Jason J. Fritz
Jason was born July 2nd 1978, son of Jerrold and Marliss (Rux) Fritz, in Wausau. After graduating from Wausau West High School, in 1996, he worked for Golden Guernsey Dairy, in Wausau. After living in Madison for several years, Jason returned to the Wausau area. He had been working as a crane operator at Merrill Iron and Steel for the past two years.
Nothing was more relaxing for Jason than spending the weekend fishing with his fiancée, Judy, in the Minocqua area. He enjoyed gardening, especially growing peppers, which he would share with his dad. The hotter the better! He loved to cook and grill; and play cards and cribbage. His smile was contagious and he loved to laugh and was a practical joker. Jason's family was important to him and they will cherish the memories made together over the years.
On Wednesday, April 2nd 2014, Jason Jerrold Fritz, passed away unexpectedly at his home.
He will lovingly be remembered by his parents, Jerrold and Marliss, Rib Mountain; fiancée, Judy Cleveland, Ringle; three sisters, Michelle (Doug) Degner, Weston, Debbie Fritz, Wauwatosa, and Rhonda Frank, Schofield; six nieces and nephews, Codi LaPorte, Garrett, Victoria, and Alex Degner, Mandy Patterson, and Mitchell Frank; two great-nieces, Allyssia LaPorte and Lyla Degner; great-nephew, Logan Zastrow; many aunts and uncles; other family members and friends; and his beloved Labradors, Jasmine and Rex.
