Jerome “Jerry” Michael Zollner was born October 28, 1963, in Marshall, Minnesota, to parents Dennis and Judith (Redding) Zollner. He grew up in Wabasso, Minnesota, and was baptized, received his first communion, and was confirmed at Saint Anne's Catholic Church. Jerry attended the Wabasso High School, graduating with the class of 1982, before going on to farm and work with his family in their snowmobile business until 1999.
On January 26, 1985, Jerry was united in marriage to Jane Weber at the Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Marshall. They lived on various farms near Wabasso and raised two children. Years later, Jerry began driving truck for Cliff Viessman Trucking and spent another 20+ years behind the wheel prior to his passing.
Jerry enjoyed snowmobiling and taking many trips out west with family and friends. Going “up North” was an annual event each winter. He also enjoyed sprint car racing and watching his son, Andrew, race his quad four-wheeler. After years of dealing with various medical issues, Jerry died on Sunday, November 7, 2021, in Marshall, just 10 days after his 58th birthday. Blessed and eternal be his memory.
