Jeffrey James Krueger, age 54, a longtime Janesville resident, passed away unexpectedly Sunday evening, April 28, 2019 at Mercyhealth Hospital & Trauma Center. He was born March 18, 1965 in Wausau, WI, the son of James W. and Debbra L. (Gensler) Krueger. He attended Wausau East high school. On July 11, 1987, he married the love of his life, Sharon M. Jones, in Janesville. He worked as a truck driver for many years, and most recently at SaniMax Co until his passing. Jeff was a very fun-loving person who absolutely enjoyed life! He will be remembered as a man who loved his wife, children, and grandchildren. He will be missed for his quick humor and wit. He was an avid car enthusiast who loved classic cars, especially his GTO. He also had the love for snowmobiling with family and friends. His huge heart and compassion have been instilled into his children and grandchildren, and will be missed dearly. He truly loved his wife and children, but had a huge soft spot for his four beloved grandchildren!
