Jerry and Dennise met and fell in love at Brigham Young University. Over their first years of marriage, the couple managed to secure 3 degrees as well as two children, Holli and Jordon.
When Holli was just a toddler, she showed herself to be extremely musical and eager to perform. Jerry and Dennise, musicians themselves, were pleased to instruct her. Soon her solos became duets when Jordon also displayed vocal abilities. Duets became trios with Heidi's birth and quartets with Jayson's. Soon after, Juston and Landon came along each bringing their own gifts of music.
After Holli's death in 2002, the remaining siblings have prolonged her incredible legacy through music. The family attributes its closeness to the gospel of Jesus Christ as well as the memory of Holli and her deep appreciation for family.
As the family has grown, and the children have married, the LeBarons have been blessed with even more fantastic singers as in-laws and grandchildren.
Jerry works as an engineer and accompanies his children on the piano. Dennise is a very popular elementary school teacher. They have been married for 37 remarkable years.
Jordon is the oldest living child and the leader of the family. He's very dependable and very witty. He can make anyone laugh, especially Angela who is always laughing. Jordon loves to work in the garden, read, and try to remember the Thai he learned on his mission.
Angela is a long-time student of music and former Nauvoo performer. She developed a strong tuning ear over years of playing the piano and the violin. Angela has a very bubbly personality and confidence that win over all who meet her.
The couple met in the music department while attending Utah State University. They have since been lucky enough to perform in hundreds of shows, concerts, and albums together as well as tour Europe singing with Angela's family who is also incredibly musically gifted!
Jordon works as a speech pathologist, and Angela teaches music out of their home studio.
They enjoy running, eating popcorn, and vacationing with their families. Jordon and Ange have three hilarious children, Asher, Chloe, and Bridger who have already shown some wonderful musical talents.
Heidi LeBaron Garn is not only gifted in the performing arts, but in the visual and written arts as well. She loves to paint, write stories, and make crafts with her three curly-haired girls, Evalyn, Elaina, and Lily.
Heidi loves travel and adventure. She has lived everywhere from Russia as a full-time missionary to the southern U.S. as a Space Camp Counselor and a Disney cast member. But her favorite adventure has been that of becoming a Garn.
She fell in love with her husband, Spencer Garn when they were both working at The Signpost, Weber State's student newspaper. Spencer had no musical experience before marrying his wife. He has since been a quick study as his new in-laws wasted no time throwing him into the show.
Spencer is an attorney for the United States Air Force. The Garn family is now stationed at a military base in Japan. In their time overseas, They have enjoyed making new friends, learning Japanese, and visiting Tokyo Disneyland. The rest of the family is extremely jealous...
It's the family joke that if Jayson is playing a board game with you, he's going to win. He's very thoughtful, and the family believes he's also very lucky. Nothing lures Jayson quite like a seemingly unsolvable puzzle.
Jayson was privileged to serve an LDS mission to Taiwan and learn Mandarin. He then attended Southern Utah University where he soon met his sweetheart, Karina, a fellow theater major. On the day of the release of the seventh Harry Potter film, both of them came to their shared class as the only two in full wizarding costumes. Obviously they were meant to be together.
Karina grew up in the northeastern corner of Utah. She was quickly drawn to Jayson's clever mind and love of the gospel as well as his amazing voice. Karina loves comedy, and it didn't take long for her to get Jayson hooked on sitcoms, her most favorite pastime.
After a very long engagement (at least by Utah standards) the pair was married in 2014. They have two amazing daughters, Nora and Maya who are the loves of their shared life. Jayson is a senior technical analyst for Motorola Solutions Inc., and Karina stays home to raise the girls.
Jayson and Karina live in Salt Lake City. They enjoy Marvel movies, playing racquetball together, making spreadsheets about anything and everything, and of course, Harry Potter. Both are Ravenclaws in case you wondered.
Juston & Kaitlyn
Juston has a natural ability to make all around him feel comfortable. He has such a big heart. He is very outgoing and loves to make people laugh, qualities which served him well during his two year mission to Ghana.
He is an accomplished drummer,, self-taught chef, and extreme sports enthusiast. Juston works as a scrub technician in the labor and delivery unit of LDS hospital in Salt Lake where he is known for his hard work and occasional songs for his patients.
Juston and his new bride, Kaitlyn Hipwell, recently finished up their undergraduate degrees in musical theater at Weber State University where the couple were cast as husband and wife and subsequently fell in love.
Kaitlyn hails from Ogden, Utah where the two were married in May of 2019. Kaitlyn served two performing missions in Nauvoo and loves all things musical. She works at the world-famous Garden Cafe on Temple Square and can often be seen on the stages of Hale Center theater.
Juston and Kaitlyn love nothing more than traveling, playing video games together, exploring their new neighborhood in downtown Salt Lake City, and spoiling their two goofy cats every opportunity they get.
Landon LeBaron just completed a two year church service mission at temple square in Salt Lake City. Landon has always been the moral compass of the family. He just knows what's right and wants to do it! He is also the youngest LeBaron.
Landon is autistic which means that not only can he quote every line of Napoleon Dynamite and recite thousands of college sports statistics, he also has a brilliant mind for music. The family often refers to Landon as a the LeBaron Pitchpipe.
Most days, you can find Landon working at Burton Elementary. But Landon spends his summers at Lagoon, an amusement park near his house. He works there as a train engineer. You'll know him by the big smile on his face.
Landon loves watching superhero movies, opening the door for everyone he can, and spending time with his older brothers whom he greatly admires. When he finishes up his bachelor's degree, Landon hopes to become a sportscaster and do all he can to promote Autism awareness and inclusion.
