Jerome T. ‘Jerry’ Hepp

April 9, 1958 – May 26, 2011

Jerome T. "Jerry" Hepp of Juneau, formerly of Waukesha, after a courageous struggle, went home to the Lord on Thursday, May 26, 2011, at the age of 53. Jerry was born in Waukesha on April 9, 1958, a son of Jerome and Joanne Hepp.

He was a longtime member of St. Mark’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, Waukesha. For 17 years, Jerry was a passionate and dedicated employee at the Harken Company. In his free time, he enjoyed bowling and watching wrestling. Jerry’s unique laugh is something many people will remember him by.

Jerry will be dearly missed by his parents, Jerome Hepp and Joanne Dobbeck; brothers, Jeffery (Sylvia) Hepp of Waukesha and James (Mary) Hepp of Mukwonago; sister, Joyce (John) Bannantine of Ames, Iowa; and nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, extended family and many friends.

Jerry was preceded in death by his sister, Jean; grandparents; and his stepfather, Ken Dobbeck.

Visitation will be held from 2 p.m. until the 4 p.m. funeral service Tuesday, May 31, at St. Mark’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, 424 Hyde Park Ave., Waukesha, WI 53188. The Rev. Larry Smith will be officiating. Private family burial will be at Prairie Home Cemetery, Waukesha.

In lieu of flowers, memorials to St. Mark’s Quilters (see address above) or to the family are appreciated.

Jerry’s family would especially like to thank the Harken Company for their caring employment opportunity and Clearview South Nursing Home for their help and support during Jerry’s stay.
