Chase Alexander Shott, 26, Roscoe, ended his journey on earth and began his eternal journey with God on October 18, 2017. Chase died hiking in the Beartooth Mountains by Mystic Lake, Montana due to sudden changes in weather conditions. He was born on his dad’s birthday, July 5, 1991. Chase graduated from 8th grade at Concordia Lutheran School and from Rockford Lutheran High School in 2010. He earned his Associate’s degree and personal training certification from Rock Valley College in 2012 and his BA in Kinesiology from NIU in 2015. Chase interned at NorthPointe Health and Wellness campus and was hired there. He continued his education and graduated from Bodycraft Wellness and Massage Center with a certification as a massage therapist on October 7, 2017.

Chase had earned the rank of Eagle Scout and loved primitive camping and was known for his love of climbing. In the past 4 years he had participated in a Tough Mudder Challenge, 2 Hustle up the Hancock runs, and a Spartan Race. In recent years, he had traveled with family and friends to WI, OK, MI, MO, FL, SC, CO, AZ, and Ireland. He was now on his much anticipated solo journey to the Western US.

A special shout of gratitude to Andrea Miller and Randi Paxton, our Montana “angels”. Chase will always live on in the heart of his adoring mom who admired his zest for life.
