Jason R Schneider
Chilton, WI

Jason R. Schneider, age 45, died on September 6, 2022.  He was born April 6, 1977, son of Ken and Debbie (Redig) Schneider.  He attended Trinity Lutheran School, Rantoul, graduated Chilton High School in 1995, and graduated from Concordia University in Mequon in 1999.

Growing up on a farm, he was found spending countless hours with his grandfather, smoking cigars, going to Equity, hauling cattle, convincing his sisters to do his farm chores, driving tractor and ATV, and doing what he could to help out.  After his chores were finished, he loved to sit and listen to his grandma read him his favorite book, “Fraidy Cat”, over and over again.     

Many years and memories he had, hunting and fishing with his dad.  He had a sharp shot and was very successful.  There was always competition with his mom during sturgeon fishing, who was going to get one and who’s fish was going to be the biggest.  He would fit in at any table of Sheepshead or Texas Hold ‘em, but loved the countless hours sitting around the kitchen table with his family and friends playing cards.   And when he cooked….you weren’t going away hungry.  

Taking up a knack for fishing he started entering in several fishing tournaments throughout the years.  His fishings buddies and he made many memories and most of the time went home empty handed.  Recent years he upgraded his fishing boat experience to fishing King Salmon on Lake Michigan.  He loved being on the water and found peace and happiness while there.  He cherished the memories he had when his kids came out on the boat with him where they could be in a happy place.  

As a man of many talents, Jason had a great sense of humor and could talk to anyone.   He sang for many weddings and events.  He had a voice that echoed and was heard throughout the room and was able to move people’s emotion to love and appreciate God’s Grace to all of us, especially his mom and dad.   

Jason had the heart of a servant who went out of his way to help others and lighten the burdens  and bring joy in to their lives.  He served in numerous jobs over the years and, no matter where he found himself, he seemed to be able to gently lead people where they needed to find themselves.  This was most evident when Jason was given the opportunity to serve people and his community, especially when he was able to operate Schneider Family Funeral Home, in Plymouth.  

Jason’s personality and smile will be missed by many.  He is survived by his children, Samuel Schneider and Elise Schneider; his children’s mother, Angela Schneider; his parents, Ken and Debbie Schneider; his paternal grandfather, Clarence Schneider; step maternal grandfather, Bob Binversie; his sisters, Jennifer (Nic) Bolz and Jamie (Daniel) Wieting; nieces and nephews: Ella, Noah (Godchild), William, and Jack Bolz, Alydia (Godchild), Eliot, Iyla and Oriya Wieting and Godparents: David and Wanda Schneider and Fran Gay; aunts and uncles, cousins, and friends.  

He was preceded in death by his, maternal grandparents, Ronald and Kathy Redig and his paternal grandmother, Eileen Schneider.  

Funeral services will be, 11:00 AM, Wednesday, September 14, 2022, at Trinity Lutheran Church (N6080 W River Rd, Hilbert).  A time for gathering and visitation will be from 4 PM until 7 PM on Tuesday, September 13, 2022 at, Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 W Main St., Chilton) and at church from 9:30 AM until 10:45 on Wednesday, September 14 before the service.  Those wishing to watch a recording of the funeral service, a memorial video, and view flowers and gifts given to the family may do so by clicking HERE.

My condolences to Jason's family. I have fond memories of Jason in choir class and on our choir trips, he was a phenomenal singer. Cherish the memories.

I have so many of us growing up as memories and introducing Jason to city life...we had fun! Times in our 30s we lost touch and it came to this????...Jason I love you and miss your knowledge on things I was dumb at...I will always remember you??????

Bryan stock (Cousin ) - Sept. 10, 2022

Family of Jason: so sorry for your loss. Let the good memories live on. Jason is now in God's hands, let him be in great peace. God bless you all.

Though we don’t understand why, God takes another of His beloved children home. Faith in our Savior leads us to trust in His divine will and purpose for our lives.
Jason was one of those memorable students. Thorough in his work, an example and leader for others, funny, caring, and one who could easily brighten up a room. I’m not sure if he ever spent disciplinary time on the infamous “yellow dots”,
but his smile probably saved him many times. He took kite flying at recess to the extreme with multiple stunt kites flying at one time. So much could be said about his character, but what matters most is he came from a strong and active Christian family that worshiped, prayed and stayed together in Jesus. Though your loss will never go away, our comfort as God’s people is knowing that He loves us, forgives us, and has an eternal plan and place for us when our earthly journey ends - no matter the time, the circumstance or cause. That’s the faith in which Jason lived his life, surrounded by loving family and friends and grounded in an unshakeable faith. We all wait for the fulfillment of God’s promise of an eternal reunion in heaven with those we love.

Our heartfelt sympathies to Ken & Debbie, the Schneider and Wieting families.

I remember in Jr High when Jason and my son Jeremy “Bud” had to sing a duet. Jeremy froze and Jason picked up his part like it was meant to be. That was so nice of him to cover for Jeremy. My sincere condolences to to the entire Schneider family.

Ellie Hilton (Friend ) - Sept. 9, 2022
