On the afternoon of Sunday, March 19th, with the sun shining down and the first signs of spring in the air, Jerry LaSee passed away peacefully and surrounded by his family. He put up a short and valiant fight, but ultimately lost to Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis just a few months after his 66th birthday.

Jerome “Jerry” Harold LaSee was born to Harold and Verna LaSee on January 1st, 1951 and raised in Stratford, WI. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin – Stout, he spent his entire 39-year career with General Electric and many years building MRI machines for hospitals.

Jerry married his college sweetheart and best friend, Barb, on July 10th, 1976. They remained happily married for the next 40 wonderful years and raised two children, Tom and Claire, in their loving home. Jerry loved to joke and laugh, but loved even more to lend a helping hand to his family, his friends, and to his church, Resurrection Lutheran. An engineer to the end, Jerry used his head, his heart, and his hands to craft us a good life and we will miss him dearly.

He is survived by his wife Barbara (Feste) LaSee of New Berlin, WI, his son Thomas of Troy, MI, and his daughter Claire of Olympia, WA. He is also survived by his siblings James (Cathy) LaSee, Janet Courtney, Roger LaSee, Carol (Allan) Bauer, Joan (Tom) Zygarlicke, Helen (Jim) Losleben, and 23 nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, as well as his older brother Gilbert.

Gathering will be held for Jerry at Resurrection Lutheran Church, 12400 West Cold Spring Road, New Berlin, Wisconsin, Friday March 24, 2017, from 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM.  Gathering time continues on Saturday March 25, 2017, at 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM at Resurrection Lutheran Church.  A Memorial Service will be held immediately afterward at 11:00 AM.

In lieu of flowers memorials in Jerry’s memory to The Stout University Foundation or Resurrection Lutheran Church appreciated.
