Jonathan “Seth” Mitchell

January 20, 1979 –
 November 13, 2021


Jonathan Seth Mitchell passed away on Nov 13, 2021 in Dallas TX after a courageous yet challenging 6-year battle with cancer. He was the bravest, most thoughtful and passionate person we’ve ever known.

Seth is survived by the love of his life, his wife Nicole Mitchell and their 3 amazing children, Maggie, Ella and Harlan; his mother Cathy Mitchell of Richardson; his father and stepmother John and Laura Mitchell of Carrollton; his 3 loving sisters and their husbands, Kelli and Bobby Higginbotham of Tacoma WA, Sarah and Saul Beltran of Barcelona Spain, and Sara and Ryan Lumbley of Dallas; as well as 6 nieces and nephews.

Born in Waco TX in 1979 then moving with his family to Carrollton TX in 1990, Seth was a graduate of Newman-Smith HS in 1997 and UNT in 2002, earning a BA in Communications. Seth was an exceptional debater in high school as well as a sports-enthusiast; having invested time with WFAA Sports and The Ticket before moving to a successful career in marketing.

Seth worked for Grey Advertising Group after college before joining with a colleague and good friend to create Reed-Mitchell Strategic Design which eventually merged with 9th Wonder, an exceptional marketing company with offices in 3 countries. Ever the optimist, his creativity and innovation were a driving force behind its success. Seth made everything he touched better and smarter and considered his partners and team to be family.

Seth had an insatiable curiosity and desire to understand new concepts. He was a great listener, the best gift-giver ever, loved Broadway shows, countless well-written books and creative podcasts. His love of culinary exploration paired with excellent wines and a signature shoe and sneaker collection were legendary. However, Seth’s legacy, the endearing characteristic that truly defined him is an unconditional love for family and friends. We will forever and always love, respect and miss you, Seth.

For those with a desire to respond, in lieu of flowers please consider a memorial gift to one of Seth’s favorite non-profits including: the Dallas Cooperative Preschool, 11001 Midway Rd Dallas TX 75229,; or Stomping Ground Comedy, 1350 Manufacturing St #109 Dallas TX 75207,

I will miss experiencing his sparkle. I feel blessed that I got to work with him. My sincerest condolences to you, your family, and all his dear friends.

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
