Mr. Nowak was born on February 9, 1950, the son of Edwin and Delphine (Brzezinski) Nowak in Marathon County. He graduated from Marshfield Senior High School and went on to receive an Associates degree. Jesse was united in marriage to Barb Dumler on April 10, 1981. He worked for the City of Marshfield as a Waste Water Treatment Operator.
Jesse was a member of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, in Marshfield. He cherished time spent with his family, friends and pets. Jesse enjoyed his back yard and a good game of Sheepshead. He looked forward to yearly travel excursions with the Munger family. Those that knew him best will miss his warm spirit and the pride he took in his daughter's accomplishments.
Mr. Nowak is lovingly survived by his wife, Barbara of Marshfield, and his daughter Sierra (Derek) Sedin of Las Vegas, NV. He is further survived by his siblings, Ann Marie Gross, Diane (Doug) Hanson, Tony (Darlene) Nowak, and Dave (Mary Atkinson) Nowak, as well as many other relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Edwin and Delphine, and a son, Micah Nowak.
"He was a man of few words. He was soft spoken and kind-hearted, a true "gentle" man. If there was ever a person who saw good in everyone it was Jess."
Mr. Nowak's family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to all their family and friends for the dedicated support and love through this journey. A special thank you to Pastor Peter Ruggles, for your spiritual guidance, and to Ministry Home Care Hospice for your kindness and care.
