Jaxton Oliver Mark Husmann {rest in peace my best boy}

I am truly heartbroken and at a loss for words. My heart is certainly aching like never before. Our precious Jaxton is now with Jesus. I don’t have a lot to say as I am still processing my son no longer being here with us.

We’d like every one to know how appreciative we are to have had the prayers and fasting for Jaxton’s healing.

The funeral will be held this Saturday, March 12th at 11am. The visitation will be at 10am at Randall and Roberts in Fishers / 12010 Allisonville Road, Fishers, IN 46038

We know Jaxton has touched a lot of peoples lives and the visitation and funeral are open to all who would like to attend.

14 days!

Family of 4.

At 7:35pm (his birth time) on Wednesday March 9th we pulled the ventilator tube to have Jaxton breath on his own. Unfortunately, exactly 30 minutes later his heart had it’s last beat.

    Lisa Im seriously trying to hold it together in front of the kiddos right now but all I want to do is cry and holding it together is not really working. I wish for even just a moment I could take your intense pain you are feeling right now. Your my best friend and sister and to know you are hurting absolutely kills me. The last picture of little Jaxton is absolutely beautiful without all of his tubes you can see his cute lil face. I am devastated I didnt get to cuddle him and love on him but I kinda feel like his name “Oliver” he has a little piece of me and its special. Praying for you night and day. xoxo

    There are no words that can truly say how my heart aches for your beautiful family! I believe that you are and exceptional couple and that will help you to get through this very difficult time by leaning on each other as well as your faith…If Jaxton had to leave the loving arms of his mom, dad and brother for a little while, he is in the best hands he could possibly be in until he is at home with his family again.

    You have all dramatically changed my outlook on my own life and my family and for that I can never thank you enough.

    God Bless!

I wish I could describe the pain I feel for you and how my heart has been changed by your family. I will never forget Jaxton. I’m in Michigan but will have family in Anderson, IN this fall. But even if we never meet, I’m hugging you from afar and loving your very special family. Thank you, for sharing your joy and your pain and your FAITH with me!

    Husmann’s!

    Praying for all of you during this very difficult time. The song from Casting Crowns has been coming to my mind and here are some of the lyrics:

    I was sure by now. That You would have reached down. And wiped our tears away, stepped in and saved the day. But once agian I say, Amen and it’s still raining.
    As the thunder rolls, I barely hear your whisper through the rain, “I’m with you.” And as Your mercy falls I raise my hands. And praise the God who gives and takes away.
    And I’ll praise You in this storm and I will lift my hands. For you are who You are no matter where I am. And every tear I’ve crid You hold in Your hand. You never left my side and though my heart is torn. I will praise You in this storm!

    We will continue to lift you and your family up now and in the days ahead!

    Hugs from Kalamazoo, Michigan!

    I am so sorry for your loss. My heart is breaking and hurts badly that Jaxton will not continue his journey here on Earth. Although I am reassured through faith in our Lord that Jaxton is resting peacefully in heaven. He changed hundreds of lives before he was born, thousands of lives in his 14 days on Earth, and will change millions as he watches over us from above. I will continue to pray for you everyday. I want to thank you for sharing your beautiful son with me and it was an absolute pleasure to get to know your family. Your faithfulness and love are amazing and something to be admired.
    And to baby Jaxton RIP little guy. How blessed I feel to have taken care of you. I pray you rest warm and snug with the Lord where breathing is an ease and pain is unimaginable. I hope I see you in Heaven one day, sweet boy!

Such a short life, but such a BIG LIFE that sweet boy lived. You are such an amazing mommy and Jaxton could feel your love for him every single day. I will not stop praying for you, sweet friend.

I want to you to know that I will be praying for you in the moments, days, weeks, and months ahead… this grief journey is long and difficult… there is a longing for Heaven like never before… Feel all that you need to feel. You grieve deeply because you love Jaxton so deeply. There is so much on my heart as I think of all that you are experiencing. Please know you are loved and prayed for by many! May you always remember how much our Savior loves you,even when it may not feel like it. He is always with you, even when He may seem somewhat silent… and He WILL carry you and sustain you through this all! I have been blessed by your witness and the precious life of your sweet little Jaxton… what a little warrior for our KING! Loving and praying for you all from Oklahoma…

Thank you for sharing your joys and sorrows with complete strangers. Your entries have been an inspirational and educational on so many levels. No one can own the feelings, thoughts and emotions you have because they are yours and you are entitled to them whether bad or good. Please know that your blog is a testament to your grace and eloquence and I do not feel that I speak alone when I say that your story has reminded me on a daily basis that things aren’t always as bad as they seem and that someone is always going through something much worse and having to deal with much bigger issues. I will continue to pray for you and your family. Be grateful for the 2 weeks of time you had with Jaxton because it allowed you to have a lifetime of memories and love. Peace be with you.

    • Lisa & Josh, May God bless you and your loving family at this very difficult time. Jaxton was a very strong little man. I just love the last picture of mommy & Jaxton without all the tubes. He looked so handsome & peaceful. He’s now a little angel along with our granddaughter, Grace Marie who went to Heaven to live with Jesus on 2/8/11. They are with Jesus now and are happy and feel no pain. They are His newest angels in Heaven. May God Bless them today and always. Love to all, Nancy

I have been watching and reading your journey over the past few days and was heartbroken to read of this last entry. I want you to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers, as well as many others. I wish you the very best and want you to know that Saturday I will be thinking of you even more. I wish you well.

I know that God is with you and that he will see you through this. It is the worst pain imaginable to lose a child, but God is there holding your hands. Only he knows the reasons why these things happen. Keep your faith and be there for each other. I am praying for your family.

    To the Sweet Husmann family…. I’m so
    sorry for your loss.  I grieve with you but rejoice knowing Baby Jaxton is whole and safe in his fathers arms. From life to death to life again. The loss of Baby Jaxton was heavens gain! Baby Jaxton was truly an angel flying to close to the ground. I know God will bring you peace and comfort in your time of need. I have faith that God will wrap his arms around you and your family and will carry you
    through this. Know that in Jaxton’s short life, he brought more Glory to God than most of us do in a lifetime. We may not understand why, or get the BIG picture behind Gods plan, but in time it will be revealed. You have really amazed me with your strong faith throughout your pregnancy and even after delivery. You have been a true witness to me and shown me how true faith works. I will continue to pray  for the Love of Christ to surround you ALL and lift you up. Jaxton was truly a BLESSING and there’s no words to express how much you inspire me. Your strength was a testimony within itself. Thank you so much for sharing Baby Jaxton with all of us and allowing us to follow you on this incredibly courageous journey of faith. Praying Psalms 147:3 for you and your sweet family: “He heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds.”  Much love to you and your family.

    Came across this Psalm tonight.
    Psalm 71
    2 In your righteousness, RESCUE ME and deliver me;
    TURN YOUR EAR TO ME and save me.
    3 Be my rock of refuge,
    to which I can always go;
    give the command to save me,
    for you are my rock and my fortress…

    14 As for me, I will always have hope;
    I will praise you more and more…

    19 Your righteousness, God, reaches to the heavens,
    you who have done great things.
    Who is like you, God?
    20 THOUGH YOU HAVE MADE ME SEE TROUBLES,
    MANY AND BITTER,
    YOU WILL RESTORE MY LIFE AGAIN;
    from the depths of the earth
    you will again bring me up.
    21 You will increase my honor
    and comfort me once more.

    22 I will praise you with the harp
    for your faithfulness, my God;

    Praying tonight for Him to give you the strength to not only function but to thrive and to know that He KNOWS you can’t handle this and never wanted this and only want your baby. And that He even mourns with us and feels and knows every SIGH that we have (Ps. 38:9). Nothing escapes Him. Praying for you to really experience Him in this dance between the darkest time of your lives and the closest you’ve ever been with the Lord. He is near to the brokenhearted (Ps. 34:18).

    I am so sorry to hear about your loss. My heart is aching for you guys! Right now, Jaxton is in the arms of His loving Savior with a brand new body. No breathing tubes, nothing! God did heal him… He just chose not to do it here. I’ve learned so much through this journey with you. I think one of the most important things that I’ve come to realize through your story and many others is that our kids are loans from God. They are not ours. We have them for a time and when God wants them home, he calls them to Him…however long or short we have them. They fulfill his purpose. As I was reading all the comments on your blog I see that hearts and lives were touched and even those who were not religious or did not know God were inspired by your little man and praying fervently for him. I know it’s hard to think that your son had to be the sacrifice of drawing people closer to God but that was His plan all along. I know that this doesn’t make it easier and that you’ve never realized that you could (as my pastor would say) “hurt so much and still be alive” but you and Josh have truly been an example of selfless love. You gave Jaxton a chance, even though you knew what the odds were… even after you knew it would cause your heart to break. I know you have a new journey of healing ahead of you. I will continue to pray for you and Josh and that God will guide and carry you through this difficult time.

    “Listen to me, O house of Jacob, all you who remain of the house of Israel, you whom I have upheld since you were conceived, and have carried since your birth.Even to your old age and grey hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.”

    Is. 46:1-3

    What to say at a time like this?!?! We have never met but Michelle Bradley and I have been freinds for years and I am so blessed and glad that she brought you into and your family into my life. I want you to know that aside from being a hot mess, I do feel truly blessed to have read your story. My heart hurts for you and I can’t imagine nor do I ever want to imagine going through the loss of a child. I pray that God gives you not only a sense of peace during this time but also a sense of reason. Some things we aren’t meant to fully understand and I get that, but I pray this is not one of those things. I know Jaxton is in heaven, healthy and completely whole once again and for that I am happy but I wish his “mission” on Earth would have been a bit longer. Crazy to know that God knows what he is doing even when we want something so much different. What an angel you were blessed with and now heaven is a little bit better because your angel is there waiting for you all. I will always remember this story and thank you so much for letting 1000’s of people hear it! Much love, many thoughts, and prayers for God’s humble grace upon all of you!

    Hugs and love from Southern California ❤

    Josh and Lisa, my heart breaks for you. I have been following your blog on a daily basis since I heard about Jaxton’s birth. We are members of PFB and we love you guys. We have been praying for you guys and for Jaxton’s miracle. I am so sorry that it didn’t happen here on earth. God has bigger and better plans for your son. Cherish the precious moments you had with him. He was a beautiful child that touched many lives. I can’t even imagine what u r going through right now. Our son spent 7 weeks in the NICU and we almost lost him on several occasions, but God spared his precious life. It was a very trying time but definitely brought us closer to Him. Hold on to Christ as he is holding on to you right now. Praying that u will be comforted and feel His arms of love wrapped around u. You guys are amazing people helping to change our world for Christ. I pray u will find peace in knowing that u will get to spend eternity with sweet Jaxton. Thank you for sharing him withall of us. The world us definitely a brighter place because of the time he was here on earth. We love you guys.

    Words cannot soothe your grief, I know. But know I find it so amazing that Jaxton was nurtured and loved effortlessly without pain, in your womb, to full term. If you find yourself wondering about his time here and the struggles he faced after he was born to this earth, take solace in the fact that he lived IN YOU, Lisa, and he knew a mother’s love in you, and he was not in pain and he was not struggling in you. You gave him life in you. And that is the most amazing gift. And now he lives, amazingly, in heaven. I’m so sorry he is not here on earth with you. I am so sorry for your loss.

    Dear Hussman family,
    I am so deeply sorry for your incredible loss. I have been following along and praying with my family everyday. I lost twin boys shortly after birth and it was a pain so deep that I thought it would never be eased. I am struggling to find answers in all of this. I find myself questioning why such God-loving, deeply faithful, beautiful people had to go through such a terrible heartache. Why does your family have to suffer to inspire and touch other people? It is all so very hard for me to see right now.
    I thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your story and sharing the life of your precious baby boy, Jaxton. It is not often that we get to actually see the impact of a life on others but it is clear the impact Jaxton had on everyone around him and around the world. I am sorry that you had to suffer so much for this. My family and I will continue to keep you in our prayers. I hope that you find peace.

I pray for each of you, for the loss of Baby Jaxton takes a little of the light from this world…but what a brilliant, beautiful light was shining from that little guy’s soul. He was so very loved and was blessed as you were to spend time in and with your loving family, always to be loved and cherished, until you meet again. Deepest sympathy

    You two are an amazing testament to the peace and comfort God can give through immense trials. I have been blessed to know you and blessed beyond words to have met and spent time with Jaxton.
    We will continue to pray for your family as you grieve the loss of your baby boy, but we will rejoice with you that we have a Heavenly Father who will take him into His arms where there will be no tears or pain. We praise God that though it seems so short now, that God gave you two weeks to kiss, hold and love Jaxton. I’m so so thankful that that first night was not his last.
    I love you guys and know that Jaxton’s life and your testimony of Christ’s strength and help in times of struggle has changed lives. To God be the glory.

    We will be praying for you guys daily.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for the way you have surrendered your lives to Christ and how you’ve opened up your hearts to share your magnificent and heartbreaking story with the public.  You have allowed the Lord to tell his story through your lives, and I see his face, character, and love revealed through all of it. I’ve been sitting here this morning weeping tears of joy, worshiping the Lord for the way he has been magnified through your lives and Jaxton’s life. I’m sure you never imagined that your blog would turn into a movement and stir up revival all across this nation! 

    As I was praying for you guys on Wednesday, I had a visual image of angels holding each of you, Lisa and Josh, as you were watching Jaxton. The angels were carrying each of you as if you were a baby, just as you had held Jaxton. This came to my mind unbidden as I was praying and interceding for you all. And I saw Jesus with his arms wrapped around you from behind holding you as tight as he possibly could. And now this morning, as I sat here worshiping, I saw in my mind a map of the United States, actually more like a globe, with a bright, bright, bright light shining from Indianapolis, Indiana and your radiant smiles, Lisa and Josh, shining through this light.  Your arms were raised to heaven in praise, and people could see this light everywhere. 

    This is the only the beginning of your story , and you and Josh are merely at the precipice of your ministry for the kingdom of God. I am so blessed that through prayer and through the unity of believers in the body of Christ I was allowed to be a part of this. And I will continue to be a part of it by lifting you up in prayer, especially now as you mourn. 

    “They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.” Psalms 126:5-6

    “And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” Daniel 12:3

  118. The lyrics to Steven Curtis Chapman’s song – With Hope- have been playing through my mind since reading this post.

    This is not at all how
    We thought it was supposed to be
    We had so many plans for you
    We had so many dreams
    And now you’ve gone away
    And left us with the memories of your smile
    And nothing we can say
    And nothing we can do
    Can take away the pain
    The pain of losing you, but …
    We can cry with hope
    We can say goodbye with hope
    ‘Cause we know our goodbye is not the end, oh no
    And we can grieve with hope
    ‘Cause we believe with hope
    (There’s a place by God’s grace)
    There’s a place where we’ll see your face again
    We’ll see your face again
    And never have I known
    Anything so hard to understand
    And never have I questioned more
    The wisdom of God’s plan
    But through the cloud of tears
    I see the Father’s smile and say well done
    And I imagine you
    Where you wanted most to be
    Seeing all your dreams come true
    ‘Cause now you’re home
    And now you’re free, and …
    We have this hope as an anchor
    ‘Cause we believe that everything
    God promised us is true, so …
    So we can cry with hope
    And say goodbye with hope
    We wait with hope
    And we ache with hope
    We hold on with hope
    We let go with hope

    Come to me all who are weary and heavy burdened and I will give you rest- Matthew 11:28

    I wish I could take some of your pain away, even if just for a little while. My heart is aching unbelievably for your whole family and baby Jaxton. You guys are a beautiful, strong, inspiring family and I will continue to pray that the Lord gives you the strength that you need to get through this tragic time. I have been touched forevermore by the courage, love and fight that your whole family has endured. My outlook on life has completely changed, and for that I thank you. Your love and trust in the Lord has been an inspiration to me. I am so sorry that you have to grieve the loss of your child. No parent should ever have to do that. What is amazing is that nobody could ever love sweet Jaxton more than the Lord and until you guys reunite, he will be in great hands. Love and prayers to you in the days, months, and years to come.

    Dear Lisa, I’m another one of the people you’ve never met, but I’ve been following your journey for the past few weeks (via Debbie Vinall). There truly aren’t words to express how my heart breaks for you over this unimaginable loss. I would do anything to take some of your grief away, but please know that you are being prayed for and loved on from far away by people you may never meet in person here on earth. I just pray that knowing Jaxton is in the arms of our Father, never knowing anything other than love from his earthly family and then God, will someday be able to bring you some comfort.

    Thank you for the honor of sharing your life with us all.

    I do not know your family but have been watching your blog through a friend of mine. My wife and I continue to pray for comfort for your family during your time of loss. I can only imagine the smile that Jesus had on His face when He was able to hold and comfort your dear son. Cling to the Hope that we all have in Jesus Christ and know that one day, Jaxton will greet you in heaven.

    “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I an going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am” John 14:1 – 3

    It is heartbreaking to even imagine what you, as the parents of this little boy, are going through. He came to earth for a reason! He taught so many so much! You will carry him with you forever, through the way you continue to live your lives! You will reach out and help others. I thank you for sharing your journey with us. So many have prayed. God heard the prayers, I just believe he did! You have been blessed by your son, even though this has got to be unbelievably painful….I can not even imagine. I am an employee of Randolph Eastern Schools in Union City and attend Wesley UMC. God bless you with strength, comfort and peace.

    Thank you so much for letting us share in this extremely difficult time and journey. My heart just aches for both of you.

    Your precious, young son has touched the lives of so many, and has brought many of us closer to God. He has brought so much glory to God, and has furthered (and will continue to further) God’s kingdom. Jaxton shall live forever in the hearts of those he has touched. I am truly excited to find out how he will continue to bring glory to God even though he is no longer with us.

    Though you are mourning the loss of precious Jaxton, may God give you peace with the knowledge that Jaxton has completed the mission God gave him. May we all follow in Jaxton’s tiny footsteps and complete the mission God has given us.

  153. This is a pain that I don’t understand.

    When prayer and fasting seems not to penetrate God’s heart-when the agony and pleas, begging, tears, and cries seem to leave Him unmoved, all that we are usually left with is a deep pain.. a song of complete disorientation in our hearts. A song much like the one the Psalmist sings in Psalm 88… asking God why he doesn’t give ear to his/our cries.

    My soul reason for sharing this comment today, is because I want you to feel permission to feel and even express your feelings of disorientation to God. It is not a rejection of your faith to tell Him that you don’t understand, that you feel He has been unjust, that you’re angry at Him.

    I don’t know for certain if you are even feeling any of these things, and if you aren’t that’s okay too.

    I am praying for you still. I have the wonderful little church where I work praying for you as well. My prayer for you this morning is that you will be able to be carried today by the prayers and faith of the community of the faithful who surround you when your wings are broken and your spirit can’t take flight.

    May you feel yourselves born up by the hundreds who are praying for you. May you feel the freedom to be broken. And may even the smallest of joys ignite hope and light within your hearts today.

Through the pain and joy your family reflects a Christian walk that teaches so many. A walk that I think of and aspire to as I face this life. I KNOW that through the Christ, God has given us salvation, redemption and eternal life… I also KNOW that through the example of You and Josh, COUNTLESS Brothers & Sisters are lead to the Cross. Jaxton is Blessed, Jake is Blessed, Josh is Blessed. All who share in your family’s reflection of Our Father who art in Heaven…WE ARE BLESSED. As a brother in Christ Jesus, I wish I could lessen your burden. However, as a humble child I pray… “Lord, thy kingdom come, thy will be done

    I am getting ready for Jaxton’s services this morning, and what is the first song I hear on the radio? “Christ has risen from the dead, trampling over death by death, come awake come awake, come and rise up from the grave, he has risen from the dead, we are one with him again, come awake, come awake, come and rise up from the grave.” And I just thought about Christ calling Jaxton with these words the moment he “feel asleep” here on this earth. And the second song I heard on the radio? “I wake up to find your glory defined, and I will finally bow at your feet, woah, I will lift up your name in honor and praise…” If only we could be so lucky as Jaxton is right now…I imagine his little baby perfect body just standing and praising God in His very presence! He is comforted in every way, every tear wiped from his face! He is sooo taken care of right now!
