Our beloved Jon Jon was a son, brother, uncle, father figure, and dear friend.
He had a thirst for knowledge from a young age and spent his life mastering various skills by studying objects and concepts with great detail.
As a patriotic young man, passionate about protecting his country he made the brave decision to enlist himself in the national guard. He served his country as a corporal from 1965 to 1971, which happened to be peace time.
He was known as a selfless, intelligent, and kind family man who took on the role of a father figure to his many nieces and nephews.
Jon Jon was a history and science enthusiast with vast knowledge, which he loved to share with his loved ones. He enjoyed various hobbies such as stamp collecting, fixing cars, camping, bird watching.
Jon Jon loved spending time with his sister Sharon/Best friend they were rarely ever apart. Jon Jon loved working on cars with his younger brother Roger and having Sunday lunch chats with his late friend Mike Hauser.
In his final days, he found the most joy in sitting by the kitchen window overlooking the Jordan river and mountain range with his binoculars, a hot cup of coffee and a special treat.
John is survived by his brother Roger Jaensch, sisters Sharon Lee, Linda (Norbert) Worch and Marilyn (Mike) Gates.
Preceded in death by his Father and Mother Alfred and Della Jaensch, brother Raymond Jaensch, nieces Crystal Trujillo and Noel Olschewski and nephew James Gates.
We’d like to extend special thanks and gratitude to his primary caretaker/Sister Sharon along with Brother Roger, Niece’s and Nephew’s Jennifer, Dean, Lorin, Stephanie, Benjamin, Gorgine, Dre, Brittiny, Gino, Samara, Katie, Chauntel, Paul and the many hospice nurses.
Thank you for the love and comfort you provided, and for ensuring that his final days were as peaceful and comfortable as possible.Service Information
