Much-Loved Employee of Los Feliz Bookstore To Be Remembered Saturday

Justin Jasper passed away at the age of 35 last week.

Skylight Books lost a very beloved employee last week when Justin Jasper passed away at 35.

Skylight, an independent bastion in Los Feliz for book lovers, said this about Jasper on its Facebook page:

He was one of the driving forces behind the awesomeness that is Skylight Books, and one of the kindest and smartest people that you would ever meet...An intellligent lover of the weird and wonderful, his humor, insight, anarchic energy and creativity will be missed by all of us. 

Jasper came to Skylight after working for used-book mecca Brand Books in Glendale for seven years. He was there for four and a half years, according to a Skylight flyer.

The cause of his death has not yet been made public. Family members originally posted news of the death on the Skylight Facebook page.

A memorial for Jasper will be held Saturday at noon at Skylight Books on Vermont Avenue.
