Which Title(s) Do I List?

Resumè-filter: One of my jobs included a number of title changes. This is complicating my attempts at an efficient, informative resumè. Your help vastly appreciated.

Job before last was a Big Deal Job and represents half my employment of the past decade. I held many roles, learned many things, and each one required a different set of skills and abilities. It seems I should leverage that...or at least pick the one that best exemplifies my time there.
Added difficulty: the last one had very little to do with my actual skills/talents/responsibilities and was mostly a final stop before being speed-bumped out due to disability/organizational politics.
Here's my progression & how long I spent in each role:
- Operations Manager - 8 months
- Project Manager (no certificate) - 1 year (overlaps with above for entirety)
- Product Planner - 3 years
- Product Operations Coordinator - 1 year
- Escalation Response Coordinator - 2 months
I'm using a resumè template that breaks things down as Summary of Qualifications/Core Competencies/Professional Experience/Employment History (name of company, title, location, years goes here).
So, how do I reflect what I did while there? Pick the one I did the longest? List them all? Something else? Admittedly, I'm hoping you won't say I need to stick to last role performed, as it had so little to do with my time there and who I am as an employee.
