Jason M. Lisko
Nov. 12, 1975 – March 8, 2019
Jason M. Lisko passed away on Friday, March 8, 2019 at the age of 43.
Jason was born in Hartford on November 12, 1975, to Steven and Christine
(nee Schulteis) Lisko.
He was raised in Allenton/ Hartford and graduated from Hartford High
School, Class of 1994. Jason married Janelle (nee Freitag) Lisko on Aug.
He worked as a mason foreman for Marriott Construction.
Jason had very fond childhood memories of playing ball at the Allenton
Park and spending summers on his grandparents’ farm. Jason began working
in the masonry trade at age 13, spending 30 years perfecting his craft.
Grandma Lisko said, “I guess God needed him more than we did, he
probably needed a really good mason.” Jason dedicated himself to
Marriott Construction for 22 years.
Jason found pride in knowing he and his crew constructed buildings with
strength and beauty. Often when we were traveling around, Jason would
say with a smile, “Look girls, daddy built that building.” He was
driven, dependable and deeply respected by his colleagues.
Jason showed his love to his family and friends by sharing his time,
skills and wisdom. Jason enjoyed fishing, grilling, baking, tinkering in
his garage, and snowmobiling, four-wheeling, camping, gardening and
creating memories with his family and friends. Jason ensured that the
kids were outside making memories of their own like he did as a kid,
teaching them how to be strong, resourceful and simply appreciate the
gifts in life. Some of our favorite moments are the backyard zip-line,
boating, snowmobiling in the field, campfires in our backyard, playing
board games and the pool he made in the bed of his truck when we were up
north. He showed those he loved honesty, respect, trust and passion. Our
minds will hold memories, our hearts will hold love and our faith lets
us know we will meet again.
