Jeffrey “Jeff” James Jones Jr., 38, Wausau, died unexpectedly on Sunday, Jan. 15, 2017, following an industrial accident.
He was born on Dec. 27, 1978, in Wausau, the son of Jeffrey James Jones Sr., of Mosinee, and Patty Weller, of Bowler. Jeff attended Wittenberg-Birnamwood High School and most recently worked at Veritas Steel in Wausau, where he had been employed for the past couple of years.
Among his favorite pastimes, he enjoyed fishing, especially ice fishing, hunting, camping and being outdoors. Jeff had a very close relationship with his grandparents, whether it be sitting around shooting the breeze or hunting and fishing with Grandpa Lyle. Most of all, he loved spending time with his family, friends, three nephews and his dogs, Scruffy and Nelly.
He will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege to know and love him.
