Jason Tynkila, DMD

December 31, 1973 — March 9, 2024

Dr. Jason William Tynkila DMD,

Born 12/31/1973, to loving parents, Bill and Nancy Tynkila; left us March 9th, 2024, in Ilwaco, WA.


A 1992 Honors Graduate of Knappa High School, 1996 Honors graduate of Lewis and Clark College,  graduated from OHSU Dental School with honors in 2000 with a new wife and baby on the way, and practiced in Pendleton, Oregon, until 2005 when he purchased a practice in Long Beach, Washington where he faithfully served his community until his recent passing.


Jason was a DaVinci of his time. He excelled at everything he did and his range of talents were never ending.


His life at the coast, hunting, fishing, clamming and our daily beach drives were his constant joys, and the memories volunteering with youth sports were most cherished. 


Dentistry, his chosen profession, was his way of serving people. Rather than Dr., it was always: “Hi I’m Jason, what can I do for you?". He took great pride in being able to help others, any time day or night.


 A man of great wisdom, knowing that Time was the most valuable gift, spent it wisely, doing the things he loved with the people he loved. Jason’s love of life was boundless and he shared that joy with all who knew him.


He is survived by his Loving wife Misty, sons Reese, Danner, and daughter Aili. Parents Bill and Nancy Tynkila, grandfather Ray Tynkila,  Brother Lucas, his wife Tracy, and their 3 children Kaisa, Aiden, and Avery.  His In-laws, Sue and Russ Farmer, Brother in Law Chris Wade, his 3 children, Kamryn, Kol, Karsen. Sister in law, Kim Lewis and her Daughters Mackensie, and Olivia Lewis, brother in law Jason Farmer and his wife Kerry, and their 3 children, Karolina, William, and Anneli,  He is survived by many loving  aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family, and many loving friends and acquaintances from across the Pacific NW and beyond.


He was a man of great Compassion, Kindness, and Love for All, and will be sorely missed by all who knew him; and in our memories, he will always be with us and live on.


In lieu of flowers please consider a random act of kindness to a stranger, family, or friend, or a donation to a favorite charity.  We are grateful to all who knew him and all the light and joy they brought to his life during his time here with us on Earth.
