JESKE, Heinz Victor

Heinz Victor Jeske was born October 3, 1955 to Heinz and Esther Jeske in Edmonton, Alberta. He was the youngest of four siblings: two sisters and one brother.

He spent his formative years growing up in Edmonton. He attended Salem Baptist Church, where he was baptized as a young teen and actively involved in the church youth. As a young man, he enjoyed being creative and working with his hands. He was also a bit of a prankster and loved having fun, often at others expense. In 1978 he wanted to expand his horizons and moved to St. Catharines, Ontario where he met Karin Schwarz. It did not take long before they were married in 1979 and were subsequently blessed with three children: Jon, Carrie and Ben. He returned to Edmonton with his family in 1993.

He was a gifted cabinet maker by trade, designing and building cabinetry in both commercial and residential environments. After working a number of years for Commercial Woodcraft he struck out on his own and started his own company. He was a hard worker and devoted many hours to his workplace. His designs were unique and his craftsmanship impeccable.

His strength of character could not be denied and was exemplified through his battle with health over the last ten years of his life. Throughout those challenges, he spoke of the goals he wanted to achieve and projects he wanted to complete.

On August 5, Heinz passed away peacefully in his sleep. He is survived by his wife Karin; children: Jon (Jenn), Carrie (Debayo), Ben (Brittany); sisters: Gabriele (Manfred) and Sigrid (Fritz); brother Wolfgang (Doris); seven grandchildren and numerous other relatives.

A Memorial Service will be held at Northgate Baptist Church, 13208 95 Street, Edmonton, AB, on Thursday, August 26th, 2021 at 11:00 am.

The family is saddened by his passing but are grateful that his pain and suffering are over. We know that he will walk again for he is in our Father’s hands.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute, 11220 83 Avenue NW, Edmonton, Alberta T6G 2B7.

So sad we could not make it to the memorial service. Heinz is gone too soon and we will miss him. He is with his Heavenly Father now. We added a memory picture from 65 years ago with Baby Ralph and Heinz at some family gathering a long time ago.
