Kristin Michelle Trezise, 56, passed away surrounded by family October 21, 2022. She was born November 5, 1965 in Mesa, Arizona to Marilynn Melendy and Larry Trezise.
Kris loved to help and teach others. She helped with missionary groups in Budapest, Hungary for many years. She moved back to Grand Junction to help take care of her mother and fill her absence at New Horizons Christian School. For the last 19 years she has filled in some capacity a position at a school, ether as the head of school or a teacher. Most recently as a 5th grade teacher at Caprock Academy. She led by example to her students and peers and never stopped her pursuit to learn. She held the same standards for her students that she held for herself. These same standards made her a great friend and mentor to many.
Kris impacted a number of people we will never know, but through all her travels and years of teaching Kris has made so many close friends. She was loved by them dearly and loved them even more.
