Jasper was a life-long Kansas Citian and went to Central High School, Kansas City Junior College and Kansas City University (now UMKC).

He was passionate about the Chiefs (and was an original Red Coater for years), the Royals, KU Jayhawk basketball, playing golf at Wolf Creek Golf Club, his Catholic faith, traveling abroad with his loving and devoted wife and gin rummy. He was a hands-on family man and father and took his daughters everywhere he went and taught them everything he knew. He was also a proud veteran of the Korean War.
Jasper built a successful career in the Insurance Business and had his own Insurance Agency for many years. He told everyone he loved going to work and worked until the age of 78.
