We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at SUMMIT Funeral & Cremation
Jerre Jordahl, 76, of Rosemount, MN, passed away on July 11, 2022. Jerre was known to make people feel at home in his company. He loved making people laugh and made friends easily everywhere he went. He believed in taking care of others and remaining humble. Nothing made him happier than being around his loving wife, his children, and his grandchildren (and Woody the dog).
Jerre was born on May 15, 1946 to Harold and Bonnie Jordahl in Sioux Falls, SD. After graduating from Luverne High School, Jerre went on to study business at Mankato State. After graduating, he went to work in the finance and banking industry, where he made his career. He retired from The Salvation Army after thirteen years of working in Planned Giving where he enjoyed the opportunity to assist those who needed help.
In 1979, Jerre married his best friend, Kathleen, and stayed by her side for 43 years, owing in no small part to his great charm, but also his selflessness, humility, and aversion to complaining. He was, it must be said, the most gentle soul, a man who never harmed a living thing and was happiest simply being around family.
Jerre had a fantastic sense of humor and loved telling stories and making people laugh. His love of the outdoors was a thread woven throughout his life. He cared deeply for others, and for the state of our world.
He is preceded in death by his parents and brother, Jon Jordahl. He is survived by his sister Janine (Gary) Papik, his wife Kathy, son Grant (Karin), daughter Katie (Bryce Blilie) and his grandchildren Autumn, Violet, Magnus, and Ryker.
A small celebration of life will be held by Jerre’s family at a later date. His family welcomes donations to a charity of your choice in honor of Jerre’s life.
