I'm truly sorry for the loss of your dad. Years ago when I worked downtown, I enlisted his services. He was an exceptional doctor.
After moving to CS in 1997 as a nurse manager, I waited to choose my physicians until I knew which surgeons I would trust with my care. Each surgeon I asked recommended Dr. Jepson for my ophthalmologist. His manner of approaching patients as people he seemed to truly enjoy, rather than just another "eye" made him a standout. Dr. Jepson respected my 20 yrs as a nurse but didn't assume I understood the diseases in my eye. He would probe my knowledge then thoroughly explain. We always shared stories of the Dakotas; Dr. Jepson, Sioux Falls, and I, areas in ND. He was a model of what a medical professional and a person should strive to be. I had the privilege of working with Dr. Eric J. who continues his Father's legacy of caring not just curing. I do not know the rest of Dr. Jepson's family, but have no doubt that together he and his wife have given the world children who will touch others as deeply as Dr. Jepson did.
My heart goes out to Danny and Tom. I never knew your dad but many of our friends were his patients. I do know Rob Gardener very well and he spoke highly of your dad.
I was a patient of Dr. Jepson's for a
number of years, and it was always a
delight to see him. What a kind and
lovely man. I am so sorry to see that
he is no longer with us, and I send
my thoughts and best wishes to his
I would love to hear his George Bush visiting in the Nursing Home story again
I had the privilege and honor to work as one of Dr. Jepson's technicians for a short 7 years. He was a remarkable physician with a vast knowledge of just about anything. He was truly a great human being. His myriad of jokes could be evidenced by the burst of laughter in the clinic and the tears from the girls eyes. Dr. J loved life, and life loved him, although he was taken away from us too soon. He would often tell his patients that his wife Donna, kept him in line. He called her his "Queen Donna" so I guess that makes him King. God Bless you Dr. J, you will be missed.
