembered for his loving energy, giving nature and ability to make people laugh.

Christian was a brilliant young man with a bright future. Due to his untimely, tragic death, neither he, nor those who loved him, will ever realize his potential.

A private celebration of Christian’s life was held at his home in Park City.
