Julee Rogers was born on August 4, 1970 to Gordon Olsen and Glenda Jorgensen in Provo, Utah. She grew up in Orem, Utah, and graduated from Orem High School. She attended Utah Valley University and received a degree in paralegal studies. She fell in love and married Nelson Rogers on June 11, 1992. Nelson adopted her daughter Crystal, and together they had Samantha and Nichole.
Julee was loved by many. She had an infectious laugh and could make friends with anyone. She was kind, generous, and went out of her way to help everyone. She loved being a wife, mother, and especially grandmother. She was a wonderful friend. One of her favorite hobbies was sewing, and she made amazing dresses and quilts.
She was preceded in death by her dad Dan Jorgensen and daughter Holly, who we feel needed her in heaven.
She is survived by her loving husband Nelson; her children Crystal (James) Greenlaw, Samantha (Dustin) Frank, and Nichole Rogers; her grandchildren Eisley, Trip, and Lilith; her mother Glenda Jorgensen and father Gordon (Melody) Olsen; siblings Brad (Carami) Olsen, Steven (Gina) Olsen, and Mark Olsen; and her many nieces and nephews.
