Todd is survived by his parents, wife, and three sons: Matthew Todd Jewell (Morgan), Joshua Michael Jewell (Andrea), and Jacob Brice Jewell (Brianne). He was the cherished big brother to his sister, Janet Jewell Childs (Norman), and a wonderful uncle to her daughters, Kristen Holland (Wes) and Kaylee Childs. He also leaves behind Rusty, his faithful canine companion. Todd lived for his family and he will live on in them.
An avid runner and cyclist, Todd had completed several marathons. He loved a good cup of coffee and hanging out around a campfire with his family. There was nothing more important to him than spending time with them.

Serving as pallbearers are Matthew Jewell, Joshua Jewell, Jacob Jewell, Wes Holland, Norman Childs, Dougie Bryant and Bud Handly.
